Laptops from Apple, HP, Acer and Dell are as low as $250 at retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and Staples this holiday season.
More than 364 million personal computers will be sold this year. That means great savings are available at a number of retailers this holiday season.
A laptop is the perfect gift for a loved one, yourself, or a close friend – they are guaranteed to please, they provide a valuable service and with new models coming out once or twice a year from some manufacturers, most people could use an update.
