Happy Cheap Laptop … Uh, Independence Day

With all the news we bring you about sub-$500 mini-notebooks, sometimes we forget that you can get some of the most powerful systems we review for around the same price, especially on holiday weekends. We felt it was our patriotic duty to inform you, dear reader, of some of the biggest Independence Day laptop deals. Circuit City has the a 15-inch HP Pavilion dv6833us with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 250GB hard drive for a low $699 (after rebate). It includes 802.11a/g/n. Did we mention free shipping? Newegg also has lots of deals going on, with free shipping on most products. You can get an Acer Aspire AS5520-5281 with an 1.9-GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 for $649. The notebook sports a 15.4-inch screen, 3GB of memory, and a 250GB hard drive. Those are some of the cheap laptops we know of thus far. Techbargains will be updating their deals over the weekend (check the notebook bargains here). Rumor has it HP is going to have a nice blowout sale starting tomorrow. Perhaps they’re making room on the shelves for new Intel Centrino 2 systems, like the dv5?
