DEAL: Epson Workforce 3640 for $99, 500 Sheets

imageThis is my favorite ink-jet printer, and it’s on sale at Best Buy (and other places as well) for only $99.99.  It prints very fast, also scans, copies and faxes.  As a bonus, this printer hold a whole ream of paper, 500 sheets.  All the stores here in Austin (except for Cedar Park) have it in stock.  If you need a new printer, here you go.  And of course, be sure to buy some extra ink.

If you prefer having boxes delivered to your door, Amazon has it on sale for the same price.

DEAL! Lenovo Laptop for $359 With no Crapware!

Image result for microsoft storeNeed a laptop for someone going to school in the Fall?  Looking for an inexpensive yet powerful laptop that won’t run out of gas in 2 years?

Well, much to my surprise, the Microsoft Store has the Lenovo G50 on sale for only $359.  The G series is Lenovo’s entry level line, but they are still good computers (I would take this over a mid-line HP, Toshiba or Acer any day.)  Many of you are still not familiar with the Lenovo name.  Would you recognize it if I said “IBM PC”?  Lenovo bought the IBM PC (including laptop) division several years ago, and they still make high quality computers.  This one has an Intel Core i5 processor with 6GB of memory and a 500GB hard drove, webcam, high-speed wireless, bluetooth and a DVD burner that many new laptops no longer include.  And, it weighs less than 5 lbs.

Coming from the Microsoft Store, it’s part of their “signature series”, which means it is a pretty pure Windows installation without all the garbage the manufactures add.  That means it’s easier to get it set up to your liking or if you have me set it up for you, it costs you less because I don’t have to spend time uninstalling whatever crap was added.

There is a Microsoft Store here in Austin in The Domain.  If you’re not it Austin, their web site will tell you where the nearest store is.  Of course, you can always order it online and have it sent to your doorstep.

Here’s the link to their webpage:

Hot Deal on Hot Performance Upgrade

imageNewegg has the Crucial 256GB SSD (Solid State Drive) for $119 with currently a $10 discount that makes it only $109.

This is probably the FASTEST of the SSD’s out there and will make a HUGE difference in the performance of your computer.  It comes with software so you can copy your existing hard drive to the new one (you might need some additional hardware, or just give me a call.)

I wrote about SSD’s back in August here, so if you’re not sure what I’m talking about, you can read up there.  I have SSD’s in ALL my computers and have updated many clients with them with amazing results.  It’s like a turbo-charger for your car.

So before you go out and spend a bunch of money on a new computer, consider upgrading the hard drive.  Here’s the link to the drive on Newegg:

DEAL, DEAL, DEAL on a 27” Monitor–$209!!!

imageAnd this isn’t some no-name monitor, this is an Acer 27” that is LED backlit and has VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs.  It has a full HD resolution of 1920×1080, is very thin (it only weighs 11 lbs.) and has built-in speakers.

I really wish I could come up with a reason for me to justify replacing my two 25” monitors with this, but alas, I can’t.  But if you’re using a 23” or smaller monitor, you’ll be amazed at the difference.  A year ago this monitor would have been an easy $350.

If you have a laptop and would like a large monitor to work with when you’re home – this is the one.  If you’re in the market for a new monitor – buy this one at NewEgg:

If you’re still running Windows XP (you’ve only got a month left), here’s one of your best chances to move to a safe operating system.  Here’s the link to Lenovo’s site:
