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?



It plugs into the USB port

Show us..... and get out of here.

Any way we can get a scan of the receipt? My WalMart has them and may price match if I can prove the price....

Thanks

Are you retarded or something? I hate when people talk like they know when they really don't know crap.

I previously bought this at WM for the 290 price in the link. Warning it does not come with the MS Office Starter like the page says. Also I ended up returning it after a few days because it was choking on some youtube vids.

Basic web browsing - Good
Battery Life ~ 4hrs during moderate use (N64 emu playing ocarina of time no lag btw)
13 hrs on standby, 4 days on hibernate. Gives you the option whether to choose and gives rough time for each.
Decent startup time, great resume from standby time, and if you are major particular about speed I believe it can be upgraded to an SSD but that ruins the price point in my opinion.

Light laptop and nice screen


MAJOR fingerprint magnet!
The mouse buttons are intergrated into the touchpad, and feel flimsy.
Chokes on some browsing


I did return this as I did not like it for 290 (313 after tax) but for half the price I think it is worth it.

I checked several stores in Lexington, KY, they all had it on clearance, but marked at $290. Nobody would give me the $150 price.

Their clearance prices vary

Price is $290 at the WalMart I just visited in Austin TX.

Surprised there is so much green when this deal has hardly been recreated. All these WalMart deals are YMMV and usually are never found.

i think if I had a receipt scan I could probably convince someone to honor the price....

If I lived in Oahu, I probably wouldn't be playing on my computer.

Should that read "Nothing costing less than $500 in stock at ..."

WalMart in Pooler, GA has 3 but they are priced at $290 as of this post so YMMV

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
