Ultrabooks with 3rd-Gen Cores from the 2012/2013 generation are starting to fade from the tier-1 retailers’ shelves leaving some special offers with the smaller retailers and bulk discounters as they pick up unwanted stock. I’ve taken a closer look through the Amazon stores to see if I can find any good value deals and picked out a power-Ultrabook, a stylish Ultrabook and a convertible Ultrabook for you to take a closer look at.
Core i5 + SSD + FullHD + Touch on this detachable 2-in-1 is quite a deal at $779.99. Previous price was $999 and most retailers still have it at that price.
You can get it through Amazon.com right now! (Aff.) but you’ll probably end up with the Circuit City offer at $826.79 so look at the list of offers and you’ll find one from TigerDirect at $779.99. Interestingly the TigerDiret site is not available for us now (and doesn’t Circuit City have the same parent company?)
Let us know if you have success!
Looking for a Black Friday Ultrabook deal? We just tracked down another great one. You can pick up the Acer Aspire S3 for $499, and unlike most laptops these days, you can pick between Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Update: It sold for $499. The ‘waitlist’ is, after seconds, already full. let us know if you snapped one up. Stay tuned for the next offer!
If you’ve been looking at a 2-in-1 with Haswell and thinking hmmm, $1000 is a bit too much, then this offer could be for you. Coming up at Amazon is a deal on the HP Pavilion X2 13 with Y-series Haswell CPU. This is also available with a low-end AMD or Baytrail CPU but for Ultrabook-style performance and efficiency, this Haswell version is going to be way better.
With Black Friday coming up this is one of the Ultrabooks we expected to get a heavy discount. It’s already at $699 which brings you an Ivy Bridge i3, 128GB SSD and 1366×768 touchscreen in a 3 pound package. No, it’s not a Haswell version but it’s a bundle worth taking a closer look at.
Amazon is running their Black Friday deal week already and if you’re decisive, you can save big on a Samsung ATIV or Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook.
Woot.com is back with another huge offering of Ultrabook deals out ahead of Black Friday 2013. You find deals on Asus, HP, and Toshiba. Step inside to see if there’s an Ultrabook for you!
For the next few days my favorite deal site has a bevy of Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks on sale from Asus and HP, starting at $479. You’ve got until the 18th to claim one as yours!
Our favorite deal-a-day site, Woot.com, is selling the Sony Vaio T13 and T14 touchscreen Ultrabook for just $649. Jump on this deal before it’s gone!
The ASUS Vivobook X202E has been the top-selling touch notebook for a while but a recent price reduction has put it at #2 in the whole notebook category at Amazon.com
The X202E (AKA S200 in other geographies) is not quite an Ultrabook as it doesn’t have a hybrid hard drive. It also has a small battery that limits its mobility but apart from that it’s an attractive sub-notebook that defines a new category of affordable touch and highly mobile laptops. The Acer Aspire V5-122P is a similar device in the same category. It’s amazing to think that we were looking at $1200 or more for similar devices just a few years ago.
