We've got a trio of deals for you this week. First, while scouting for parts for the next edition of our TR system guide, we stumbled upon a Zotac GeForce GTX 460 768MB graphics card currently on sale at Newegg for $189.99 with free shipping.
This card has Nvidia's quiet stock cooler, ships with a StarCraft II trial coupon good for seven hours of game time, and from what we understand, comes with lifetime warranty coverage if you register on the Zotac's website within 30 days of your purchase. (If you don't register, warranty coverage drops to two years.) Not bad for $10 below Nvidia's suggested retail price, specially considering how well this GPU did in our value comparisons.
Next up: HP's Pavilion dm3t, which we told you all about in the news earlier this week. In a nutshell, this 13.3" laptop has a Nehalem-derived Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage processor, a 7.5-hour battery life rating, a magensium-aluminum alloy shell, and a price tag of just $549.99. Tempting, to say the least.
Last, but not least, memory prices are on a downward trend again, and you can now get a 4GB Mushkin DDR3-1333 kit for $76.99 shipped. (Mushkin provides lifetime warranty coverage, of course.) Similar kits were selling for a little over $100 a few weeks ago, so that's a nice improvement—and a good time for an upgrade.
