For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Acer eBay Outlet Store has the refurbished Acer Aspire V5-571P-6815 15.6-inch touch-screen laptop for $469.99 shipped. Regular price on this configuration new: $849.99.
I’ll quickly run down the key specs before discussing the truly important consideration here: Windows 8 and the touch screen. The Aspire features a 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 6GB of RAM, a 750GB hard drive, and a DVD burner. It has three USB ports, one of which is USB 3.0-compatible.
