NewEgg's 72-Hour Pre-Black Friday Frenzy
NewEgg is having a 72-hour Pre-Black Friday Frenzy where they are guaranteeing the products featured will not drop lower on Black Friday â definitely a reassuring promise for those on the fence.
Two of the hottest deals to emerge from this sale are the ASUS X501A 15.6" Laptop for $249.99 and the Dell Inspiron 15R 15.6" Laptop for $479.99.
The ASUS X501A 15.6" Laptop features an Intel Celeron B820 1.7GHz processor, 2GB DDR3 memory and 320GB hard-drive. These are the new Sandy Bridge-based Celerons and if you throw in a 4GB or 8GB stick of memory in there, you'll have a very capable laptop for under $300.
The X501A is very comparable to the Asus X401A for $219.99 during the Sears Black Friday sale. The only difference is the X401A has a slightly better processor (B830 1.8GHz in the X401A vs. B820 1.7GHz in the X501A), but the performance gains between the two are minimal.
The Dell Inspiron 15R 15.6" Laptop features an Intel Core i5-3210M 2.50GHz processor, 8GB DDR3 memory, 1TB hard-drive and the Windows 8 operating system.
It compares very favorably with the HP Envy 15.6" Laptop for $499.99 during Best Buy's Black Friday sale. In fact, the Dell has a slightly larger hard-drive (1TB vs. 750GB) which will be a noticeable difference when if you plan on storing a lot of data on your laptop. And at $20 less than the HP, it's worth avoiding the wait and lines and picking up the Dell Inspiron right now.
Note: The HP Envy comes with Windows 8, the Dell Inspiron comes with Windows 7. If you purchase the Dell Inspiron, you can upgrade to Windows 8 for $15. Many analysts highly advise against the upgrade though and suggest sticking with Windows 7.
