$400 Laptop Sparks Frenzy at Wal-Mart
Cheap Apple iBooks aren't the only laptops that can get consumers in a buying frenzy it seems. On Friday at a Wal-Mart store in Orlando, Florida, customers pushed and climbed over each other to get their hands on a $400 HP notebook, with one man fighting a security guard.
One person described the scene as "crazy" according to reports, and another said the laptops were being thrown into the air. A similar scene broke out at a Wal-Mart in Washington, where police were called to help control a crowd that dislodged counters and displays to get their hands on the cheap laptop.
