Tiger Direct Canada: Acer C720 2827 Intel Celeron 11.6 Chromebook Google Chrome OS (Refurbished) | Was $232 Now $168

Looking for a nice affordable Chromebook computer? Then you should check out today’s deal at Tiger Direct! It’s for a refurbished Acer C720-2827 Intel Celeron 11.6″ Chromebook, which you can now get for $167.99 (plus $11.45 shipping). The regular price of this Chromebook is $231.77, so this is a pretty decent deal!

In my opinion, this looks like a handy device to bring around with you when you want to get some work done while you’re on-the-run. It apparently has wonderful battery life, too! It may not be a tablet, but then again not everyone likes a tablet – some prefer to use an actual keyboard instead of a touchscreen interface when they’re typing. If that’s the case, then this Acer C720-2827 Intel Celeron 11.6″ Chromebook may be suitable for you.

I’m actually very curious about the Google Chrome Operating System that’s installed on this Chromebook. I plan to check out some Chromebooks during the next week so I can try out this intriguing new OS!

Excellent deal. Featherweight, great for surfing,email and review of docs. Chrome language is not recognized by Word however. Really great for travel. Battery life longer than expected… 8.5 hrs. Very quick to start. Links to favorites stored on home page. All very convenient.

Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Dell Refurbished Store Coupon Code: 40% Off Entire Store

Posted by on September 10, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Dell Refurbished Store Coupon Code: 40% Off Entire Store

BUMP: This coupon has been brought back for a short time so I have updated the expiry. They have also RESTOCKED a ton of stuff on their website and have new stuff as well – be sure to check it out because this deal is wicked socks!

Dell Refurbished Canada has a coupon code for 40% off their entire website. It is rather mind-blowing to think about really, as refurbished products are already discounted from their original retail price and yet are in the same general condition.

Click here to shop @ Dell Refurbished Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 40BTS14
  • Discount: 40% off site wide
  • Expiry: 29th August 2014 14th September 2014

You also will receive free ground shipping on orders over $199. As you can expect from refurbished products, quantities are limited so grab any hot deals you see. Did I forget to mention that? This coupon code is valid on everything, which includes the Dell Hot Deals section. Stock changes almost daily, so check back often for new items.

Dell Refurbished currently has two Dell Professional Series P2210 22-inch Flat Panel Monitors priced at $155 apiece. You get a 22″ screen with a maximum resolution of 1680 x 1050. The monitor has four USB 2.0 connectors as well as VGA, DVI-D, and DisplayPort. Both Energy Star compliant and EPEAT Gold-qualified, this monitor will not cost a lot of power to use. While this monitor is no longer available on the Dell website, I found the equivalent Dell 22″ monitor listed on Dell.com for $219.99 market price, on sale for $189.99. After coupon code, you will pay only $93 for the Dell P2210 monitor.

There appears to be a lot of laptops and desktops that are the same on Dell Refurbished. That may sound odd, but they may be lease returns or just a line that had some issues they needed to fix. There are a few Latitude E6500 Core 2 Duo 2.80 (T9600) business laptops in stock currently for $399. While the hard drive may be small, these are not designed for holding tons of information; rather they are designed to be super fast. You are working with a 2.8 GHz processor. Did you know your basic Macbook Air comes with a 1.4 GHz processor?  This baby will boot up and go through webpages so fast you do not even know what is what. I am on a gaming computer and it is only 2.3 GHz. After coupon code, this computer comes down to $239.40 and it would qualify for free shipping.

Rumour has it that Dell Refurbished will be restocking often, so if you do not see anything you like keep your eyes open and check back often. You have three more days to enjoy this deal!

For this and any future Dell Refurbished coupon codes, please visit the forum. Often they are put up there before we blog them.

Amazon Canada: $100 Off HP 11″ Chromebook Just $220 (HOT!) – EXPIRED

Posted by on September 8, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Amazon Canada: $100 Off HP 11 Chromebook Just $220 (HOT!)   EXPIRED

Amazon Canada has a very hot deal on the HP 11″ Chromebook 11-1101us (2GB RAM, 16GB, Chrome OS) this week. Purchase this awesome little laptop for just $219.94 with free shipping, which is $100 off the original price of $319.99.

This computer runs the Chrome OS with a Samsung Exynos 5250 processor, 2GB RAM, and a 16GB solid-state hard drive. The full size keyboard is maintained for comfortable typing without running into the wrong letters. The Chromebook also features two USB ports, a webcam, WLAN, and Bluetooth. The battery lasts for up to six hours before needing recharging. It also has an 11.6″ IPS (Integrated Prenatal Screening) display with 1366 x 768 resolution that offers wider color gamut and contrast ratio packed into this small little unit. I do not know much about laptop screen technology, but word on the street says that this is a very good deal for a laptop featuring an IPS screen.

The Chromebook is not a regular laptop. It runs web-based apps from Google instead of traditional PC applications. However, that does not limit you from seeing or editing documents that have been created through Adobe or Word. You will just do so via a Google app instead of those PC programs.

The Chromebook differs in another way. Your information is not stored on the computer. Rather, you store your documents, photos, and more to Google Drive (Google’s Cloud-based storage service). They do not take up space on your computer so your device never becomes bogged down. I am not so sure I like the idea of giving over my information and valuable data to someone else to store without having my own copy of it, but the number of times I have lost a hard drive and all the information stored on it is countless. Maybe this is a better way.

I also made sure to do a little price comparing in case you doubted the awesomeness of this deal. The same computer is $279.99 @ BestBuy, $339.59 @ NCIX.com, $318 @ Walmart.ca, $323.03 @ Canadian Computers & Electronics, and $287.26 @ Hookbag.ca. Most of these companies charge shipping as well, so you are getting an even better deal at Amazon.ca because the HP Chromebook will ship free as it costs over $25.

Do any of our Moosers own one of these? If you do, please comment and let us know what you think of the HP Chromebook.

The Source Canada: Free Printer With Laptop Purchase ($80 Value)

Posted by on August 28, 2014 at 4:30 PM

The Source Canada: Free Printer With Laptop Purchase ($80 Value)

Receive a free HP Deskjet 2542 all-in-one printer worth $79.99 when you purchase any laptop at The Source Canada for four days only.

This older model printer is no longer available at the majority of the stores I looked at when I was attempting to price compare. However, companies bring out new printer models several times a year so it does not surprise me that a perfectly good printer is no longer on vogue. My nearly four-year-old HP Touchsmart printer was no longer sold mere months after I bought it, and yet it still functions perfectly well (except for the odd digested paper).

You do not need to add the printer to your cart; rather it will be automatically added for you with a qualifying laptop and then discounted to $0.

The Source Canada: Free Printer With Laptop Purchase ($80 Value)

Let us talk about inexpensive computers. Face it, not everyone has the money to go out put down half a month’s income on a new connection to the mythical land of Facebook and  planet Twitter. In addition, as most honest computer technicians worth their salt will tell you, the computers that people own far exceed their requirements. It is like getting a Lamborghini to go grocery shopping: overkill. Thankfully, The Source has several base models that will cost you under $250 and take care of your basic needs.

Acer Aspire AOD270-1892 10.1″ Netbook – Was $349.98 | Now $199.96

This netbook is the ultimate laptop for portability. The 10.1″ screen is still big enough to function for decent word processing, and the attached keyboard and following stats make it far better than a tablet that costs tons more. The stats are:

  • Intel Atom N2600 Dual-Core Processor
  • 1GB DDR3 SDRAM Memory
  • 320GB 5400RMP SATA hard drive

Acer Aspire One AO725-0691 11.6″ Netbook – Was $399.95 | Now $219.96

Get a slightly bigger screen, faster processor, and a bigger chunk of memory with this Netbook for only $20 more. Your screen also upgrades to LCD for superior viewing of HD films. The features are:

  • AMD C-60 Processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 320GB Hard drive
  • Microsoft Office software

Both are open box models with full manufacturer’s warranty. The free printer offer can also stack, so if you buy two laptops you will receive two free printers. I do not think anyone needs two printers, but you might be able to sell the second one to cut down your overall costs.

Receive free shipping on orders of $30 or more.

Lenovo Canada Labour Day Sale: Save Up To 33% On Laptops & Computers With Coupon Code (Expired)

Posted by on August 26, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Lenovo Canada Labour Day Sale: Save Up To 33% On Laptops & Computers With Coupon Code (Expired)

Back to school, back to school…whenever I hear those three words, I still somehow hear Adam Sandler’s voice ringing in my ears from Billy Madison. With Lenovo’s labour day sale, it’s no wonder why these words are so relevant at this time – after all, there is a myriad of money saving deals on laptops, computers, and computer accessories that are sure to get students and parents alike psyched for back to school shopping. At this time, we’re going to look at some of the best finds in Lenovo’s labour day sale, where you’d be able to save anywhere from 23% to 33% off of the retail price.

Click here to check this deal @ Lenovo now

  • Coupon Code: DOORBUSTER
  • Discount: Depends On Deal (From 23% to 33%)
  • Expires: Unknown

In order to enjoy some decent savings on the following laptops, you’ll need to enter the coupon code DOORBUSTER when purchasing the selection that best suits your needs. Listed below are some Lenovo laptops that you can get at a great price during this promotion:

Lenovo Y40 – $729 (Regular Price: $1,099 – Save 33%)
If you’re looking for a laptop that’s powerful enough to provide you with an enjoyable gaming experience, the Lenovo Y40 is the laptop for you. I’ve been burned before when it comes to choosing a laptop that had less than satisfactory specifications; I didn’t think I would play many games on my laptop compared to my desktop computer, but I was unfortunately very wrong (trying to play a game with lag can really try your patience). With a powerful AMD Radeon R9 M275 2 GB video card under the hood, this would be wonderful for gamers. To show you how much of a deal this is, the very similar Lenovo Y50 sells on Newegg for $1,199.99 (plus $12.99 shipping).

Lenovo Z50 – $419 (Regular Price: $599 – Save 30%)
You’ll have ample room to save projects, photos, videos, and music on the Lenovo Z50, thanks to its massive 1TB hard drive. This laptop retails for $699.99 (plus $9.99 shipping) on Newegg – that’s $280.99 more than the price that’s being offered by Lenovo!

Lenovo U40p – $579 (Regular Price: $799.99 – Save 27%)
If you find yourself “on the go” constantly, the Lenovo U40p can best accommodate your needs. I know I’m traveling constantly as a freelance writer, so it’s important to have a laptop that’s travel friendly like this model is. It weighs less than four pounds, and has an extended battery life that can last up to ten hours, according to the Lenovo website. The upgraded i7 model can be found on Amazon for a whopping $1,239.82 (plus $13.37 shipping).

Lenovo Flex 2 15 – $739 (Regular Price: $969 – Save 23%)
This particular laptop intrigues me the most. It’s just so different from the others in terms of its appearance, since it’s an incredibly thin and light machine that also has touchscreen support (thanks to its ten-point multitouch display). Here’s a snippet of a review of the Flex 2 15 from Lenovo’s website:

“I really LOVE Stand Mode! I’m an accountant always working from a stack of papers and I can get the built – in keyboard and track pad out of the way! Now I can put papers in front of me and a wireless keyboard off to the side – true desktop replacement but still portable. The built – in keyboard is nice and satiny smooth.”

When September is on the horizon, the one thing that’s typically seen is that there are many back to school sales out there, whether it’s from retail electronics giants, or if they’re popular online retailers. One thing to remember is that these prices don’t include taxes, shipping and handling, or any recycling fees, so keep that in mind when making your purchase. You can also find some great deals on computer accessories and desktop computers on Lenovo’s website, so check out their Labour Day sale by clicking here.

Apple Canada Back to School Offer

Posted by on July 1, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Apple Canada Back to School Offer

Apple Canada has just started up their back to school offer for students and teachers. With the purchase of desktops, laptops, iPads, and iPhones you will receive up to a $110 Apple Store gift card.

The first offer is two-fold. When you buy a laptop or desktop in the Apple Store for Education, you save money off the original retail price.

Buy a Mac for university and get $110 Apple Store gift card only at the Apple Store for Education. For example, an 11″ Macbook Air will cost you $949 as a student, which is $50 off the regular price of $999. Then, you will also receive the $110 bonus Apple Store Card.

In the land of desktops, the 21.5-inch: 1.4GHz Mac is $1149 regularly, but it costs $1099 with educational pricing. You will also receive that $110 gift card with your purchase.

If you purchase an iPad for college, you will receive a $55 Apple store gift card and receive educational pricing discounts. The iPad mini starts at $319 at Apple, but with the educational discount, it will cost students and teachers just $299 and you get the bonus $55 Apple Store gift card. Likewise, the Apple Air in the educational store starts at $499 instead of the regular $519 and comes with that gift card.

If you buy an iPhone for school, you will also receive a $55 Apple Store gift card but there are no further educational discounts. It is still a good deal, if you have wanted to get your hands on an iPhone because you can use the gift card to load your phone up with all the apps you want to buy and some great music as well.

This was always my favourite time of year to buy my Apple products. I really enjoyed combining the gift and the student discount to optimize my buying power. My graduation is in November so I will no longer be a student for the first time in many years. I am now carefully considering what I should buy before my status as a student ends best to take advantage of student discounts like these. You never realize how nice this kind of discount is until you are no longer eligible!

Apple Canada offers free shipping on orders of $75 or more so any major electronics, like these, that you will be buying will ship free.

Dell Canada: Upgraded Inspiron 15 For $549.99 (Save $109)

Posted by on June 16, 2014 at 8:30 PM

Dell Canada: Upgraded Inspiron 15 For $549.99 (Save $109)

Looking for a new computer, but the base models are just not cutting it for you? Pick up this upgraded Inspiron 15 (Non-Touch) with 1 Year In-Home Service Plan included for just $549.99 (was $658.99).

This computer comes with a 4th Generation Intel Core™ i5 Processor instead of the standard i3 processor. This is a huge upgrade in speed that you will certainly notice. Most computers around this price range are being sold with i3 or equivalent processors with equal stats or i5+ processors with smaller hard drives and less memory. This Dell computer has a 750 GB hard drive (opposed to the standard 500 GB at this price range) and comes with 6GB of RAM.

This is the non-touch model. The touch model allows you to handle the screen as if it were a tablet. However, this is the more traditional laptop model.

The one year in home service plan is worth $59 a year and gives you the added benefit of in home service after remote diagnosis in about one to two days after an error is confirmed. I am sure this is restricted to cities or larger populated areas of Canada. I could certainly see this being very useful as next month I am going to be dealing with Dell over my computer’s refusal to acknowledge its own charging cord, thus, it has stopped charging the battery. I know I will have to send my entire computer in, which is going to be an absolute pain and take forever. Thankfully, I bought an extended warranty.

This laptop comes with Windows 8, so if you have not transitioned over yet there will be a learning curve. I bought a laptop for my mother with Windows 8 on it and it took her a while to get used to it.

This 15″ laptop is a good balance between speed and space. A step up from the base model, you get a faster processor, amble memory and hard drive space, and the standard SD slot for a good price. I highly recommend signing up for the free Dell Advantage program so that you will receive 5% of your purchase back in Dell rewards. When it comes to 5% back on the price of a laptop: that is some significant cash. You could use it to buy a case, mouse, or anything else that tickles your fancy.

As per usual, receive free shipping on all orders with Dell Canada.

The Source Canada: $130 Off HP or Acer Laptop

Posted by on June 4, 2014 at 5:00 PM

The Source Canada: $130 Off HP or Acer Laptop

The Source Canada is offering $130 off two fantastic little entry level laptops that will serve all your needs and more. Save $130 on either the ACER V3-571-6847 or the HP Pavilion 15-E020CA.

First off, let us look at the Acer V3-571-6847, which would be my choice of the two laptops. The laptop is in “open box” condition with full warranty. Regularly, the laptop retails for $499 but The Source currently has it on sale for only $369.96. I price compared with the manufacturer themselves and they sell this exact computer for $499. This computer measures 15.6″ and features:

  • Intel core I3-2328M processor
  • 500GB hard drive
  • 6 GB RAM memory
  • and Windows 8-Iron

This is a solid computer with a good balance between speed and space. I do not know much about the Windows 8-Iron operating system, but I assume anything is an improvement on Windows 8. What really impresses me about this laptop is the price: you can pick up this laptop in mint condition with full warranty for $370. This is a little dream machine.

The second sweet little computer deal I found at The Source is on this HP Pavilion 15-E020CA laptop. It is also an “open box” model that comes with full manufacturer’s warranty. Originally, $479.99, the laptop is now on sale for $349.99. I could not find this laptop at many places, but I did locate it at Canada Computers where it was priced at $468.88 (though OOS). This beauty is also 15.6″ and features:

  • AMD Elite A6-5350M Accelerated Processor
  • 750GB hard drive
  • 4 GB RAM memory
  • and Windows 8

Comparing the two computers, the HP has a larger hard drive but smaller memory, which does affect speed. It will really depend on your own personal preference. I like a more balanced computer so I would go for the Acer, which combines decent speed with a good sized hard drive. If you tend to store a lot of music, videos, and photos on your computer (I call it digital hoarder syndrome) you might want to consider the HP which gives you an extra 250 GB hard drive for $20 less.

Both these laptops come in under $400, which is a great price for a laptop these days. With the HP at $350 and the Acer at $370, you can really pick which laptop serves your needs. No matter which laptop you choose, either laptop will come with free shipping as they cost over $20 each.

There are many more discounted open box laptops on sale at The Source Canada. Check them all out!

Future Shop: ASUS Laptop 760GB HDD / 8GB RAM Now $399.99 (Save $80)

Posted by on April 14, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Future Shop: ASUS Laptop 760GB HDD / 8GB RAM Now $399.99 (Save $80)

Future Shop has a pretty sweet deal on an ASUS laptop just loaded with a 750 GB hard drive, 8GB of RAM (memory), and an Intel Pentium 2117U processor. On sale for $399.99, you save $80 off the original price of $479.99.

Laptop deals are hard to compare apple to apples as there are so many different brands and configurations within a brand and even a model. However, I found the exact same model with an inferior amount of RAM for a higher price elsewhere. Best Buy has the ASUS X551CA with the same size of hard drive but only with 6GB of RAM for $499.99. So not only are you getting more RAM at Future Shop, you are getting your computer for $100 cheaper.

Most computers around the $400 price range these days are clocking in around a 500GB hard drive with 4GB of RAM, sometimes 6GB. ASUS might not be the first name you think of when you say “I need a new computer” but you can get a lot of value tucked into one of these units for a price that cannot be beat.

You will receive free shipping with your computer purchase as it costs over $20.

Sony Canada: VAIO Fit 15E Laptop Only $626

Posted by on April 2, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Sony Canada: VAIO Fit 15E Laptop Only $626

Sony Canada is offering 10% to 30% off clearance customized laptops currently and they have this VAIO Fit 15E Laptop on sale for $626.49.

This laptop comes with:

  • Intel Core i5-3337U processor
  • 15.5″ LED backlit display (1366 x 768)
  • 8GB RAM
  • 500GB (5400rpm) HDD
  • Intel HD Graphics 4000

I did some price comparing but I had a hard time finding this exact configuration in this laptop. Usually I found it with a bit of a bigger hard drive and priced around $800. Given that was the usual price I found this laptop for, I figured this discounted price was a pretty good deal even with the smaller hard drive.

I don’t know much about the Sony VAIO but I was introduced to them when I was 19. My then boyfriend had the smallest laptop I had ever seen (I think it was like 11″) and it was a Sony VAIO. It was such a tiny little thing and it was white whereas the vast majority of laptops were black so that little Sony laptop has stuck in my brain all these years. It was a fantastic little device.

This is an online exclusive deal so you will not find this in your local stores. All items ship for free from Sony Canada.

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!

CanadaComputers: Asus B400A Ultrabook – 14.1″ Screen, Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD for $749 (Save $200)

CanadaComputers: Asus B400A Ultrabook   14.1 Screen, Intel Core i5, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD for $749 (Save $200)

Get your Asus Ultrabook for only $749 at Canada Computers!

CanadaComputers has this listed as a “business ultrabook” which is probably because it’s a bit underpowered. Of course a lot of people buy way more computer than they need. If you do email, Facebook and cat videos on YouTube, this is going to work just fine for you. You don’t need to go all out unless you’re going to play some newer games, do video editing or any other heavy lifting. That being said, you can certainly do worse than this computer. It’s not so underpowered as to be a hindrance.

Of course you can also use it for legitimate business purposes. Accounting software, word processors, email and other business applications don’t generally need a high powered machine so if you’re running a small business or home business and don’t want to spend too much on a computer, this one is fine. You want to focus on running your business, not worry about technology.

I looked around and it seems most places are selling this for around the $999 price point so this is a legitimately good deal from Canada Computers. You’re going to get it for $749. That’s $200 off of the original $949. Shipping is based on where you live. If you’re near one of the Canada Computers locations (Ontario and Quebec) you can pick it up for free.

Some of the best deals they have are on laptops. Check out the Samsung ATIV Book 5 NP540U4E-K01US Ultrabook that was $899 and is now only $499. You save $400!

The computer features a 14-inch (355.6-millimeter) HD touchscreen, Intel Core i5-3337U, 4 GB memory/500 GB HDD + 24 GB SSD, and up to 6.5 hours battery life.
