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”.

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.
