Walmart continues to offer the refurbished 5.7-lb. ASUS Intel Core i5 2.5GHz 15.6" LED-Backlit Laptop
in Black, model no. K53E-BBR23, for $398
. Opt for free Site-to-Store pickup
to dodge the $4.97 shipping charge. That's tied with last month's refurb mention as the second-best price we've seen for an ASUS 16" laptop with this processor. Sales tax is added where applicable. Features include an Intel Core i5-2450M 2.5GHz dual-core processor, 15.6" 1366x768 widescreen LED-backlit LCD, 4GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, Gigabit Ethernet, webcam, media card reader, 4-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
A 90-day warranty applies, although it's unclear who supports it.
