Back-to-school computer specials
Walmart bundle: If your college student needs a little of everything, this Walmart bundle is not a bad option. For as little as $348, the bundle includes a laptop, 4 GB USB Flash Drive, a laptop case and a wireless printer. There are 29 laptops to choose from, but according to dealnews.com, retail outlets like Walmart and Best Buy generally has the best savings on Acer, Toshiba and HP models. Online, the HP G62-219WM Laptop PC bundled with carrying case and flash drive is $448.
Apple: Apple has a back-to-school promotion in which you get a free iPod touch with the purchase of any Mac. That’s a $199 savings. Of course, it’s a deal only if you need or want an 8GB iPod touch. You must apply for education pricing to get this deal, valid through Sept. 7. Click here for details.
Best Buy: With the purchase of a 13.3-inch Apple MacBook from Best Buy, you get a $75 gift card. Of course, the MC515LL/A is pretty pricey at $999 and may be a bit too much for a college student. Best Buy has a more mainstream Dell Inspiron laptop — 15.6-inch display, 2 GB Memory, 250 GB Hard Drive — for $399.99.
For the best online computer deals, look for HP, Lenovo (formerly IBM), and Dell, said dealnews.com editor in chief, Dan de Grandpre.
