Such a deal. AT&T and Radio Shack have announced special pricing on the Acer Aspire One, the mini 3G laptop with 8.9-inch display, Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM and a 160 GB hard drive. Here comes the deal part. Purchase before December 24 and you get it for $99.99. The catch? A two year commitment and a LaptopConnect data plan which starts at $59.99 a month. That equals out to about $1440.00 over the time period. We checked out Radio Shack’s site, but they aren’t talking online so you will have to visit the store personally.

Best Buy is selling its Insignia Blu-ray Player for very little funds. The NS-BRDVD features Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD support, has a built-in SD card slot, and upconverts standard DVDs to 1080p. After a $30.00 rebate, the player will set you back only $199.99 and the company is throwing in a coupon book good for $100.00 off select Blue-ray movies. It is available both online and in their stores. Our first impression is to go to the store and compare it with another using the same TV, but we don’t really want to spoil the inexpensive moment.

That’s right. You can get the first 15 episodes of HBO’s “In Treatment” starring Gabriel Byrne at no charge. We assume that the freebies are being used to attract a larger fan base. Whatever the reason, free is free. You need a TiVo Series 2 or 3 or Amazon’s Unbox Video Player. The Amazon download process is simple but will only work with Windows XP SP2/Vista. The show is also available through iTunes and HBO’s site.
