If you meander on down to the Apple store this morning, you’ll spot some nice little spec bumps to the MacBook Pro range — without any increase to the prices. For a start, you can now splash out on a faster AMD Radeon HD 6770M discrete GPU with your 15-inch or 17-inch lappie. Even better, there are some CPU improvements to be had: the 13-incher gets the option of a 2.8GHz Core i7 or a 2.4GHz Core i5 dual-core processor, instead of the previous entry-level 2.3GHz i5 (and it also gets its HDD notched up to a minimum 500GB, or max 750GB). The 15-incher now goes up to a quad-core 2.4GHz i7 — the same speedy processor that comes in the updated 17-inch variant. Oh, the cost/benefit dilemmas.

Nintendo’s miniature white monolith has sold like gangbusters for long enough that we’re wary it’ll ever get cheap, but a trusted source tells us a price cut is indeed headed our way — and that the Nintendo Wii will cost just $150 starting May 15th. The timing would make some sense, given how Nintendo’s profits have tanked for a while due to flagging hardware sales, and just last month Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime hinted that the Wii’s price might be a potential variable to change that in an interview with Gamasutra. Still, we’re not fully convinced that Nintendo would announce a price cut then, rather than, say, at the Electronics Entertainment Expo in June, and it’s not like the company to let this sort of announcement leak out, but if you find a shiny new copy of Mario Kart Wii in a $150 console bundle this time next month, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

An early prank this isn’t. Based on our sources (and the pictorial evidence above), Sprint’s fixing to whack a full Benjamin from the current $299.99 asking price on its Samsung Galaxy Tab starting on Sunday, making it one of the more affordable ways to get your hands on a 3G-enabled tablet of any kind — let alone a Froyo-based slate that’s received its fair share of compliments. Granted, the original Tab is aging at this point, and we still aren’t sure we’d be down for selling our cellular soul for two years just to get a spiffy up-front discount, but hey — at least you know the option awaits you. Oh, and if spending $429.99 sound a lot better than $199.99 in addition to 24 months of obligation, that’ll apparently also be possible.

Bad news if you’re thinking of selling your apps on their upcoming Android app store – you don’t get the final say on what your app costs. According to a report online, you’ll be able to submit your app to Amazon with a suggested sales price, but Amazon will be the one putting the price on it. And to make things worse, they will be deciding your revenue as well – meaning you can either get 70% of your proposed app price or 20% of the desired price. It hasn’t been announced how they will be choosing the prices for the apps, but hopefully Amazon will provide the guidelines so developers will know. The reason is probably so that Amazon gets to be in control of the prices. Well it definitely is more convenient for Amazon when they want to create sales and generate interested if they wanted to set the prices to whatever they want, since Amazon is known for their great deals after all. But for those of you who are selling the same app on different app stores, this might cause some trouble.

While the prices of entry-level DSLRs have dropped significantly over the years, they’re still not quite an impulse buy. And if photography doesn’t pay your bills you probably don’t already have a camera or lens budget, but saving up for new gear with this DSLR-themed bank should be easy as it helps to keep your eye on the prize. It’s apparently the same size as a real Canon EOS 350D, and the 77mm lens includes a slot on top for accepting coins or well folded paper currency. And instead of taking a hammer to it to make a withdrawal, the lens simply screws off for easy access to its contents. Just keep in mind the bank itself will set your real DSLR savings back $29.90.

All-in-one’s, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, are quite popular, though like pretty much everything else, they aren’t failing at dropping their prices down every now and then. Lenovo is no exception with their IdeaCentre B305. There are three configurations in dual, triple and quad-core flavors and the one where you stand to realize the highest savings is the flagship quad-core model. The B305 – 40311PU is usually $1,049 and is currently $100 off. Add to that a $350 stackable coupon and the machine is yours for $599. This is what you get:
AMD Athlon II X4 600e AM3 Processor ( 2.20GHz 2MB ), 4 GB PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 1333MHz, 21.5″ WXGA+ LED MultiTouch 1920×1080 monitor, 640GB 7200 HDD and Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64.

To round off the week, we take a look at the Sharp AQUOS LC-42LE620UT. This is the cute moniker of a 42-inch LED HDTV. And you can now have it for $699. Think about that for a minute. First of all, LED tvs aren’t your regular flat panels. They’re generally much thinner, have better contrast ratios and are much more energy efficient. And when they first hit the market their prices were astronomical. I’d know, I pay a small fortune each month for one and as much as I love it, this sort of deal makes me a little green with envy.
That being said, it’s not too late for you to save 36% ($401) on this panel, which features four HDMI inputs, 6.5ms response time, 120Hz refresh rate and more.
