the laptops were priced $299 if i remember. The processors they had was a Pentium D T2xx. They only had 1GB of i think DDR2 667 O_O. I think my dad already added another gig to those laptops soon after he got them, i think same speed or lower.

At circuit city, people camped out for about 10 hours before we opened at 5am to get the 300 dollar laptops.

I would have rather worked that 10 hours and just bought a 500 dollar laptop that would be better.

Black friday has amazing deals, if you're willing to get up at 3am.

Yes . Locally owned though, and we're a franchise store, so we don't have to use just radioshack...we have other distributors as well. But its not as expensive when you get things for cost .
