Want to save more? then get a refurbished item because they are cheap and a good as new. TigerDirect has this kind of deal and it’s the HP G60-249WM refurbished laptop. It’s powered by AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor, 3GB of RAM, 250GB HDD, and the not too shabby nVidia GeForce 8200M. It has 16-inch screen so it’s pretty good for a mini home theater with HDMI interface. The first price is $949.99, after $450 off turning the final price to $499.97 only! It’s better than buying a netbook with minimum specs.
