with the other i3 Toshiba model now OOS, this is the next best deal with a lot of bang for the extra bucks ($350 vs $270)

 Not really...looks like the same specs but this one has AMD A10 (2600 on PassMark) versus the other 3rd gen i3 (3400 on PassMark).  This one has an extra 250GB of drive space and an extra 4GB of RAM.

You get a slower processor but more memory and drive space.  I would say they are about equal value laptops...but this one costs $80 more.  Spend that extra $80 on an SSD and another 4GB of RAM and you would crush this laptop.

there is also an i5 Lenovo or i5 Toshiba for $399 after coupon if that's a better option.

Where would you get a suitable SSD replacement and 4GB of RAM for $80?  The Unicorn Store?

A10 is better for gaming than i3 Toshiba model. Both are not for hard core gaming. Fry's usually has it on sale for $500 for A10 laptop so this is hot deal. Thanks OP.

I have a Toshiba Duo Core from about 2 years ago. It was a 4gb ram and 320 HD. How much faster will this be? Looking for a new laptop for me and passing mine to my kids.

I am going for the i5 Lenovo for $30 more.
