It's time for those after-Christmas sales, and here's a great deal on a Maxtor L01Y300 300GB hard drive from Fry's for $US44, which we couldn't find anywhere else for less than $US75. The description for the today-only deal says it's a 7200rpm retail hard drive kit with a 16MB buffer and an Ultra ATA 100 interface. What has us perplexed is the breathless promise of a "bonus 20GB FREE!" Huh? Might be a good investment of that Christmas money, but buyer beware. Sounds too good to be true. [Fry's]
