Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Toys

The much-anticipated Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens film is scheduled to be released, by Walt Disney Pictures, on December 18, 2015. It is the continuing Star Wars saga where “Return of the Jedi” left off which was released back in 1983.

A Star Wars prequel trilogy was released during the year 1999 and 2005. Ever since the first Star Wars film (A New Hope) was released way back in 1977, it became a world-wide phenomenon of sorts and the fan base continued to grow.

If you are a huge fan of the Star Wars film series franchise, you are a collector of sorts. And a contributor to the Guinness World Record that the Star Wars franchise holds for the Most Successful Film Merchandising Franchise.

With the new Star Wars movie scheduled to be released in December 2015, I won’t be surprised if Star Wars toys and other merchandise will be among the top sold toys in 2015. With Halloween just around the corner, Star Wars costumes will be flying off the shelves as well. And given the enormous number of fans, it won’t surprise me if many of the Star Wars merchandise will go out of stock.

Star Wars Action Figures

On Force Friday (September 4, 2015), Disney launched its official Star Wars merchandise. This is a good time to buy Star Wars toys and costumes. In fact, For a limited time and while supplies last, Amazon is offering some discounts on Star Wars toys. Until September 12, 2015 buy $50 of select Star Wars Toys, get $10 off.

Discount Laptops for Back-to-School 2013

As summer starts to wind down, the reality of back-to-school, in September 2013, begins to set in. If you’re a parent or a student looking for back-to-school deals on laptops, Amazon has a variety of laptops on sale to suit your computing needs for school.

When buying laptops, there are many considerations to take into account and I will walk you through some of the key features that you need to look for when choosing a laptop for school. When buying laptops, here are some of the main specifications you should be looking for:

Screen Size: you will get laptops with screens as small as 13.3 inches and as large as 17 inches. It depends what you will be using it for. Obviously, the smaller screen sized laptops are much more portable. However, if you’re one who uses their laptop to watch TV and movies, you may want to go for a larger sized one.

Operating System: most newer laptops now, come with Windows 8, but you do have the some that still ship with Windows 7. It’s best to go with a Windows 8 laptops because some of the laptops can be used as tablets and Windows 8 operating system offers touch-screen capability.

Processor: Windows laptops comes with Intel or AMD processors, both are good companies, but I personally prefer Intel. The other aspect is to check is what type of processors are used in the laptop. The ones you see commonly are Intel Core i3, i5 and i7. The price of the laptop will vary depending on the type of processor. If possible and if you can afford it, go for the i5 or i7 because it has faster processing speed.

Hard Drive: storage space on laptop is measured in GB (gigabytes). Most laptops nowadays come with hard drive capacities starting with 500 GB and up. The more the hard drive space, the costlier the laptop. If you’re one who stores a lot of multimedia files, like pictures and videos, on your laptop, you will need one with more storage space.

RAM: or Random Access Memory is the temporary memory that the computer uses to run applications that are running on your laptop like your internet browser, MS Office applications, etc. Most laptops today come with a minimum of 4GB and upwards. The more RAM means applications can run faster and this in general helps when multitasking and having multiple applications open simultaneously. The more RAM on a laptop, the more it will cost. Generally, 4 GB to 6 GB will suffice for most regular users.

Others Features: you may want to look for additional features on a laptop like the number of USB ports, its battery life, whether the laptop comes with a DVD drive, etc. These will depend on what you use your laptop for.

Amazon has a wide range of laptops from reputable companies ASUS, HP, Toshiba, Lenovo, Acer, and Dell, . On many of the laptops, you can save up to $200.
