The $400 laptop is back!

And you don't even need to submit a rebate to get it at this price! The Netbooks are giving the entry-level laptops are a run for their money, and the consumers are giving because they get more products at lower prices.

Case in point the Compaq CQ50-215nr, an exclusive at Best Buy, offered at $400 with no rebates. This is quite good for general-purpose usage, you get two gigabytes of memory, a reasonable 160gb hard disk, AMD dual-core, and a 15.4" widescreen display. It includes all the other usual features, and it's one per household.

Granted, laptops that cost twice as much have more features, or offer better performance, battery life and such, but if the price is your #1 priority, then this is a very good price, especially if you are the type of person that hates having to go through the rebate process!
