Walmart offers $200 Black Friday notebook deal

Walmart says it will be offering a 15.6-inch notebook for under $200 in its post-Thanksgiving & Black Friday& sale. The eMachines eME528-2325 includes a 15.6-inch screen, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard disk drive, an HDMI output, and a DVD drive, according to the reseller.

Walmart’s Black Friday laptop is one of the best mobile computing deals we can recall seeing — at least for those who value a device’s power more highly than ultimate compactness. Of course, it also ships with a 64-bit edition of Windows 7 Home Premium, and is not available with Linux. However, at the $200 price, the “Windows tax” becomes irrelevant for those who don’t mind wiping the hard drive and starting fresh with a Linux distro.
