This laptop week at Office Max

Office Max, the home of NO REBATES, has two laptops advertised in the spartan ad-wise Sunday paper.

first up the Acer Aspire AS5270-4171 for $600. This is while supplies last and may be special ordered at some of the stores. Check with your local stores for availability. It offers an Intel Pentium dual core T2310 processor, 2gb DDR2 memroy, 200gb hard drive, dvd burner, b/g wireless, built-in memory card reader, built-in webcam, 15.4" widescreen and the obligatory Vista Premium. Not bad for an all-around laptop! Check it out!

The second one is the Toshiba Satelite P205-S7476 for $1000. For that you get an Intel Centrino Duo Core 2 T5250, 2gb DDR2 memory, 200gb hard disk drive, 17" widescreen, HD-DVD ROM with dvd burner, built-in webcam, built-in fingerprint reader, a/g/n wireless, and Vista Home Premium. While supplies last. Some stores may require a special order (eg not available in-store). This is a nice bundle for the multimedia-inclined users as it offers a 17" widescreen and HD-DVD playback for those who have fallen into the trap of committing to BluRay vs HD-DVD before it got settled. Oh the silliness of HD-DVD vs BluRay, but that's another story for another blog.

And some accessories of interest, 100-packs of Verbatim DVD-R or DVD+R are $25 each, which comes out to 25c per blank dvd. Not bad for Verbatic at brick and mortar.

If you are looking for an extra monitor to use as yoru home or office base when you are "grounded" there is a 21.6" Samsung 216BW widescreen LCD (3000:1 contrast ratio) for $270, and a 20" Sceptre 2148-8212 widescreen LCD monitor (support digital video up to 1080p) for $180.

For those on the go, the 4gb Sandisk Cruzer Micro ReadyBoost USB drive (the name is longer than the actual device!) goes for $35, and as always, no rebates!

Meanwhile the cash for cartridges is back! You receive $3 per cartridge (max 5 cartridges per person per day) when you recycle Lexmark, Dell or HP.
