The excitement of Dick Smith Electronic’s game sale yesterday was, in many ways, off-set by the anger from customers who felt that they’d lined up for nothing. The Dick Smith sale was characterised by miscommunication: from when the sale was meant to begin, to what was actually available and in stock, to how much people could buy. A Dick Smith employee who worked during the sale has offered to answer a few questions for us.
Dick Smith has now confirmed plans for a “massive $7 million gaming clearance” starting April 2nd, after leaked price sheets emerged today. The retailer hasn’t confirmed if the prices are indeed correct, but so far, it hasn’t denied them either. I’m talking about PSPs ($40), Xbox 360 250GB Slim ($100), Nintendo DSis (starting from $20), Super Smash Bro. Brawl ($15), Assassin’s Creed 2 for 360 ($5), and more.
Apple has just announced that they have sold three million new iPads since its release last Friday. It’s a staggering number. Clearly, they are unstoppable at this point. The future is here to stay, people.
In 2011, manufacturers shipped 487.7 million smartphones and only 414.6 million computers — that’s desktops, laptops and tablets. Combined. We’d heard prophecy of this day and now it may have arrived.
Who pays RRP these days? Lenovo has a three-day sale on its ThinkPad laptops that ends today, offering between 10 and 30 per cent off the recommended retail price, depending on how much the laptop costs. Considering Lenovo make some of the best Windows notebooks on the market, it’s a great chance to grab a good deal on a new machine. [Lenovo via OzBargain]
It’s not surprising given we’re less than three weeks from Christmas, but JB Hi-Fi is having a mega sale tonight only. Stores are closing at 5:30pm and reopening at 6:00pm just to accommodate the massive savings. There’s a huge list of savings on offer below the jump, but worth mentioning up front is the 4GB Xbox 360 Console for a paltry $169!
JB Hi-Fi’s having one of those sale things today, starting from 9am and ending 5pm today. The news was sent out via the company’s newsletter, but it’s also painted in bright yellow and white on their website’s front page and, no doubt, advertised in-store.
