Dell Canada: Laptop or Desktop for Under $400

Dell Canada: Laptop or Desktop for Under $400

Need to replace your clunky old laptop with the blue screen of death or need a new desktop on a budget? Dell Canada has two deals on right now where you can buy a brand new desktop or a laptop for under $400 each.

First of all let me introduce you to my little friend the Inspiron 3000 Small Desktop. Regularly priced at $449.99, this computer is now on sale for $399.99. He comes with 4GB of memory, a 500GB hard drive, and Windows 7 Premium for all of us who abhor Windows 8 *shudder*. The design is super compact so it won’t take up a lot of space in your home. One of my favourite features is the multi-media card reader, which I use on my computer all the time when transferring photos from my DSLR. As per usual, monitor and accessories must be purchased separately if you don’t already have them.

The second fantastic deal is on this little Inspiron 15 (non-touch) laptop. Originally $379.99, it is now down to $349.99. The next time my mother does in her current laptop she is totally getting one of these. This is the perfect basic laptop for anyone needing to use a word processor, social media, and email. It also features 4GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive so, in my humble opinion, it is better than the desktop because it has its own built in monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Staples Canada Printables: $25 – $75 Off During 5 Days Of Great Deals

Posted by on March 24, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Staples Canada Printables: $25   $75 Off During 5 Days Of Great Deals

Starting March 25th 2014, you can present a different Staples printable coupon in-stores to save up to $75 on items like camcorders, cameras, hard drives, monitors, tablets, laptops and desktop computers.

Valid for only one day each, here are the different deals you can take advantage of with the Staples coupon:

  • Tuesday, March 25th 2014: $25 off any camera or camcorder $99+
  • Wednesday, March 26th 2014: $30 off any hard drive $100+
  • Thursday, March 27th 2014: $50 off any computer monitor $149+
  • Friday, March 28th 2014: $50 off any tablet $299+
  • Saturday, March 29th 2014: $75 off any laptop or desktop computer $599+

As I’m due to give birth soon, I have been planning to add a whole bunch of feel-good movies onto a hard drive to potentially distract myself and hubby with at the hospital. Whether we’ll actually get to watch them is something I’ll have to update you moosers on later, but in the meantime that’s the plan, with the only problem being that I’m in need of a new external hard drive. So I’ll probably be using the Wednesday coupon to save $30 on the Western Digital 4TB USB 3.0 My Book external hard drive priced at $189.99. Although it’s $171.24 at both Best Buy and Future Shop, with the coupon, it comes down to just $159.99 at Staples.

In any case, there is definitely no shortage of stock to choose from; just make sure to carefully price compare with all of the other major stores first!

Microsoft Canada: 50% Off Surface Pro 128 GB – Now $499

Posted by on March 18, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Microsoft Canada: 50% Off Surface Pro 128 GB   Now $499

Microsoft Canada is offering the 128GB Surface Pro for only $499 which is $500 off the original retail price.

So, this tablet hasn’t sold for its original price for a while. Most places had priced it around $650 for the last few months and then it went on sale at both Best Buy and Future Shop for $499.99. However, you can’t buy it there because they are both SOLD OUT (that went quick). However, people seem to be ignoring the fact that Microsoft sells their own products and you can still buy the Surface Pro there for like 95 to 99 cents cheaper, and it is still in stock (for now).

What is so cool about this thing? It is a laptop in tablet form. Have you seen the ad with the awesome looking computer propped up on a kickstand and then they put it flat on the floor and draw on it? That is the Surface Pro. It combines the best of both worlds and changes the way you interact with your electronics. Here is what one enthusiastic reviewer said:

I’ve been using the surface pro for 2 weeks now without any problems. I am highly impressed with the design and capabilities of this tablet. This is a powerful machine and is unlike anything else on the market today. It’s great for gaming as well as productivity, I highly recommend the type cover to transform it into a true laptop and tablet or as I like to call it .. “Tabtop”. I love it, it’s simply amazing and wipes the floor with ipads!

This is going to sell out extremely soon if Best Buy and Future Shop are any indication. If you want one, don’t wait to buy it. If you are a student, you can save an extra 10% on the Surface.

Get free shipping on all orders.

Shop.ca: HP Envy Recline 23″ Touchsmart Beats SE Desktop Only $999

Posted by on March 4, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Shop.ca: HP Envy Recline 23 Touchsmart Beats SE Desktop Only $999

Shop.ca has a great deal on the HP Envy Recline 23″ Touchsmart Beats SE SE all-in-one desktop for only $999.99, was $1299.99. If you have any rewards credits you can also use those to lower the price, and as a new customer, you can save another $15.

Of course I price compared this item for you, with other stores coming in at higher prices like Frontier PC, which sells this for $1073, Microsoft Store, which sells it for $1199 and NCIX, which sells it for 1057, but it is on back order. No one hits the under $1000 mark. And I don’t know about the rest of these stores, but Shop.ca also ships it for free, saving another potential cost.

Touchscreen technology has come such a long way. My mother-in-law has a touchscreen computer and loves it and I know that anyone who is currently in school would love it, having grown up on the swipe and go technologies. I’m still old school, but this still really intrigues me.

With a 23″ inch adjustable screen that is viewable from any angle, you can do so much with this machine. It has wireless capabilities so you can use it like a personal tablet to another, larger screen if you choose. But, if you choose to do what you need right on its display, it has stunning HD quality. The Beats sound system also makes you feel like the actors in the movie are in the room with you. Sweet, I’ll take one Channing Tatum please.

HP Canada Coupon Code: Exclusive $50 Off + Free Shipping On High End HP Envy Computers

Up your game this Christmas with a high performance Envy PC from HP!

Clcik here to shop @ HP.com now

  • Coupon Code: BAR_s50onHP_PERFORMANCE
  • Discount: $50 off + Free shipping
  • Expiry: 22nd December 2013

Most sales, it seems, focus on laptops, so I’m glad that HP has a sale on PCs, and some pretty good ones in their Envy lineup. There are three available, but we can’t link directly to them. You just need to follow that link up there and search for these models: H5P24AA HP Envy Desktop, H5P88AA Pheonix & H6U27AA Recline. It’ll probably work best to just search the model number (H6U27AA as opposed to H6U27AA Recline.)

The H6U27AA Recline is an all in one touch screen PC that, after our discount, is $1099.99. The H5P24AA HP Envy Desktop is $849.99 after our code. The beefiest computer here by far is the H5P88AA Pheonix. It’ll run you $1149.99 with our code. They will also all have free shipping with our discount!

MSI 17.3″ Gaming Notebook for $1600 & a FREE 50” TV @ Newegg Ultimate Black Friday Sale!

Posted by on November 29, 2013 at 2:00 AM

MSI 17.3 Gaming Notebook for $1600 & a FREE 50” TV @ Newegg Ultimate Black Friday Sale!

We recently got word in an email from Newegg.ca that they will be offering a pretty hot deal on an MSI gaming laptop for the Black Friday weekend. The MSI GS70 2OD-229US Intel Core i7 4700HQ notebook is currently priced at $1600 plus $10 shipping – that’s an OK price for the notebook, but the clincher is that you get a free 50” LED LDTV!

When Newegg first emailed me, the price on this MSI notebook was due to be $159.99 (!) – Shawn spotted the deal and we thought it was amazing! But an email to Newegg confirmed that was sadly a typo.

A quick note on the specification of the notebook:

  • Intel Core i7 4700HQ(2.40GHz)
  • 12GB Memory 500GB HDD 128GB SSD
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M
  • 1920 x 1080
  • Windows 8

They’re classifying this as a gaming laptop, so if that’s what you are looking for, then consider this deal. I showed the spec to my other half and he was quite impressed.

We asked Newegg for more info on the TV itself but they weren’t able to give a lot – this is all they said, “It’s a 50” LED 1080p HDTV.” Even for a non-branded 50″ TV like that, you’d be talking about at least $600, so it’s quite a good free gift with purchase. UPDATE – the brand is Changhong.

We have no ideas of the quantities that are going to be available of this MSI laptop and TV combo bundle, so if you are interested, buy it when you can.

(Expiry: 1st December 2013)

UPDATE: Newegg Ultimate Black Friday Sale: 24 Hours Only

I’m adding this information on to this post, as I have only just received it. Newegg launched an Ultimate Black Friday sale, for 24 hours only over Black Friday.

I’m sorry for the lack of detail here, but I am just going to run down some of the highlights:

Lenovo Canada: Black Friday Sale on NOW: Up To 36% Off Laptops & Tablets

Posted by on November 26, 2013 at 12:21 PM

Lenovo Canada: Black Friday Sale on NOW: Up To 36% Off Laptops & Tablets

Lenovo Canada has just released its Black Friday list of doorbuster deals and there is up to 36% off to be had on laptops and tablets. The tricky part involving this sale is that there is a different coupon code available for each item and even more specifically, for each model. So be sure to check right below the price for the specific Lenovo eCoupon you need to use at checkout as it won’t be automatically applied.

Though there are loads of laptops and even a couple of tablets to choose from, the laptop that right away caught my attention is the IdeaPad Z510 on sale for $549 instead of its original price of $849 ($300 in savings).

In theory, this should be a ridiculous criteria with regards to picking a laptop but I won’t lie that its color: dark chocolate, definitely caught my attention and had me reading more into the laptop. What I discovered pleasantly surprised me as for its reduced priced, this 15.6″ laptop packs a good deal of punch for anyone on the hunt for a laptop that can achieve the basics (web browsing, email checking and watching videos) and potentially even more. While it probably wouldn’t be able to run a massive game like World Of Warcraft without any lag, it could however be used for ordinary games like those on Big Fish Games and Green Man Gaming — perfect for kids!

Tech-wise, it is powered by a 4th Generation Intel Core i5 processor with 3.10 GHz, Intel HD Graphics 4600 and runs Windows 8 in 64-bit with a 500GB hard drive.

Otherwise, if you’re in the market for a tablet, especially with the holidays right around the corner, then the IdeaTab A300 is definitely worth considering. Though similar to its IdeaTab A100 counterpart, it’s much more powerful for just $46.80 more. On sale for $178.62 (reg. $229), the A300 model boasts quad-core performance, fast connectivity, up to 7 hours of battery life and two cameras (front & back) — all within a 7″ HD display that is neither too big, nor too small for lightweight activities such as web surfing, listening to music and watching your favorite TV shows or movies.

On an even brighter note, free shipping is also available on everything!

  • Coupon Code: BMOOSE50

This is a great deal on some good computers. You generally don’t see coupon codes like this for HP so take advantage of it while it lasts. On top of the $50 off you also get free shipping. It’s a great time too. Christmas is right around the corner and if your kids are anything like I was when I was a kid, they’d lose their mind for a new computer.

Of course you could get your kids a rubber ball and get yourself a laptop. That’s never a bad thing. And HP has been doing some really cool form factors things. They have touch PCs and laptops, laptops that flip and bend around and even some whose monitors pull right off to act as a tablet.

You cant use this on business PCs and it isn’t valid with any other deals.

MemoryExpress Canada: Get $75 Of In-Game Goodies With GTX 650 Series Video Card

Posted by on September 13, 2013 at 9:00 PM

MemoryExpress Canada: Get $75 Of In Game Goodies With GTX 650 Series Video Card

If you play Neverwinter, Warframe and Marvel Heroes and you want a new video card to run them, a GTX 650 series from MemoryExpress is what you want!

I’ve seen deals like this and I didn’t write them up because they are so specific, but I decided that even if it doesn’t appeal to every PC gamer looking for a new video card, the three games involved are popular enough that at least one of them will hit with a few people reading this. Basically the deal is that if you buy a GTX 650 from MemoryExpress, you get 465 Platinum in Warframe, one million Astral Diamonds in Neverwinter and 2600 Gold in Marvel Heroes. Each of those are worth $25, so the amount of value you get is dependent on which of the games you own.

If you don’t own any of them (or don’t plan on buying any of them) then this deal isn’t for you. If you own or are planning on owning one of these games and you are in the market for a new video card, the GTX 650 series is a great option. Memory Express has thirty of them for anywhere from $115 to $200. They almost all include some instant savings as well as a mail-in-rebate, so there is a bit more for savings there.

Shipping is $4.99.

Do you own any of these games? All of them? Let me know in the comments below!

Dell Canada: $100 Off New Inspiron 15R (Non-Touch) – Now $599.99

Posted by on September 6, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Dell Canada: $100 Off New Inspiron 15R (Non Touch)   Now $599.99

Receive $100 off the new Inspiron 15R laptop (non-touch) from Dell Canada. The laptop costs $699.99 at regular price. However, it is on sale for only $599.99.

This computer is actually fully loaded:

  • 4th Generation Intel® Core i5-4200U processor (3M Cache, up to 2.6 GHz)
  • Windows 8
  • 8GB RAM
  • 1TB Hard Drive

The i5 processor and 8GB RAM give you excellent speed, and the 1TB hard drive is just huge. It has enough space to fit a large music, photo, and movie collection without having to dump the data onto an external hard drive, though it is still good to have an external hard drive for backup purposes. If you are looking for a mid-range computer, this is a pretty good combination of performance and price.

Dell Canada offers free shipping on all purchases.

MacPaw Software: 50% off CleanMyPC or CleanMyMac 2 (Only $20)

Take all the work out of cleaning your computer with CleanMyPC and CleanMyMac 2.

First things first, the Macpaw links above get you the discounts. If you just go to the MacPaw website (which the image links to) and look for these deals, you wont see them.

CleanMyPC is normally $43.46 but you save $21.74 and pay $21.72. The link for CleanMyMac saves you $19.98 off of the normal $39.95 price tag. You get it for only $19.97.

I don’t really have a use for these types of programs. It’s because I’m a computer nerd. I do computer stuff for my day job, my specialty when I got my Electrical Engineering degree was Computer Systems, my passion is computers. It’s what I do. Taking time to optimize my system is fun for me. I’m not the norm.

Normal people don’t take pleasure in making sure their cache and temp files are always cleared. That’s where programs like CleanMyPC and CleanMyMac 2 come in to play. These programs do all the work for you. Both of these programs will clean up old, left over and unneeded files on your computer but they also have a bunch of utilities that help keep your PC running smoothly.

If you don’t get all excited over computer maintenance, then check out one of these programs. Both of them have 4/5 stars from customer reviews on CNET.

There is no shipping as these are software downloads.

Sony Canada Promo Codes: Up To $200 Off A Custom Computer

Posted by on September 2, 2013 at 6:00 PM

Sony Canada Promo Codes: Up To $200 Off A Custom Computer

Sony Canada is offering up to $200 off a custom computer with promo code. Each unit has its own promo code, depending on how much will be taken off. You can get from $100 – $200 off, depending what you buy.

I won’t give you all of the codes, because they are all dependent on product. For example, this Vaio Duo 13 custom ultrabook is $200 off with coupon VSC200, with a starting price of $1419. I say starting price because you can customize literally everything on this machine. Start with processor, operating system, software, display, memory, touchscreen, storage and more. Move on to colour, service plans, anti-virus software and accessories. Your machine price will vary greatly depending on your options, but you’ll get $200 off in the end with your coupon code.

If you plan on spending a little less, this Vaio Fit 15E non-touch custom laptop starts at $549.99, but you can get $100 off with coupon VSC100.

Each code is listed beside the product for which you can use it for.

You’ll get free shipping for all your orders as well!

Check out the Bargainmoose forum for all the coupon codes you need for Sony.
