Need sub $1K laptop with SSD by early AM 5/11/20
Just found out I’m working out of town, leaving next Monday AM. Went onto Amazon to grab a decent laptop for the trip, and nothing is available that can arrive here (BR) before I leave.

BestBuy has a $900 Asus Aspire with 500GB SSD that can ship to store for tomorrow. I don’t love the computer, but I’ve had decent luck with Asus in the past.

Anyone know of another computer source in/around BR (or with fast shipments to BR) that can get me a quad core laptop with SSD for under $1K?

I'm going to be no help to you but for our clients who want laptop quotes they've been very scarce in stock with our distributors.

all tech products related to working at home has been low/out of stock for the last few months.

it took me weeks to track down a reasonably priced mid-range ultrawide monitor.

Amazon shipping has been all over the place in BR during Covid too so I wouldn't trust that it will arrive on time.

Probably OPs best bet to just go buy the one he likes the best at Best Buy.

Check your options at Costco

Thanks for the insights, guys. It’s apparently a really bad time to be buying home computer equipment of any kind.

FWIW, I put the BestBuy $900 laptop in my cart on Thursday afternoon. When I checked just now, its price had jumped to $1100.

Thinking I’ll probably just end up getting something from Amazon shipped to my hotel. Not like I’m gonna miss much if it arrives a few days after me. I’ve got 2+ weeks onsite, so there will be plenty of time left for Netflix binging and TD.com shitposting.
