@Eyewerks--

Typically when we talk about a "bargain" or "doorbuster laptop," we're referring to the very cheapest builds. These laptops usually have dual-core CPUs that are several lifecycles behind, and they're definitely not going to have much RAM or storage. They're true doorbusters -- a $100 laptop is a great marketing gimmick, after all.

Thanks for reading!
