Amazon has a timely sale on Borderlands 2 for the PC, dropping the base game price to $20 and the Season Pass to $10. Only three days ago the “Ultimate Vault Hunters Pack” DLC was released, increasing the level cap from 50 to 61. The Vault Hunter pack is included in the Season Pass, and if you buy the Season Pass with the base game, you’ll only pay $24.99 – that’s the lowest price ever for those two combined by $3. For perspective, Amazon’s price for the Borderlands 2 base game alone yesterday was $59.99.

In other PC gaming news, a pre-order copy of Company of Heroes 2 gets you access to the closed beta that went live earlier this week, April 3rd. Green Man Gaming has a $15 off discount this weekend, dropping the games price from $60 to $45. The game releases June 25th.

This week Lenovo released their new 15.6-inch IdeaPad Z500 Touchscreen laptop. Originally the launch price was supposed to be $699, but we found a coupon code dropping the price to $669. With its Ivy Bridge Core i5 processor and 8GB RAM expect upper mid-level performance.

Sub-$200 IPS panel monitors are becoming more common these days, but even so, today’s deal on a 23-inch Dell S2340M IPS LED glossy screen monitor is pretty exemplary. This $140 monitor’s received almost exclusively positive reviews, and the glossy screen augments the color gamut advantage provided by the IPS panel.

COMPUTER DEALS

We found three noteworthy Lenovo PC deals today. A new $500 coupon code at Lenovo drops their 1080p IdeaPad Y500 gaming laptop down to $799. That ties the lowest price ever for the weaker but otherwise similar 720p Y500. The Microsoft Store has a cheap 13-inch Lenovo Ultrabook with a Core i5 processor for only $499. A great value since it’s hard enough to find a standard Core i5 laptop under $500, let alone a thin and light Ultrabook. Finally, The Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190 mini desktop dropped from $419 to $249. While it’s not a powerhouse machine, the Q190 has a small form factor and is ideal for a home theater pc.
