Geek deals Dell 14z ultrabook 100 gift card Samsung 840 SSD more

first_imgUltrabooks are one of this author’s favorite “new” products of 2012. While there were some models in 2011, the category didn’t really take off until Intel’s Ivy Bridge platform finally released in mid-2012.Some may scoff, but for the vast majority of users truly don’t need anything more than an ultrabook and do benefit from the differences from a standard mainstream PC. Ultrabooks are slim, light, and easy to tote with you anywhere. And thanks to deals like this, they fit in most anyone’s budget.This Dell Inspiron 14z packs a — you guessed it — 14-inch screen and has a built-in DVD drive, but measures in at just 0.81-inches thin and 4.12 lbs. In the belly of this thin beast is an Intel Core i5 processor, 6GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, and 32GB SSD cache for fast boot and load times.It has all the other goodies we’ve come to expect from ultrabooks, like wireless n, USB 3.0, HDMI, and Bluetooth.At $699.99 with free shipping, this well configured model comes in at a very competitive price point to other ultrabooks and deals we have seen this year. But when you figure in the bonus $100 store gift card that Dell includes, this is an absolutely smoking hot offer. That gift card (which is emailed within 10-20 days) is perfect for accessorizing your new laptop or maybe buying a warranty upgrade, making this a great deal that comes out to $599.99 out of pocket if you use the gift card.Dell Inspiron 14z Ultrabook with Core i5, Windows 8, and $100 gift card for $699.99 + Free shipping(reg. price $850.99 | use coupon 1BBBZLJSCTPSS3 | ends Dec. 21 or sooner)Our other top deals:LG BH4120S Blu-ray 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater System for $159.99 + Free shipping (reg. $179.99)Planar Helium 27-inch Multi-touch LED-Backlit 1080p LCD Display for $699.99 + Free shipping (reg. $899.99)Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB SATA 6Gb/s 7mm 2.5-inch SSD for $144.99 + Free shipping (reg. $189)last_img read more
