Where i live(AU) pc hardware is quite a bit more coin compared to other locales. i built a new machine around a 780 GTX. Paid a dear price for the 780 and truly wanted the TITAN. seeing the new amd 290X release hit me with buyers regrets. Super card as fast or faster than TITAN and a goooooood round cheaper.
Both Asus and Google have announced a price protection program for those that bought a Nexus 7 within a specific time frame, before the price drop. First up is Asus. They’re offering UK customers that bought the 16GB Nexus 7 directly from either Google or Asus a ₤25 refund for those who bought one before October 29th.
The Nexus 6 was going for $299 on contract, but in quick fashion, they have dropped the price down to $249. They even dropped the off contract price down by the same amount, bringing it to $648.
Even better news….those that bought the device from 11/14 to 11/18 will get a refund as a credit on their bill.
Microsoft has cut the price of its Surface 2 tablet hybrid by $100, leaving the consumer-facing device with a price tag as low as $349. That price, however, doesn’t include a keyboard attachment that is generally viewed as mandatory to use any Surface tablet. Other Surface 2 models, including the LTE-powered, higher-storage SKU have also received price reductions.
Earlier today, T-Mobile started selling the Nexus 9 with LTE. The carrier is charging customers $24.99 per month for two years with the full retail price being $599. Prospective buyers that are not with T-Mobile have another option to purchase the LTE variant of the Nexus 9. Directly through Google Play, the Nexus 9 with LTE is available for the same $599 full retail price.
With HP’s TouchPad tablet enjoying price cuts from HP’s online site, Staples.com and Woot.com over the last few days, and some even claiming to have combined discounts, has the long anticipated tablet price war now started?
With Google’s The Playground is Open event only days away, we have already seen the Google Play Store “de-list” the 8GB version of the Google Nexus 7 tablet. A 32GB Nexus 7 device is in the works along with a 3G-enabled variant, which apparently has prompted some retailers in the UK to guess these devices will be announced next Monday.
