Amazon is selling the Lenovo Flex 2 14-inch laptop at an attractive price tag of just Rs. 44,720. The laptop is powered by the Intel Core i5 processor (fourth generation), supported by 4GB of RAM. It comes with a 500GB hard drive, and an 8GB SSD. The smaller SSD can be useful to quickly run most-accessed applications, and files. But it's still too small to boot Windows 8.1 directly from it. The laptop comes with a 14-inch touchscreen, and graphics card with 2GB of physical memory. The Flex 2 is capable of flipping to a 300 degree angle maximum. Lenovo promises a battery backup of around 4 hours on a standard 4-cell battery. The laptop comes with 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, 1 HDMI port, 1 VGA port, and a memory card reader.
Price: Rs. 44,720
4. Logitech Z443 multimedia 2.1 speakers
Finding a decent 2.1 speaker system has become a problem now. The market is literally flooded with options, and almost all of them are in the same price band. The Logitech Z443 Multimedia speaker systems are pretty decent in terms of value for money. This week, Amazon is selling these at Rs. 2,459, just slightly lower than their usual price, but completely worth it. These speakers carry a rating of 55W RMS/110W peak, and come with a 2-year warranty from Logitech. These are probably the best 2.1 speaker systems you can buy under Rs. 3,500. The sound output is clear, and distortion-free even at higher volumes. At its current price, they're definitely a good buy!
Price: Rs. 2,459
5. Lenovo WD100 wireless display adapter

6. Microsoft Office is now free on iOS, Android
The best deal to come out this week is probably Microsoft's move to make its Office suite free on iPad, iPhone, and Android. Earlier, users could access Office files on these mobile apps for free but to edit them they needed a subscription to Office 365. Well, not anymore. You can now view, edit, and store your Office documents on the cloud for free. Microsoft has also recently partnered with Dropbox to integrate its Office suite with the Dropbox personal cloud storage offerings. This means you can use your existing Dropbox account to store your Office documents on the cloud. Go ahead, and download the Office apps on your iOS or Android device to make the most of it.
