Sony's 9.4-inch Tablet S made it into our "PCWorld Staff Favorites of 2011" collection. Our tablet expert Melissa Perenson was impressed by the device's unique wedge-shaped design and attention to detail (read the review for details). The 32GB Android tablet sold for $600 at launch last September; Sony cut the price by $100 in January 2012. Right now, though, you can get the Sony Tablet S for $50 off at TigerDirect.com and at Amazon.com--with free shipping in both cases.
HP's recently released Envy 15 is a 15.6-inch all-purpose laptop with "great wireless and wired connectivity options, fantastic audio, a very useful analog volume dial, and a good keyboard," says our reviewer. The only problem was a less-than-terrific touchpad, and a display upgrade that went awry. HP's base model (without the display upgrade and attendant problems) usually sells for about $1350, but the company is currently offering a $250 instant rebate--and you can use coupon code NBE4836 at checkout and watch the price drop to $897, with free shipping.
If you've been considering a move to T-Mobile, it could be time to make the switch: Best Buy Mobile Solutions is offering the MyTouch 4G Slide for free with activation of a new 2-year contract. T-Mobile's MyTouch 4G earned 4.5 out of 5 stars when it launched last year, and our star-struck reviewer pronounced its camera "one of the best we've ever tested."
Canon's PowerShot G12 is a compact camera with advanced features that made it onto the top spot in our "High-End Point-and-Shoots" roundup. "The G12's combination of manual controls, fun features, useful and well-constructed hardware, and excellent performance are extraordinary," gushed our reviewer, who gave the PowerShot G12 an amazing 4.5 out of 5 stars. The camera sold for $500 when it launched last year, but 42nd St Photo is selling it for only $499, with no tax and free shipping.
The Asus Zenbook UX31E earned 4 out of 5 stars in our review and is ranked at no. 8 on our Top Ultraportable Laptops chart. It's a gorgeous laptop with a sleek, brushed-aluminum case--and it has good performance for an ultraportable. When it launched last year it listed for $1099, and prices haven't started to drop yet. Right now, though, the Microsoft Store has the Zenbook on sale for $949 (with free shipping).
Sony's NSZ-GT1 is an Internet-connected Blu-ray player that comes loaded with Google TV and the Chrome browser, plus other features. When we reviewed it last year, however, we gave it only 3 of 5 stars--partly because the player was a crazy-expensive $400 at the time. For a limited time, though, Amazon has the Sony NSZ-GT1 on sale for only $203, with free shipping. At this low price, perhaps its flaws can be overlooked?
