SLIDESHOW

The Best Tech Deals of the Week

We'll show you where to get a big-screen TV for less dough, an inexpensive netbook, and a laser printer that just might earn you the envy of all your neighbors.

Samsung Touch of Color 46-Inch LCD HDTV

Most of the gizmos and gadgets we find for these slide shows need a pithy introduction, but humongous flat-panel HDTVs just kind of sell themselves. Amazon.com is offering the Samsung Touch of Color 46-inch LCD HDTV for the "in-store" price of $1599. That's $500 off. Don't worry--the extra swagger in your stride that comes from knowing you have the biggest, baddest TV on the block comes free of charge.

Lenovo IdeaPad S10e

If you're in the market for a new netbook with plenty of storage space, get the jump on back-to-school sales with the Lenovo IdeaPad S10e (the "education-oriented" version of the S10, which comes with a one-tenth-inch smaller screen and Lenovo QuickStart). This model will cost you only $298 after shipping, versus its $330 list price.

Toshiba 500GB Portable Hard Drive

They laughed when you tried to carry a printout of each page on Wikipedia, but you can have the last laugh with the Toshiba 500GB USB 2.0 portable hard drive, which is big enough to let you carry approximately 15 copies of the full Wikipedia mirror and still have a little space left over. In this case, the last laugh will cost you $95 plus shipping. At its original release, the hard drive cost $180, and the special price here is still a substantial discount from current pricing. (Printing out Wikipedia would probably cost you a lot more.) Toshiba's portable hard drives are lightweight and compact, with a resilient chassis that can take some inadvertent impacts.

Kensington SlimBlade Media Mouse

These days, $25 can buy you a nice lunch, a boring iPod case, or maybe a third of a big car's tank of gas. It can also buy you a new mouse--something you'd probably get a lot more mileage out of than any of the alternatives above. The Kensington SlimBlade Media Mouse is going for only $25 including shipping. Check it out if you're looking to upgrade your desktop with a wireless, media-controlling mouse for a discount that's more than 50 percent off the original price.

HP LaserJet P2055dn

Propane grills. Classic cars. Outdoor hot tubs. As much as you hate to admit it, in reality, it's your neighbor's brand new laser printer that you just can't afford to keep up with. Now all the guys will be having their printing parties next door, and you'll be stuck with your lonely old inkjet. Save yourself from a fate worse than social humiliation by picking up the refurbished HP LaserJet P2055dn for only $220 shipped--about $300 less than the list price. We reviewed a similar model, the P2055x; the main difference is that the P2055x has a larger print tray.
