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.
We reviewed it a few weeks ago and found the Toshiba U945 to be a good budget Ultrabook. if you’re looking for a high-quality screen you’ll want to stop reading now but if you want something expandable, with a great WiFi and Hybrid hard drive setup, keyboard backlight, a great set of ports and performance that beats the cheap Sandy Bridge Ultrabooks, this one is worth looking at. It even has a removable battery! It’s $569 at Amazon.com right now. More information below.

Amazon.com have been running the $100 Gift Card Promotion on Ultrabooks for a while now but it ends on Saturday the 21st July. It’s a good week to buy though because there are some new 2nd-gen Ultrabooks in stock now. If you’ve been waiting, strike now!
I’ve spent some time going through the offers available and I’ve come up with a selection to suit different types of buyer. Take a look below… Here’s a link to all the Ultrabooks available in the promotion right now.
Intel originally set the target price for Ultrabooks at $1000. As the category developed, they seemed determined to push that target price down even further and, with the Ultrabook-laden news out of Computex earlier in the month, it would seem that they’ve certainly accomplished that. Back to school time is coming and students will be looking for powerful and lightweight laptops which have great battery life — Ultrabooks fit the bill perfectly; even more so now than the first generation thanks to reduced prices!
Edit: The offer has ended. Did anyone get one at the offer price?
US readers, I just got an alert that theUltrabook is being offered at a special price today. $729.88
