Newegg has this Dell Inspiron 15
for $350 on shell shocker for the next 3 hours (until 10AM PST 7/25/2013). For an entry level laptop, I don't know how you can go wrong with this thing. If you slap a $90 Samsung 840 SSD
in there it would really purr (or wait for the 840 EVO
which will be even better). Get it while it's hot. I wish I needed a laptop right now.
