Top 15 Presidents Day Kaby Lake laptop deals for 2017

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: 11 hours, 15 mins ago

It's Presidents Day, and the many laptop manufacturers are hosting sales on laptops that are as good as you would have seen since the Holiday Seasons. What's even better, many of the laptops available now were not in the picture for Christmas 2016, as many of the Intel 7th Gen "Kaby Lake" processors have only recently made their appearance in laptop model lineups. From gaming laptops with Quad Core Kaby Lake CPUs paired with decent GeForce GTX GPUs, to budget/value oriented machines, we've found 15




We'll focus on the big three: Dell, HP, and Lenovo. There you'll find many historical low prices on their popular laptop models. For gamers looking for laptops that can handle modern games, look for laptop deals listed below with GTX 1060 and GTX 1050 Ti. The good thing about 2017 is that for many laptops these days, having a decent IPS 1080p panel is the bare minimum, with some offering 4K panels or even G-SYNC enabled panels (on the Alienware machines). While SSD is still not the complete norm, if it's not available as a standard option, you can custom config most laptop picks below with an SSD storage option.













HP fires rare coupon on pricey Omen X gaming desktop

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: 3 days, 12 hours ago

HP's Omen X 900 series gaming desktop, aka the pricey PC borg cube, is not exactly the friendliest PC for your wallet. Gamers that custom build their PC will immediately scoff at the price, though the collaboration between HP and Maingear is winning some head turns (Note: HP sells the interesting chassis alone for a list price of $600 - that's without any components!) While its easy to spend over two thousand dollars on the Omen X desktop, deals on the premium gaming desktop have been rare since its late 2016 release.


Early this year HP started to refresh the lineup with 7th gen "Kaby Lake" processors with that, we're spotting a solid deal where you can utilize this Omen X coupon code for a fat 20% off.




There are several configurations of the Omen X, some more beefier than others. On top of that, each config is customizable to an extent as long as you're willing to add more cost to your purchase. The coupon code at HP works on those upgrades as well as the base price, so extra savings are applied if you bump up the specs. Out of all the Omen X 900 listed below, the top pick in our opinion is the Omen X 900-140VT with Core i5-7400 Kaby Lake, a respectable GTX 1070, and a combo 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD storage solution. Priced at $1,279.99 - it almost sounds reasonable. Good options to upgrade includes the Core i5-7600K along with a liquid cooling cooler for $80, or 256GB SSD for only $8 more.


20% Off HP Desktop Code: VIPFEB20DT


HP Omen X 900 Series



The coupon code is valid on more than just the cube-chassis Omen X and works for many desktops at HP over $799.99. Another notable gaming desktop it applies to is the more traditional HP Omen 800 series of gaming desktop. At least one configuration of the Omen 870 was upgraded to 7th gen processors, but for the most part HP has not upgraded, so many of the existing configurations have last year's 6th gen CPU specs. Having said that, the Omen 870-210se Core i5-7400 Kaby Lake model with the GTX 1060 at only $799.99 (after coupon) is decisively the more value oriented pick in all the deals listed on this page. This too, is a customizable config and you can add a bigger PSU, more RAM, or SSD combo as you see fit. The 20% off code will scale alone with the upgraded components you pick.

The top For Honor PC deals as we near release

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: 1 week, 3 days ago

For Honor's Open Beta is now available for those looking to partake in the action. The Beta started up Thursday, February 9 and runs up to the game's official release date of Tuesday, February 14. If you give the Beta a whirl and she looks like a keeper, or if you're just enticed by the hype, For Honor also has some decent pre-order discounts available.




PC gamers have three good options to choose from as far as authorized PC gaming retailers go: GMG, GamesPlanet, and GamersGate. If you're in North America you're limited to GamersGate and GMG, who are 22% and 20% off respectively. Both retailers are authorized by Ubisoft and delivery keys instantly via email.


For Honor PC Gaming Deals



In the EU/Africa/Middle East, there's also GamesPlanet. There you'll find the price listed in British Pounds, but you can buy world wide... and with the weakness of the British Pound in the last few months for many the favorable currency conversion makes an even better deal. GamesPlanet is not selling North American keys, so beware of this.

Hardware deals: $309 Core i7-7700K, $142 Radeon RX 480

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Feb 3, 2017 6:44 am

It's a new month with new hardware deals for PC enthusiast. Since a number of new products are coming out (Zen etc.), prices on Intel Kaby Lake are already making some movements beyond suggested list price. As of writing, you can pick up the latest Core i7-7700K for as low as $309.99 via Monoprice's eBay store. This is a straight-up $40 discount (11% off) as all other retailers have the CPU priced at $350 or above.




So far, 680 units have been sold as of writing and we suspect Monoprice isn't carry enough units for the deal to last through the weekend. You'll earn some extra savings too as long as you don't reside in California or Kentucky, as sales tax is imposed to only these two states.


Continuing on with other hot hardware deals,, the web retailer now owned by Walmart, has always been a hardware buyer favorite to score components on the cheap. While the "new" online retailer could use some improvement in the organization department (seriously its very hard to find things on their website) they are often at the forefront of great pricing to lure in new customers. As of writing, you can pick up an ASUS ROG Strix Radeon GPU at a significant discount, with the 8GB edition on sale for only $184.99.

MMO deals: 20% off Conan Exiles, Guild Wars 2 up to half

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Feb 2, 2017 10:44 pm

MMO fans take note this week. Newly arrived Early Access title Conan Exiles is making big waves, as the open-world survival game is now squarely on top of the Top Seller list on Steam Store. Not only that, but you need not pay full price.




Indeed, GMG has launched an exclusive 20% off voucher code slashing the price to $24. This is the best price online as of writing and from a fully authorized Funcom distributor, no less.



Conan isn't the only MMO on sale this week. Arena Net doesn't want to take the spotlight off their baby Guild Wars 2. The still-popular RPG is half price this week making the Standard Edition a $25 purchase or the Collector's $37.49. The promotion is tying in with the arrival of chapter 4, the latest content for the current season.


Last month Square Enix began releasing more an more info on its upcoming expansion Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood and now she's available for pre-order... and of course, at a discount. Yep, GMG has stepped in once again with a 17% instant mark down for both the Standard or the Collector's Edition if you buy through them. We still have a ways before its June 20 launch, but it beats paying full price.


On Steam Store, ARK: Survival Evolved is cheaper this week than it was during the 2016 Steam Winter sale. The dino riding survival title is priced under $10 for the first time along with its expansion ARK: Scorched Earth.

Samsung Gear VR 2015 model clearance sale at $49

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 30, 2016 8:52 am

The wireless provider companies are pre-Spring cleaning a few of their good-but-dated accessories. In the waning days of 2016, one of the best routers of 2013 is getting its price reduced to $59 at T-Mobile which is about $100 cheaper than the next best price online. Verizon is doing a similar thing with the 2015 released Samsung Gear VR Headset dropping the price from $100 to $49.99 - its lowest price to date.




In the case of the Samsung Gear VR deal, we've seen it drop to $49.99 before but not in brand new condition like this. Typically the headset still sells in the $100 range while Amazon is selling refurbished sets for $60 right now.



The ASUS RT-AC68U deal at T-Mobile requires you to enter in promo code WIFI40 at checkout to get the full discount. Even the show price of $99 is not bad at all, considering most retailers are $150 and up, but applying the promo gets you an additional $40 off in the second stage of checkout. T-Mobile ran this deal 2 weeks ago, but it sold out within hours. This deal is set to only run through January 5th, or probably sooner if stock is limited.


The Samsung Gear VR Headset deal (model SM-R322) at Verizon is hidden of sorts. Verizon requires you to add the headset to cart before the discount is revealed. There is a moment of uncertainty as you're on Verizon's site with their $99 displayed price, but not much of a hassle to get the deal.

$5 Metro Redux and Wolfenstein for Steam in Winter Sale

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 29, 2016 7:20 pm

Remember when the Metro Redux bundle released on PC for $50 back in August 2014? That price is long gone, and ever more so during 2016's PC Gaming Winter sales. Steam has reduced the title to $5.99, but GMG has gone all out on the hundreds of deals they have in their sale, turning on a 15% off coupon code making new lows on dozens of titles. With the new coupon, Metro Redux bundle is now a mere $4.92 after coupon in GMG's sale, and their list of hot deals is well worth checking out.




While we're at it, remember when Watch Dogs 2 released for $60? That was only a little over a month ago. Ubisoft's latest along with other Triple-A such as Civilization VI, No Man's Sky, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare are all at their lowest prices to date with the aforementioned coupon code for their digital copies. Most of the titles listed below go above and beyond the Steam Winter sale discount. The sale even extends to upcoming January releases such as Resident Evil 7.


We've broken down the list of deals below by top sellers, upcoming games, and under $10 bargains. Browse away!

Cyber Monday HTC Vive deal with $200 bonus makes return

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 28, 2016 8:25 pm

Update: $100 discount is now gone on the HTC Vive but you can still get a $100 gift card with purchase.


The Microsoft Store must not have sold enough HTC Vive units this Christmas season, because they've brought back the best offer of the year last seen Cyber Monday. This week when you buy an HTC Vive VR system through the Microsoft Store you'll get a $100 discount and a $100 bonus gift card. Taking the gift card bonus into account, that effectively makes the HTC Vive a $599 headset, which is the same price as the cheaper alternative Oculus Rift.




Now the Rift and the Vive each have their own pros and cons, but few would argue the Oculus Rift is the better of the two systems, as the Vive grants you greater options for gameplay (full room vs. stationary headset). Now with there only being a $100 price difference between the two at Microsoft, do you just soak up the $100 loss and get the better system? Great question.



In the case of the Oculus Rift, Microsoft does offer the same $100 bonus gift card. This Gift Card is actually more of a "Gift Code" which arrives via email once your order ships and is good for anything sold at the Microsoft Store like games, computers, tablets, and software.


Microsoft has been offering the $100 bonus gift code for awhile now. In fact the last few weeks they've been running the gift code promo, but it's may not have been a strong enough offer to move the Vive. Thus the $100 discount has come to the potential rescue. What we do know is that this is the best HTC Vive offer since Cyber Monday.

Roundup: cheaper deals than Steam Winter Sale

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 23, 2016 7:20 am

If your wallet has anything leftover from buying console games for your peasant relatives, the PC Gaming master race sales have kicked into high gear. Today Steam launched their highly anticipated 2016 Winter Sale, while other retailers refreshed their own competitive offers to look more attractive. The result is new lows all over the map including the cheapest Dishonored 2, Doom, Rainbow Six: Siege, and of course Civilization VI. Many of the deals you'll find below will be cheaper and better than Steam Store's price (mostly for NA/EU customers).




Exhibit A will be the 2016 GMG Winter Sale. Today they launched a third batch of deals including some hot prices on Bethesda and Ubisoft games. Among the discounts is Dishonored 2 dropping to its lowest price of the year: $34.46 after applying their Winter themed coupon code WINTER10 at checkout.


While Steam's Winter sale is generally beat by GMG and other third party retailers, Steam's sale also covers many titles that are sold exclusively on Steam Store. Big example? Ark Survival Evolved and the well received Planet Coaster are both hitting new lows today in Steam's sale. You'll find them listed along with other noteworthy Steam Store deals below.

PC Winter Sale continues with $10 Rocket League

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Dec 20, 2016 7:18 pm

The PC Gaming Winter Sales are upon us ... and Steam's seasonal offers have yet to begin. Today two new big sales emerged: 1) the refresh of the GMG 2016 Winter Sale and 2) the beginning of the Bundle Stars PC gaming Winter Sale. What both have in common are discounts up to 90% off with a stacking 10% off coupon code to boot for additional savings. Both sales cover a wide range of titles, and among the deals is the best Indie game of all-time (probably) Rocket League.




The best sale to find Rocket League in is GMG with a drop from $20 to $10.79 after coupon. That's a rare drop under $12, and very likely to be cheaper than Steam after the 40% discount + stacking 10% off coupon code. Funny enough, though, it's Bundle Stars hosting the best deal on the 4-Pack Rocket League bundle with a drop from $80 to $32.00 - a historic low price point.


Rocket League Deals:

Bundle Stars Winter Sale Hot Deals - use promo code: WINTERSALE10



Both PC gaming Winter Sales will continue these deals past Christmas, so there is some good longevity to the offers. Among the new lows at GMG are Warhammer Vermintide, Civilization VI, Mafia III, and more. Bundle Stars is seeing likewise the cheapest Mad Max, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, Project Highrise, Stronghold 3 Gold, and more.
