Should be a bargain, should also be chaos (more than usual). If it looks like much effort to find parking, keep in mind it will probably be only 5% to 10% off as the markup on computer hardware is minimal especially from a shop that is already well priced. Now if only Volvo would do the same, maybe now that they are owned by a Chinese company?




You can never have enough Volvos!

Once  Volvo man, always a Volvo man:

Yea, should be good for specials on laptops and consumer goods.  Don't expect too much for components.  However I might just pop over to see if I can get a good price on a Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse to get better than the ~$65 retail.

There are still none around after last Friday - so I would be surprised if PB had some (and if Apple see this, probably even less likely).

Also the iPad2 at $4?? + GST - could be $499,+ gst which is $573.85. Not that big a discount. They won't have too many of those either I wouldn't think.

The run-out on the KDL40CX520 looks OK. Sony must have put all those old models with them.

PB Tech's +GST pricing really gets up my nose.  These guys are aiming at the retail market not the corps at these sales.
