Deal of the week: Two hard drives and a processor


— 10:43 AM on April 25, 2008

We have three very enticing deals for you this week. Unsurprisingly, in light of the current state of storage prices, the first two are hard drives. Newegg is offering Western Digital's 640GB Caviar SE16 for only $109.99 with free shipping, and it has the 750GB Caviar SE16 model available for $134.99, also with free shipping. The former should be a little faster than the latter thanks to its higher platter density, but it's hard to argue with sub-20-cent-per-gigabyte pricing in either case (17 cents/GB for the 640GB and 18 cents/GB for the 750GB, to be exact).

Our third deal is Intel's Core 2 Duo E8400, which Newegg offers for an also-tantalizing $199.99 $189.99 with free shipping. We couldn't find better pricing anywhere on our price search engine for either this CPU or the aforementioned hard drive deals. Considering this processor was recently marked up to $250 and more because of tight availability, $200 shipped is a steal—especially when you take into account its 45nm core, 3GHz default clock speed, and overclocking potential. Check out our latest CPU review to see how the E8400 fares next to the latest chips out there.

Update: The E8400 is now listed at Newegg for $189.99 with free shipping.
