Re: Best Laptop under $500 (USA)
I just picked this unit up from Tiger Direct:
ASUS K55A-BI5093B Laptop Computer - 3rd generation Intel Core i5-3210M 2.5GHz, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, DVDRW, 15.6" Display, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
They had a deal for this laptop with a laptop case and a mouse, all for $380.
I think they sold out, but hopefully they will get some more in!
