The deals continue as some retailers find themselves with an abundance of inventory on certain products. This seems to be the case with the Lenovo IdeaPad that Best Buy sells for $299. The netbook will go on sale on Christmas Day [online only] for just $197 ! Now that is a deal. The sale will last ‘for a few days’ according to one source.
