Boxing Day Sales 2013: NZ’s Best Tech, Gadget, Electronics Specials

First up – I trust all NZ Tech Podcast listeners have a great Christmas. As there will not be a new episode of the NZ Tech Podcast until CES 2014 (Las Vegas) in early January it seemed appropriate to share some of the best tech bargains announced in 2013 Boxing Day Sales both online and in retailers across New Zealand. Note some stock is very limited and you’ll need to order online or queue at the store for the best specials (stores open as early as 7.30am on Boxing Day in some cases).
