    HOT Notebook deal @ staples TODAY ONLY

    If anyone missed out on the famous ze1201 or whatever it was deal in september at staples, lightning has struck twice.

    HP ZE4000 = 1044

    http://www.staples.com/Catalog/Confi...489&PageType=1

    Minus seven-five-nine-seven-one = 50 off 500
    Minus nine-one-nine-zero-three = 100 of BTO notebook

    Price = 894

    Minus $100 HP rebate on BTO pavilion notebook:

    Minus $100 staples rebate:

    http://www.staplesrebates.com/weblog...omoCd=02-51738


    Price is $694

    Free shipping which normally costs $75

    Purchase also qualifies for a FREE usb floppy drive:

    Drive must be purchased from hpshopping.com for $49.99 + ship with a $50 rebate.

    This laptop also comes with 2 batteries.


    Is it the hottest thing under the sun? Nope...but it's decent. If someone is looking for a laptop for their kid at college or is a student themselves, you could do worse than this price. Better too I know, but it's still good IMO.

    Its an ok deal for $700. Definetly not worth $1044 though. I got on the 1201/4101 deal and am quite satisfied. More computer for less money.

    They are giving you a Mobility CPU and a decent video card for a laptop - two of the more difficult things to upgrade in a laptop. If you want to game you may need more ram but that is readily available - some deals here on this board.

    You get a Lithium battery which is what you want today, and a decent office suite - Quattro Pro/WordPerfect.

    Its not worth upgrading to a combo or even a better Cpu since you might just as well get a better laptop deal to begin with. For a basic laptop though this is just fine.

    Dell has been running some good laptop deals lately too.
    My buddy just bought a 2650 Se for $1037. P4 1.7 mobility, 256Mb,30Gb,CDRW/DVD combo drive,free shipping.

    It wasn't for me. Someone I know, asked me 2 weeks ago to find a decent price for a laptop for their daughter for xmas/college gift.
    She's not a gamer, and for what it cost to add more ram, I felt it would be cheaper just to find a good deal on that separately and add it in some other time. The extra 128 meg sodimm was hardly worth the extra $99 I think HP/staples wanted for that upgrade.

    P.S. they were giving two lithium batteries, a free extra one.

    These are people that, left to their own devices, would spend $35 at staples for a standard logitech optical wheel mouse or something. Bargain hunters? BAH!

    So I find that deal for them, with a second battery and the free shipping and the free USB floppy drive, plus $350 off. All told something in the area of 500-550 in savings. First deal to come along that cheap in the last 2 weeks, since the 1201 deal they missed out on. Been looking for them ever since she called me 2 days after the $200 BTO + $100 rebate deal ended.

    Do they buy it? Nope...husband wants to wait....to find a better price. I KNOW any of us deal hunters could, and will, but on their own? They'd barely know how to submit for the rebate once they got it yet alone search out these coupon codes and apply them, or anything else.

    Let them go buy a cheap dell with an intel desktopium 4 bunged in a notebook, like so many oems do now, and have wacky adventures in speed step or lack thereoff .

    For folks on a budget AND on a time frame, for a daughter whose idea of gaming is Simcity 3K, this woulda been jusssst fine. Oh well...

    Hell they ain't even really friends to begin with ;)

    Yeah, I know what you mean friend, It astounds me how people will overspend on items when deals are all around if you open your eyes.

    I was in CompUSA last night getting the MS optical mouse, ($5 IR, $5 MiR), while there I observed a guy buying a laptop. The floor salesman had brought up a shopping cart and was filling it up with stuff for this guy and his laptop.

    Laptop,case,software,games,minimouse,UPS...and on and on...
    Everything full retail of course, and a junko Toshiba to boot...
    That salesman was like a shark in a minnow tank. I wanted to go over and grab the customer by his collar to get him out of harms way.

    How can basically bright people be such airheads?
