Christmas bargains hit the market

Everyone loves free stuff.

With the Christmas season in full swing, manufacturers and retailers are beginning to offer bundle deals to make their high-end products more attractive to put under the tree.

Panasonic leads the charge, offering a bonus Nintendo Wii games console with every VIERA Full HD plasma television sold before Christmas. With models ranging from $2549 to $11,999, the addition of a free $399 Wii might not make this a spur-of-the-moment purchase but it will provide an extra present to put under the tree for the kids if you’re already considering a new television.

Samsung’s Christmas promotions include a bonus BDP1500 Blu-ray player worth $499 when purchasing a Series 9, 8, 7, 6 or 5 LCD or plasma television. This offer extends from the low-priced Series 5 32in model ($1649 RRP) to the class-leading Series 9 55in ($6999 RRP). In addition, Samsung is offering $100 cash back on a range of home theatre systems.

If you can’t decide between a netbook and a television, Toshiba will give you both. If you buy a 37, 42 or 46in model from its XV500A LCD range, you’ll get a free NB100/C02 laptop worth $799. This is a pretty good deal but you’ll need to shell out $3739 (RRP) for the 46in model.

Camera lovers aren’t left out either. Canon’s Big Red promotion runs until the end of January, with the majority of cameras coming with a free camera bag as well as entry into a prize draw for $20,000 cash and travel.

These deals come as online retailer DealsDirect.com.au announced 2008 as its most successful year to date, with approximately 10,000 parcels shipped per day. DealsDirect.com.au co-founder Paul Greenberg said, “It goes to show that, particularly at Christmas, Australians really do love a bargain”.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
