AT&T Does What Wal-Mart Can’t

The prospect that $99 iPhones would be offered for sale by Wal-Mart Stores Inc. had analysts and prospective buyers buzzing before Christmas, but when they were finally announced for sale last week they cost $197 – only a $2 discount.

But shoppers willing to buy a refurbished 8-gigabyte version of Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL) can now get them while supplies last from AT&T Corp. , the iPhone’s designated service provider.

The offer appeared on AT&T’s (NYSE:T) Web site, which said the black models were “previously owned devices that have been unused or lightly used and returned during the 30-day trial period.”

Need A New Laptop?

laptop-pornoIn these tough economic times, Wal-Mart is trying to do their part to help. Among the thousands of price roll-backs, there’s a Compaq laptop that seems to be a good value and it’s available on a one-day holiday sale for November 8. Here are some of the specs and while it’s probably a really basic computer, I find that most people just want a computer for email, cruising the web (job hunting perhaps, let’s just call it “job hunting” anyway), and perhaps some games. 

$298 Compaq CQ-139WM 15.4″ laptop with 2GB RAM and 160GB hard drive.**
