Walmart. Black Friday. $198 15″ laptop. Better get there early…

On Black Friday (November 26) Walmart will be opening it’s doors at 5am, and on the list of many low-priced things early birds can pick up that day (while supplies last of course) is a 15″ eMachines laptop for $198. Yep, a more or less fully functional laptop for under $200.

The somewhat mystery machine on the front page of the Walmart Black Friday ad below, only says that it features a 2.2Ghz Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM, a 15.6″ “HD” screen, 250GB hard drive, a read/write CD/DVD drive, Windows 7 Home Premium and is “wireless enabled”.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Frankly, this think is probably a brick, but for under $200 you can’t really even buy a netbook usually, never mind a full laptop. This could be the perfect gift for someone that would like a laptop for around the house or for the kids. What do you think, would you throw down $200 (plus tax of course) for this laptop? Will you be standing in line at 4:59am next Friday? Please let us know in the comments.
