HP's pricing for its Elite x3 and Desk Dock in the UK has made little sense since the device launched there last year. Every few weeks, the company has been raising or reducing its prices, to as much as £757.20, or as low as £583.20.
Last month, HP introduced yet another deal, offering £150 cashback on the Elite x3 and Desk Dock bundle, based on a purchase price of £673.20, effectively reducing the total cost to £523.20. That offer was due to end on July 31 - but for some reason, HP ditched the cashback promotion early.
Now, it's slashed the price of the bundle by £124.20 (18% less than its previous upfront price), which means that you can get the Windows 10 Mobile flagship with the Desk Dock for £549. There's no indication that this is a limited-time offer, so it may well be a permanent price cut.
