It's a blog.
I’m looking to replace a laptop at home, and I know a few other people in the market as well, so I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled. Some of the specs are really pretty amazing. For under $750 you can get a laptop with a powerful dual-core processor, 6-8 GB of RAM, and a huge [...]
This caught my eye while going through the Costco circular.
