The rumored Black Friday ad for Staples has leaked out and on the front cover are several Black Friday notebook deals; the cheapest of which is an un-named HP notebook that is just $299 after a $50 Staples Easy Rebate.
As we mentioned, the exact model was not leaked, but the deal is more than likely for an HP G60 model notebook. This particular model, the G60, will be the cheap laptop at many stores on Black Friday. Expect each store to have a slightly different model, indicated by change in the numbers following G60, and different hardware. For example, the rumored $299 HP notebook will look similar to the HP G60-530US currently available at Staples.com; but it will have a cheaper processor and smaller hard drive.
Like most of the $300 HP and Acer computers that have already been offered as part of Pre-Black Friday sales, expect a machine like this to handle web browsing, document editing, organizing your photos and other basic home tasks.
