* Digital Storm Enix Gaming PCs, 10 Percent Off *

Digital Storm is having a "Back to School" sale this month, with
good discounts on its customizable gaming desktops--which are also
excellent for real work too, of course. Case in point: The high-end
Digital Storm Enix that we favorably reviewed in March is now 10
percent off, making the price of a starter model in that line only
$1919. Go to the Digital Storm website for details on the sale.

* HP TouchPad 16GB Wi-Fi Tablet, $420 *

HP's recently released TouchPad tablet is very similar to the Apple
iPad in design, but it runs on the WebOS operating system (read "HP
TouchPad vs. Motorola Xoom vs. iPad: How They Stack Up" for details).
The lowest price we've seen for the 16GB Wi-Fi TouchPad is about $450
online. Feeling the pressure, HP has recently taken $50 off the
TouchPad's price tag--but if you use coupon code SAVE30HP at checkout,
you'll pay only $420. Shipping is free.

* Nikon Coolpix S70 Camera, $129 *

The Nikon Coolpix S70 wowed us with its 3.5-inch OLED touch display when
it first came on the market. It sports a 5X wide-angle optical zoom lens,
12.1-megapixel sensor, and HD video capabilities. It normally costs around
$200, but Adorama is selling the brown-and-champagne model for only $129
(with free shipping).
