Well, the big deal last year was the $378 laptop that Walmart offered which didn’t have any really amazing specs (which is obvious for the price). This year, however, they will be offering a $398 laptop starting on November 5 and going until November 11. So this isn’t a Black Friday sale but is amazing enough to be one. Here is a list of the specs for Compaq Presario V5305WM laptop:
  • 2.00 GHz Mobile AMD Sempron™ Processor 3300+
  • 512MB 333MHz DDR (upgradable to 2GB)
  • ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M IGP (128MB)
  • 60GB 5400RPM Hard-Drive
  • 24X DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive
  • 15.4” WXGA High-Definition BrightView Widescreen (1280 x 800) Display
  • Integrated 56k modem, 100mb Network Card and 54g 802.11b/g Wireless Connectivity
  • 1 ExpressCard/54 Slot (Not PCMCIA)
  • 10.2?(L) x 14.1?(W) x 1.38?(min H) /1.77?(max H)
  • 6.4 lbs

Lets see, 15 per store, 6 stores in the metropolitan area I live in means 90 units for a population of 300,000. Yeah no problem. I show up with body armor and an M-60 and I might be able to get one.

Another draw people into the store and watch the fist fights break out deal from Walmart.
