Asus 14.0 Notebook on clearance at WalMart $150. I purchased 2 at my local store in GA and they had 9 more available. I didn't see the item available online, only the refurbished. The item # is 088622721596. This is not an open-box, but all open box computers were an additional 10% off. Original Price $348.00

Which did you fail - Geography, English, or both?

WalMart does not have any sort of online stock checker do they?

no need to be rude, I at first did not see the first part of his post.

WalMart clearance is on a store-by-store basis so I don't recommend wasting your time unless you and the OP live in the same city.

Georgia is a big state. You can't be more specific?

I'm in Douglasville, GA

Which WalMart in GA, please, OP?

i can run faster than that CPU.

Please be more specific. Which part of Douglasville?

You are not the blade runner are you?

There is only 1 WalMart actually in Douglasville. This is on Highway 5. I don't know the exact address. Lithia Springs is only a few miles aways so they probably have them as well.

Ironically, at that price the Win7 license alone is worth more than the computer!

I think he was just joking with you...

Yea, WalMart is definitely random when it comes to clearance deals on a store to store basis, but nevertheless, thanks for taking the time to post the deal, OP!

Hello,

I can confirm you will find some nice laptop deals coming up very soon as well from what a Wal-Mart Representative told me. Wal-Mart is getting new and improved electronics line up. In stores they mark down approximation of 30 laptops because they had windows 7, and it came down from above to get rid of them asap prices were no higher than $200. This Sunday you should be surprise as well because now are going to go for the touch screen notebook pcs in their line up keep an eye open for some very nice deals at your local Wal-Mart.

On WalMart.com you can select your local store and it will either give you an option to pick it up today or say limited stock in most cases.

Well crap. I'd jump on this if I had a way to check local store inventory...

Ya wish there was a way to check local store inventory.

Clearance pricing is ymmv at WalMart

But you can

800 call wmart

The deal is so particular. Thanks for taking time to share it. Give a green.

Not in store anywhere in Memphis, TN.

Just reporting.

I found this to be true in the dallas area. Saw lots of rad tags at around the $200 mark, yet all the laptops were gone!

*BTW, the 2 second "instant on" is resuming from sleep, not from power on.

$299 in Richmond, VA

Oh come on.. It's not that bad. Can handle basic usage and web browsing. What else can you get in $150?
You cant compare android shit and Windows 7.

i dont know, just not spending $150 and saving that money sounds better than buying this junker.

nice deal.. too bad!! shows as $290 in Bay Area.

My WM over the last few days removed all of the display models awaiting new ones.
I asked where are they and where is the store stock of the unopend ones, he said all were sent to another store.

buy this and upgrade the cpu to core i3. For $250, you can have a very fast laptop

That's not going to work at all because:
1. This machine is an AMD based motherboard and can't take an Intel CPU.
2. The processor your posted is for a desktop.
3. Most laptops don't have the capability of upgrading the processor without replacing the entire motherboard.

nevermind. info found in op

New and refurd would not have the same sku
or the same UPC number

Do you just cut the motherboard to jam this Intel I3 Desktop chip into the AMD Laptop socket or do I have to also cut a hole in the case so the chip will fit?

I was able to remove the cpu with some bolt cutters, but I'm not sure how to install the i3 chip? I tried duck tape, and it's holding now, but for some reason the laptop no longer powers on
