Cheap Laptops for the Masses

A $398 laptop. Nothing illustrates my confusion with Wal-Mart better then that sentence. I'm vaguely in the market for a new laptop. I really want one, but can't seriously justify the price of one. Its just not a necessity. But a price like this brings it closer to a impulse buy. Much closer.
They're not particularly impressive machines, but on the other hand I'm not planning on editing video on it. A little surfing and a word processor would make me happy.
It's prices like this that bring people into the store. Say what you will about Wal-Mart's practices, but in the end the wallet usually wins out.
