  • [[Artnid:312785|Canon SELPHY CP780]]

    Price: $159 (Save $40)

    Dell's [[Artnid:329840|Wasabi]] might be one of the cheapest portable photo printers around, but it doesn't always produce the best quality or even handle standard 4x6in photos. If you're after a better quality image you can stick in a photo frame, Canon's SELPHY CP780 is an easy-to-use solution that offers an optional battery pack for printing family memories on the go. While $199 is already a reasonable price, Dick Smith is currently offering the printer [[xref:|for $159]].
  • Navman MY50T GPS unit

    Price: $258 (Save: $91)

    Though [[artnid:317724|Navman's MY50T]] is far from perfect, a large screen and a revamped user interface make it effortless to use. It features built-in traffic support, lane guidance and 3D junction views. You can pick it up from [[xref:|Dick Smith for just $258]], which is a saving of $91 off the regular RRP!
  • Panasonic DMR-XW350

    Price: $898 (save $201)

    Part of the (now ended) [[artnid:323486|Panasonic Christmas promotion|Buy a Panasonic TV, get free stuff]], the capable [[artnid:329417|Panasonic DMR-XW350 digital video recorder|Review: Panasonic DMR-XW350 digital video recorder]] has a 250GB internal hard drive and twin high-definition digital television tuners to ensure you never miss that crucial Two and a Half Men season finale.

  • Apple iPhone 3GS

    Price: $879

    Let's face it — if you don't already have an [[artnid:309245|iPhone]], you probably want one for Christmas. If you do, we think Vodafone has the best deal going around at the moment. You can pick up a 16GB iPhone 3GS in black or white for [[xref:|$0 on a $69 cap plan over 24 months]]. Alternatively, if you don't want to be locked into a two year contract, you can grab the iPhone 3GS outright and unlocked for $879 from the [[xref:|Apple Store]].
  • [[Artnid: 329533|Panasonic TH-P54Z1A]]

    Price: $6646.00 (save $343)

    We think Panasonic's [[Artnid:329533|TH-P54Z1A]] is [[artnid:330256|one of the best plasmas of 2009|Top 5 plasma TVs of 2009]] — it's super slim, has a great picture and incorporates a wireless Full HD 1080P video and audio receiver. One downside is that it's seriously expensive, clocking in at roughly $7000 for the 54in model. You can find a fair chunk shaved off the price if you shop around — [[xref:|JB Hi-Fi's Web price of $6646|JB Hi-Fi: Panasonic TH-P54Z1A plasma television]] is a decent saving without any haggling needed.
  • [[artnid:329557|Dyson Air Multiplier]]

    Price: $334 (Save $45)

    Dyson's "bladeless fan" is very expensive, but also incredibly cool. We had a surprising amount of fun when we got it in for testing, and, despite the price, it scored an impressive four stars. You can pick it up from [[xref:|]] and save $45 off the recommended retail price of the 25cm model.
  • [[Artnid:212726|LaCie Hard Disk Design by Neil Poulton (1TB)]]

    Price: $129 (Save $420)

    Officeworks seems to be clearing out some of its old stock at the moment, and the savings are massive. There are savings on previous generation external hard drives from [[xref:|Western Digital]] like the [[Artnid:273614|500GB My Passport for Mac]], and you can pick up [[Artnid:270268|Canon's PIXMA MP630]] multifunction printer for [[xref:|nearly half its original price]]. However, our favourite deal is on LaCie's stylish 1TB external hard drive, designed by Neil Poulton. You can grab what used to be a $549 hard drive for [[xref:|just $129]]. As with any clearance special, ring ahead to ensure stock is available at your local Officeworks store.
