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?)
The Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11S in review here is a current Ultrabook, in previous generation form. The new Haswell versions are feeding-in but this Ivy Bridge version is on offer at $699 so it makes an attractive hybrid of great quality and mobility even more interesting. Ben reviewed the Core i7 version in July but we have the Core i3 version with 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 11.6-inch version here now. It’s mostly a great experience but there are, as always, considerations. Read on to see if the Lenovo Yoga 11S fits your requirements and check out the Core i7 vs Core i3 Yoga 11S comparison.
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.
This Cyber Monday Dell is offering some time-sensitive deals. The company has a powerful XPS 13 Ultrabook available with Core i7 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB SSD for sale for $999 but only between 9pm and 12pm EST tonight!
If you missed the Black Friday deals and are still looking for an Ultrabook this week, don’t despair! Some of the Black Friday deals are still running [$489 ultrabook for example] and there’s a new set of deals for Cyber Monday to check out below which include a touchscreen ultrabook for $499.
Intel have put together a good selection of Ultrabook deals on their Facebook page today. It includes the $499 Ultrabook, some Lenovo Yoga offers, the Dell Inspiron 14z for $589, the HP Envy Touchsmart for $749, Sony Vaio deals but our favorite is the Lenovo Twist offer at Staples.
Lenovo Twist – Core i5, 500GB, Windows 8 convertible 12.5” touchscreen Ultrabook for $699 after savings. That smashes Lenovo’s online offer of $746 for a Core i3 version. Go get it at Staples online here.
We’re keeping a close eye on deals passing through right now because (for those of you not in the USA) it’s Black Friday / Cyber Monday weekend. My bet is that we’ll see the first ever $499 Ultrabook deal but it hasn’t quite happened, yet. For the time being I’ve pulled out a few offers for you to consider. Dell, Samsung, Lenovo and Toshiba are in the list. Enjoy Thanksgiving and if you spot any great deals, be sure to let us know in the comments.
Forget Intel’s prediction of $699 Ultrabooks. Forget our own prediction of $599 by the end of the year! The $599 Ivy Bridge Ultrabook is here already with the a great offer on the Vizio CT14. In Europe, prices have dipped to below €599.
It’s Vizio that have come through with the most impressive offer. The Vizio CT14-A0 1.8Ghz Ivy Bridge (Core i3) with a 128GB SSD and 1600×900 IPS screen. We can hardly believe that! It even comes with a Windows Signature (no bloatware) build of Windows 7 Home Premium. It’s at $599 at Amazon today.
