  • ASUS UL50VT notebook

    Price: $1299 (Save: $199)

    [[xref:|ASUS|Web site: ASUS]] is offering its UL50VT notebook for $1299 with a free upgrade to a three-year global warranty. ASUS says the warranty is worth $199, and it's a back-to-school special that's only available if you have a student ID. We think it's a sweet deal for a laptop that will be clocking up a lot of kilometres between the home and campus. The laptop itself is sensational; you get an Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 15.6in screen and a 500GB hard drive. It even comes with a 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 210M graphics adapter. It looks very stylish and has plenty of useful ports, including HDMI. While we haven't reviewed this particular model, [[xref:|check out some of the other ASUS notebooks we've seen recently]] (select ASUS from the 'brand' drop-down list).
  • Christmas may be over, but that doesn't mean the savings are. With students shortly heading back to school, there are plenty of bargains to be found. We round up some of the best of the week, including dirt cheap mobile broadband, Google's first smartphone and a great ASUS notebook!
