If you're got an ageing computer at home needs to be replaced, Canada Computers has a pretty decent deal on a Intel Core i7 laptop that you might want to take a look at. Right now, they've got the Acer Aspire 17.3" HD Laptop with Intel Core i7-2630QM, 4GB RAM, 2 x 500GB HD, Blu-Ray Combo Drive and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit for $699.99.
A computer with these specs should be able to handle anything most users will throw at it. Picture and video editing, word processing, web surfing and medium to heavy multi-tasking won't be a problem although those looking for a gaming notebook might need to look elsewhere. Even without a discreet graphics card, it's still a good price for a laptop with second generation Intel Core i7 processor and Blu-Ray combo drive.
While it's listed as a laptop, we wouldn't necessarily enjoy carrying it around. The 17.3" screen and 7 pound frame might make it difficult to commute with, but we would definitely look into it as a desktop replacement for the home.
Shipping to anywhere in Canada starts at $14.99.
