Tuesday deals: motherboards, a nice laptop, and an Xbox One S

Are you boredly browsing the web at work? Do you feel fatigued from all of the tasks you've yet to tackle? I know what you need, gerbils. You need to spend some money! We've dug through the deals on offer at our favorite e-tailers to produce a few fairly fine Tuesday deals. Today, we're offering up a pair of motherboards, an HP ultrabook, and a nice price on an Xbox One S with an accompanying display.

First up, the motherboards. Whether you're building an AMD machine or an Intel rig, we can set you up. MSI's B250M Gaming Pro looks fancy in red and black, and it could make a fine foundation for a glorious game machine. Newegg's got it for sale for just $69.99 right now, and there's a $10 rebate on top of that. The mobo comes with a free six-button optical gaming mouse, too.

If your tastes run toward overclocking, then consider instead this Asus Prime X370-Pro. This is a full-sized Socket AM4 motherboard with all the fixings, including USB 3.1 ports, an Intel-powered LAN port, SLI support, and the full allotment of eight SATA ports. You can pick up this mobo for just $129.99 at Newegg, which is one of the lowest prices we've seen on a full-featured X370 board. The $15 rebate on offer is just gravy, and it can bring the final price to $115.

Over at Sam's Club, the seller has knocked $400 off the regular price of an HP Envy 13 notebook. This machine has a Core i7-7500U CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB NVMe SSD. HP says this laptop will last over 14 hours on battery, but the real highlight of this potent portable is the 13.3" IPS touchscreen display with 3200×1800 resolution. If you're a Sam's member, you can pick up this all-aluminum article for just $799.

If you've got a youngster that keeps taking up all your TV time, keep them occupied with this combo over at the fresh ovum. The e-tailer is practically giving away an Asus VZ229H 21.5" IPS monitor with speakers if you purchase an Xbox One S system. You can pick up the bundle containing a 500 GB Xbox One S system with Madden 18 plus the 1920×1080 Asus monitor for just $299 after the combo discount. That's only $20 over the price of the Xbox alone. Don't forget that the Xbox One S can play 4K Blu-Ray discs, too.

That's all for today, folks! There's a chance you're looking for something we haven't covered. If that's the case, you can help The Tech Report by using the following referral links when you're out shopping: not only do we have a partnership with Newegg and Amazon, but we also work with Best Buy, Adorama, RakutenWalmart, and Sam's Club.

    Any news on the next AGESA update? My 3200Mhz ram still wont work at its rated speed on my Asus Prime board.

    I kind of wish I was in the market for a new laptop. That HP Envy seems like a really good deal — the same config on HP’s site is $949 w/1080 screen, or $1099 w/4K. No doubt this is clearing stock in anticipation of the new “8th Gen” models and the BF/Q4 shopping season. I’d probably rue the 8GB RAM eventually, but for most productivity / school tasks it should be fine.

      8 GB won’t last 5 years I don’t think for a power-user anyway. Other than that yeah, crazy good deal.

        For a “power user” 8GB isn’t enough now, and wasn’t good enough over five years in the past when I put 16GB into a new Sandy Bridge 2500K build. I moved up to 32GB about 18 months ago because I was regularly passing 24GB of virtual memory in use (and lucked out on the RAM prices at the time). No way 8GB is a power user configuration today, let alone in 5 years.

        That said, I have 8GB in a Surface I use semi-regularly to do actual work, and I survive (I just pick and choose what I work on, and defer certain tasks until I get back to my desktop). But if a laptop was my only machine (which would be intolerable, honestly, but were there a gun to my head) I’d be looking at something that was at least upgradable to 32GB if it didn’t have it already.

        But like I said, for office productivity and school use, this should be fine.
