Refurbished Dell Latitude E6430 Laptops for $179 to $200

Oops this got lost in the shuffle, but better late than never, Dell Refurbished has a sale on Dell Latitude E6430 Laptops with prices ranging between $179 and $200 with free ground shipping. This is a sale, it does not need a coupon, and coupons do not work on it. Offer ends on Thursday at 11/23/2017 at 11:59pm central time.

Cokin P Series H300-01 Solid ND Filter Kit for $35 w/FS

And now time for some lens filters! Adorama is offering the new condition Cokin P Series H300-01 Solid Neutral Density Filter Kit (includes ND2, ND4 and ND8 Filter, model CH300-01) for $33 with free shipping and handling for a limited time.

While there, they are offering the new condition Apple 15.4″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (2.9 GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Radeon Pro 460 GPU 4GB GDDR5, Late 2016 model) for $1899 with free expedited shipping.

13.5″ Surface Book 2 (i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB) for $1388

We already mentioned Macs and Pixelbooks and the Samsung Chromebook Plus/Pro sale, so according to the Fairness Doctrine, we must also mention a Surface product. And what a coincidence, there’s a sale, the all new 13.5″ Surface Book 2 in the Intel i5 with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage configuration is on sale for $1388 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit up to three per customer).

PS: in Microsoft-speak, “Books” are detachables, “Surface” are tablets with optional keyboard cases/covers, and “Laptops” are non-detachable laptops.

Samsung Chromebook Plus for $349

And so it begins, today’s madness of posts with the Samsung Chromebook Plus discount that was promised. It is now down to $349 in new condition at Amazon by Amazon itself and Samsung itself and Office Depot and B&H Photo and Adorama.

This is a great combo if you want both a new ChromeOS touchscreen laptop and an Android tablet with a 3:2 aspect ratio and a built-in stylus. If the included stylus is too small for some of your pixel peeping, fear not, there is also a Samsung-blessed made-in-Germany Staedtler Noris Digital Samsung Pencil (EMR Technology, Yellow Black, GP-U999ERIPAAB) that is now on sale for $17 in new condition. IF the color scheme is familiar, it is the famous German pencil manufacturer. It averages 4.3 out of 5 based on 74 customer reviews. This not only works with these Chromebooks but also various other Samsung Note phones, tablets and laptops.

Speaking of others, the Samsung Chromebook PRO with the Intel processor had a parallel discount, dropping to $450 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself (limit five) and at B&H Photo and Samsung itself.

PS: the Amazon same-day delivery window closes in a couple of hours, the PLUS is calling me at this price 🙂 And the discount on the Staedtler stylus is a sign 🙂 #Temptation

PS2: note that these only have two multi-purpose USB-C ports (one on each side) and a microSD slot. There are no full-size USB ports, no HDMI, no Ethernet.

UPDATE 11/16/17 at 9am ET I’m not sure what happened to these. They are nowhere to be found. I didn’t save the individually links of the laptops for forensic analysis… Unfortunately these type of alerts are only as good as the Gold Box Lightning Deals Upcoming schedule is accurate…

PSA: Samsung Chromebook PRO and PLUS dropping to $450 and $350 next week

I mentioned these earlier in the week in the Chromebook posts, but we have an update on them today!

The official Samsung Black Friday Ad has been revealed and it in they reveal that starting on Saturday their Samsung Chromebook PRO (Intel) will drop to $450 and their PLUS (custom OP1 ARM for ChromeOS) will drop to $350. Both comes with an S-Pen stylus, touchscreen, 360 degree, two USB-C ports (no full size USB), Google Play integration, 3:2 aspect ratio, microoSD card, etc.

So this is the price to meet or beat right now! This give us five more days to research it and decide whether to jump in or not. I am definitely tempted! Both my Chromebook and Android tablet belong in a technology history museum, so this could replace both devices, and would let me do more serious blogging work on the go, not just lightweight stuff.

PS: one lesser known feature of ChromeOS is that you can login to multiple Google accounts at the same time, without having to logout and login over and over. You can even move Windows between the two accounts. Handy if you have work and personal accounts and/or multiple people in the same household using the computer interchangeably (eg during TV binging marathons). See Help page for details.

ASUS Chromebook Flip C302 for $430

With Android camera and photography apps picking up in features and usability, a “ChromeDroid” (Chrome OS laptop with Google Play Android app support) may be an option for some photographers in some situations. Which brings us to a sale, the new condition ASUS Chromebook Flip C302 is down to $430 with free shipping, sold and shipped by Amazon itself with up to three units per customer.

This is competing with the Samsung Chromebook PRO which also uses the Intel m3-6Y30 processor, but the Samsung goes for $500 and comes with and supports an S-Pen stylus. The ASUS does not come with or support a specialty stylus (you can use a general purpose touchscreen stylus but those are nowhere near as accurate or useful as digitizer technology like the S-Pen, or Surface Pen or Apple Pencil or Wacoms).

Speaking of which, as of the time of writing, all four options of the ChromeOS flagship, the Google Pixelbook are now in-stock and shipping by Amazon itself. The 128GB option goes for $1000, while the 256GB goes for $1200. The Stylus costs $99 more, available as a bundle on that page or can be purchased separately.

PS: with Thanksgiving / Black Friday happening early this year [the second earliest calendar wise], things are happening faster than I can breathe.
