A solid 17" laptop for $350 – and that ain't a typo

sataeTake your piggy bank. Now, smash it open — what have you? $350 plus change? And you need a laptop? Well, come right over here, sir. Yes, welcome to Wal-Mart. We’re going to… no, not a netbook. Sir, do you want to watch your Boston Public on a 10-inch screen? I thought not. Right over here, with the regular laptops, all the way to the left. Yes, it has a 17″ screen and a — what? No, I understand you only have $350. You say you won’t be a part of any criminal act? Admirable, sir, but we are not stealing the laptop. No, $350 is enough.

The Toshiba Satellite L355.
You want a DVD burner? Here you have it. A nice big screen? You see it. Full-size keyboard and number pad? Anything less would be uncivilized. Well-built, fairly well-equipped except for a slower-than-average 5400RPM hard drive (it’s big) and a less-than-stellar Celeron processor (it’s adequate). Yes, $350 is the actual price.

Excellent choice, sir.
