I'm writing today's post on a laptop running Zorin OS, a Linux variant that looks and operates a lot like Windows 7. That has nothing to do with today's deals--just thought I'd mention it. It's pretty cool.
In the market for a Roku box? Antivirus software? How about a dirt-cheap home theater receiver? I've got you covered, and then some. That's right: it's a multideal Monday!
1. Today only, Woot offshoot Moofi has the Roku XD-HR streaming media player for $59.99, plus $5 for shipping. This is the flagship model of the previous generation of Roku boxes; it originally sold for $129.99. It's a bit bigger than the Roku 2 line, but it features all the best goodies: 1080p output, dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, and support for all Roku channels.
On the other hand, Roku itself is offering the Roku 2 XD for $69.99 shipped, $10 off the regular price. This deal was actually supposed to end yesterday, March 11, but as of right now you can still get it. It adds Bluetooth and a memory slot to the feature mix.
2. Also today only, and while supplies last (which typically isn't long), Cowboom has the Fitbit Classic activity and sleep tracker for $59.99, plus $5 for shipping. This crazy-popular gadget, which records and analyzes both your daily activities and sleep quality, lists for $99.99.
3. Are you currently using AVG Anti-Virus Free to keep your PC free of malware? Today only, Giveaway Crew has AVG Anti-Virus 2012 (1-user license) For $2.95. In other words, for a mere three bucks, you can step up from free to pro. Regular price: $39.95.
4. In case you missed it last time out, Ice Monkey has a limited supply of the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch for $74.99 shipped. That's a crazy-good deal for a top-rated e-reader with a touch-screen. Update: Neglected to mention this is a refurbished unit, but it still comes with a one-year Barnes & Noble warranty.
Update No. 2: A rep from Ice Monkey informs me that the Simple Touch is now down to $69.99!
5. Rounding out this limited-time/today-only bonanza, Woot has the Denon AVR-1312 5.1 channel A/V receiver for $159.99, plus $5 for shipping. That's around $100 less than you'll find it most other places. Highlights include 110 watts per channel, four HDMI ports, support for 3D signals, and a graphical user interface (overlaid on HDMI sources). Awesome.
Oh, one last thing. Before you buy any of these items, know this: Michigan State won the Big Ten! They're a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tourney! Woo! Wooooooo! Go Green! Go White!
