, that's tied with last week's mention as the best price we've seen for an Inspiron 15R laptop with an Ivy Bridge Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM since Cyber Monday, when we saw one for $480 shipped. (For further comparison, we saw this laptop with only 6GB of RAM and half the hard drive space for $50 less last week, since expired.) Sales tax is added where applicable. It features an Intel Core i5-3210M 2.5GHz Ivy Bridge dual-core processor, 15.6" 1366x768 LED-backlit LCD, 8GB RAM, 1TB hard drive, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth, webcam, 6-cell battery, and Windows 8 64-bit. Deal ends December 24.
