I got my toshiba a135-4666 for $399 brand new. It has a 1.7ghz pentium dual core, 1gb ram, 80gb hdd, dvd burner, 15.4 inch screen. Just check your local best buy, office depot, staples, etc ads on sundays because that is when the new deals come out. I had to go to office depot a little before 9:00am, because that is when it opens and there was already a little group of people waiting to go inside. If you go later, then it will probably be sold out.
