You have to spend $2500 in a year and they send you a special card if you're Silver. I just became a silver member after we bought a new fridge...

Sucks that's it's only 1 game per deal. Has anyone in the past found a way to go around that?

Well it does not look like we will be getting an early release of the sales. Time for bed. Good luck everyone. I want that sandwich maker actually.

I was eyeballing that cheap pink $250 laptop for my 6 year old niece. I figure its time to start teaching her how to use a computer on her oen. It looks good for that price, other than the small HD (really? couldn't do at least 500 gigs?) and the big problem being no optical drive!

Can you hook it up to an external optical drive or something? An external HD isn't a problem but im not sure if those are any good. Are there any decent cheap ones i could use? Anyway just wondering if anyone thinks it would be a good 'my first computer' for a little kid

BTW thanks for the link to the blog post on the BF vita deals.. however i dont see the AC vita on their website. Im guesssing that just means they wont do it? I couldn't care less about the COD one they listed

an external optical drive should work just fine

^^ I'm not sure whether or not it would be a good first laptop for a kid BUT

I rarely if ever use my optical drive on my MBP. Unless you're ripping cds then I don't see the need. A external would do.

Most of the stuff a little kid will use might not need an optical drive. The only drawback I think is her parents cannot play a movie on it without some type of usb external drive. Otherwise, most things can be downloaded and installed without a optical drive. It is pretty cheap in case something gets dropped or spilled on.

ya thats my concern. She actually DOES watch movies a lot on her mom's laptop. A lot is netflix, but some is DVD's and stuff like that. It would be nice to be able to use one. I did a quick search and it looks like you can get one for like 30-40 bucks or so. The question is do those actually work half decent? Seems odd to have one on a USB slot. Anyone used one before? Are they decent?

The no drive is the only real drawback. She can always get an external HD for more space if needed. Interesting point on most stuff being digital these days. Kinda makes the small 350 gig HD seem even more cruddy

Still for $250 may not be a bad 'my first computer' It appears to be a dual core processor which isn't too shabby. Unfortuantly i know nothing about the GFX card. Some integrated thing but i see no real info on it

You can just place another separate order.

I remember getting in on last year's early BF online sale. It was nice to order everything before the rest of the public but a real drawback was how a lot of our orders were not fulfilled until AFTER Black Friday. People were getting their orders in December!

The nice thing is that we all get free expedited shipping now which helps but the key is whether the BB online fulfillment department is properly staffed. It took forever for orders to change to shipping status....

I'm considering that laptop for my girlfriend -- all she does with her computer is surf the web, do school work (word processing) and watch some videos. She uses her iPad streaming most content. So, I think it looks great for that.

The wife has this pink asus laptop, the only concern she has with it is the touchpad.

It is all a flat surface so it confuses left and right click, a little annoying but serviceable. Otherwise a good laptop , fast for everyday needs. Hope that helps!

Does it handle movies and stuff well? I was planning on putting My little Pony on it for her, probalby high rez versions. Im assuming it can handle that ok, but im not too sure since theres no gfx card specs listed.

Also thought id give her a few games, like Plants VZ Zombies, maybe Torchlight. Stuff like that

So we can just put in another order then? Nice. Hopefully now I can just get everything I want instead of having to just go in with the crowds.

Damnit! I was really hoping they were going to have the 3DS as a part of this deal since it was the main thing I wanted. Guess I'll have to try Gamestop since I think they'll be the lesser crazy on BF.

Think I'll probably stick with Dead Island and that's it...gotta try and save a little up for everyone else's gifts. Last year I spent wayyyy too much and some of them are still in my backlog, lol.


Always sunny seasons are pretty cheap so I plan on picking some up :D

Yes, it will stream just fine.

And like other have said - optic drives are dead. You will not miss it. It's all about the cloud storage, USB storage, Amazon Prime streaming, etc...
