Well, a bit disappointed when I noticed that the Lenovo laptop for $250 is a refurbished laptop. Anyone have any comments on the B960 processor? This will be for very simple tasks (for my dad). I'm just a bit hesistant on refurbished products. Does anyone know about the warranty for refurbished products?

Also, I have a question about shipping with best buy/futureshop. Does my shipping address have to be the same as my credit card address? I'm just wondering because I'm visiting my parents for christmas and I woud like it delivered to my parents' home and not my credit card address. Is this possible? Thanks

This is my first post, although I have followed RFD for a long time. There is no "entitlement", things are either a good deal or they're not. And personally judging by this years flyers there aren't very many good deals at all. So for our information could you please point out the "wonderful" boxing day deals that only you can see?

Got the wife a B940 and paired with an SSD and 8GB RAM, she has nary a complaint. She doesn't do much on it but the SSD makes the biggest difference.

Hey, I bought this laptop last year for my dad, for simple task-web surfing, email etc. So far its holding up fine. The word "refurbished" usually scares people but i have no issues with it. Like i said its held its own and nothings gone wrong. With a Dual Core processor, 4GB of ram its more than enough for everyday normal use.

As for shipping to your parents house and not using your credit card. What you could do is, when asked for a shipping address enter your parents address, and home address just use yours. This is all done at checkout at the futureshop website.

Cool, thanks for the info. For some reason, I had it in my head that they needed to be the same address, but I might have just made that up. :D So it's totally okay if the shipping/billing addresses don't match then?

The Shipping Address is whoever you want it shipped to, in this case its your parents address. The Billing/Home address is whoever is getting the bill in this case its you. So it doesn't matter.

All I wanted was the Sandisk 64GB micro SDXC for the same price as Black Friday :( Didn't even get close.

This is a joke. the vast majority of these "doorcrashers" have been this price or lower through the year for a lot of items. PS3 controller for 39.99? Been that price at amazon for a month. LOTR trilogy on bluray for 39.99? I got it for 10 less last year. Star wars trilogy for 75? Got it last year for 50. The worst part is some dumb suckers are still going to line up for this nonsense. Pathetic.
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.

The DYNEX HDMI cables on page 7 are priced the same as the flyer online right now. $3.99 for 3ft, $6.99 for 6ft, and $9.99 for 12ft.

Looking at getting the Samsung 46" LN46E550F7FXZC. BB/FS reviews give it mediocre ratings (2.4/5), whereas amazon.com is 4/5.
4/5 on amazon.com is because they regularly had ridiculous cheap deal for it whereas here we pay double the price for the same tv
