Future Shop has a pretty sweet deal on an ASUS laptop just loaded with a 750 GB hard drive, 8GB of RAM (memory), and an Intel Pentium 2117U processor. On sale for $399.99, you save $80 off the original price of $479.99.
Laptop deals are hard to compare apple to apples as there are so many different brands and configurations within a brand and even a model. However, I found the exact same model with an inferior amount of RAM for a higher price elsewhere. Best Buy has the ASUS X551CA with the same size of hard drive but only with 6GB of RAM for $499.99. So not only are you getting more RAM at Future Shop, you are getting your computer for $100 cheaper.
Most computers around the $400 price range these days are clocking in around a 500GB hard drive with 4GB of RAM, sometimes 6GB. ASUS might not be the first name you think of when you say “I need a new computer” but you can get a lot of value tucked into one of these units for a price that cannot be beat.
You will receive free shipping with your computer purchase as it costs over $20.
