Is this a good deal for a budget laptop? My wife needs one for the house so she can work from home. So nothing more than MS Office, Internet Explorer + Citrix client.

$409 for a HP Pavilion G60-549DX 15.6"
Amd turion 2Ghz
4Gb ddr2
8200M graphics
250 GB

that doesn't look too bad for a $400 notebook as long as you stick to office work/internet browsing. Why don't you get her a desktop though if its just staying on a desk?

Because we don't have a desk. I also figure I already own a good desktop, having the laptop would add to the list of capabilities.

I thought it was a good deal, but I'm debating whether or not to wait for a Black-friday deal.

I would wait. That's an okay deal but not a smokin' deal.

Black Friday is just around the corner, I'd stick it out.

Too bad the 10" is a bit too wee. The Timeline looks nice, a bit high for my budget though.
