The Lenovo ThinkPad Helix is currently on special, a convertible ultrabook with a rather special screen.  Many prospective buyers are unhappy with the current standard resolution on most laptops but this little 11.6" touchscreen is fully 1920 x 1080 so it looks fine as as tablet and better than most laptops of this size or larger.  Inside is a Core i5-3337U, 4GB DDR3-1333 and a 128GB SSD along with WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity.

Alienware 14 "Haswell" Core i7 Gaming Laptop @ $1080

The AlienWare 14 model on sale today has an Intel i7-4700MQ, a 1GB GT 750M, 8GB of DDR3-1600 and a 750GB 3Gbps HDD.  It ships with Win7 Home Premium which could be upgraded if you wish as well as a 1366 x 768 display which you do not seem to be able to upgrade, though as a desktop replacement with an external display this may not be a major issue for many.  At $1080 it is not that expensive for a gaming laptop, if you find yourself so inclined.

Microsoft recently posted a new offer that seeks to sweeten the pot for customers interested in trying out the company’s Office 365 Home Premium subscription. Under the new promotional offer, users that purchase an annual Office 365 subscriptions will also receive a year of Xbox Live Gold for free. Not a bad deal, at all considering Office 365 Home Premium is $100 a year and Xbox Live Gold is $60 by itself.

The offer is eligible for customers in the United States who purchase a yearly subscription to Office 365 Home Premium. The promo runs from July 18, 2013 to September 28, 2013. That eligible version of Office 365 Home Premium normally includes a basic suite of Office applications for up to five PCs and five mobile devices, 20GB of additional SkyDrive storage, 60 Skype minutes (per month), and a web version of Office.

Office applications include:

  • Word 2013
  • Excel 2013
  • PowerPoint 2013
  • Outlook 2013
  • OneNote 2013
  • Access 2013
  • Publisher 2013

With the promo, users can get a year of XBL Gold as well. Once Office 365 has been purchased, users will need to activate the subscription and then log into Office.com/xbox (before October 31, 2013) with the same Microsoft account that purchased the subscription to get a code that can be redeemed on Xbox.com or the console itself for a year of XBL Gold which gives users access to streaming services and multi-player gaming for the company’s Xbox 360 (and presumably the upcoming Xbox One) gaming console.

15.6" Dell Inspiron 15 Core i3 Laptop w/ Windows 7 @ $399.99

Why pay $350 for a WinRT Surface without the keyboard dock when for a mere $400 you can pick up a full 15.6" laptop.  While the Core i3-3227U is not the fastest processor around it will certainly outperform an ARM based processor and the onboard GPU will handle the 1366x768 display.  You also get 4GB of DDR3-1600, a 500GB HDD and a DVD burner and most importantly for some this laptop ships with Win7.
