Laptops allow you to get work done on the go and tablets are certainly nice to have around, but the price of admission for both can be a significant investment. That's where we come in. We've compiled a list of tempting options for both of those categories, all with price cuts that'll tempt wallets. Jump down past the break and take a look for yourself and start the weekend with a new gadget purchase.

Acer Aspire S7-392

Price: $1,250
Regular Price: $1,350
Engadget Score: 87
Buy: Amazon

Acer's refreshed S7 Ultrabook took care of most of our concerns from the original model, but those looking to opt in were still faced with paying more for specs that lower-priced options offered. Now, the laptop is seeing a $100 discount, so the financial burden has been eased a bit. Of course, you'll have to be a fan of white gadgets, too.

MacBook Pro with Retina display

Price: $1,885
Regular Price: $1,999
Buy: Amazon

With the next wave of Apple laptops likely on the way in the coming months, 2013's models are sure to see price cuts. If you can't wait though, you can grab a little over $100 off on the late-2013 editions of the MacBook Pro with Retina display. It may not seem like much of a break on a $2,000 laptop, but discounts on Cupertino's goods are hard to come by before new versions are announced.

Dell Venue 11 Pro

Price: $484
Regular Price: $500
Engadget Global Score: 81
Buy: Provantage

Dell's Bay Trail-powered Venue 11 Pro hit shelves just a few months ago, and it's already seeing price cuts. That said, a few dollars off of a relatively new device is certainly worth a look. If you can hold off for a bit, our price history tool indicates that even deeper savings were seen just a few weeks ago.

Nexus 10

Price: $355
Regular Price: $500
Engadget Score: 72
Buy: Amazon

The Nexus 10 is out of stock directly from Google, but not to worry because we're seeing discounts at other retailers. Just over $350 nets you stock Android on a 32GB 10-inch slate that packs a massive 2,560 x 1,600 resolution. So if you don't mind a 2012 model, you might consider giving this option a long hard look.
