That's tied with last week's mention and $132 below the best price we could find for these items purchased separately, although we saw the laptop alone for $40 less on Cyber Monday.
The laptop features an Intel Core i5-3317U 1.7GHz Ivy Bridge dual-core processor, 14" 1366x768 LED-backlit multi-touch LCD, 4GB RAM, 500GB hard drive and 24GB SSD, 802.11n wireless, webcam, 3-cell battery, and Windows 8. (It doesn't have an optical drive.) Office 365 streams full versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, and Access.
