Amazon drops the price of this Lenovo 15.6" Ideapad from $499.99 to $449.99 with free shipping. This is one of the best pound-for-pound values for a laptop at the moment, so much so that I just bought one myself. It's well-equipped, priced right, well-reviewed and it carries no sales tax (except in KS, KY, ND, NY, and WA). It has an Intel Pentium dual-core processor, 4GB memory and a 250GB hard drive.
