The Microsoft Store is offering big discounts on Lenovo laptops and tablet hybrids, with up to $350 off selected models. Those who want to take advantage of the offer will want to act fast though: the offers are set to expire on March 19.
The best Lenovo deal in the sale is by far the Yoga 3 Pro-1370, with a $350 discount. Normally $1,099, this 13.3-inch laptop-tablet hybrid is on sale at $749.99. Powered by an Intel Core M processor, the laptop’s screen flips back all the way behind so it faces outwards, with a touchscreen turning it into a tablet in an instant. Windows 10 automatically changes the interface to make it more touch friendly. The 7.2-hour battery life means users are unlikely to get stopped by low battery when on the move.
On a tight budget? Those after a cheap laptop will want to consider the Lenovo Ideapad 100-15IBY, a laptop with a 15.6-inch, 1366×768 display. The Intel Celeron 2.16GHz processor won’t be playing any high-end games, but those looking to store a lot of photos and videos will be pleased by the 500GB hard drive, capable of housing hundreds of movies. The laptop also has a built in webcam, DVD writer, Windows 10 and super fast USB 3.0 connectivity. Normally $349, the Ideapad is on sale at $199.
The 23-inch Lenovo Ideacentre 300-23ISU desktop builds the whole computer into the monitor, meaning all a user needs to plug in is a keyboard, mouse and power to get going. The computer comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse, though, so in practice it only needs one power cable connected. The touchscreen PC is powered by an Intel Skylake processor, 8GB of memory and an Nvidia GeForce 920A graphics processor. Normally $849, the Ideacenter is on sale for $749.
Microsoft has recently made a series of price reductions on third party computers, so it’s a good idea to check the online store regularly. To celebrate Pi Day, for example, the company slashed 31.4 percent off selected Dell laptops for one day only. Redmond also recently made big reductions to other Dell accessories and monitors.
