Deals of the Week

Our budget choices for this week include the HP Envy 13 laptop, the Motorola Droid, and some Xbox 360 games.

HP Envy 13, $1275

Use coupon code NBS978841 at the HP Website to receive 15 percent off the truly stylish and lightweight HP Envy 13. The coupon drops the price from $1500 to $1275, making the Envy 13 a reasonable option if you're looking for a full-fledged but still highly portable laptop.

The 13-inch base model is less than 1 inch thick and built around a 1.6GHz Core Duo processor, 3GB of memory, and a 250GB hard drive.

We were excited when HP dropped the Envy 13's sticker price from the original $1700--but at an even better $1275, this laptop may be too good to pass up. The eye-catching Envy 13 even made it into the PCWorld 100, so there's no reason to feel any Apple envy.

Motorola Droid Smartphone, $110

Hurry: Amazon has the superpopular Motorola Droid smartphone on sale for $110 when you sign up for a Verizon Wireless plan. That's $90 less than what you can buy the handset for at the online Verizon store.

The Droid currently holds the number one spot on PCWorld's Top 10 Cell Phones chart. It runs the Android 2.0 OS, sports a stunning 3.7-inch display, and offers a nice array of Web features. At $110, this phone is quite a steal.

Dell Studio Hybrid Desktop, $299

You can get the Dell Studio Hybrid basic desktop for $299 at the Dell online store. Shipping costs an additional $13, bumping the total price up to $312, but that's still a considerable drop from the usual $500 price point.

We like the Dell Studio Hybrid for its sleek design and compactness--Dell says that it's 80 percent smaller than a typical desktop. The system runs Intel's Pentium dual-core and Core 2 Duo processors, supports up to 4GB of RAM, and comes with up to 320GB of hard-drive storage.

Tripods, 30 Percent Off

Was one of your New Year's resolutions to take more pictures or video? Enter coupon BensBargains30%Tri at PCMicroStore to receive 30 percent off a variety of tripods, including models that are good for use with a camcorder, a digital camera, or even a cell phone.

Just snagged one of these tripods? Congratulations--now you don't have to make the world's cheapest tripod.

Xbox 360 Games: Buy Two, Get One Free

For all of you Xbox 360 fans, Amazon has a special deal on select Xbox 360 games: You can get three Xbox 360 Platinum Hits for the price of two.

Games to choose from include Assassin's Creed, Fable 2, Gears of War, and Halo 3. The cheapest game will be the one dropped from the total; the titles range in price from $16 to $30 on Amazon.
