Depends on if you like Windows 8. The specs are ok, but you have to remember it's not a regular i5. This is a i5 M, so it's going to be slower. The trade-off is supposed to be better battery life, but it didn't seem that great when looking at the reviews on Amazon. It does have a 3rd gen i5 so it's got the HD 4000 graphics. Would seem like a decent deal at ~$400 if it can what you need it to do.

*edit*
Plus it's 5.6 pounds! Might be annoying for someone swapping from a Macbook Air.


Thanks, i didn't know it was a "slower" i5. I looked at steam last night and was surprised at how many steam games support OS X that I have. I may keep what I have for now..thanks!!

Agreed. It seems like MSRP will probably be around $30 sometime soon. But Borderlands 2 is definitely worth more than $32 in my opinion. Such a great game.

Just a heads up for anyone who bought a uDraw yesterday: There is one online achievement where you have to upload a picture to the uDraw website. The server is still up as of last night but you might want to knock that one out sooner rather than later.

That's a good deal on a sound bar.


it's been $50 more times than i can count. i would not recommend it. did some research on it and optical only really hurts it. plenty of discussion on slick deals bashing it

Not a bad price on BL2, but I just got NiNoKuni so I'll be busy with that for awhile. Plus I'd rather hold out for GOTY.

If one doesn't care about the optical out only seems like its alright for a sound bar on a budget.

optical in, not out.. i just don't get it though. it's not a surround bar, it only does left and right stereo). so why have optical that does 5.1 when it should really have simply red and white, what most tvs have?!

I have a strange request, but hopefully someone here can help. I'm communicating with Best Buy about an issue I had when buying Rage on 12/22/2012. The clerk who rang me up took my $10 credit, even though it couldn't be used. The game was on sale that day for $9.99, and even shows in the old thread, but Best Buy is claiming that it was never on sale for that price.

Does anybody have the e-mail from that day? My e-mail was hacked from that Brazilian Yahoo hacker a few weeks ago, so I lost that e-mail. I'd like to get that $10 certificate back.

My post on the Best Buy forums is here.

I have the emails from that range but RAGE is not listed in the emails (I checked that whole week). I believe it was one of the deals, but not in the actual email.

How much evidence is enough? Aforesaid should suffice. However Best Buys record of customer service or lack thereof is suspect.

If you ended up buying the game and used your reward zone they can get a hold of the receipt. If some else here bought it they can send you a screenshot of their reward zone.

Best Buy's response was that you bought the game at 19.99 minus 10 bucks, so either you bought the game at 9.99 and didn't use the cert or the mod is an idiot.

Wow! Thanks so much. I already have the above receipt from my own reward zone account, which is what they're saying is proof that the $10 off has already been applied, and why the game is $9.99. Seriously, they're claiming the $9.99 price did not happen.

Was the cert actually used on the purchase? Cause otherwise it should still be available on myrewardzone.com unless it expired. If that isn't the case, and for some reason the game was rang up at $19.99 in store and you got screwed... well yeah, I think all the little bit of evidence just posted should help but I would just keep insisting and mention that it was a DOTD. It is possible they are only looking at their weekly sales in arguing with you.

I see the problem is that they don't put the fricking reward points on the receipt....

Rage was one of those "Today only" deals, it wasn't exactly posted on the "Deal of the Day" page. Not sure if Best Buy views them differently.

getting it for the ball and trading in the game somewhere isnt a bad idea as nba balls cost over twice as much as this 19.99 bundle does

Note that the basketball included with NBA BAller Beats is your normal "replica" NBA ball, not the "official" leather NBA ball. To a regular non-athlete they function pretty much the same, but the official ball is 2x-3x more expensive. $20 is still cheaper than the normal price (~$30) for a replica ball, so good deal even if you want just the basketball.

I think this game is good. I just watch some youtube videos of people playing on the different difficulty levels. The videos has changes my mind about the game. I will go get it to tomorrow. As you go to harder levels it will force you to keep your head up to watch the screen and not your head down at the ball.

This is coming from playing basketball for 20 years. This game can help with your dribbling skills a lot.
