It is undoubtedly heavily influenced by Woot, with its "One day, one deal" mantra, and is equally as popular with both sites running forums that run amok with crazed non-product postings, promoting fun, friendship and contests.
The community is definitely as much a part of Zazz as is the product and it's easy to see why Zazz has remained strong while other Woot-derivatives in Australia have fallen by the wayside.
Today's Zazz - for Thursday 26th March - is a Dell Optiplex desktop computer. If you read this after Thursday then you've missed it; Zazz might well be selling a poker chip travel set or a Big Brother bean bag instead.
Specifically, the computer is a Dell Optiplex GX520 and while not new is refurbished and is still supported on Dell's web site. It runs a Pentium 4 3.0GHz processor, contains 1GB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive, a DVD reader/CD writer combo, six USB ports, plus integrated audio, video and ethernet.
What is most impressive is that Zazz are selling this machine with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed. Someone else will have gone to the effort of loading it on and ensuring all drivers work. You will receive a fully-working Ubuntu system in the mail just as if you'd gone with that other, brand-name, operating system!
Best of all, the whole price - including freight - is less than $200. Specifically, $179.70 and they take PayPal as well as credit card payments. Here's a chance to use your lazy cash from e-Bay sales.
You may buy additional computers, up to three, with the price reducing $9.95 (including freight) for the second and third machines.
You need to supply your own monitor, keyboard and mouse - but to get a fully working and relatively modern Ubuntu Linux desktop computer sent direct for less than $200 is undoubtedly a great deal.
So, no excuse; if you've wanted to check out Linux or if you've considered setting up your own home server or media centre, or you want a second computer for the children or student or partner in your life get to it. You've only got today.
