Deal of the week: Thumb drives, memory, and more

The summer’s over, the back-to-school rush is pretty much through, but the deals are still coming. Most notably, we see that Newegg is running a summer’s end savings promotion, as part of which it’s offering coupon codes for notebook memory, Rosewill and Corsair PSUs, Office software, Asus displays, Z68 motherboards, and other products.

The combinations are many, but here’s a nice example: an 8GB kit of Mushkin DDR3-1066 notebook memory for $42.99 with free shipping. Enter the coupon code EMCKAKA22 on the checkout page, and you can have that kit for a cool $38.69 shipped. Mushkin covers the memory with a lifetime warranty and rates it for operation at 1.5V with 7-7-7-20 timings.

We see that the USB 3.0 version of Corsair’s 8GB Flash Voyager thumb drive is now available—and there’s a mail-in rebate tied to it, to boot. The drive is selling for $16.99 shipped right now, and the rebate takes it down to just $9.99.

Over in the great, not-so-white north, NCIX is running a "savings safari" promotion. As always, the promotion covers a ton of items of all shapes and sizes. Juicier offerings include an 8GB kit of Mushkin DDR3-1333 desktop RAM selling for $39.99 CAD, or $34.99 after a mail-in rebate. OCZ’s 120GB Solid 3 solid-state drive is on sale for $139.99 CAD, too, or $119.99 after a rebate.

    When building new (or buying a new notebook), no one can ever have too much RAM. Nobody.

      It’s dumb to pay for something you aren’t going to use, even if it is only an extra 40 bucks. Better to spend that $40 on something that will actually improve performance, or just consider yourself $40 richer.

      Another way you could get too much RAM is buying 5 sticks for a system with 4 slots. 🙂

        And every DIMM does draw power, which can be a consideration for notebooks. Not a lot in absolute terms or especially relative to the other components, but if you’re trying to maximize your unplugged run time (and you already have enough RAM to ensure you’re not overcommitting to the pagefile in normal usage)…

    Whoa, 8gb of ram for 40$ thats insane! 4gb is the new 8gb !! but of course 90% of us would not use that much.

      It’s the other way around. 8GB is the new 4GB.

      • just brew it!

      Speak for yourself. I’ve got 8 GB right now, and with prices so low I’m thinking of bumping it to 16!

        Agreed. 90% of the rest of the world might not (yet) use that much, but a lot of us here at TR would (and do).

        Just yesterday UPS delivered 16GB for my new build. When it costs less than a Benjamin, how could I resist?
