The Lenovo Outlet is offering the refurbished IdeaPad U350 13-inch laptop for $482, which is $147 less than the price of a new model. This configuration has a 1.3GHz Intel Pentium SU2700 ULV processor, a 13-inch LED-backlit display, 3GB of memory, a 250GB hard drive, and Windows Vista Home Premium. In our review of a slightly different configuration, we noted the laptop's excellent keyboard and solid performance.

Dell Home has the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 netbook for $207 including shipping, $40 under retail price. This netbook has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, a glossy 9-inch LED-backlit display, 1GB of memory, and a 4GB solid-state drive. Dell's superlow price includes Ubuntu Linux preinstalled; you'll need to move up to the Mini 10 or look elsewhere if you want a netbook with Windows XP. We liked the keyboard and the crisp display in our review of the Windows XP model.

We liked the D90's image quality, physical design, and ease of use enough to give it a PC World Rating of 88 (Very Good), which put this camera at the very top of our current DSLR chart.
