For a 2 in 1 I have not seen anything even close to this deal. A nearly identical product from Lenovo directly is $1599.

OP...why are you comparing the price to a different model instead of just what the discount from the seller's normal price for this computer is?

$100 off an $800 laptop. Not bad. Not unheard of. But not bad.

I hate it when deals show up in wrong searches.
Bluetooth speakers is not a laptop!.

Is it the sites system

Backlit Keyboard with Fingerprint Reader

" Harman Speakers " triggering ' bluetooth speaker search ?

This IS filed under " LAPTOPS " so why is it resulting in a search for Bluetooth Speakers?

What? The deal was great at $799. At $699 its unreal. You cant find this device anywhere for anything close.

Look at the specs.

Care to elaborate? Maybe there is something I am missing? I was shopping for 2 in 1s and came across this. Literally registered here because I was so surprised what a deal it was.

I got a similar laptop about a month ago from microsoft.com the only difference was a integrated graphics card and smaller hard drive but the price was $500, came out to 496 after cash back. so this is a mediocre deal at best. One thing this laptop does have going for it is costco's 4 year warranty

Note: this computer has a spare 2.5" slot in it

Yes, I am sure i am typing on it now just checked I5 8th gen 8250U. The linked computer is better but I do not think it justifies the $200 price increase

It's not a bad "deal" but not a slick deal. There's 3 2in1s on Costco for the same price. I have a similar spec laptop and it was so slow. Popped in an SSD and it's great. There's a 13.3 inch Acer similar specs with an SSD at Costco. I'd choose that.

It's not a deal at $799. That's literally the everyday retail price of that computer. Retail price =\= deal.

12% off is decent, but it's not unheard of.

"Bluetooth (r) 4.1 Harman Speakers" meets the search argument of Bluetooth and Speakers, whereas "Bluetooth Speakers" would not.
For fun, Google big boobs and "big boobs" and note the difference in the number of results. Same thing here.
