Best Buy 229 Notebook

Best Buy today revealed some of its 'doorcrasher' deals for Black Friday, including an unprecedented $229 promotion for the bundle of a notebook and a printer. The deal will see a Toshiba Satellite A135 with a 1.73GHz Celeron M, 512MB of memory, and an 80GB hard disk paired with a Canon PIXMA MP210 hybrid printer and scanner; the combination is nearly a $651 drop from the normal price for the two, the retailer says. No mention is made of how widespread the deal will be or how many of the bundles will be available, though the company is handing out tickets on the store's opening and is believed to be clearing out existing stock while also driving customers to the store.

The deal is one of the steepest discounts for any notebook to date, as previous bargains have often stopped at or near $300 without including accessories. Best Buy also intends a handful of less dramatic discounts such as a price drop on the Olympus FE280 8-megapixel camera from $200 to $130 and a $500 drop on a 47-inch, 1080p-native LG HDTV which will sell for $2,000.
