If you’re looking to buy a cheap (but good-quality) laptop here’s a deal for you. Fujitsu USA has a refurbished 6.5-lb. laptop with an Intel Core 2 Duo (1.5Ghz) processor, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB SATA hard drive, DVD burner, and a 15.4" super-bright screen, for $599 with free shipping. Made in China but pretty solid quality. Use coupon code FCSRFBCLS to receive $100 off instantly, making the final cost $499.
(Disclaimer: This link came in an e-mail newsletter I received. I do not receive any "commission" if you order the laptop. I’m not liable for your purchase.)
Coupon terms: Receive $100 Off any LifeBook Notebook or Tablet PC purchased in the Fujitsu outlet store. To redeem $100 Off, use coupon code FCSRFBCLS. Applicable to U.S. end user purchases through the outlet store at www.shopfujitsu.com. Free Standard Shipping.
(Going forward I’ll post shopping deals that may be helpful to some job seekers. In an economy like this everyone can use a good deal or two.)
