View Full Version : Finding a large screen laptop for less
Is there a good website or way to find the largest screen size laptop at the lowest price?
I wasn't really looking for a recommendation (but if you have one feel free to throw it out there). I'm looking for a way to find a big screen size, like an 18.4" or bigger if they make them, and make sure I'm getting it for as cheap as possible.
Mods - if this is more suited to another forum, so be it.

Visit Newegg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2034940032%20103982607&name=18.4%22), TigerDirect (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Category/guidedSearch.asp?CatId=17&sel=Detail;98_266_10303_13593), Dell (http://www.dell.com) and Lenovo (http://www.lenovo.com/us/en/).
The largest screen I found in a cursory search was 18.4".
Bigger doesn't mean cheaper here. The alleged craze in netbooks is actually dropping screen size. I expect large screen laptops to be phased out.

18.4" + gets you into a very restricted set of manufs as 99.99% of notebooks are for 17" and below so getting a "deal" in this size is much more chancy in this size range as the number of units are limited.
Re 17.3 inch units Staples and Best Buy have decent "after rebate " weekly deals about once a month on various 17.3" units. The rest of the time it's "meh".
Thanks! I think I'm going to go 17.3"
The one I'm looking at now is this one (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Acer-17.3-320-GB-AS7736Z-4088/13352322?sourceid=1500000000000003142050&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=13352322) from Walmart of all places.
