PS3 Slims selling early, selling out quickly

PS3 Slim already on sale in US

GameSpot has put together a pretty thorough roundup of the many retailers, both on and offline, that have started to sell the PS3 Slim before its vague "early September" release date. According to GameSpot, Amazon and GameStop's online stores have the PS3 listed as in-stock and ready to ship. Additionally, calls made to San Francisco GameStop and Best Buy retail stores have confirmed that some brick-and-mortar locations are selling the new system too. The questioned GameStop and Best Buy retail locations have stated that they only received roughly a dozen systems per store.

When the system was first announced at GamesCom, Sony told the general public that the system would be available in the US during the first week of September, while GameSpot was told "September 1 isn't an official street date." Whether it's overeager retail workers pushing the system out early or Sony being lax about setting a firm release date, one thing is for sure; the customer wins.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
