Microsoft Store selling the Lenovo Flex 2 15 for just $499

The Microsoft Store site is currently selling the Lenovo Flex 2 15 Windows 8.1 laptop for just $499, which is $200 less than its normal price. It is also selling the same laptop with a one year subscription to Office 365 Home for $578.99, $220 less than its normal $798.99 price tag.

Microsoft is selling the laptop as one of its Signature Edition PCs, which means there won't be any third party junkware or adware installed. You may remember Lenovo recently got into trouble for installing an adware program in some of its commercial laptops in late 2014. The company has since apologized and has offered to remove the software from those laptops.

The Lenovo Flex 2 15 laptop has a 15.6-inch touchscreen display that can flip 300 degrees, which allows it to be used in stand mode for presentations. It has an Intel Core i5-4210 processor running at 1.70 GHz, along with 6GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive combined with an 8GB SDD for fast caching. It has a battery life of up to 6 hours.
