Today marks the first significant discount we’ve seen on the newest 16GB iPad with Retina display. Right now you can get your hands on one for $474.99. Absurd 2048×1536 resolution display and the newest A6x chip make for a visually appealing and tactile responsive tablet experience. Elsewhere it’s retailing for the full $499 list price.
If you’re into action adventure PC games Gamefly has a great price break on the Tales of Monkey Island series. All five chapters are only $11.89 which is $23 cheaper than buying each separately for $7 a piece.
For those looking for a TV with excellent picture quality without having to pay for gimmicky 3D technology, the Panasonic TC-P60U50 is only $800 today. This is a TV CNet gave an 8 for performance and a 9 for value to when it cost closer to $1,000. They described the set as having “superb picture quality [surpassing] many TVs costing hundreds more.” Next best price is about a hundred dollars more. Great black levels and commendable color accuracy in a dimly lit environment makes this set a fantastic choice for movie lovers who’d rather see their money go entirely toward picture quality than toward say, being able to see people’s Facebook statuses on-screen.
