Lenovo’s Y series gaming laptops got refreshed today with the new GeForce GT 750M graphics card. More impressively the prices on some configurations are actually cheaper than last weeks old GeForce GT 650M equipped machines. The best example is the 14-inch Y400 gaming laptop with a Core i7 processor, new GeForce GT 750M card and a 1TB HDD with 16GB SSD. The lowest price ever for these specs on a Y400 with the old GPU was $799. Starting today you can pick it up for $749 with the new chip – the lowest price ever by $50.
Got SOUL? Not in the emphatic sense – in the headphone sense. (The emphatic sense is good too, though.) With Beats by Dre saturating the designer headphone market, not as much attention’s been paid to Ludacris’s offerings, but they’re very similar in quality and now cost far less at Amazon than equivalent Beats models. There are two SOUL by Ludacris models to choose from – a regular model for $80 and an active noise-canceling model for $100. The discounts are for today only, so if you want them for the best prices we’ve seen, don’t “act a fool” and pick up a pair.
Starting today and lasting through the weekend, GamersGate has a sale on Paradox PC games with discounts up to 75% off. Most games are designed with a steep learning curve for the hard-core strategy gamer. Games like Crusader Kings II dropped from $40 to $10 or the Hearts of Iron III: The Finest Hour expansion pack falling from $10 to $5.

LENOVO LAPTOP DEALS
If you read about the 14-inch Y400 above, it’s also worth noting the 15.6-inch Lenovo Y500 gaming laptop also got the new GeForce GT 750M GPU and is also cheaper than the lower-spec’d predecessor. The configuration below with a 1080p display and 1TB HDD + 16GB SSD is only $869 – that’s $10 cheaper than last week with the old G650M chip. At $799 the 15.6-inch Y580 is an even cheaper option than the Y500 and sports a slightly superior GeForce GTX 660M graphics card. This is a better price if you won’t miss the Y500’s 1080p display or backlit keyboard. If gaming isn’t your thing, has two solid coupons for their 15.6-inch U510 and 14-inch U410 Ultrabooks. The IdeaPad U510 with Core i7-3537U, GeForce 625M, 1TB HDD + 24GB SSD is only $749 after a new $380 coupon. The IdeaPad U410 with Core i7-3537U and GeForce 610M is only $679 after a new $370 coupon.

NewEgg has the first discounts on Deadpool and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. Both games have release dates yet to be announced. If you want to game on a Mac, your options tend to be limited.

That’s a rare discount for the Mac version and lowest we’ve seen by $13. Amazon discounted Scribblenauts Unlimited on PC to $9 – that’s less than half the price for the Wii or the 3DS versions.
