One would expect slim pickings in the wake of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but there are still some nice deals to be found out there—provided you know where to look.
For instance, Newegg has two IPS monitors on sale for less than $200. The first is LG'S IPS234V-PN, a 23" 1080p display that's down to $129.99 after a $10-off promo code (EMCWVXR44). Judging by the four-star average rating out of 51 customer reviews, this looks like a quality offering for the money.
Need something a little bigger? Then check out Acer's S275HL bmii, which is on sale for $189.99, also after a $10-off promo code (HVEHDENH27). The S275HL bmii stretches out the same 1080p resolution across a 27" panel. The resulting pixel density may not match that of those nifty Korean monitors, but hey, you're paying way less here.
And now for something much, much smaller: Newegg has the 2012 version of Google's Nexus 7 tablet down to an even $159. That's with a 7", 1280x800 display, a Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage capacity. The device apparently comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean pre-installed, but Google rolled out Android 4.4 Kit Kat for both 2012 and 2013 versions of the Nexus 7 last month, so you should be able to upgrade.
North of the border, it's always worth checking out NCIX's latest sale. This time, it's called the Sweet Holiday Deals sale, and items of note include a 3TB 7,200-RPM Toshiba hard drive for $109.99, a 120GB Kingston SSD for $89.99, and a 430W Corsair power supply for $29.99 after a $20 mail-in rebate.
