Memorial Weekend laptop clearance at Office Max

Office Max appears to be clearing out their inventory of laptops in this Memorial Day clearance sale! As you may already know, Office Max does not do rebates, so what the sticker says, is exactly what you pay! Their specials are usually in the form of price cuts or "free with purchase" bonus items.

The Acer Aspire AS5920-6423 goes for $650 and that is a nicely loaded laptop considering the price range. It has an Intel Core 2 Duo T5550 processor, 3gb of memory, 20gb hard disk, dvd burner, a/b/g wireless, built-in webcam and 5-in-1 memory card reader, a lovely 15.4" widescreen display, and of course Vista!

This also includes an unnamed Toshiba Satellite laptop going for $800 on clearance, and it features an AMD Turion 64 X2 DC TL-58 processor, dvd burner and a 17" widescreen. Not a whole lot of details are available. And at the same price we find an unnamed HP Pavilion notebook, which is bundled with an HP M547 digital camera and a C4280 3-in-1 printer. All that for $800 and on clearance.

And we have a nice desktop deal to talk about, from Acer, the AM 1620-S1209A, going for $500 and this includes a 20" widescreen LCD display! The desktop computer itself is powered by the Intel Pentium dual core E2140 processor, and has 2gb memory, 320gb hard disk, dvd burner, 14-in-1 memory card reader, Vista and lots more. Not a bad deal considering the specs and the included widescreen display!

No Rebates 468x60

Computer Accesories
The more computers you buy, the more accessories you need, and one accessory leads to another. It's a never ending cycle! And you can feed your cycle with your choice of LCD monitors, starting at $160 for a 19" Soyo widescreen, or $200 for a 19" Samsung 953BW, or $270 for a 21.6" widescreen Samsung 2252LW.

Want more monitors? How about a 22" Sceptre widescreen LCD for $220, on clearance of course, with a 1600x1200 resolution, 2000:1 contrast ratio, and video up to 1080p! Oh my!

Why not have a meter on the outside of a USB flash drive so you know how full it is? Not particular efficient, but hey, it's a fun gadgety thing to have! You can get this feature with the 8gb Lexar Secure II Plus usb drive, for $47. You do pay a bit more for the Lexar brand and the extras.

If you want a portable hard drive to backup or load your data to/from, the Maxtor One Touch 4 Mini goes for $80 and it has 160gb of hard disk, putting it at a rather high 50 cents per gigabyte. You do get a five year warranty with this one
