Where do you see that? Online or local?

Thnx.

Actually that was a local sale at Staples. They had it grouped w/ the Vista laptops so of course the big prices difference immediately catches your eye. I usually see alot of items in each store that will never be advertised online since they're usually 1 or 2 pieces only available at that particular store.

That's not bad. I paid about $300 for a refurbished IBM Thinkpad 233mhz about 5 or so years ago. I still have it but hardly use it since it's so slow.

Now If I can talk the little woman into the money to buy it! :lol:
