A best bet is the refurbished 5.5-lb. Toshiba Satellite PSC16U-03504W AMD Athlon II 2.2GHz 15.6" Widescreen Notebook (pictured) for
$243.73 with free shipping. (It's the top notebook on the right-hand side.) That's $106 under our June mention of a new one (this one's a refurb) and the lowest total price we've ever seen for this notebook. Features include an AMD Athlon II P340 2.2GHz dual-core processor, 15.6" 1366x768 widescreen LCD, 3GB RAM, 320GB hard drive, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, media card reader, 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Premium 32-bit.
