Best Laptop Deals of the Week!

6 0
Being a moderator here on, I see hundreds and maybe thousands of deals every day. Below is a list of what I believe to be the best laptop deals of the week.

Here are the top 5 laptop deals of the week!

1.) Asus Laptop 14-inch LED, Intel i3 2330m (Sandy-Bridge), 4GB DDR3, 500GB HD, (1) USB 3.0, built-in facial recognition for $349.99 at Best Buy.

Why? The reason why I listed this as first is because this laptop is basically for everyone. Most people don't know this but the sandy bridge i3 almost benchmarks the same as the Nehalem i5. The ideal user for this laptop is for someone who surfs the web, listens to music, works on word docs, etc.

2.) HP Pavilion dm4-2180us, 14-inch, Intel i5 2430M, 6GB DDR3, 640GB HD, Fingerprint reader, HDMI for $479.99 AR @ Staples (Starts 2/20)

Why? This is probably the best price/performance laptop out there right now. This deal is not LIVE yet but it will be on Sunday 2/20. This laptop is pretty much middle-high end laptop, if you just surf the web and do word processing then this be overkill for what you are doing. I do believe this is somewhat future proof meaning this laptop should last for a while. The 14-inch size is key because as I've mentioned above smaller laptops usually cost more.

3.) Asus Zenbook (Ultrabook) UX21-ESL4,11.6-inch, Intel i5 2467M, 4GB DDR3, 128GB SSD, (1) USB 3.0, 0.7 inch thin + 2.8 lbs for $849.99 @ Microsoft Store

Why? Because its an ultrabook! This is one of the best PC ultrabooks on the market. Microsoft taking $150 off retail for this awesome looking ultrabook. The specs are pretty basic for an ultrabook. If you are an early adapter to technology this is something for you.

4.) HP Pavilion dv6t Quad Edition, 15.6-inch, Intel i7-2670QM, 1GB AMD Radeon 7470M, 8GB DDR3, 750GB HD, Blu-ray player for $770.49 after coupon code "NBDV6967" @

Why? This is probably one of the best laptops on the market for only $770.49! The specs are pretty much top of the line, i7, 1GB graphics card, 8GB DDR3, 750GB HD and this even comes with a Blu-ray player! This laptop is ideal for programmers/developers, graphic designer, or a gamer. My personally recommendation is upgrading the resolution to this from 768p to 1080p (+$150) so you can enjoy the FULL HD.

5.) Apple MacBook Air (Refurb), 11-inch, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB DDR3, 64GB Flash Storage, Nvidia GeFource 320M Graphics for $699 @

Why? Because its Apple :D.

I might have missed a few deals so if you think you found a really good laptop deal, feel free to share it here. (please try not to self-promo through referral link)
