On the Staples website it says the price in the store is $499.98.
However, the price in the story is $499.98 – instant savings of $70 =
$429.98 – $100 for turning in an old computer – $50 off computers (today
and tomorrow only) = $279.98 + $16.80 tax (6% in Michigan) = $296.78 -
$50 HP mail in rebate = $246.78 AR! (OR $346.78 if you don't have an
old computer to trade in.)
The laptop is only entry level, but it has terrific specs for the low price. Anyone looking for a new laptop should jump on this.
*Note that the old computer you trade in must be Windows XP or higher and must be able to boot up.

That’s a really good deal you found, Ashraf.
Especially for an “entry level.” Its specs are similar to my 17” Toshiba Satellite (my 1st laptop & only 2nd computer), I paid about $700, after a bunch of rebates, & actually has twice the Hard Drive…. (& to upgrade from Vista to 7 right now is at least $100-150).
Just 1 (hopefully not dumb) question: Aren’t most, if not all, new screens “Backlit”?
