3rd Gen Ivy Bridge with Windows 8 Laptop for $399.99 – Best Buy Pre-Black Friday Deal
If you don’t want to deal with the stress on the morning of Black Friday to shove through hordes of people, Best Buy is offering some pretty enticing Black Friday deals this week (and the days leading up to BF). Today you’ll find a 3rd Gen Core i3-3110M for only $399.99. This is one of the cheapest 3rd Gen Windows 8 laptop we’ve found, considering most laptops in this price range are usually powered by AMD E-series bargain CPUs.
Clocking in at 2.4 Ghz, the dual-core Core i3 3rd Gen comes with Intel HD 4000, actually powerful enough to let you play some modern games (I’ve been playing Guild Wars 2 on a Core i5 3rd Gen ULV, at much slower CPU + GPU clock speed and its chugging along fine). Sure you’re not exactly pushing highest detail settings, but again, its a $400 laptop. 4GB of RAM rounds out the offering plus a 500GB hard drive. You’ll even get a USB 3.0 port plus built-in webcam and microphone.
For a relatively clean looking machine with the latest operating system, this Toshiba is a pretty enticing deal at $400.
