It’s a new year, and with it, new pricing trends are appearing across the retail space. We’ve seen 18% drops on average in price movements across all “Ultrabooks” classified laptops. Unsurprisingly, most are with Windows 8, as manufacturers do everything they can to get a faster adoption rate for MSFT’s new operating system.
Some of these Ultrabooks are reaching budget laptop pricing territory, like the Lenovo U310 now selling for $450. There was even a deal on the high-end Samsung Series 9 at $699 (albeit with 2nd gen CPU) just a few days ago on Amazon, a machine that used to retail for well over $1,200 when first released.
If you’re in the market for a new laptop and looking for something thin and lightweight with decent boot time and a balance between performance and battery life, here are 7 Ultrabooks under $700.
