, that's $7 under our mention of a refurb from a month ago (which requires rebate hassles) and the lowest total price we could find for a refurb by $70. (For further comparison, we saw a new one for $7 more in February.) It features an Intel Pentium B980 2.4GHz dual-core processor, 15.6" 1366x768 LED-backlit LCD, 4GB memory, 500GB hard drive, 802.11n wireless, webcam, USB 3.0, media card reader, 6-cell battery, and Windows 8 64-bit. (It lacks an optical drive.)
Note: A 90-day warranty applies, but it's not clear who backs it.
