The Lenovo Slim 3 Chromebook is a low cost laptop with surprisingly good user reviews, an attractive look, and a couple of surprises up its sleeve. It’s a 14-inch FHD touchscreen computer, runs on Chrome OS, and 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of eMMC flash memory. Surprisingly, for this price, it has a built-in FHD webcam and microphone, WiFi 6 capabilities, and two speakers built into the sides for great stereo sound. This laptop is perfect for browsing the net, writing the next great American novel, or getting lost on YouTube instead of writing the next great American novel. And, as a fun little bonus, it comes with Minecraft free, making it a great first laptop for your kids as well.
Another item that proves you don’t have to spend a ton to get a decent touchscreen laptop. the HP 15.6-Inch Touch-Screen Laptop has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage and uses a 12th Gen Intel processor. You’ll be touching a 1366 x 768p screen with a relatively thin bezel and flicker-free technology. The HP 15.6-Inch Touch-Screen Laptop has a battery life of over 10 hours, so you can touch and type and tap your way through a full work or school day without needing to stop for a battery top-off.
If you’re interested in the best Lenovo deals going on right now, don’t forget about the Lenovo Ideapad 3i. It is a 15.6-inch laptop with an FHD screen, Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, and a 512GB SSD hard drive. Our expert’s buying guide for laptops puts the original pricing of the Lenovo Ideapad 3i in a firm “Mainstream” price range, with the 8GB of memory being considered the “sweet spot” for a laptop. Combine this with the fact that now, on sale, the Ideapad 3i is down to an “Entry Level” price bracket and you have yourself a fine deal.
This touchscreen laptop from ASUS boasts an OLED screen, giving you the OLED monitor feel on a laptop. It provides a 2880 x 1800p resolution with a notable-for-this-price 120Hz refresh rate. At 550 nits of brightness and TUV-certified 70% blue light reduction, this is a laptop that can be used effectively at any time, day or night. While not explicitly aiming to be a gaming laptop, the 0.2ms response time of the ASUS Zenbook is sure to turn the heads of some gamers. The ASUS Zenbook 14.5-Inch runs of a 13th Gen Core i5 processor with 8GB of RAM and has 512GB of SSD storage.
One of the best gaming laptop deals at the moment, the HP Victus 15 Gaming Laptop PC is notable for its inclusion of a powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050. It’s also got a 15.6-inch screen with a Full HD resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate. It sports a backlit keyboard (and keypad) for late night gaming and advanced cooling software to keep your thighs from burning after gaming for hours. Want to keep up with your team but aren’t quite ready to buy a gaming headset? The HP Victus 15 Gaming Laptop PC has AI noise removal, so your team will hear you and not the party across the street.
Best Buy also has quite a few 2-in-1 laptop deals, with the Dell Inspiron 16 2-in-1 being the one most worthy of mentioning at the moment. It’s got an impressive 16GB of RAM, an AMD Ryzen 5 7000 series processor, and a comfortably large 16-inch touchscreen running 1920 x 1200p at 60Hz. And, with 512GB of storage to boot, you have a machine with a well-rounded stat front being offered at a price point that won’t hurt most budgets. Bonuses that make it extra worth it are a webcam that can stream in 1080p and even that most elusive of bonuses, a headphone jack, finding a home along the Dell Inspiron 16 2-in-1’s side.
This MacBook Air deal is one of the best MacBook deals going on at the moment, taking the usually quite expensive devices down to an affordable price. Our review of the MacBook Air noted the laptop’s high-quality performance despite it’s small (13.3-inch) size. To put it into perspective, we still think the MacBook Air beats the Dell XPS 13 in 2023, despite the well-renowned Dell’s high-quality performance. The MacBook Air uses the Apple M1 chip, has 8GB of memory, 256GB of SSD storage, and — interestingly enough — is fanless.
With announcements about the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2 already out, the time is high to get a good deal on the original. The original that is still found on the list for best 2-in-1 laptops for its brilliant 120Hz display and haptic touchpad. It is also enjoyed for its 2400 x 1600p screen, Intel 11th Gen i5 processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage, and 19 hour battery life. You can even grab a Surface Slim Pen 2 (which magnetically attaches to the side) to make the Surface Laptop Studio your own personal drawing pad. Our Surface Laptop Studio review goes into a lot more detail on the different modes you’ll be able to contort your Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio into. However, we’d like to highlight stage mode (shown above) where the laptop is angled up, leaving just the touchpad visible, which is great for both drawing and tapping due to how sturdy the laptop becomes in this position.
The Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 is a powerful laptop that comes highly reviewed by Best Buy customers. It is favored for its high resolution 2496 x 1664p and 15-inch screen, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage, and 17 hour battery life. Our Microsoft Surface Laptop 5 review highlighted additions like thunderbolt 4 and 3:2 aspect ratio screen. However, we’ve noted that the leap between the Surface Laptop 4 and Surface Laptop 5 isn’t as big as we might’ve hoped. However, judgements like this weren’t with a big sale going on being factored into the calculations. In other words, if your old Surface Laptop 4 is starting to show some wear and you’re wanting to stay with the same line, now is the time to buy.
