Microsoft has slashed the price of its flagship smartphone offering by a massive $200 and the Lumia 950 XL now costs a modest (for its top-shelf status) $299. The Lumia 950 (non-XL) goes for $249, $150 off, but is out of stock.

You could splurge and get an HP Elite x3 – that one rocks the newer Snapdragon 820 chipset, and not the troubled 810 in the 950XL. HP’s smartphone is also discounted, but at $649, it’s not as great a deal as the Lumia. Then again, the price includes the Desk Dock, which can make the Elite X3 sort of a desktop PC, Continuum and all.

The offers are valid until December 24, but make sure you order before the 20th, if you want to put them under the Christmas tree.
