Tigerdirect weekend specials

The Tigers have a new round of sales! We start at $50 with the Fujitsu 100GB 2.5" Mobile EIDE Hard Drive. That's 50 cents per gigabyte for those who don't want to do the math. No need to pull out the calculators!

If you don't have a portable elephant, you need to feed your computer more memory! And $40 after a $10 mail-in rebate can get you the Crucial 2 gig DDR2 Memory.


How about some Refurbished Laptops?
They got those too! If you are a fan of refurbished laptops and have had good luck with them in the past, you are more likely to be interested in the following.

First, at $460, and without rebates, you can get the refurbished Gateway MT6728. This notebook is powered by Pentium Dual Core 1.6GHz processor, has 2GB of DDR2 memory, a 160GB hard disk, a 15.4" WXGA display, wireless of course, Vista Home Premium, and things like that.

If you like the above, but would rather have an AMD processor, you are in luck. $500 will get you the refurbished Gateway T-1628 which is powered by the AMD64 X2 Dual-Core 2.0GHz processor, has 3GB DDR2 memory, 250GB hard disk drive, a mobility-friendly 14.1" WXGA display, HDMI, wireless, webcam, and the loved/dreaded WinVista Home Premium.


Brand New Laptops!
The Tigers are not done yet! If you don't want to take a risk with a refurbished model, they have plenty of new laptops on special!

We start at $600 with the affordable Acer Aspire 5520-5156. This has the AMD64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile 1.8GHz processor set, 2GB of DDR2, 250GB of hard disk, a typical 15.4" WXGA display, wireless, webcam, and of course WinVista Home Premium.

At $700, you can get the Gateway M-153S Laptop, which falls in the Intel camp with a Core2 Duo 2.0GHz processor, along with 2GB DDR2 memory, 160GB disk, 15.4" WXGA display, wireless, webcam, and Vista HP.

And now we move to the four-figure Gateway laptops! At $1360, you may be tempted by the Gateway P-173X FX Edition. This is an Intel camp notebook with a Core2-Duo 2.2GHz processor. Wireless fans not only get that, but also bluetooth. But you can also add bluetooth support via USB and such. Memory is nice, 4 gigs of DDR2. The hard disk is an okay 200GB for the price. Multimedia and gamers of course will want the 17" WXGA+ display. Also has webcam, and Vista Ultimate, which means more ways to blue-screen? :-)

We conclude the Gateway laptop extravaganza with the $1630 Gateway P-173XL FX Edition, which is an Inteloid with its Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz processor module. Bluetooth and Wireless alphabet soup (a/b/g/n) give you flexibility. Memory is nice at 4GB DDR2 and the hard disk is plenty at 400GB. 17" WUXGA for your multimedia and gaming action. Security is tight with the fingerprint Reader. Also includes a webcam and Vista Ultimate waste of resources ;-)
