PS3 Slims selling early, selling out quickly

PS3 Slim already on sale in US

GameSpot has put together a pretty thorough roundup of the many retailers, both on and offline, that have started to sell the PS3 Slim before its vague "early September" release date. According to GameSpot, Amazon and GameStop's online stores have the PS3 listed as in-stock and ready to ship. Additionally, calls made to San Francisco GameStop and Best Buy retail stores have confirmed that some brick-and-mortar locations are selling the new system too. The questioned GameStop and Best Buy retail locations have stated that they only received roughly a dozen systems per store.

When the system was first announced at GamesCom, Sony told the general public that the system would be available in the US during the first week of September, while GameSpot was told "September 1 isn't an official street date." Whether it's overeager retail workers pushing the system out early or Sony being lax about setting a firm release date, one thing is for sure; the customer wins.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
