ive lately been doing a lot of researching trying to not make any more dumb purchases. i purchased 2 cheap laptops and now kind of regret not having done more research. i wanna be an informed shopper. whats the cheapest laptop with the latest standard features (including 802.11ac, 10/100/1000 gigabit lan, dvd/cd drive, big hard drive). Whats the best store to get the best deals? is it best buy, WalMart, Amazon, microcenter, etc.?

i have my eye on but i dont know if its the cheapest laptop meeting all my requirements. i asked the salesman at microcenter and he said next spring there will be new wifi technology devices on store shelves. isnt the next big wifi standard called 802.11ax? and isnt it due to be released in 2019?
