One of the great universal truths of modern gaming is that preorders suck. The term refers to the practice of ordering a title at some point before it actually ships in order to get access to a variety of minor outfit tweaks, a few starting weapons, or a few boosts to early gameplay. Today, some publishers take this practice to truly ridiculous levels; the recent game Watch Dogs has no fewer than nine preorder options, and none of them include every single perk or capability. GameStop, perhaps sensing that there's pressure building against the model, wants to turn the dial up to 11 -- and create... Read more...
Been hankering for the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1? Your wait is almost over, and you can go ahead and pre-order your very own new Tab right now at places like Office Depot, where it’s listed at $399. The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 features a dual-core processor, 1280x800 display, Android 4.0 ICS, front and rear cameras, WiFi, and several Samsung features such as the Peel Smart Remote.

The market for big tablets like this one is essentially iPad vs. the world, and despite the former’s juggernaut status,... Read more...
The wait is almost over for Nokia to launch its Lumia 900 smartphone on AT&T, and if you're super anxious to own one, you can start placing your pre-orders now. AT&T has begun accepting pre-orders for the upcoming Windows Phone device, which runs $100 with a 2-year voice agreement with qualifying monthly data plan (it's $450 off contract). Hang with us, the deal gets even better. We placed a mock order on AT&T's website and were greeted to a surprise message saying, "Your order is scheduled to be shipped on April 5, 2012." That's three full days before the Lumia officially launches.... Read more...
If you've been holding out for Lenovo's U300e Ultrabook ever since it was first announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month, today's the day you can finally order one, albeit it's a little pricier than anticipated. At CES 2012, Lenovo said the U300e would start at $799, and while that might still be true, the configuration that's currently available for pre-order starts at $959. A slightly lower end (and cheaper) configuration sporting an Intel Core i3 2367M (1.4GHz) processor, as originally announced, might still be in the cards for Lenovo, but this higher priced version...

Remember netbooks? If you haven't already been bitten by the Ultrabook bug and don't want to spend upwards of $700 on a higher end machine, next-generation netbooks built around Intel's Cedar Trail platform are finally starting to trickle out. Acer was one of the biggest players during the netbook's original run, and the company's all-new Aspire One D270 is now available for pre-order. Starting at $280, Acer's Aspire One D270 is a 10.1-inch netbook featuring an Intel Atom N2600 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 1GB of RAM, 320GB hard drive (5400 RPM), Intel GMA 3600 graphics, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, GbE...

The media coverage surrounding Apple iPhone 4 pre-order inventory levels has been almost as crazed as, well, the whole pre-order frenzy. Not unpredictable for a new Apple product release -- and particularly a new iPhone design -- it didn't take long for the Cupertino company to exhaust its supply of devices for day-of-release shipments. So does that mean you'll have time to grow a Fu-Manchu mustache before being able to get your hands on Apple's highly anticipated next-gen iPhone? That really depends on how quickly your hair grows, but lest you mix a concoction of Rogaine, Chia Pet, and Miracle... Read more...
It's June 15th. Do you know where your credit card is? It's probably hiding away far in the back of your wallet, knowing full well that you're about to put a serious dent in it. Just a week after Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO, announced that the next generation iPhone would be available for pre-sale on June 15th, the floodgates have opened, but things aren't going so smoothly. The iPhone 4 is scheduled to ship to U.S. users (along with consumers in five other countries; the rest have to wait) on June 24th. But people aren't waiting for that day to come. Both Apple and AT&T have seen their servers... Read more...
Apple helped us all get over everything we had just seen at CES by introducing an all new product in their notoriously tight product line, but few details were available at the event for consumers who were ready to buy now. We broke down the pros and cons of the iPad, which is the first major tablet PC to garner mainstream attention in the new decade, and now Apple is ready to break down some numbers themselves. According to a new press release from the California-based company, the iPad will be available in the United States starting on Saturday, April 3rd. That's only for the Wi-Fi models though;...

The hottest hoax hopping around cyber space this morning is the supposed availability of the first Fermi graphics card in pre-order form. It's being 'offered' by obscure online vendor SabrePC.com, which has the XFX GTX 480 graphics card listed for $679.99, a veritable 'bargain' compared to its original price of $699.99.Word to the wise: Don't go coughing up your credit card number, or any other personal information, for that matter. While it's not uncommon for upcoming parts to leak to the Web ahead of schedule -- including order pages like this one -- there's little to indicate this is the real... Read more...
