And guess what? The pickins? They're not so slim. Here's a list of some decidedly worthwhile bargains:
- Newegg has the Jawbone 2 Bluetooth headset for $79.99, plus 4 bucks or so for shipping. That's at least $20 less than I've seen it elsewhere.
- Best Buy has an Insignia Internet-connected GPS for $199.99 shipped. A built-in cellular modem lets you tap Google local search and other nifty features. One year of service is included.
- Buy.com has an HP Photosmart C4460 multifunction photo printer for $19.99 shipped. This is a two-cartridge printer with a color LCD! Update: already sold out.
- Staples has the Acer X213WBD 21.6-inch LCD monitor for $139.99 shipped. It has an HDCP-compliant DVI input and a three-year warranty.
- Newegg has the 2GB Sansa Clip MP3 player for $24.99 shipped. Way more features than the iPod shuffle, and less money.
- eCost has a Navigon 2100 GPS for $64 plus shipping (after a pair of mail-in rebates). Yeah, the rebates bite, but that's the lowest price I've seen on a text-to-speech GPS.
- eCost also has a 1TB external hard drive for $89, but again there's a mail-in rebate involved. Still, $89!
