Ho ho ho, Santa Nadella comes bearing gifts for nearly two weeks as Microsoft offers up “12 Days of Deals” on its online and retail stores. Some of these deals are pretty good, while others are a little ambiguous. In a nod to retail traffic, Microsoft is also offering “In-Store Doorbuster Deals” that are only available at its 116 stores worldwide. And they have some of the best offerings. So without further ado, let’s run down the list, along with my take on each deal:
- Day 11-December 15:
*Save up to 40% on select Dell PCs, starting at $199.In-Store *Doorbuster Deal: Save $150 on an Acer Jade Primo, now $299.Take a close look at the specs. I wouldn’t expect much from a $199 laptop. And the Acer Jade Primo is a Windows Phone. Do you really want one at this point?|
All told there are some great deals, some not-so-great deals, and a few where Microsoft looks to be blowing out old inventory. Still, it’s a lot more than Apple is offering.
