If you missed yesterday’s $80 Chromebook, fear not! Woot Computers comes to the rescue with another one, this one is actually $79, it is the refurbished Dell Chromebook 11-3120 Notebook with the Intel N2840 2.16GHz Dual-Core processor, 4GB DDR3 [important these days], 16GB eMMC of on-board storage, 802.11ac, Bluetooth, etc. It comes with a 90-day Woot warranty. Limit up to ten per customer. Of interest if there’s rough usage for the laptop as it is a MIL-STD model.

IMPORTANT: now that Chromebooks have been around for quite a few years, a new twist/risk is raising it’s semi-ugly head. Google does not offer automated OS updates for platforms that are over 6.5 years old. Note that the clock starts ticking on the platform, not the individual laptop. So the clock for this device began ticking when the first Intel N2840 Chromebook came out. This particular model will get auto-updates until June 2020. Details at 11 or more conveniently at the Google Support page for ChromeOS devices πŸ™‚

Ricoh GR-D III: In-Stock in the EU, US Coming Soon [updated]

We have another in-stock alert, this time on the other side of the pond. The new Ricoh GR-D III big sensor prime is now in-stock for 899 euro at Amazon Germany, sold and shipped by themselves…

UPDATE 3/24/19 at 1:17am ET: in the US, Amazon itself is taking orders for its starting price of $899 in the all-encompassing “temporarily out of stock” status, while Adorama and B&H Photo are marked as “Coming Soon”…

UPDATED 3/22/19 at 1am ET: In the US, the camera is now in-stock and ready to ship for its starting price of $900 at Adorama with free expedited shipping … Amazon itself went from a March 22nd estimate to “currently unavailable”… B&H Photo has a March 25 release estimate… As it is often the case with higher-demand lower-availability cameras, there’s often a bit of chaos during the initial release, so dates and estimates may change early and often. A silver lining that it mayhaps is a great choice since others are jumping in early as well πŸ™‚ ..

Kodak AZ652 superzoom (65X OIS, RAW) for $300

Adorama does not have conventional daily deals but on occasion they have “snapshot deals” which are limited time offers… One such offer running right now is the new condition Kodak AZ652 superzoom going for $300 with free US shipping… This has a 65x optical zoom with OIS (24-1560mm EQ, f2.9-6.7), 5fps, RAW but on a 1/2.3″ backlit CMOS, flip-out LCD, 1cm macro, EVF, Wifi, 400 CIPA, 21oz body-only, etc.

PS: for our younger viewers, Kodak is not a company created by the famous rapper to sell merchandise. It is an older company, based in upper New York state. The name though for camera marketing purposes is owned by one of the brand-remilking companies, not by the OG Kodak, and still not by the rapper Kodak πŸ˜‰
