As with our latest release roundup, the pickings are a little slimmer in the deals department than they were last week. Still, we've singled out a couple of noteworthy bargains: one in the States and another in Canada.
Stateside, Acer's Aspire One AO522 netbook is available at Amazon for $329.99 with free shipping. Astute readers might know that we reviewed this system earlier this week and bestowed our TR Recommended award upon it. Considering the AO522's dual-core processor, surprisingly decent integrated graphics, and high-resolution display, it's easy to see why.
North of the border, NCIX is currently running yet another sale, as part of which you can grab one of Zotac's GeForce GTX 460 768MB graphics cards for a cool $124.99 after a mail-in rebate. Even without the MIR, the card is on sale for $149.99—a pretty decent price for a GPU that can handle just about every game out there at a 1080p resolution.
