Looks like a great deal. I'm surprised how good the specs are on the machine for such a low price!

For the last 5 years I have been a Java web app developer at www.officedepot.com and this morning, when some of us went to work on a Saturday for the promotion of new code to production, one of my colleagues grabbed a flier at the lobby and was impressed with this pricing also.

I didn't pay much attention since I am not in the market for a new laptop but he said that was a REALLY GOOD deal.

If I remember well, the screen is 15", right?

Hmmm... And we employees get 10% discount on top of that!
