HP Envy TouchSmart

HP Envy TouchSmart 15

Price: $849.99 (Regularly $999.99). Free shipping. 5 percent surcharge for non-Costco members.
Buy: Costco

This version of HP's Windows 8-optimized touchscreen-bearing laptop boasts an Intel i7 quad-core processor, a backlit keyboard, 12GB of onboard memory and a 1TB hard drive. Built to rival the pricier MacBook Air, its light weight and portability make it an appealing choice for coffee shop jockeys.

Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard

Logitech Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810

Price: $44.99 (MSRP $99.99, next best is $67). Free shipping.
Buy: Staples

When it comes to mid-range priced PC accessories, you can rarely go wrong with Logitech products. This keyboard is a standout example of what the company does well. Reviewers praised its compact size, light weight and the way it switches easily between devices, lauding its value even at its original $100 price tag. This is the lowest price we've seen on the backlit, Bluetooth-compatible device.

AmazonBasics Portable Speaker

AmazonBasics Portable Speaker

Price: $6.56 (Regularly $20).
Buy: Amazon

As unpretentious and, admittedly, dull as its moniker, Amazon's first-party, 3.5mm speaker gets the job done as long as you don't ask too much from it. In return, it doesn't ask much from your wallet. Amazon reviewers generally praised the speaker's battery life and sound quality while knocking its short mini-jack cord and weight when using its 4 AA batteries. If you want to avoid battery swapping, you can power the system via USB instead.

EVGA Power Supply

EVGA SuperNova NEX650G Power Supply

Price: $97.74 (MSRP $119.99) Free shipping.
Buy: Amazon

Tinkerers looking for a discounted, yet solid-spec power supply to fuel their rigs would do well to take advantage of the EVGA SuperNova's price drop. Its 5-year warranty, quiet running state, robust feature set, and study build pleased most of the Amazon reviewers who have tried it out, although a pair of reviewers said they received duds that they had to return immediately.

Microsoft Surface RT

Microsoft Surface RT

Price: $349 (Price cut from $499 MSRP) Free shipping.
Buy: Microsoft Store

Microsoft's foray into the tablet fray has been far from an Xbox-style success, and this price cut is a way of acknowledging that sales haven't gone so well. Microsoft is no doubt hoping the $150 bloodletting will get the tab into more users' hands, building momentum for the inevitable refresh. In our review, we saw high potential in the device, praising its full-size USB port, bright display, performance and battery life, while bemoaning its slim app selection.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days

The Walking Dead: 400 Days DLC (Steam)

Price: $2.49 (Regularly $4.99).
Buy: GameStop

Although the Steam Summer Sale is commanding PC gamers' attention, one of the portal's more intriguing pick-ups isn't a part of that bonanza. GameStop is offering the latest episode of Telltale Games' well-reviewed graphic-adventure-narrative take on the seminal zombie comic book at half price. The purchase nets you a download code you can activate on Steam.
