Quality computer components and hardware don’t come cheap — well, not typically. Premium hardware often demands a premium price, but thankfully for the budget-conscious consumer inside all of us, some retailers and manufacturers have been known to discount some of their wears for a limited time. Below is a roundup of some of best discounts available across the web, whether you’re in need of a budged-based laptop, a burly graphics card, or something else entirely.
HP Envy 13 Notebook ($749)
Through B&H, you can pick up an HP Envy 13 Notebook for $749 — that’s $350 off the regular list price. The laptop is outfitted with a 2.5GHz Intel Core i7-6500U processor, 8GB of DDR3L RAM, and 13.3-inch display that touts 3,200 x 1,800-pixel resolution. B&H is also offering standard shipping at no extra cost, so you don’t have to worry about additional expenses on top of the retail price.
HP Envy 15 Notebook ($650)
If you think the specs on the aforementioned laptop are attractive, but you’re on the market for something a little bigger — or even a bit cheaper — then this deal on the HP Envy 15 will likely suit your needs. HP is currently offering the laptop for $649, saving you $300. You can also save an additional $35 with the coupon code “DEALNEWSSAVE15.” The laptop comes equipped with a sixth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, and a 15.6-inch display, not to mention Windows 10 Pro. HP also offers free expedited shipping and returns with the deal, and a $40 credit toward a set of Bose speakers.
Lenovo G51 laptop ($200; in-store pick up only)
You can pick up this Lenovo G51 laptop for $200 from your local Mirco Center store — provided you actually have a local Micro Center store. While the brick-and-mortar caveat is a bit restrictive, this deal saves you $50, and since there’s no shipping involved, you could potentially have it as soon as your order is processed. The G51 features a 15.6-inch display, a 1.8Ghz AMD A4-7210 processor and integrated AMD graphics chip, 4GB DDR3L-1600 RAM, and a 500GB hard drive.
Dell XPS 13 Notebook ($669)
We’ve got another laptop deal for you this week, this time for Dell’s XPS 13 with Core i5. B&H’s deal knocks $230 off the initial asking price, reducing it from $899 to $669. The 13.3-inch laptop’s hardware includes an Intel Core i5-5200U dual-core processor and 4GB of RAM, and ships with Windows 10 Home. As an added bonus, free expedited shipping is also included.

Sony VAIO Z Canvas with Core i7 ($1,000)
If you’re looking for more versatility with your mobile computer, then give the Sony Vaio Z canvas might just be for you. The notebook easily converts into a tablet thanks to a detachable keyboard and a 12.3-inch touchscreen display. It even comes with a stylus and a kickstand for an added touch of convenience. Inside, you’ll find a 2.2GHz Intel Core i7, 8GB of DDR3L RAM, and a 256GB SSD. On Amazon, you can pick one up for $999.99. Read our hands-on impressions.
Asus GeForce GTX 970 ($275)
ASUS’ version of the GeFore GTX 970 is a beefy competitor when it comes to mid-tier graphics. The card offers a whopping 4GB of 7010 MHz GDDR5 and a 256-bit interface, along with a 1,253MHz boost clock. The card also comes with ASUS’ GPU Tweak Utility software, so you can manage the GPU’s performance in real-time. It provides a host of ports, including support for DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI 2.0, and HDCP. These are some impressive specs, but when you consider that Amazon’s current deal slashes $100 off the base price — $70 in instant savings and a $30 rebate — the card only becomes more attractive.
If you’re in the process of piecing together a new PC, the processor is (obviously) one of the most important parts to consider. Thankfully, AMD’s Athlon 5350 2GHz processor is on sale through Micro Center for a cool $40, which saves you $24 off the base price of $64. You’ll even save an additional $40 on you order when you bundle the processor with a compatible motherboard.
Corsair Hydro Series H8iv2 ($77; after rebate)
Need some serious cooling power? Newegg’s got you covered with this deal on a Corsair Hydro H8iv2 liquid cooling system. The 120-millimeter radiator boasts a large surface area for quick cooling, and is designed for effective cooling with minimal noise. The system normally sells for $110, but you can snag one right now for $77 thanks to Newegg’s current promotion and a $10 mail-in rebate.
AMD Radeon R9 Fury X ($400)
AMD’s Radeon Fury X wasn’t the best video card when it originally released due to its problems beating the GTX 980 Ti at 1080p resolution, but the card’s not slow, and at the right price it might be your best bet. Newegg is now offering the card for just $400. That’s hard to beat, and it’s a particularly good deal given this card’s performance at 4K. Read our full review for more.
