Deal of the week: Storage, enclosures, and Zotac discounts

Storage devices are a staple of our weekly deals posts, and today is no exception. Newegg has a couple of intriguing discounts on mechanical hard drives, including Samsung’s EcoGreen Spinpoint F4 1.5TB. The drive usually costs $65, but you can knock it down to an even $50 by applying promo code EMCKBJD32. Want to double up on the EcoGreen’s storage capacity? Western Digital’s Caviar Green 3TB can be had for only $119 with promo code EMCKBJB28.

Perhaps the best way to complement a low-power hard drive is with an SSD to store one’s OS and applications. OCZ’s latest solid-state drives are on the receiving end of hefty discounts this week, with the Agility 3 120GB slashed to $160 after a $60 discount and a $30 mail-in rebate. The higher-end Vertex 3 120GB can be had for just $200 thanks to $80 in instant savings and a $20 rebate. Even without the rebates, those are some pretty attractive prices.

Lest you think this week’s post is all storage, we’ve also found a nice little deal on a hot-clocked GeForce GTX 560 from Zotac. The card is down to $200 on Newegg, making it cheaper than anything with comparable clock speeds. There’s also a $20 mail-in rebate if you’re into that sort of thing. NCIX has some love for Zotac this week, too. The H67 ITX motherboard has dropped to $120, and there’s a $30 mail-in rebate on top of that.

Need a case for all your new hardware purchases? NCIX has you covered with a couple of good options at opposite ends of the spectrum. Corsair’s excellent Obsidian Series 650D enclosure has been cut to $150, and ground shipping is free for Canadian customers. If you’re looking for a real bargain, though, it’s tough to beat the Antec Three Hundred case, which is nearly half price at just $40. There’s no need to mess around with rebates for either of those cases.

      Yikes. If people weren’t already working hard to put Android on those, they just doubled their efforts.

      Wowsers! Dead OS or not, Android or not, at that price I WOULD buy one just to have around for funsies and I am not a tablet proponent whatsoever. WebOS is supposed to be kind of decent as it is (HP is completely foolish to abandon it so soon) so even without any hacks I’d be fine with a $100 top-tier tablet.

      Yikes!!!! Thanks for the link. I just bought the 16GB version. Even though I have no interest in having a tablet but $100 for a nice built solid tablet, I could not pass that up. Thanks for the link.

      How big a drive would you actually need if you bought one now?
      We could start a fund. 🙂
