Notebook computer for $800


Averatec_av3250 Amazon has a special deal on the Averatec AV3250H1-01 notebook computer that is a phenomenal deal for anyone looking for a cheap laptop.  The AV3250 sports an AMD Athlon XP-M 2200+, DVD/CD-RW, 512 MB of RAM, 60 GB hard drive and a 12.1" display.  This is one of the cheapest deals I’ve seen and looks perfect for the student in your life who needs a new laptop.  The Amazon special is $999.99 with a $200 mail-in rebate making this less than $800 for a full-featured notebook.

I picked up an earlier version of this model last year. My laptop needs are fairly limited and this filled the bill quite well.

The only thing I would caution someone on is the battery life is pretty short. If I squeeze out two hours, I feel like I’m doing good. For $800 its a pretty good little machine, but if you need something that’s going to last a cross country flight, you might want to think twice.
