But at office depot for 800$. There is a 400$ discount off the 1200$ price (I think its clearance but it could be a rebate). A friend at work was looking at getting it. So far as I can tell, it seems a decent enough deal if the savings are instant, but then again, I’m not that familiar with laptops (I stick to desktops).

Is that a good price/good laptop?

It’s a good laptop for the price although I wouldnt buy it if I would carry it around most of the time. No magnesium casing :frowning:

Are you talking about the outer casing, or an inner casing that mounts components? If it gets dropped, do you just break the shell, or do you break the computer?
