    Looks like a good deal to me. If you don't care about the design it's well worth your money. For $200 more you might get your hands on a i5 processor but it's up to your needs.

    i went to Best Buy

    picked up a gateway laptop for 450

    they have some sweet deals, i'd check them out if i were you.

    i never buy anything in the store...however this is one purchase i feel that i came out on top with.
