Multiple Monday: A Dell laptop, a 2TB hard drive, and a Blu-ray HTIB
I couldn't decide on just one deal today, so I bring you three. They're all amazing, but you won't believe the price on the Blu-ray home theater system.
Ever have one of those days when you just couldn't make up your mind? You know: chocolate or vanilla? "Megamind" or "Despicable Me"? iPad 2 from Verizon or iPad 2 from AT&T? (Don't tell Mrs. Cheapskate about that last one.)
This morning, I couldn't make up my mind which deal to post--so I'm posting the three top candidates. (Also, like you, I hate it when stuff sells out right away, so this affords a little insurance.)
First up, Best Buy has the Dell Inspiron IN5030-2450B3D 15.6-inch laptop for $399.99 shipped (plus sales tax).
It's a very nicely equipped system, with a dual-core Pentium processor, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and all the other standard accoutrements. If you're looking to get ahead on your dads-and-grads shopping, this might be just the ticket.
Next, Amazon has a Hitachi 2TB 3.5-inch internal SATA hard drive for $69.99 shipped. Go ahead, collect your jaw from the floor, I'll wait. This "green" drive promises lower power utilization and less heat than other drives, and comes with a three-year warranty. Very tempted to trick out my media-center PC with one of these bad-boys. Two terabytes!
Finally, Cowboom has a refurbished Philips HTS3051B Blu-ray home-theater-in-a-box system for $99.99, plus sales tax and $5 for shipping. Given that a lot of Blu-ray players sell for that much (or more) all alone, this is an insanely good deal.
The only bummer: although the player supports BD-Live, it doesn't do Netflix streaming. Even so, the sellout risk is huge, so grab this while you can.
You can see why I had trouble choosing just one of these deals: they're all smoking! And that begs the question: which one will you choose? (Bonus points for anyone who's jumping on all three.)
