The deal was announced this morning, and while no specific model was given Best Buy did confirm that the $250 Acer notebook would have, an Intel Celeron 900 processor, 2GB memory and a 160GB hard drive,” and ship with Windows 7.
Like most of the Black Friday notebook deals that we have already seen this computer will be able to meet the needs of most users who want to use social networking sites, edit documents and other basic computing tasks.
Whatever the exact model is; don’t expect to find it listed elsewhere online for price comparison purposes as this specific model will be exclusive to Best Buy. One thing to consider when comparing this deal to the other notebook deals we have already seen is that it offers 1 GB less RAM and a smaller hard drive.
The deal will be available in stores and online at BestBuy.com starting November 11.
update: We just heard from Best Buy that the specific model number for this deal is the Acer Extensa EX5230E-2177.
