HWZ Deal Alert: 20th October 2017

Got deal, got talk! GDGT! =)

It’s been a short week, but boy are we glad it’s Friday. Here are a handful of new deals to usher in the weekend.


1. Acer Predator Helios 300

The 15.6-inch Acer Predator Helios 300 is powered by an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, 16GB of DDR4 memory, and a 256GB SSD. More importantly, the GPU is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, which can pretty much handle most games at 1080p. The chassis is characterized by an aggressive gamer-oriented design with large vents and red accents, so hopefully that's your sort of thing.

You can get it on Lazada at S$1,899 (U.P. S$2,399).


2. Samsung T3 Portable SSD

If you're looking for a a super large portable SSD, and don't need the latest from Samsung, you may want to give this a look. The Samsung T3 Portable SSD boasts transfer speeds of up to 450MB/s, so it's way faster than any hard drive.

The 2TB version is selling for S$999 on (U.P. S$1,229), and is compatible with both Mac and PC.


3. Linksys Velop (Pack of 3)

If you've got Wi-Fi dead spots in your house, you've probably already thought about a mesh Wi-Fi solution. Each Velop unit functions as an AC2200 tri-band router that broadcasts on a single 2.4GHz network and two 5GHz networks, with one dedicated to handling backhaul transmissions. 

It is selling on at S$649 (U.P. S$749) for a pack of three units.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt already lets you roam an expansive world filled with lush visuals and fantastic beasts, but the expansion packs add up to 50 hours of additional gameplay.

You can get it on Steam at S$25.19 (U.P. S$62.99), 60 per cent off its usual price.
