Most Thanksgiving Day deals can be found by drilling-down from the home pages of your favorite retailers. And, since we’re (still) between technology news sites, we decided to pick one non-mobile deal for Mac, and one non-mobile deal for PC. And, here they are.
For Mac users, VMWare is offering VMWare Fusion 3 for Mac for around $10 after rebate. Order online, and then use coupon code BLACKFRIDAY2010. Finally, complete the $30 online rebate form. Customer service for the rebate has stated that online orders do indeed qualify for the rebate.
For PC users, future-proof your desktop by adding USB 3.0 to it… for nothing. TigerDirect is selling a USB 3.0 upgrade card for $20, and a $20 mail-in rebate brings the cost down to $0, though there is $2 shipping and handling. Rebate has a limit of two per household, so you can maximize the flat-rate shipping cost by ordering two. USB 3.0 provides up to 5 Gbps, five times the speed of Gigabit Ethernet, and over ten times the maximum speed of USB 2.0.
Stay tuned, mobile deals are next, and we have at least a few good ones…
