Deal: Acer laptop under $400 and without rebates (in-store only)

Office Depot wants you to visit their store! One of this week's mega-teasers is the Acer Aspire AS4730-4857 laptopicon for $390 and that's without any mail-in rebates. This is is limited to one per customer and there are no rainchecks, so you'd better run "The ODP" ;-)

And even though the price is $390, this is not a toy laptop. It is quite good for most tasks. Just take a look at the major specifications here:
  • 14.1"-widescreen WXGA (1280 x 800) display (mobility advantage over 15.4")
  • Intel dual-core T3200 processor (2GHz)w/1MB L2 cache
  • up to 667MHz frontside bus
  • 2GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM memory (max 4gb)
  • 160GB 5400-rpm (SATA) disk
  • SuperMulti dvd burner
  • Intel GMA 4500MHD (stealing up to 1759MB shared memory)
  • wireless alphabet soup (b,g,N)
  • all the usual features such as memory card reader, ethernet, usb, etc
  • It even has an ExpressCard/54 slot (and also supports the /34 card, also)
  • 6-cell lithium-ion battery (2200 mAh)
  • weights about 5.3 pounds

Again please note that the $390 price is only good in-store. The online price is $390. This is an awesome deal for a 14.1" laptop with 2gb of memory. If you can find it that is, that's the catch :(
