Samsung deals roundup: free Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 offer ends tonight and more

The deal which offers buyers a free Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet when they purchase a Samsung Series 5 or Series 9 Ultrabook ends tonight.

We reviewed the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 tablet back in June 2012.

The tablet carries a suggested retail price of £199, though it's possible to get it for as little as £150 from some outlets. You can read more about the offer on Samsung’s dedicated Ultrabook deal page (the product code of the lone Series 5 device in question is NP530U3C-A04UK). Note that you will need to buy the laptop and then claim via the the promotional site (providing proof of purchase) to get the free gift.

For the record, the cheapest Samsung Series 5 notebook on the market at time of publication was the one from (which is part of DSGi) and costs £586.50 including delivery (use the discount code UK12PIXMAS at checkout).

For your money, you'll get an Intel Core i3-3217UM processor clocked at 1.8GHz supported by 3MB L3 cache, 6GB of RAM, and Intel HD Graphics 4000.

Weighing just 1.52kg, the slimline laptop sports a 13.3in, 1,366 x 768 pixel SuperBright display and comes pre-loaded with Windows 8. It also features a good-sized 500GB hard disk drive with 24GB 'Express Cache.' Rounding out the device's specifications are a card reader, two USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 socket, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an HDMI output, and an HD webcam

A further Samsung offer of particular interest to enterprises is the free five year warranty offer for select B2B notebooks, including Series 2, Series 4, and Series 6 devices. To access this deal, register your new Samsung B2B laptop on the dedicated promotional page.

The deadline for registration is 31 January 2013, while claiming for the tablet deal must be completed by 28 February 2013 - but remember, you must have purchased your participating Series 5 or Series 9 deal my midnight tonight. In other words, hold off on the champagne popping for a moment and get in one last bit of festive deal hunting!
