If you're more interested in hardware upgrades, Amazon has an 8GB kit of DDR3-1333 SO-DIMMs from Crucial on sale for $34.99 shipped—definitely a nice pick-me-up for any recent notebook.
Also, the latest product to earn our Editor's Choice award, Samsung's 830 Series 256GB SSD, is available at Newegg for $334.99 shipped if you enter the coupon code "EMCNHJC34" on the checkout page.

Our Canadian friends may not get to sleep in on Monday, but they can partake in NCIX's Fantastic February Savings Event, which is running until the 22nd. Bargains include Kingston's SSDNow V200 128GB solid-state drive, which is available for a scant $119.98 (albeit in limited quantities, from what I understand).
