A $400 Touchscreen Windows 8 Laptop Is Your Deal of the Day

When folks started screaming about the Chromebook Pixel's absurd starting price, this is what they were talking about. Never mind the fact you can pick up a Chromebook for $250 any day of the week — for $400 from Best Buy, you can pick up a fully-fledged Photoshop-and-Word-capable 11-inch Asus Touchscreen Laptop running Windows 8. Hell, you can get three of these laptops for the same price as a Chromebook Pixel. They even run Chrome.

Sure, this Vivobook won't set any speed records — the 500GB HD offers no solid-state storage — but at $400, it's a damn cheap computer, which could be perfect for Mom or Junior. With an Intel processor. And a screen you can touch. [Best Buy]

Note: We're watching Chromebook Pixel prices. We're guessing eventually they'll become cheaper, and we'll tell you when it happens.

Dealzmodo is watching what happens to tech after it comes out:
