Special Offers – Week of December 29th

December 29, 2009

Good afternoon all, hopefully Christmas was as kind to you as possible, but if it wasn’t there’s always some consolation to be had from the fact that it’s all over now. Anyway, before we get to the “happy new year” potion of the post (that’ll be at the end) we always do a post at the start of the week to detail some of our special offers.

This week, we have a solid notebook, a Wireless N router and a 1TB media player on sale. We’ll roll with the notebook first.

Acer Aspire 7730G-664G100MN:

Acer’s Aspire 7730G-664G100MN may have a model name that reads like a license plate, but aside from making its name a little hard to keep in your head that shouldn’t discourage you.

We’ll get down to brass tacks as quickly as possible. The Aspire boasts a 17” display with a resolution of 1440 x 900, an Intel Core 2 Duo processor clocked at 2.2GHz and 4GB of memory. Moreover, it boasts 1TB of internal storage, though not on one drive. Instead, it’s spread across two 500GB drives, which means you’re at lower risk of both failing. It might seem like a small thing, but it can be a godsend if you end up in a position to need it. It’s also got a GeForce 9600M-GT.

The machine does come with Windows Vista Home Premium, which means you’d be best off purchasing an upgrade copy of Windows 7 to set up on the machine when you get it, if Windows Vista is a deal-breaker.

The Acer Aspire weighs in at €695, which isn’t a bad old deal at all.

Draft N Finally Standardised

September 14, 2009

Many of us have already been using “Draft N” routers to network our “Draft N” wireless devices for years, but it seems that this week we get to drop the “draft” and just use “Wireless N” as the whole thing gets approved officially.

While it’s been a long time coming, it’s nice to see that 802.11n is finally a real wireless standard, rather than the strange hovering-in-limbo act it’s been pulling for the last few years. According to RealTechNews, the whole business only took seven years, which makes us feel older than we really are, given that it’s easy to remember a time when 802.11n seemed like a bit of a pipe dream.

Special Offers – Week of Monday August 24th

August 24, 2009

Good afternoon all, hope Monday finds you well. If nothing else, I suppose you can always keep in mind that at least we’re 20% of the way through the week by the end of Monday afternoon. Anyway, most of you will be familiar with this already, but on a Monday afternoon we post the special offers we’re running that we think you guys might be interested in over the coming week.

Incidentally, we’ve removed the delivery charge to our Pickup Point for the foreseeable future, so these prices are the amount you can expect to pay if you don’t mind taking a drive up to the PUP and grabbing it yourself :)

Anyway, enough mindless prattle, this week we have on offer an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, a Lynksys Wireless-N router and a Western Digital Caviar 1TB hard drive.

Intel Core 2 Duo E7400, 2.8GHz:

As ever, when it comes to processors it’s hard to know what to say. This Core 2 Duo is marked down by 17%, brining the price down to €99. For your €99 you’ll net 2.8GHz

I know the box for a processor doesn’t do it too much justice, but it’s always nce to have an image to go alongside the product name :) I guess the salient point here is that it’s socket LGA775 and it’s got a 3MB L2 cache.
