Deal: £900 Asus Taichi convertible laptop

Buy any laptop costing £500 or more from Currys or PC World until 11 September to get a £100 rebate. More about the terms and conditions of that offer here.

Grab the Asus Taichi convertible laptop, otherwise known as the 21-CW009H, for just under £900, a massive drop of around 40 per cent off the device's suggested retail price. Note that this is a refurbished model.

You can use it as a laptop and a tablet (it has two screens back-to-back). I kind of wished that Asus would have made the second screen detachable although, I guess that would be technically very difficult or impractical.

When it comes to hardware specifications, there's not much more to improve. You get an Intel Core i7-3517U processor clocked at 1.9GHz with 4MB cache, two cores and a near 60 per cent overclock, 4GB of RAM, an integrated Intel HD 4000 Graphics, two 11.6in full HD IPS displays, a 256GB SSD, a card reader, two USB 3.0 ports, Mini HDMI and mini VGA, Bluetooth 4.0, up to five hours battery life, a 5-megapixel camera and more.
