Best Buy (instore only) has a cheap laptop among other tech goodies in its Doorbuster specials for this year’s Black Friday:
Top of the list of these Bonus Doorbuster deals is a notebook, a Toshiba A135-7404 for $229 that will also include a Canon all-in-one printer. While all 20 at each Best Buy store are sure to sell out within minutes, don’t get too excited about them, because they’re only packing an Intel Celeron processor, 512MB of RAM and Vista Home Basic. But still, $229?
The full Best Buy circular has more including a $399 Sony VAIO Laptop with Intel Pentium Dual-Core Mobile Processor T2310 (Model: VGN-NR110E/S), 1GB RAM, 15.4″ WXGA LCD display, 120GB Serial ATA hard drive (5400 rpm), and Windows Vista Home Premium that is likely a better choice. With only 15 per store it’s going to be tough to get one though. I think I’ll avoid the madness and stick with Amazon’s Virtual Black Friday if I feel an overwhelming need for bargains.
