Normally hunting for the best Black Friday tech deals (opens in new tab) means finding the best discount on typical selling prices, but we’ve spotted a deal this time around that also sweetens the pot by including a phone. The deal in question is the Asus ZenBook 14 for $899.99, which comes a Asus ZenFone Max included (opens in new tab).
The ZenBook 14 itself doesn’t lack for specs either. It comes packed with an Intel Core i7-8565U CPU, which is a U-series, ultra-low voltage processor but still a genuine quad-core (opens in new tab) unit with Hyper-threading (opens in new tab), and it can boost (albeit briefly), up to a clock speed (opens in new tab)of 4.6 GHz for when a little more oomph is needed. Other specs include 16GB of LDDR3 2133 MHz RAM, a 512GB PCIe (opens in new tab)SSD, and an Nvidia MX150 GPU. All things considered, those aren’t shabby specs for a thin-and-light notebook.

This laptop comes with a four-core, eight-thread processor, plus a decent amount of storage and reliable amount of RAM for an ultraportable. Plus, Newegg is throwing a free Asus ZenFone Max smartphone with a quad-core processor to sweeten the deal.
The display is standard at FHD resolution (opens in new tab), and the laptops runs off 47Whr battery, which is said to be able to power the notebook for up to 10 hours (although, your experience will vary depending on usage).
The included smartphone is the ZenFone Max (M1) in sunlight gold. It’s not a flagship phone, and whilst Newegg claims that it’s worth $299.99, that’s obviously the MSRP price. The phone came out in May 2018 and comes with a 5.5-inch 720x1440 resolution IPS (opens in new tab)display, has 2GB of memory and is paired to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core system-on-chip (opens in new tab) (SoC).
