Acer G7 Series 24” LCD Monitor – $119.99 (Save $100)


If you’re thinking of buying the ABS Dreadnought PC listed above, I highly recommend you also pick up this monitor by Acer. Why? Because it’s a huge widescreen LCD monitor with an impressive 5-egg review. It’s also 45% off until December 15th so get one at this low price while you can.

MSI GT Series Dominator Gaming Laptop with FREE 50” HDTV – $2,549.00


This laptop is expensive for one simple reason: it’s probably better than your desktop. Powered by a 2.5GHz i7 processor, 24GB of RAM, and two hard drives; MSI forged this gaming laptop to perform. It’s insanely powerful and will help you conquer any game you throw at it. And then you can laugh at your opponent when you watch the replay on the free 50” HDTV we’re throwing in.

Intel 120GB Internal SSD – $74.99 (Save $75)


No computer in 2015 should be without an SSD. They’re smaller, faster, and better than mechanical hard drives and will also outlast any of them.
