Seems like a hard sell on this one... I feel like the tech woot has better computer and for 50$ cheaper

Is Woot ok? Used to be flooded with amazing stuff daily. Now its kinda.. "meh".

I still click here daily, but not as excited as I once was.

Now this I really want but I just bought an Acer big boy. I LOVE VAIO. A 14" would be perfect for school dammit. Anyone know the MSRP on this baby? Is it a deal?

Ok I am seeing now you all say its not a good deal. Come on woot. You're slipping these days. The deals are so nondeals anymore. The people will catch on eventually that haven't already.

All woot deals have been lackluster since they sold out to Amazon Corp.

From what I can tell:

This has a 500gb "hybrid" hdd, so it supposed to be slightly faster, as opposed to the tech woot laptop 750gb.

This one has a slightly smaller screen, like 1" than tech woot.

This one has a built in webcam thats better than tech woot's.

This one has less RAM and a slower CPU (i3 vs i5) but the difference for email/facebook/internet may be minimal.

And tech woot is $50 cheaper.

This is a hot ticket! Can't keep the Sony Vaio on the shelf!

I thought that on one refresh it said 98% then went back to 100% available.

Here's a laptop with the same specs(different brand obviously) for $455 on the 'zon.

And the Lenovo isn't a refurb.

This is a really, really bad deal. You can get twice the computer for this price. The best thing it's got going for it is 4 gigs of RAM, but there's nothing you here you can't find on the shelf at your local Best Buy. Where's the real deal, woot?

They are all the same age. It's just the slow, medium, fast versions of the current windows cpu.

Yeah it's a Sony but maybe we'll see the bar move if the price drops to $299...

Ha!

For comparison, last fall I bought this on sale for $770...i7, 8GB RAM, 1TB hard drive...seems like a much better deal!

From the looks of it this sold for $699 or so at regular retail, but it isn't available from most sites anymore so I would assume it is an older, discontinued model that should probably be marked down quite a bit more seeing as it is also a refurb.

Here is a link to detailed product description.

Ok, people. I'm tired of not seeing any fun gifs.

Google has made it super easy to find them now.

1) Go to Google Images
2) Type in a search term
3) On the results page, click on Search tools in the bar below the search box.
4) On Any type, choose Animation.
5) Click on any a PG-13 image that you like.
6) Click on View Original Image.
7) Copy the URL from your browser's address bar and put in the middle of the IMG tags:

[ img ] url [ /img ]

but with no spaces.

[ img ] http://www.lolbrary.com/content/787/from-the-ministry-of-silly-walks-36787.gif [ /img ]







Your assignment: Find GIFS that start with the first letter from the manufacturer, item, or product. For this one, S, V, or U.

Mine above was Silly (S).

/Facepalm

Apple uses Intel CPUs now as well, and has for ages. And they still label them i3, i5, etc. They just mark them up 500% more because they put it their stupid logo and OS on it.

There is really very little "Ultra" about an i3 or a 720p screen.

Can anyone recommend a good tracking program for Woot offs - or an app that auto refreshes?
