Clicking on any of the deals from the Laptops and Notebooks category will provide additional information on the product, as well as a handy graph revealing the online price history over time. Shoppers can feel better about their purchases knowing that the price has recently gone down or decide to hold off if it has been listed for significantly less in the past.
