Dell Wireless Keyboard & Mouse Combo Was $60 | Now $20 & Free Shipping

Posted by on July 13, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Dell Wireless Keyboard & Mouse Combo Was $60 | Now $20 & Free Shipping

Dell Canada has discounted their Dell KM632 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo from $59.99 down to $19.99. This is the first time this keyboard and mouse combo has been discounted since its price increase (from $49.99 to $59.99) late last year due to our diving Canadian currency. Receive free shipping on all orders.

I could not price compare this exact unit in Canada as it is not sold at many other mainstream retailers. I did find it from a secondary seller at Amazon.ca, but the price was silly – $71.28. In the USA, Dell.com sells the same combo for $49.99 USD and Amazon.com sells the keyboard and mouse combo for $34.92 USD. Most keyboard and mouse combos retail for $30+ for even the most basic units. As an example, the cheapest HP wireless combo is $34.99.

This keyboard has a very clean profile with lovely raised keys and an ambidextrous mouse. You have no idea how hard it is to find a mouse in a set that can be used for either the left or the right hand. It is somewhat odd, but I seem to be surrounded by left-handed people (I am left-handed as well). This is a very useful feature.

The mouse appears to be full size and both units are wireless. They can connect to your desktop or you can use them as external peripherals for a laptop. While I don’t mind typing on my laptop’s keyboard, a friend of mine prefers a full size keyboard when he is at home. Thus, he uses an external keyboard with his laptop. I always use an external mouse with my laptop.

I was recently shopping for a wireless keyboard and mouse combo for a friend. He wanted a combo – instead of buying separately – so that the keyboard and mouse would be on the same USB receiver. When USB slots are limited on a computer, an external keyboard and mouse can take up two of your three available slots. You can get USB hubs that you plug into your computer, but the draw on your laptop’s power is increased with the number of items you have plugged in. I like to use no more ports than are actually on my computer.

Enjoy this $20 wireless mouse and keyboard set with free shipping.

Hipstreet Bluetooth Selfie Camera Extension Was $40 | Now $25 & Free Shipping @ Dell.ca

Posted by on July 6, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Hipstreet Bluetooth Selfie Camera Extension Was $40 | Now $25 & Free Shipping @ Dell.ca

Today’s deal is in tribute to the selfie culture we are currently cultivating in North America. At Dell Canada, the Hip Street Selfie Camera Extension is on sale from $39.99 down to $24.99 with free shipping!

This accessory is pretty self-explanatory. The ‘camera extension’ is actually a support system for your smartphone connected to a handle. As your phone is now an additional distance away, you can capture better selfies and selfies with more people (or body parts) in them. The device simply movies your phone away from you while still giving you that selfie ‘picture taken from slightly above’ look.

This device will work with most smart phone. You simply put your smart phone in the holder and use the handle to hold the phone farther away from you. This device comes equipped with Bluetooth: that means you do not need to set the timer on your phone before holding away. Instead, you can control the photo taking via the Bluetooth controls in the handle. The software is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones.

This little device is great for self-portraits or photos with a group of friends. The handle is fully adjustable for the perfect angle.

I price compared this device with a few other online retailers. Hipstreet Canada lists the manufacturer’s retail price as $49.99. Grand & Toy (US) lists a price of $32.72 plus a $5 ‘minimum order fee’ for not reaching a $50 order plus whatever shipping charges you would incur. Direct Dial Canada offers the same device for $31 but shipping is also extra. PC Canada did have this selfie extension rod on sale for $26.55 but shipping was extra and they are now sold out. Based on my research, Dell Canada’s price is quite good and the free shipping is a lovely bonus.

I think anyone with a smart phone takes selfies these days. Take a picture of your new haircut, your favourite outfit, your makeup, and more. Selfies are a great way to keep family and friends updated on how you are and what you look like! They can also be a great way to express your artistic side through photo composition, filters, and more. Take better selfies now with the Hipstreet Bluetooth Selfie Camera Extension.

Microsoft: Dell Inspiron 15.6″ Touchscreen Signature Ed. Laptop Was $499 | Now $327

Posted by on July 3, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Microsoft: Dell Inspiron 15.6 Touchscreen Signature Ed. Laptop Was $499 | Now $327

Microsoft Canada has discounted this lovely little Dell Inspiron 15 i3543-2501BLK Signature Edition Laptop from $499 down to $327 with free shipping.

This is a respectable laptop for everyday use. The laptop comes with:

  • 15.6-inch (396.24 mm) HD touchscreen
  • Intel Core i3-5005U
  • 4GB memory
  • 1TB HDD

In fact, this unit is a bit above your normal ‘basic’ laptop. You receive a huge 1TB hard drive and the screen is actually a touchscreen, like a tablet screen. I love these little laptop / tablet cross-breeds as you get so used to moving things around with your fingers on a tablet and smart phone only to revert back to a mouse on your desktop. Now, you receive the best of both worlds. One reviewer said:

I received it yesterday. At this price, it is really an amazing machine. Everything works well now and the touch screen works very well. I like it!

This would be an excellent laptop for school, university, and just for playing around with at home. I could see this fulfilling most people’s needs for a laptop unless you run a business or work online for a living.

I would like to impart to you the importance if signature edition laptops. Most computers these days come with an enormous amount of bloatware. That is software that manufacturers load on to new computers. This bloatware can be up to 60 or so programs, often higher. Toshiba is one of the worst offenders, with Sony and Lenovo close behind. You cannot just factory restore your computer as they are making OS images that include the bloatware. Essentially, it re-installs when you reinstall the OS.

Bloatware is bad. It can slow down any computer to a snail’s pace – even computers with really fast processors. I and a dear friend of mine are learning that on his Lenovo with an i7 processor. Now, Signature Edition Laptops do not have ANY bloatware or third-party trial-ware on them. These are CLEAN computers. Given my very recent experience with bloatware, I do not think I would buy any other computer in the future except for a Microsoft Signature Edition (or an Apple).

I have heard that the warranty is with Microsoft since you are buying the computer from them. However, you can transfer the warranty to Dell at no cost (if you want to).

Targus Life Style Backpack Was $74 | Now $25 & Free Shipping @ Dell

Posted by on June 30, 2015 at 2:00 PM

 Targus Life Style Backpack Was $74 | Now $25 & Free Shipping @ Dell

Have you just tossed your child’s worn out, weary backpack from this last school year? Perhaps you have noticed that they are outgrowing their current backpack and need a more substantial pack for the coming year. This Targus Life Style Backpack is on sale from $74.99 down to just $24.99 with Dell Canada’s usual free shipping no minimum.

Unusually, this backpack was easy to price compare. it seems many online electronic retailers are selling this backpack. Targus Canada even sells it themselves. Here is a rundown on the prices everywhere else:

  • $28.77 + shipping @ NCIX.com
  • $49.99 @ Shop.ca
  • $55.42 @ Direct Canada
  • $65.99 @ Newegg Canada
  • $72.11 @ Canada Computers
  • $73.99 @ Targus Canada

There is a wide range of prices, but all of them are double or more Dell Canada’s price except for NCIX. While the NCIX.com deal is quite good, you would need to pay an additional $7.98 for shipping. That brings your total price up to $36.75 before tax.

This is the 15.6″ Targus backpack in grey. It has plenty of pockets to stick your bits and bobs in: cell phone, pencils, erasers, markers, and more. The main compartment comes with a large padded pocket designed to fit up to a 15.6″ laptop. There is a separate pocket for a tablet and a zippered stash pocket as well for any flash drives or other important things.

In addition, the backpack also has extended compartment space for those few extra packages you pick up at the mall. The water bottle holder is easily accessible and placed separate from electronics: you do not want to get those wet.

This backpack is also ergonomically designed to stay comfortable upon your back. I always find this the most important part of a backpack. I really do not care how much can fit into the pack if it is uncomfortable on my shoulders. I used to have a backpack that would pop blood vessels on my shoulders from the ill distributed pressure.

Overall, this is a good looking backpack at a good price. It has all the space and compartments you need, and probably a few you do not. Carry your laptop, tablet, cell phone, water bottle, and more both safely and comfortably.
