Buy Laptop from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

The Walmart Black Friday Laptop bargain deal is on sale today in stores.

Today you have the choice between two hot Black Friday Laptop Deals. Best Buy still offers the $279.99 eMachines eME442-V133 today also online on BestBuy.com. Best Buy must have tons of these laptops in stock since they already started selling it yesterday. Walmart is offering today in their Black Friday Electronics weekend sale the Compaq Compaq CQ6-109W. Which of these bargain laptops is the better choice? Read on to find out.

The features of the 15.6-inch Gateway eMachines eME442-V133 laptop available on Best Buy include AMD V140 2.3Ghz CPU, ATI Radeon HD 4250 GPU, LCD display with 1,366x728px resolution, 2GB DDR3 RAM (expandable to 4GB), DVD writer drive with double layer support, 250GB HDD, 2-in-1 card reader,  Wi-Fi 802.11n, 4-cell battery and Windows 7 Home Premium.

The HP Compaq CQ6-109WM available on Walmart runs on an 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.

The major difference between the Walmart Laptop and the Best Buy offer is the AMD CPU and GPU. The Walmart Compaq Laptop runs on the Intel Celeron 900 CPU at 2.2Ghz and Intel 4500M graphics. The AMD V140 CPU is a bit higher rated in performance, but the big difference is the ATI HD 4250. It outperforms the Intel GPU by far and allows you to play low-res and older 3D games. It can also decode HD Videos under reasonable system load. If you want to do bit of 3D gaming and HD video watching the eMachines eME442-V133 is the better choice. 3D games and HD video are problematic on the Walmart laptop.

The Walmart Laptop has a bigger battery with 6-cells, versus the 4-cells found in the early Best Buy Black Friday laptop. The 6-cell should give you about 1 hour more battery life. The 4-cell might get you a max. of 2 hours without a power cord. If portability is important the Walmart Laptop is preferable.

Another difference is the screen. The $288 Walmart Laptop has an LED LCD display, whereas the Best Buy laptop uses normal LCD display. The brightness and image quality should be better on the Walmart laptop.

From a design standpoint both laptops sport an up to date finish. The Walmart Laptop looks to our eyes a bit more attractive.

Final recommendation:
The advantages of the $279.99 Best Buy Laptop in performance and the lower price make it the better deal in our opinion. The $288 Walmart has its merits though, with longer battery life and better screen. More details of the Best Buy Laptop can be found on the Best Buy site.
