I have a good buddy who is looking for a new laptop. Will be used around the house and for business, no gaming, no GOBI card required. Any good deals out right now?

And thanks as always.

That's a pretty good deal, with the Sandy Bridge proc and all. I went with a new Dell 15r for my brother, for the same usage. I stay away from Toshiba given the immense amount of issues I've personally seen with Toshiba laptops. The Dell feels cheap, but everything feels cheap next to my MBP now.
