MSI Wind Netbook
Apple may not sell a netbook (yet), but the MSI Wind could hold you over until it does. Buy.com has the 10.2-inch MSI Wind netbook with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor, a 160GB hard drive, 1GB memory, and Windows XP Home preinstalled for $323 with free shipping. While we didn't like some of the design elements, we did acknowledge that the Wind is one of the easier netbooks to set up as a do-it-yourself "Hackintosh."
15.4-Inch MacBook Pro (Refurbished)
If you're looking for the real deal from Apple, the Apple Store offers a loaded, refurbished 15-inch MacBook Pro with a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2GB of memory for $1300. That's $400 less than the retail price for a new version of the latest MacBook Pro. Not bad, considering that our reviewer liked the just-glossy-enough display and the slick unibody chassis of the MacBook Pro. Apple's refurbished products come with the company's standard one-year limited warranty.
Sony Ericsson W350 Prepaid Phone (Refurbished)
Sony HDR-XR500V HD Camcorder
Videographers on the go will appreciate Sony's HDR-XR500V camcorder, which Abe's of Maine currently sells for $935 with free shipping (using coupon code DNEWS15). It has a 120GB hard drive, records at full 1080p HD resolution, and includes built-in GPS support, which lets you sort your footage by location, automatically adjust time and date stamps for the local time zone, and more.
Nikon Coolpix P4 (Refurbished)
Newegg.com is selling the 8.1-megapixel Nikon Coolpix P4, refurbished, for only $90 with free shipping--a good deal if you're in the market for an inexpensive camera and you don't mind missing out on a few megapixels. When we reviewed the Coolpix P4, we particularly liked its image-stabilization features, and we found the image quality decent.
