TOSHIBA UK OFFERS 66% OFF NOTEBOOKS IF ENGLAND WINS CUP
Depending upon how you look at it, Toshiba’s U.K. notebook division is either patriotic, or betting against the home team.
In a promotion the firm is running both online as well as in several major U.K. newspapers, Toshiba and Intel are offering 66 percent rebates on selected Intel Core Duo notebooks — but only if England wins the World Cup of soccer, which begins June 9 in Germany.
U.S. customers have yet to be offered the same discounts, however, leaving the small fraction of U.S. notebook buyers who follow soccer potentially out in the cold. Toshiba representatives in the U.S. said Wednesday that executives were in training sessions, and were unavailable to answer questions.http://www.pcmag.com
