This is an update of a deal I wrote about a couple months ago.
Windows RT: Thanks, but no thanks, am I right?
I think that depends. Windows RT on a $650 laptop or tablet is just plain ridiculous, but on a hybrid priced at $299? That's something altogether different.
Vive la difference: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Lenovo is offering the IdeaPad Yoga 11.6-inch convertible laptop for $299 shipped, plus sales tax where applicable. That's after applying coupon code USPYR251031 at checkout. This is the really snazzy silver/orange model silver/black model.… Read more

What would it take to make Internet Explorer hip again? Could an anime heroine do it?
As it gears up for the launch of Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 on Thursday, Microsoft posted a new ad featuring Inori Aizawa, a feisty anime girl who battles robots with her trusty SmartScreen shield while wearing a Sailor Moon-esque outfit complete with the Windows logo on her skirt.
