The IFA Expo 2016 in Berlin is a grand showcase of Windows 10 devices from the biggest manufacturers in tech. Unfortunately, the latest devices on display might leave you longing as they won’t be available on the market for a while.

The devices that grabbed the most attention included the Acer Predator 21 X, the slender and eccentric Lenovo Yoga Book, and the impressive HP Pavilion Wave and Elite Slice. As tempting as the machines may seem, they do not come cheap, with some costing you a month’s rent.

But if you are looking for a new PC and at the same time want to go easy on your pocket, you might want to check out the Microsoft Store. Microsoft is currently offering a discount of up to 42% on a wide selection of Windows devices to choose from.
