Staples offers the 7.3-lb. Acer Aspire AS7560-Sb819 AMD A6 1.4GHz 17.3" Widescreen Notebook for $449.99 with free shipping. That's a $144 drop and the lowest total price we've ever seen for a new 17" quad-core laptop shipped. Sales tax is added where applicable. It features an AMD A6-3400M 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 17.3" 1600x900 LED-backlit widescreen LCD, 6GB RAM, 640GB hard drive, dual-layer DVD burner, HDMI, 802.11n wireless, webcam, 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Of note, you can trade in a qualifying laptop for a $100 Visa gift card. That'll knock the above price to $349.99.
