Laptop deals of the week: 2.26.14

If that aging laptop is giving you problems, you might just want to take a peek at the collection of discounted machines that we've compiled after the break. There are Windows, Mac and Chromebook options at a range of prices, so there's surely something to satisfy those OS preferences. Heck, most of the group consists of current-gen offerings too, so you can upgrade without having to settle.

If there are other laptops you have your eye on that we haven't included here -- join us and add them to your "Want" list. Every time there's a price cut in the future, you'll get an email alert!

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus

Price: $1,299
Regular Price: $1,400
Engadget Score: 84
Buy: Amazon

Samsung may have let the Series 9 go quite a long time before a refresh, but its successor -- the ATIV Book 9 Plus -- packs a list of specs that made it worth the wait. In fact, we like this model so much we included it in our most recent buyer's guide. According to the 90-day history, the current sticker price is just $50 above the three-month low.

Apple MacBook Air (mid-2013)

Price: $949
Regular Price: $999
Engadget Global Score: 88
Buy: Amazon

Yes, $50 may not seem like too much of a discount, but for a current-gen MacBook Air? Every little bit helps. This 11-inch model packs the Haswell internals that we found to boost battery life dramatically when we reviewed the 13-incher last summer. See for yourself how those two machines differ all the way down the spec sheet with our Compare tool.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 2 Pro

Price: $950
Regular Price: $1,000
Engadget Score: 81
Buy: Best Buy

Another entry in this winter's laptop buyer's guide, the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro is currently being offered with a modest $50 price cut. Again, that may not seem like much, but the convertible also hasn't been on shelves very long, and the current going rate is on par with the 90-day low.

Samsung Chromebook

Price: $230
Regular Price: $249
Engadget Global Score: 78
Buy: Amazon

Need a serviceable machine that requires minimal investment? You might consider Samsung's Chromebook and its $229 price tag. Sure, you're limited to Chrome OS and Google's suite of apps, but the laptop packs a respectable keyboard and display with a decent set of ports for connecting all of those peripherals. Use our Compare tool to see how Samsung's offering stacks up against other top Chromebooks.
