I think you are confusing the Black Friday sales with the weekly or weekend ads that they also run. Most retail stores run a Black Friday ad for jsut a few hours but also have ads that go over the weekend adn then for the whole week as well.

Made it fun when i was at Wal-Mart to explain this to customers when they asked why a specific item was no longer on sale.

my dad got 2 cheap laptops from Circuit City last Black Friday. I face palm for how slow those laptops go running Vista Premium. The lowest priced laptops or desktops, my dad freaks out n wants one badly. I tell him it's using slower speed RAM, then he mentions right away about not gaming n i say it's not about gaming dad, but having RAM below standard speeds n thus having lesser performance overall. He just pffts.

oh boy.

The slower speed RAM wouldn't matter too much. For a laptop, DDR2-667 is barely slower than DDR2-800. It would really matter more on the amount of RAM. If he got a Vista machine with 1GB of RAM, which I have seen plenty selling those, then it would cause lag. However, 2GB of DDR2-667 or 2GB of DDR2-800 would work fine for Vista.
