Though Windows 10 Mobile is essentially a dead platform at this point, there are still those who either aren't quite ready to jump ship to Android or iOS, or who like to keep a Windows phone around as a backup. If you count yourself among that group, Microsoft is currently running a sizable deal on the HP Elite x3 bundled with a desk dock, cutting its price down to $299. The only catch? You'll have to pick it up at a nearby Microsoft retail store.
There's no getting around the fact that the Elite x3 is a pretty old piece of hardware at this point. It's powered by a Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. However, it's one of the last pieces of Windows phones to be released, and it features some of the beefiest specs you'll be able to find on one. With the included desk dock, you'll also be able to hook it up to a monitor and take advantage of Continuum.
Considering the bundle used to go for $799, this is a pretty steep price cut. But you'll have to be near, or willing to drive to, a Microsoft Store to get one. The bundle is listed as out of stock online, but you can order it for in-store pickup. And if you're looking to add to your setup, Microsoft also has the Elite x3 Lap Dock on sale for $199, which is down from its previous $599 price point.
