Think about this for a minute: you can get your hands on a dual-core 15.6 inch laptop with “streamlined design, Altec-Lansing speakers and SRS Surround Sound, borderless touchpad and chiclet-like keyboard, HDMI, Webcam & card reader” for $384. Brand new and shipped. That’s not even a month’s rent. That’s probably how much you spend on overpriced lattes in six weeks! See, the Pavilion g6 line of portables are HPs budget-minded offerings and on today’s deal, all of them are getting a $100 off plus a $15 to $50 additional coupon, depending on configuration. So while the g6t with the dual-core processor just mentioned does fall from $499 to $384 (after a $115 total rebate) the g6s line with the newer Sandy Bridge Core i3 processor starts at $569 after a $130 price slash.
