Black Friday isn't here quite yet, but that doesn't mean you can't find any good bargains around—you might just need to look a little harder than usual. For instance, Newegg is currently selling a 13.3" Aspire Timeline 3810 consumer ultraportable for $550 with free shipping, a cool $150 below the the regular asking price.
This laptop is fully loaded with a dual-core Pentium SU4100 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Windows 7 Home Premium x64, and a six-cell battery that'll give you around five hours of web surfing time. It only weighs 3.5 lbs, too. We recently reviewed a very similar version of this laptop, and we thought it was nice enough to earn our TR Recommended award. At that price, you can't go wrong.
We've also been talking about cheap, Atom-based home servers and Microsoft's Windows Home Server operating system this week. As luck would have it, Newegg is currently running a promotion on HP's MediaSmart LX195 home server. The system normally sells for $400, but there's a $100-off instant rebate going on, and you can cut the price a further $75 by entering the promo code "SERVER1119" on the checkout page.
Total price: $225 with free shipping for a small-form-factor server with an Atom processor, a 640GB hard drive, Gigabit Ethernet, and four USB 2.0 ports. (The device measures roughly 4" x 8" x 8", so you should be able to tuck it away out of sight just about anywhere, and HP quotes only 3W power draw in sleep mode.) Just don't wait around too long, because the promo code is only valid until tomorrow.
