With Thanksgiving out of the way, the Black Friday shopping extravaganza is now in full swing - and not only in the United States. To the delight of bargain hunters in the UK, there are plenty of juicy offers available there too, including a rather impressive deal on a Windows tablet.
You can currently buy the Linx 7 for just £39.99 - that's £20 off its regular price. But what makes its current price tag even more appealing is that it also includes a free Office 365 Personal subscription, worth £59.99.
The Linx 7 was released in the UK just over a year ago, and it's hardly a high-end device, but given its affordable price, that's not exactly a surprise. Its key specs include:
- 7-inch IPS LCD with 1280x800px resolution
- Quad-core 1.33GHz Intel Atom (Bay Trail-T) Z3735G processor
- 1GB RAM
- 32GB storage (plus microSD slot)
- 2MP rear camera
- 2MP front-facing camera
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 3500mAh battery
So for two-thirds of the amount you would ordinarily pay for the Office 365 subscription, you'll not only get Microsoft's productivity suite for a year, but you'll also get a Windows tablet - and let's face it, even if you think the tablet sucks, you can always give it away to someone for Christmas, and keep the sub for yourself...
