Anyone buying a Black Friday laptop?

Is this a good deal?


It'd be primarily used for law school. Could this handle gaming, too? I know gaming laptops are an oxymoron. What about Thinkpads? Lenovo does have a Black Friday online discount going on right now.

A Thinkpad with similar numbers would be about $600+, and I wouldn't have to wait in the cold, though I don't mind it that much. Would quality be high enough to justify the price?

It would do what you wanted... Personally, I would go with the $480 package (same computer except it has 4GB RAM and 250GB hard drive, wired mouse and whatever - the $380 package has 3GB and 160GB hard drive). If you are using this for school, you may wanna go ahead and 'upgrade' and get MS Office Home/Student at the same for $49 and save $100; MS Office is on sale if you buy a new computer with Windows.

At one of the Best Buys here, the line started forming early this evening. On the local news, they showed people sitting in recliners playing on laptops and stretched out on air mattresses watching TVs with portable generators whilst waiting in line outside Best Buy. They will begin handing out 'tickets' for various items at 3AM and the stores open at 5AM.
