PlayStation 3 To Undergo $100 Price Cut In August?

Labels: , ,

It's been a while since we heard about a PS3 price cut, and since Sony never announced anything at E3 we have to go by rumours. The latest one? Sony is looking to give the PlayStation 3 a $100 price cut in mid-August. This would be just in time to ruin your kids school year and is also perfect for Madden which hits the shelves on August 18. We'll see what happens come mid-August because I hope the PS3 Slim is brewing by then.

HP Cuts Prices of the dv2 and dv3, Also Get Artsy dv6 Option

Labels: , , , , , , ,

HP just cut the prices of two of their laptops. First is the HP dv2z, which is the 12.1-inch AMD Neo laptop and it is now priced at $599 USD. The other laptop that got a price cut is the dv3t - which utilizes the Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 CPU - and it is now available for $649 USD.

Now lets talk about the laptop that you see above. HP's dv6 now has two new options, the dv6z Artist Edition 2 (above) is now available for $949 USD and the dv6t - priced at $649 USD - is the exact same thing, just without the artsy design. I'm not liking the design, but I'm sure there's someone out there that would love to dish out an extra $300 just to be unique.
