17" Toshiba Laptop for $349 at Walmart (Starting Sunday)
Starting Sunday, Walmart is expected to have a 17" Toshiba Satellite L355 for $348. This is a good price for a 17" screen, with a couple "yeah, but"s. It comes with an Intel Celeron processor, so it's not as peppy as many other laptops out there right now. It also comes with Windows Vista home basic, so you cannot upgrade to Windows 7 for free.
If you are just looking for a good laptop with a nice large screen, because you'll be doing your homework on it, or reviewing spreadsheets for hours a day, this is a good deal for you. It does have 3 GB of RAM and a 250 GB hard drive, so that is pretty average for the under $500 price range. If you need something with more computing power for larger applications, you'll probably want to pass.
As with a lot of really good Walmart deals, I would expect these to go fast. Our Walmart is open 24 hrs, so if you want to make sure you can score this deal, I would be in there at midnight.
