So you don't understand computer specs?

I'm not going to bother to explain what you are missing while you rush to prove yourself right.

You're wrong.

It's the same model (N585), it has 2 GB more RAM, a different camera, and a different OS. It is otherwise the same, and it is $330.

$330 is the cheapest N series laptop on there- I looked in the outlet, checked N series and sorted by price. I did this multiple times today and $330 was the cheapest each time. The deal you originally posted was good but it sold out or the price fluctuated quickly.

There were three N585 with similar specs for $220 when I posted a few hours ago ... but they sure move fast!

Jeez.

For the love of....

I just checked and there are still some for $220.00. Would some please explain to me why every time I try to post a good deal in this forum the crazies all show up. I just clipped this from the website.

Calm down. I'm not denying that the deal existed. I simply posted my experience. I don't doubt that there were price fluctuations and there was varying stock throughout the day.

By posting incorrect information you are doing other posters an injustice. I always wonder how many would say, "$220? I can afford that.", but not look if it was another $110 more.

There's no calming down needed. It's frustration at the insistence by you that there were none at $220 that caused the post.

If you can't do a proper search then don't post misinformation. It's simple.

The information I posted was correct at the time I posted it. Other posters came up with different information at later times. I don't see the issue here.
