While many folks tend to focus on smaller and more portable laptops, others prefer something with a bigger screen. While they tend to be harder to find bags for, bigger screens give you more screen real estate to work with, and if you have eyesight issues, having a bigger screen can also work. Unfortunately, there aren’t as many 17-inch screens out there as we would like, but we’ve still found a nice selection that you can pick from, with everything from the budget-friendly to the high-end.
While there aren’t a lot of budget-oriented 17-inch laptop deals, this one on HP’s 17z is a solid choice if you want a Windows laptop that stays under $300. It comes with an AMD Athlon Gold 7220U, which is perfect for simple day-to-day tasks and productivity work, and the 8GB of RAM will give you a bit of leeway when it comes to apps and tabs. Storage is minimal, though, at only 128GB, so you might want to grab one of these external hard drive deals to help. As for the screen, it runs a 1600 x 900, but you can upgrade that to 1920 x 1080 for an extra $40, which is what we’d do if we only made one upgrade here. That said, if you can swing it, then upgrading to the AMD Ryzen 3 7320U for $80 is also another good upgrade that will give you a better quality of life.
On the other hand, if HP’s budget option doesn’t quite do it for you, there are some other options you can go with. For example, there’s a great Chromebook version that will work well if you want it something for work or school, and if you want something that can do a bit of gaming, there are both LG Gram 17 and XPS 17 configurations that offer it, although they get expensive quickly.
