Retailers hardly do any "good deals" on relatively new Apple products like the MBP w/ RD because the margins are very slim for Apple products.

sonyxperiageek: Oh and it looks like you can buy a 1-year Norton protection (for 1 device) for $20, then get a $20 cashback, effectively rendering it free! - http://salefinder.co.nz/5528/computers/software/norton-360-multidevice/548325/


Careful with those sorts of things, because when something is offered for free, they often require you to enter your credit card, and they automatically renew at the end of the free period, and at full price.


Not that I'm buying one, but yeah you're probably right. :)

PottsyNZ: Considered a Surface but sounds like Microsoft are dumping Windows RT next year? The already small pool of apps will no doubt dry up pretty fast.
Might be tempted if someone can confirm it's easy enough to get the Netflix app in NZ :)


Picked mine up from JB for $278 at the start of the month, not regretting it at all. Apps likely won't dry up since the same modern apps run on Win 8 x86/64. In fact Viber just released their modern app. Absolutely beats the Galaxy Tab 10.1 hands down.

thelimoman: Oooh! $300 original 32GB Surface RT at Harvey Norman. Good deal for those who missed out a month or two ago. Kinda tempted but I need some other stuff more urgently!

Tempted to pick up a Lumia 520 just to familiarise with Windows phone - how carrier-locked is the Vodafone model really?

I managed to get 10% off on the new 15" 3 weeks ago at Noel Leeming. I was expecting the sales guy to say no but glad I asked.
Also JB were advertising 10% off all macbooks a week later so maybe ask them?

Noel wouldn't price match mightyape on gta5 but then I found it for 80 at the warehouse so went there to get it.

There were probably about 25 ps3 at wairau noels. After I took mine to the car and came back in there were still 6 or so. Was thinking of going to a different cashier and getting another but had better things to spend money on.
