Second Sub-$400 HP Laptop

While Wal-Mart is said to expect major publicity for its $398 laptop sale, an equally low-cost deal is available through HP itself, according to Notebooks.com. The normally $699 Compaq Presario V3000Z receives a combination discount and rebate that lowers its price to $399, matching the Wal-Mart model in price despite a more recent design. The 14-inch V3000Z ships with a 1.8GHz Sempron processor that outperforms the less efficient 2GHz chip of the V5305, according to HP. Although other features are similar, Notebooks.com indicates that the online-only system is available for $359 for faculty and students who register with HP's academic discount program. The V3000Z is already shipping.
