Toshiba Direct cuts up to $320 off a selection of 50 Toshiba Satellite laptops, with prices starting at $319.99. Although not quite as good as our mention from last week, when we saw up to $350 off, it still puts many models at the lowest total price we could find. Shipping starts at $24.99, or get free shipping on orders of $499.99 or more. Deal ends December 9. A couple of best bets:
B&H Photo-Video offers the ASUS Taichi 21-DH71 Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7 1.9GHz 11.6" Dual-Screen Laptop, model no. TAICHI21-DH71, for $899.95 with free shipping. (Adorama sells it for pennies more.) That's $99 under our August mention (which also included a $150 Rakuten Shopping credit) and the lowest total price we've seen. (It's also a current low by $111.) It features an Intel Core i7-3517U 1.9GHz Ivy Bridge dual-core processor, two 11.6" 1920x1080 (1080p) LED-backlit LCDs (the outer LCD is touchscreen), 4GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, dual 5-megapixel webcams, 6-cell battery, and Windows 8 64-bit.
Update: B&H Photo-Video has increased in price; however, Adorama still offers it for $899.99 with free shipping.
Amazon offers a $200 Amazon Gift Card when you purchase select Intel-Powered 2-in-1 Laptops and Ultrabooks. With deals from $858.48 with free shipping, that's the highest value gift card offer we've seen on these items from Amazon, putting all at or near the lowest total price we could find. Some best bets, both with a $200 Amazon Gift Card:
Best Buy offers the 2.8-lb. Acer Aspire C720-2802 Intel Celeron 1.4GHz 11.6" Chromebook for $199 with free shipping. That's $35 under the lowest total price we could find for a similar model with a weaker CPU and tied as the best price we've seen for a new Acer C7 Chromebook with an SSD. It features an Intel Haswell Celeron ULT 2955U 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 11.6" 1366x768 LED-backlit LCD, 2GB RAM, 16GB SSD, 802.11n wireless, webcam, and Google Chrome OS. No optical drive is included.
