I think the brand new price at most places is around $740 or so. This probably isn't that good of a deal, hence the reason I didn't put it in the deal forum. If you have LOADS of GameStop credit and are in the market for a laptop, you could do worse. They don't give the model name on the website, but after some searching I found an Asus Model that has matching specs and pictures. Interesting that GameStop has this. Anyway, all relevant information below. Found this by random. Wondering what you guys think.

That was kind of my reaction. I found it by pure accident on their site. Definitely odd.

You forgot the free pubic hairs in the keyboard and the suspicious smears on the screen.

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.
