Toshiba Direct cuts up to $120 off a selection of Toshiba Satellite E-Series laptops and Ultrabooks, with prices starting at $499.99, as listed below. With free shipping, that beats last our mention from last week by up to $30 and puts each at the lowest total price we could find. Deals end December 16. The deals, with comparison to last week's prices in parenthesis:
