Toshiba Direct cuts up to $350 off a selection of Toshiba Satellite laptops, with prices starting at $339.99. That beat's our mention from last week, when we saw up to $320 off, and puts many models at the lowest total price we could find. Shipping starts at $24.99, or get free shipping on orders of $499.99 or more. Deal ends December 16. A couple of best bets:
OfficeMax offers the 3.15-lb. Dell Inspiron 11 Intel Celeron 1.4GHz 11.6" LED-Backlit Touchscreen Laptop, model no. i3137-3751sLV, for $279.99 with free shipping. That's $20 under our Black Friday mention and best price we've seen for a Dell Inspiron touchscreen laptop. (It's also a current price low by $70.) It features an Intel Haswell Celeron ULT 2955U 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 11.6" 1366x768 LED-backlit touchscreen LCD, 2GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth, media card reader, USB 3.0, HDMI port, 3-cell battery, and Windows 8.
Best Buy offers the 2.8-lb. Acer Aspire C720-2802 Intel Celeron 1.4GHz 11.6" Chromebook for $199 with free shipping. That's $35 under the lowest total price we could find for a similar model with a weaker CPU and tied as the best price we've seen for a new Acer C7 Chromebook with an SSD. It features an Intel Haswell Celeron ULT 2955U 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 11.6" 1366x768 LED-backlit LCD, 2GB RAM, 16GB SSD, 802.11n wireless, webcam, and Google Chrome OS. No optical drive is included.
