This is kind of a surprise. If you are in the US and have been thinking about the ultraportable 13.3-inch Samsung X360, Amazon.com has the X360-34G as their “Deal of the Day” today. This is probably one of the cheapest ultraportable deals with an Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) CPU – Samsung claims it’ll get you up to nearly 8 hours of battery life.
List Price: $1,899.00
Price: $1,049.99 & eligible for free shipping with Amazon Prime
Save: $849.01 (45%)
Note: There is a $300 rebate listed, however that expired yesterday. The deal today is much better.

The listed weight is 2.9 pounds – lighter than some netbooks/ultraportables with smaller displays. It partially achieves this by ditching the optical drive, similar to Apple’s MacBook Air, so there is not an optical/DVD/CD drive included.
