The Christmas shopping rush is officially over, and you know what that means: clearance sales. Newegg has a big honkin' one of those running now, which you can browse here.
Among the highlights are Asus' Zenbook UX32A, a 13.3" ultrabook that's available for a tantalizingly low $599.99 with free shipping. This puppy has a Sandy Bridge processor and runs Windows 7, so it's not quite as new or exciting as, say, the $999 Zenbook Prime UX31A. Still, 600 bucks for a slick, aluminum-clad ultrabook is a pretty sweet bargain.
Newegg also has Sapphire's Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition graphics card on sale for $194.99 after a $15 mail-in rebate and Zotac's GeForce GTX 660 graphics card for $194.99 after a $20 mail-in rebate. Shipping is free for both cards. The Radeon comes with a copy of Far Cry 3, and the GeForce includes Assassin's Creed III. Pick your poison.
Oh, and speaking of games, Amazon has some great game bundles on offer:
Readers up in Canada will probably want to check out NCIX's Boxing Week sale. There's a pretty substantial quantity of deals there—more than in the e-tailer's usual weekly sales, I believe. Among the discounted items are Seagate's 2TB Barracuda 7,200-RPM hard drive ($87.99), Crucial's 512GB m4 solid-state drive ($369.99, or just 72 cents per gig), and MSI's Radeon HD 7870 ($199.99 after a $40 mail-in rebate).
