Hi everyone, Acer on eBay here for a little while in case anyone has questions.

@acerebay: I just bought my second Acer laptop not even a whole week ago! Had my first one for over 2 years now.

My current laptop is fairly similar to these - it's a two-year-old Gateway NV53A. Paid ~$500 for it and have had relatively few issues. Not for gaming, but it runs the programs I need.

What type of display is on the Gateway 17.3" Core i5-2430M 2.4GHz Notebook | NV77H20u?

The link doesn't show the 239.99 notebooks, the cheapest one I see is 279.99. Am I looking in the wrong spot or is the deal done?

@blakebrinkley: It was on there 20 minutes ago when I checked; its not on there now. Must have sold out.

Anyone know if SquareTrade will provide an extended warranty on these?

@bonkernrh: We added a couple of the $199 Netbooks to the page (also in the Netbooks section). These just moved, and should show up within the hour.

@jmbunkin: These items all include a 90 day warranty, and are eligible for SquareTrade coverage. Each listing has details on SquareTrade pricing and coverage term.

Nothing like the good old bait and switch... If you go to the site the laptops they show pictures of are 369, Only thing close to the price they list is a NETBOOK... frankly I expect better from Woot, this borders on criminal.

Either this was bait-n-switch or they just ran out.

@thomas998: You're wrong about the starting price of the laptops. As of this minute, there are laptops for $279.99. You must have been too late to view the really low priced ones. Criminal?

@hoosiercub: Could be both "running out" and "bait and switch." They probably were using the $239 laptop as a loss leader just to get people to look, and only made a few available. They knew those cheap laptops would be gone in short order.

More deceptive than criminal. It still leaves a bad taste in the mouth, though.

@hoosiercub: We did run out (and indicate that very early in the thread). Just got a few more in. Unit is relisted in the other section (same link) and price is updated to $239.

I see a couple $199 netbooks as well as the $239 15.6" laptop right now. Cool down with the "criminal" accusations; they just ran out for a little while, geez.
