It’s not rare to see prices cut off in notebook sales but nothing like a buy one take one where the items are for sale for half prices. This big sale from Harvey Norman seems to be a good idea, considering that the store is selling notebooks powered by AMD processors at a technically 50% discount because you can get the other one for free.
Among the good deals you’ll find in the sale is the11.6 inches HP ultraportable that sells for a low price of $698. This can be a great deal because the HP ultraportable has a higher computing power and much better specs. Another great buy is the HP Pavilion dv6-6102AX, a 15.6 inch notebook with the good graphics card of Radeon HD 6750M and nice looking specs with the 8GB of RAM, 750GB hard dsik and Blu-ray player. This HP RRP design can be availed for $1, 598 which means the original buy and the free item really just sells for $799 each.
Although the two notebook designs on sale are definitely huge cuts, the rest of the Harvey store discounted items are not that much of a good deal. To sell great devices together is not really part of a well designed sales plan. The idea when having a sale is that not all items should prove to be beneficial to the customers. Most items on sale are usually those that the retailer cannot seem to get rid of in the usual retail process, thus the need to have things on sale to attract people to buy the excess items. Similarly, in the Harvey Norman Store sales, majority of the AMD notebooks that the customer can get for a price of one are low-powered notebooks.
Among these devices are the E-350 CPUs, which are technically only a step higher than an Intel Atom netbook processor. Virtually then, the Harvey sale is a mixed bag, with the higher-end AMD and lower- end AMD both on the list of the 2 for 1 buy off.
On the other hand, if you’re only thinking in terms of notebook graphics because you will be using them for games, then these AMD machines can still compensate for the fact that their processors are good for purely computational tasks. The AMD machines have Fusion technology, enabling them to deliver really sturdy graphic performance for the prices indicated in the sale.
