Everyone has a price. And so does every laptop. We're still looking for this one's.
If there's one thing we've learned in nine-plus years of hustling discount widgets, it's that "good or bad?" is the wrong question to ask about a product. The question is, is the price right? A gizmo that stinks like feces at $100 might shine like gold at $20.
So we're hoping our latest price drop puts the shine on this HP 17.3" Touchsmart laptop. Aside from the irrational fear and loathing that Windows 8 inspires in the hearts of men, it can do a lot for a laptop at this price. That 1920x1080 touchscreen, 8GB DDR3 memory, the 1TB hard drive, four USB ports including one USB 3.0: these are burly specs. This laptop totally shreds, people! Come on!
But the market's truths are pitiless and not subject to appeal. And the market says we've still got a pile of these laptops on our hands. So the experiment continues: what's the magic price that sends these flying off of our shelves and into your hands?
