C-60 is not bad although a bit slow. ok for netbook games tho

I3 is good, 2 cores and 4 threads

I got the Acer 1830T 11.6" i3-380um, 4GB ram yesterday for $350 so not bad, just $100 more than the c-60 which I was going to get but caved into spending a bit more :facepalm:

actually after I saw the c60 I went to pick this up for $3xx.00 at Tigerdirect which was a steal and they had tons yesterday

but when I open the box it wasn't a u5600 but an I3. It was an open box so I think there was some mistake. ANyways it was $350 after tax

it may be able to be broken, but I am pretty sure that the ones that are working are recycled out to ebay. not through their ebay stores, but resellers.

it's a pretty good deal if you trade in a broken system, but not if your system is working. It's not like you get $50 off. It's more like you get a $50 trade in value and have to buy from them.

for many it may be better to sell and keep the difference or buy somewhere else.

It's a good deal if you have a broken computer. all you really need is a computer case and just throw in some old motherboard.

A deal like this is good on low end stuff.

The Best, cheapest bottom level lappy in this deal right is the c60. It's $250, has 1366x768, and ok netbook gaming

Memory express had them on sale (with a u5600) a while back for about $320, and I regret not buying one. Good deal on the I3, but the price is $399 on the TD site and sounds like you got a mixup.

C60 isn't that bad for web browsing, watching flash video (although make sure everything is updated to take advantage of hardware acceleration), watching locally stored video and LibreOffice. I found the main thing crippling my AO522 was the RAM. After a bump to 2gb, things are much better. Performance is comparable to my Thinkpad X61s with a C2D 1.6ghz.

Having said that I went for the C60 based on price. I wouldn't go for the C60 over the N570 on merit alone, just value for money. And at these prices (the $180 Gateway netbook springs to mind) there's no excuse on getting a single core chip.

FS Flyers are Friday through Thursday - wasn't it just on sale up until yesterday and now no longer on sale today?

New flyer week, new 'best' deals

Sorry OP but it looks like all prices have been jack-up from what you posted. The deal nets maybe a few bucks now, when you consider the taxes as well.I was considering getting a cheap laptop and trading in a broken one.
