Walmart outs $300 notebook

Walmart on Thursday announced it will offer a notebook for less than $300 on Sunday, with the 15.6-inch Compaq Presario CQ60-419WM. Part of Walmart's early back to school sale, the notebook is powered by a 2.1GHz AMD Sempron processor and otherwise offers 3GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive preloaded with Windows Vista and a DVD burner. There is Wi-Fi capability, and an NVIDIA GeForce 8200M chipset providers graphics processing. A six-cell battery is standard fare with the CQ60.

At the same time, Walmart has other portable PC news, including that it will drop the price of its 15.6-inch Acer AS5810-4657 Timeline by $50, with the new $548 price effective on July 26th. It is powered by a 1.3GHz ultra low voltage Core 2 Solo and also has 3GB of RAM, while its 320GB hard drive contains Windows Vista Home Premium, with buyers eligible for a free Windows 7 upgrade. Battery life is rated at eight hours.

Also, Walmart will begin offering HP's 10.1-inch Mini 110-131NR netbook early in August. Mid-August will see the addition of a 17-inch Toshiba L355-18.3 with 3GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive along with an unnamed Dell notebook with 4GB of RAM and 500GB of storage. Prices for this threesome are yet to be announced.
