$295 CAD (All-In)
As you know, I've been a sworn enemy of all N-Series Laptops for the longest time now. I've frequently regarded their performance as garbage.
That's changed somewhat, with recent N-Series CPU launches reporting decent CPUMarks. Add to that upgradeability on some models, and we start to reach an attractive price/performance situation. The big selling point here is the cool, quiet, operation and the modern display compared to refurbished laptops at this price range.
Enter the Dell Wyse 5470 at $295 CAD (All-in, Shipped, Ontario), with an effective pre-tax price of $261.06.

The above represents reasonable performance from a Celeron N-Series CPU, an impossible statement just two years ago.

For those of you interested in a reasonable performance thin-light laptop with a modern display, this is a serious consideration. Equivalently priced refurbished units might have comparable processing power, but they'll come at the expense of size (bulk) and display aesthetic (i.e. not-as-nice screens).
Something to consider.
