HP starts their holiday promotion with free NOOK reader on select laptops
You know the holiday is in full swing when the reatilers starts giving away more freebies as a way to entice you further. Hewletter Packard's (NYSE:HPQ) personal computer group division has devised an interesting offer where you can get the Barnes and Noble NOOK eReader for FREE on qualifying HP laptops.
Of course, the "FREE" part is a moot point if you don't pick the right laptop where the real savings happen (as for certain laptops, the savings are simply rolled into the new, higher priced laptop). The good thing is we've done the homework for you and have selected two models where you'll get same value as you would have from Cyber Monday (in fact, one of them is even cheaper than it was on Cyber Monday!)
HP 2000z AMD E-1200, 4GB RAM, Windows 8 + Free B&N Nook eReader for $400 with free shipping (normally $400). One of the cheapest 15-inch laptop on the market.
HP Envy dv4t Ivy Bridge Core i3-3110M 3rd Gen, Windows 8 + Free B&N Nook eReader for $530 with free shipping (normally $550 - use coupon code SAVE20HP). This 14-inch laptop deal is now cheaper than it was on Cyber Monday!
You'll find plenty to like about these laptops which hardly breaks the bank. Both are installed with the latest Windows 8 from Microsoft, plus you get the current generation processor from Intel in the Envy dv4t model. The AMD E-1200 is no slouch too for a $400 machine, especially considering the price when you get the free Nook eReader. Both deals includes free shipping.
