Been putting off your Christmas shopping until the last minute? You're in for a treat, then, because both Newegg and Amazon have some particularly good deals on offer today.
Let's start with Amazon, which lets you nab OCZ's 128GB Agility 4 solid-state drive for just $89.99 after a $10 mail-in rebate. Shipping is free, too. The Agility 4 has 6Gbps Serial ATA connectivity and top sequential speeds of 420MB/s and 300MB/s for reads and writes, respectively, so it's a pretty solid drive—especially for that price.
Newegg, meanwhile, lets you nab a retail-boxed Windows 8 Professional upgrade for just $29.99 after a $40 mail-in rebate. That's cheaper than the $39.99 Microsoft charges for its download-only upgrade. Here, you actually get a DVD in the box—handy, should you ever find yourself needing to reinstall Windows without an Internet connection.
Last, but certainly not least, Newegg offers MSI's Radeon HD 7850 2GB Twin Frozr graphics card for $174.99 after a $20 mail-in rebate and a $5 promo code. (All the details are on the product page.) Shipping is free here, as well. Considering 1GB versions of the 7850 typically sell for around $170, that's quite a deal.
Folks north of the border can't partake in these deals, but they've got NCIX's Last Minute Christmas Savings sale. There, they can snag Western Digital's Caviar Green 2TB hard drive for $89.99 CAD, Kingston's SSDNow V+200 120GB solid-state drive for $94.99 CAD, and Asus' GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU graphics card for $199.99 CAD after a $20 mail-in rebate, among many other items.
