Christmas bargains hit the market

Everyone loves free stuff.

With the Christmas season in full swing, manufacturers and retailers are beginning to offer bundle deals to make their high-end products more attractive to put under the tree.

Panasonic leads the charge, offering a bonus Nintendo Wii games console with every VIERA Full HD plasma television sold before Christmas. With models ranging from $2549 to $11,999, the addition of a free $399 Wii might not make this a spur-of-the-moment purchase but it will provide an extra present to put under the tree for the kids if you’re already considering a new television.

Samsung’s Christmas promotions include a bonus BDP1500 Blu-ray player worth $499 when purchasing a Series 9, 8, 7, 6 or 5 LCD or plasma television. This offer extends from the low-priced Series 5 32in model ($1649 RRP) to the class-leading Series 9 55in ($6999 RRP). In addition, Samsung is offering $100 cash back on a range of home theatre systems.

If you can’t decide between a netbook and a television, Toshiba will give you both. If you buy a 37, 42 or 46in model from its XV500A LCD range, you’ll get a free NB100/C02 laptop worth $799. This is a pretty good deal but you’ll need to shell out $3739 (RRP) for the 46in model.

Camera lovers aren’t left out either. Canon’s Big Red promotion runs until the end of January, with the majority of cameras coming with a free camera bag as well as entry into a prize draw for $20,000 cash and travel.

These deals come as online retailer DealsDirect.com.au announced 2008 as its most successful year to date, with approximately 10,000 parcels shipped per day. DealsDirect.com.au co-founder Paul Greenberg said, “It goes to show that, particularly at Christmas, Australians really do love a bargain”.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
