Semi-random PC price/performance reality check -- from Best Buy
The multiformat double-layer DVD±RW/CD-RW drive in this laptop supports LightScribe and lets you create your own discs full of movies, music and more. Its built-in wireless LAN capabilities give you access to your local network or area hotspots.
15.4" display, 2 gigs of RAM, dual-core AMD, 160 gig hard drive, Windows Vista Home Premium (which by itself lists for $239.99 at Best Buy), CD/DVD RW, and more. $549.99 after rebate.
Something tells me, with CES starting tonight, that it's inventory-clearing time.
