Could anyone help me find a deal on a 13" 2-in-1 or convertible laptop with decent specs for around/under $500?

I'd really appreciate it!

Thanks,
Michael

It's very hard for people to help with such open ended specs. My suggestion is to wait for black Friday or cyber Monday. . And in the meantime setup a slick deal ALERT for laptop. (I'm in the same boat)

Do you know what specs are better than what, or would you help with that?

Thanks for the reply! I'm thinking I'll wait until BF too, though last year it wasn't all it was cracked up to be, IMO.

The problem with the specs I'm looking for is that I'm pretty flexible. I definitely want something bigger than an 11 inch, is either a convertible or 2-in-1 (preferably a 2-in-1), probably a screen that's better than 720p, 4GB+, and a decent processor.

But other than that, I'd sacrifice anything for a deal, including some of the specs above.

Since the market is blowing up, I literally have 12 tabs open with different options and it makes me cross-eyed. The names are killing me too -- why don't they give each one a real name and not BS like HP Pavilion x2? Makes it hard to search.

What are you looking for? Maybe we can let each other know if something pops up?

Thanks,
Michael

After scouring Google's shopping site, I snagged this for $367 shipped from Rakuten from a pretty reputable seller. Too bad there was only one in stock: HP Split x2 13-m100 Tablet PC - 13.3" - In-plane Switching (IPS) Technology - Wireless LAN - Intel Core i3 i3-4010Y 1.30 GHz - Modern Silver - 4 GB RAM - 128 GB SSD - Windows 8 64-bit - Hybrid - 1366 x 768 (LED Backlight) - Bluetooth, Brand New

I'm looking for 2 medium level gaming laptops, for 2 of my family members. So different specs ultimately. I made a laptop alert, and am hoping to see some good options.

If it's helpful to ya, I uses these two sites to compare specs. (links below)

For me, I'm basically looking for 15" monitor or bigger units with GPUs that are rankled at #294 (Intel HD Graphics 5500) or better. And from there, that will likely lock in the CPU at 200 or better, with 6GB ram or more. Odds are all the other specs will be decent if that criteria is met.

I'm looking for a dedicated graphics driver, at least a 15 inch display, i7 processor, foldable for around $600. Can somebody help me out?

I think the Thinkpad Yoga is the only thing that fits your requirements, keep an eye on the Lenovo Outlet.
