Weekend Shopper (Panasonic GF1 w/20mm for $650, quad-core desktop for $416, etc)

Time for a new edition of the "Weekend Shopper" as the number of interesting deals at the moment has increased! For on-going updates, be sure to visit and bookmark the Camera Deals blog.

Panasonic GF1 w/20mm pancake drops to $650 (DEAD)
We do not know if this is a one-day discount like the Panasonic GH1 kit (last three Saturdays). You can get it for $650 at B&H Photo. itself (not third-party sellers) is offering the Panasonic GF1 + 20mm pancake lens for $650 with free shipping, but as of Monday August 9 at 7:52pm EST it is "temporarily out of stock". You can still order it if you want to lock the price, but there is no shipment estimate... This is a drop of $75 as this camera had been dancing around the $725 price-point

Quad-core desktop for $416
The HP Pavilion p6510f (quad-core AMD Athlon II X4 630, 4GB DDR3, 750GB/7200rpm, 64-bit W7, Supermulti w/Lightscribe, wireless) is offered for $416 at Staples (online, brick-and-mortar) and can also be price-matched at other brick-and-mortar stores that carry it and offer competitor price-matching (eg OfficeMax, Office Depot). A long-winded discussion of this at the Camera Deals blog.
