System76 adds more price reductions while adding more options

System76 has sent me an email earlier today informing me of some new details happening over at System76, and this time around they are still saving you money despite the System76 fall offer ending.
These benefits apply to their laptops, which are currently in 3 flavors. Those are the Lemur Ultra, Pangolin Performance, and Gazelle Professional. Their prices have been lowered. These are shown below.

  • Lemur Ultra: was $689 now $659
  • Pangolin Performance: Was $699 now only $669
  • Gazelle Professional: Was $899 now $875
System76 is also now offering 1 TB drives on all laptops. The largest size you can get of just pure drive (no hybrids, just good 'ol platters) is 750 GB last time I checked. The fall offer is now gone, so you can no longer get the 750 GB free upgrade deal. The 1 TB drive is $79 USD for those who are wondering.

The CPU's were also upgraded. Direct info from the email below. I didn't really get the info clear enough to interpret in my own words. Waiting for clarifications when it comes.
Last week, we were offering Intel CORE i7 3610QM 2.3 GHz 6MB and now it is the 3rd Generation Intel Core i7-3630QM Processor ( 2.40GHz 6MB L3 Cache - 4 Cores plus Hyperthreading )
3rd Generation Intel Core i7-3740QM Processor ( 2.70GHz 6MB L3 Cache - 4 Cores plus Hyperthreading ) ( + $175.00 ) updated from the Intel i7 3720QM at 2.6 GHZ
Hope you all enjoyed this update.
