Should I buy this laptop without it being on sale?
I'm looking to purchase a laptop from Best Buy. It's price is $999.99. My dilemma is whether or not to buy it without it being on sale, or if I should even be considering this model at all. Best buy has new sales every week, and if I buy it now without it being on sale, they will give me the discount at a later time if it does go on sale within 2 weeks of my purchase. However it may not go on sale within that time period. I am also wondering if $999.99 for this laptop is already a deal.

I know it doesn't have great graphics but what level gaming do you think it could do?
Thanks. I would like at least 250, preferably 320 Hard Drive Speed/Capacity, 4gb ram and Discrete Video Memory but yeah, I don't want to pay way too much just for that stuff. Do you know of anything with those features for under $1000? I may have to consider your recommendation though...it seems to get quite a lot for $650
