Laptop, tablet prices to reach lows during year-end holiday season

Agam Shah | Nov. 28, 2013
Prices of some laptops and tablets have already fallen, with others expected to drop starting with Black Friday year-end holiday sales in the U.S. this week. Some Chromebook laptops will be available for US$199 and some Windows 8 laptops could come down to $250. The price of Windows 8 tablets and hybrids could fall to under $250, while Android tablets could be available for under $100.

The tablet has 32GB of storage, but the Windows 8 OS occupies a lot of that space. Other tablets such as the Asus Transformer Book T100 will be available with keyboards and could fall to under $300 in the coming days. Windows 8.1 tablets with 8-inch screens now cost about $350.

For Android tablets, retailer Walmart as part of its Friday deals will sell HP's 7-inch Android tablet called Mesquite for $89. Many Android tablets could fall to under $150, an example being Dell's Venue 7, which is priced at $149, but was recently sold for $127 in a short-lived deal. Lenovo's S6000, an Android tablet with a 10-inch screen and quadcore ARM processor, is already priced at $194.

Online deals

Newegg, one of the most popular technology retail sites, is running Black Friday promotions and brick-and-mortar stories like Best Buy and Target are also offering online deals.

Deals will also pop up sporadically at sites such as Slickdeals and Dealnews, with products selling out quickly.
