Frys.com NEVER has anything available in store when they have these ridiculously good deals like this.

True that.

Gen1 i3 processor - don't see many of these being sold as new these days

WalMart had an Acer Aspire, same CPU, same specs actually all around, minus Win8 upgrade... which is how I found it, I don't like Win8. Anyways I made a post about it, was $290 in WalMart B&M, I put one on layaway. They are gone in my local Wallyworld, but the price ended up going down to $248.88 for me when I checked my layaway last night, so I was pretty happy. If you want Win7 instead of Win8, and like the specs on this laptop, you can find Acer and Asus ones in Walmarts for $250-290 on clearance.

1st gen i3.. you can get a sandybridge for just about the same price at frys. the changes in sandybridge are well worth the pennies
