I was just looking at this laptop yesterday and planned on purchasing it. The price was $579.99 (I believe) and now look at it today!

According to BFads.net... it will be 599.99 on Blackfriday (?)

When exactly does this deal start? is it Black Friday or Cyber Monday or is the deal already over?

I guess so... not always the case, though from past experiences. So just wondering if anyone knew for sure... could be a Cyber monday only deal.

ahh... I just mapped the closest Office Max and it's 50 miles too far :shock:

I don't do Black Friday often and don't really get into it, but I'm trying to get a laptop and a nice one... one that'll last me years and years like the current one I have. I'm not trying to spend too much over $700.00...

the backlit keyboard is a big PRO with this Toshiba because, like now, I'm using the computer at night/after work and have to have a light on to see my keyboard.

have you guys seen any other laptops that are nice for the price?

i5 processor should be plenty, i7 would be nice, but not necessary... i was told to stay away from i3s by a friend that works at bestbuy since I do audio/video editing (cubase and sony vegas)and use photoshop pretty often as well.

i highly recommend Toshiba. I have a C655 and my dad bought the L755 with the 5 g/640 i4 processor last weekend. I bought my husband a newer model of the c 655 for christmas....
go look on the Toshiba website and then search the current ads because bf is not always the best buy on bigger laptops.

I have 2 Toshiba laptops....

I just bought one at Office Max maybe 2mo ago. A floor model as it was the only one left. I love it and I love that the keyboard is LED backlit. I run photoshop on mine also with no problems and it has the i5 processor. I had bought a Sony Vaio before this one and took the Sony back when I saw this one

this is the one I bought which has been discountinued

Toshiba! FTW!
For a faster laptop create a USB startup disk from the laptops os and then wipe the laptop and install from the usb drive to get a clean os install without the slackware/malware present on new "optimized" laptops. :wink:

Any chance this deal will be available online as well as in store?
