UK Readers – Amazon Offering Toshiba Z830 Ultrabook for £698.80

Tags: , ,

toshiba-portege-z830-ultrabook_01After seeing that US online prices for high-end Ultrabooks have dropped 22% from the original launch prices, it’s good to see other countries showing similar price drops. This Amazon.co.uk offer on a Toshiba Satellite Z830 is particularly interesting. £698.80 is 22% below list price! [US Readers – This is a 120% consumer price that includes sales tax. Business buyers pay around £580]

I’m a Z830 user myself so I can vouch for this Ultrabook. You’ve got all the ports you need, a great SSD (ignore the reports of poor write speeds, it performs exactly when you need it) and the backlit keyboard is something you’ll never want to lose once you’ve had it. The Z830-10T on offer here has the Core i3 CPU at 1.4Ghz. (Without Turbo Boost as seen on other Ultrabooks.)

What’s the Bargain of the Week? UK Dell Streak!

Tags: , ,


I was in the UK last week. If I had seen this offer I probably would have jumped at it. A 5″ tablet with Google apps, reasonable cam, Cortex cpu and a nice build that runs Android 2.2 now.

Tesco, the biggest retailer in the UK are offering the Dell Streak at £199. Now I realise that some of you may not be too happy buying from Tesco (Hello Bristol) but this is a great deal if you’re looking to go for the ‘pub phone’ + tablet combo or, if you’re brave, the full convergence route. Tescos link below.

Unfortunately, it’s out of stock as I write this. Not surprising!

Netbooks for Laggards?

Tags: ,

This strikes me as tail-end marketing.


Simply buy an MSI WInd netbook in the next 3 weeks (in Germany) and you can send a form in to receive one of 7 possible ‘presents’ including a grill and a grill-set. Are they shifting stock or trying to sell to the laggards? If it’s the latter then we could be seeing the end of the netbook-rush sooner than we think.
