These days, getting a PC for $1,200 is no big deal. Even two PCs for that price is pretty run of the mill.
Starting on Thursday, though, Best Buy will offer for that price a "PC Home Makeover" that includes three PCs--a laptop, desktop and Netbook--as well as a monitor and router. Even in-home Geek Squad set-up is included.
The package includes an HP Slimline desktop (model s5212y), an 18;.5-inch monitor, HP mini Netbook as well as a "media-savvy" laptop (model G60-535DX) along with a Netgear 802.11-G router and in-home setup of each of the components.
Fake Steve’s take: “Best Buy and HP are going to announce a Win7 promo package: a desktop PC and monitor, a laptop, a netbook and a router -- for $1,199. Yes, that's exactly what our least-expensive iMac costs, all by itself. Sigh.”
