Manufacturers are always coming up with new ways to promote their products. They sometimes throw in a few bonuses just so you can buy the main product.
While the idea of having multiple items for the price of one seems appealing, sometimes deals aren’t exactly worth the price. Because of this, we’ve decided to compile a list of what we think are the best bundles that you can buy today.
Note: Deals are subject to change. Keep in mind that the price tag often varies. We recommend going on the vendor’s website to check the price. Some of the products may be out of stock by the time you’ve made your purchasing decision. So, hurry up and hit the buy button.
ASUS VivoBook Bundle
Probably the best value-for-your-money pack on our list, the ASUS VivoBook Bundle not only includes a laptop that is well worth the whole bundle’s price on its own, but it also comes with a computer backpack and mousepad.
This makes it a great back-to-school gift, as all that is missing is a mouse and you have pretty much everything you may ever need.

Closing thoughts on laptop bundles
While bundles are usually just a gimmick that manufacturers use to get rid of extra merchandise that is on stock, it would be highly hypocritical if we didn’t admit that we also benefit from the reduced price tag they come with.
As such, as long as you pay close attention to the bonus gifts you receive, buying bundles is actually not a bad idea at all.
