We've got a little bit of everything in today's deal post—enough to satisfy gamers, storage buffs, folks building power-hungry PCs, and Canadian laptop shoppers.
Let's start with our storage deal. Newegg currently sells OCZ's 90GB Agility 2 solid-state drive for $199 shipped, down from a quoted $249. Better yet, you can cut the price to just $169 with a mail-in rebate. We're not too fond of rebates here at TR, but this is a good deal even without it. Keep in mind the Agility 2 has a SandForce controller and three-year warranty coverage.
Next up: Borderlands, which is on sale for $7.49 until next Wednesday at the Games for Windows online store. If you haven't played this game already, here's your chance. (For more details, check out my blog post about it.)
Back to Newegg, Corsair's HX620W modular power supply is also on sale. You can grab it for $99.99 before shipping, which is apparently $70 below the regular asking price. Newegg might be embellishing the extent of the discount a tad, since our price search engine shows the same unit selling for about $140 at another e-tailer, but a hundred bucks is still very tempting for a solid, modular PSU with a five-year warranty and 80 Plus certification.
Last, but not least, Best Buy Canada is offering Acer's 13-inch Aspire AS3810TZ ultraportable notebook at a discount for $399.99. Canadian retailers are fond of gouging their customers, but this appears to be an exception to the rule—the cheapest 3810TZ variant on Amazon U.S. sells for over $600.
