This weekend Walmart offers a $288 15.6-inch Compaq Laptop in early Black Friday electronics sales event.
Walmart just announced hot electronics deals for their frist early Black Friday sales event starting Saturday 8am in Walmart stores. Like last year Walmart is offering again a laptop under $300. The 15.6-inch Compaq CQ6-109WM is going to be on sale on Nov. 6 for $288.
The HP Compaq is featuring up-to-date design that does not give it away that it is a budget laptop. The HP Compaq CQ6-109WM runs on a Intel Celeron 900 2.2Ghz CPU. Features include 15.6-inch LED display, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, Wi-fi 802.11n, Intel 4500M Graphics chip, SuperMulti double-layer DVD burner and 6-cell battery. Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition comes with the Compaq CQ6-109WM.
Best Buy offers a similar Compaq laptop with the CQ62-215DX based on AMD CPU and Graphics. Best Buy is currently selling that one for $349.99.
Walmart offered this Compaq Laptop already back in July for $298. Now they cut the price by another $10.
The Intel Celeron 900 and the Intel GPU are the biggest issue with the Walmart bargain Laptop. This CPU has already powered the bargain laptops a year ago. The price/performance curve is very flat in the low-end right now. You get some updated components with the Compaq CQ6-109WM like LED LCD display and Wireless-N. $288 is though a tempting price and if you do not need to play 3D games, edit videos and open 5 browser windows while you surf the Compaq CQ6-109WM will do.
