Although I don't like HP laptops for their quality, the HP model is using the new Trinity chip from AMD (based on processor numbering) and that is definitely a good price for it.

The Lenovo laptop is using one of the E-series Brazos processors and is going to have very sluggish performance. For $299, it may be a good deal for basic browsing, word processing etc.

right, I try to post the sub $300 lappy for people on limited budgets or as you say, those who need a laptop to travel/check emails basic web browsing/grandma use, etc.

PS

the HP in the OP is 3.0 USB enabled.

yeah, the HP looks like a bad ass laptop from what I can tell. wish I could get all the specs listed, but hopefully they'll be up in the AM.

obviously not! that doesn't mean they dont sell the product at regular price.

in this case it does, if an SKU doesn't come up prior the sell date at BB, it's not yet on the website.

Model # matches all but one letter and the SKU from OP is listed as the part number, so I wouldn't be surprised if these are the specs of the Lenovo $299:

Rocket scientists or laptops?

Yes, I actually am a rocket scientist. Yes, I would buy a $300 laptop, not for work necessarily, but for my kids. I may be a rocket scientist, but I am also cheap!

For the non rocket people today BB has
a Toshiba for $269.99
Toshiba 15.6"1 Satellite Laptop with 2GB DDR3 Memory and 320GB Hard Drive

The Lenovo is perfect for grandma use as you said. Just bought two of them - my mother and her live-in older friend can't agree on sharing their 8 3/4 year old desktop, which is also perfectly adequate for their use. Her friend visits every sweepstakes site in the world, so I want her off that PC anyway. They bought identical laptops which I will configure at the same time. If you delete all the loaded stuff and put on just what they need, it should work just fine.
