Holiday Shopping and The $348 Laptop

It used to be that holiday shopping began the day after Thanksgiving. Then, online shoppers started getting a jump on the season, doing their buying on turkey day. Now comes Wal-Mart, which is starting its super sales super early, a jumpstart other merchants are sure to follow.

To wit, tomorrow the mega-retailer will reveal what hot items it is putting on deep discounts on Friday. Cue TV B-roll of nutty people fighting in the aisles. You can see a peek at one of the offers, a $348 laptop (1 gb ram!) right here.

We can only hope everyone will have spent all their money by the time the holiday season really gets here and there will be plenty of parking spaces at the mall.
