Two manufacturer refurbished units on sale from separate retailers, $330 and under

Cheapest Touchscreen Laptop gets cheaper: Asus Vivobook
 
 

The Asus Vivobook was announced as the "Touch[screen] available for everyone". Right around the time Microsoft released Windows 8 last year, Asus came put them up for sale. They're meant to be a light and portable machine with an 11.6-inch multi-touch LED display, but also packs enough punch w/ it's Core i3 processor to beat out your basic Pentium processor laptops. The basic unit was $499 at release.

Now, if you know where to look, they're in the bargain bin. Today two cheap manufacturer refurbished Asus Vivobooks popped up from two different retailers:

Asus Vivobook Q200E-BSI3T08 Touchscreen Core i3-3217U, 4GB RAM (Refurbished) — $329.99 at Groupon. Cheapest ever by $120. Next best is $430 at Best Buy.

The above $330 unit comes with an Intel 3rd generation Core i3 processor! It's hard enough to find a Core i3 laptop under $400, make it a touchscreen and you're often looking at $450 and up.

Asus VivoBook Q200E-BHI3T45 Touchscreen Core i3-2365M, 4GB RAM (Refurbished) — $299.99 plus $5 shipping at Woot. Next best is $340 at NewEgg.

The above unit sports an Intel 2nd Gen Core i3 processor, which isn't the latest and greatest but certainly powerful enough for all basic Facbooking/word processing needs.

Both come with 90-day Warranty's.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
