Microsoft is offering up to $650 off a selection of Windows 10 PCs in a three-day sale on its US store. Big savings are available not just on high-end machines, but even on some more affordable devices.
One such device is the HP Notebook 15-ay091ms, which has a 15.6-inch touchscreen, sixth-generation (Skylake) Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive. It's clearly not going to set the world alight with fierce performance, but it might be a decent choice for a student, or as a device for web browsing or casual gaming at home. Usually priced at $499, it's now got $160 off, reducing it to $339.
But there's something too for those with deeper pockets, and an appetite for something a bit more hardcore.
The Alienware 15 Touch offers a mighty suite of specs for gamers on the go, such as a 15.6-inch touchscreen with 4K (3840x2160px) resolution, Intel Core i7-6700HQ (Skylake) processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD with an additional 1TB hard drive. It also has a 3GB Nvidia GeForce GTX970M graphics card, and a range of ports including USB 3.1 Type-C.
This mighty beast is normally priced at $2,499, but with $650 off, it's now $1,849.
And if desktop PCs are more your thing, you might consider the HP ENVY Curved 34-A051, featuring a 34-inch curved display with ultra-wide Quad HD (3440x1440px) resolution. It also an Intel Core i7-6700T (Skylake) processor, 12GB of RAM, 128GB SSD + 1TB hard drive, and an Intel RealSense 3D camera.
Normally $2,099, it's now $1,699 - a savings of $400.
There are various other offers available on a range of PCs in the sale, but bear in mind that these discounts will only be available until August 20.
