I was at Best Buy yesterday and found an Quad Core AMD A8-4500M for 429.00. It is not on sale, but it is the cheapest A8 I've found by a bit. I couldn't find it on their website, and neither could they when purchasing. I wanted to verify it had Hdmi...but they let me open it in store.
Keyboard is soft, but responsive. Screen is bright. Sound is clear. It has Dolby Digital. Numeric keypad. It comes with a free copy of Dirt 3 from Steam. Be Gentle....
Going golfing. Sorry I wont be able to update post for a few hours if there are any questions.
