For those people who are constantly on the go, grabbing a thin and light laptop makes life a lot easier, especially since they tend to weigh a lot less while also having very capable performance. Unfortunately, that does come at a bit of an extra cost, so we’re happy to see this deal from LG on the UltraPC laptop that knocks it down to just $700 from its usual price of $1,000. That’s an excellent price for a laptop that can outperform competitors at the same price range, even with the discounted price.

Why you should buy the LG UltraPC laptop

This new version of the Ultra PC is a big upgrade on the previous LG UltraPC laptop and follows the same lineup of LG’s very thin laptops like the LG Gram 17, so LG has quite a lot of experience in this market. That’s pretty obvious by the fact that the UltraPC has a tiny 0.64-inch thickness, making it thinner than many books. It doesn’t lose out on other features, though, and it still comes with a pretty substantial 16-inch screen that runs a modified FHD resolution of 1920 x 1200, which may be a bit low for such a nice laptop, but it’s not a dealbreaker if it helps keep the price down. The keyboard is also great to use, and while the previous version of the UltraPC had a comically small touchpad, this new one is a lot more substantial and useful.

As for performance, you get an AMD Ryzen 7 7730U CPU under the hood, which is a higher-end processor that should easily handle most productivity tasks without too much issue, and you might even get by with some creative work as well. Unfortunately, there’s no discrete GPU on this, so things like complex graphical rendering might be difficult and time-consuming, but as a general-use, work, and school laptop, its performance is more than enough. We’re also happy to see that it comes with a solid 16GB of RAM that will give you a better day-to-day experience, especially if you tend to open a lot of apps and tabs at the same time.

Overall, the LG UltraPC is probably one of the better thin and light laptops you’ll find, especially if you’re especially interested in how thin a laptop you can get. You can pick it up right now directly from LG for $700, although if it doesn’t quite tickle your fancy, be sure to check out some of these other great laptop deals as well.

My unique wireless keyboard-with-trackpad is now just $22
The Logitech K400 Plus on top of pillow.

Lately, I've been sporting a delightful laptop and projector combo for my nighttime YouTube viewing. It's a weird technicality that lets me get "less screen time" and promotes just watching the video over browsing the same eight sites in rotation. The unfortunate problem I encountered, however, was that I had to keep my laptop close by and even use it to control what content I watch. An unlikely answer to my woes came in the form of the Logitech K400 Plus, pictured above. It's a unique keyboard and trackpad combo that's total wireless, has some unique features, and is on a massive sale. While I recall paying the full price of $40 for it, you can get yours for just $22 (a savings of $18) now by tapping the button below. Or, keep reading to see the sneaky features that make this so great.

Why you should buy the Logitech K400 Plus
Despite initially hesitating to buy the Logitech K400 Plus, it has turned into something I use nightly, with its USB-A connector taking a near-permanent spot in my laptop. The trackpad is easy to navigate with and, much like I can be accused of having two left feet, it has two left mouse buttons. If you see the bright yellow button in the top left, that's a secondary left mouse button you can use if you want to dual-hand the keyboard like a controller.

Samsung’s 57-inch 4K monitor is $800 off for Memorial Day
The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 57-inch mini-LED gaming monitor placed on a desk.

There are a lot of excellent uses for widescreen monitors, and one of the best is using them for better immersion when playing video games. Of course, some of the best widescreen monitors really need to run on high-end gaming PCs with powerful GPUs, like the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9. If you do have something like an RTX 4090, then you're in luck because not only is the Odyssey Neo G9 one of the best monitors on the market, but Samsung has also discounted it heavily down to$1,700 from the original $2,500.

Why you should buy the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9
This massive 57-inch widescreen monitor runs a 7,680 x 2,160 resolution, so you can really crank the visual quality if you want to get the best graphics you want. Alternatively, you could take advantage of the very impressive 240Hz refresh rate at max resolution, which is a difficult thing to achieve, so it's only really found in more expensive monitors. You'll also be happy to know that you get a 1ms GtG response time that's perfect for competitive gamers and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro to help avoid screen tears or ghosting when running it at higher refresh rates. The 1000R curved screen will also help quite a bit with immersion when gaming.

Samsung’s 49-inch Odyssey gaming monitor is $500 off right now

If you have a high-end gaming PC that runs something like an RTX 4090, then you'll likely want to pair it with a high-end screen that can take full advantage of all the power you have under the hood. That not only means grabbing something with high resolution but something that can also handle a high refresh rate. Luckily, the Samsung Odyssey G9 can handle both, and more on top of that, given that it's an ultra-widescreen. Of course, it does go for an eye-watering $1,300 at MSRP, but this Memorial Day weekend deal from Samsung brings it down to a more reasonable $800.

Why you should buy the Samsung Odyssey G9
The massive 49-inch, 1000R curved Samsung Odyssey G9 has an absolute ton of tech under the hood, the least of which is the 5,120 x 1,440 resolution and lightning-fast 240Hz refresh rate. Given that it runs at 1440p, that means it won't tax a card like an RTX 4090 at a higher refresh rate, and if you absolutely love action-packed racing and FPS games, then you should manage to get relatively close to a 200FPS, even with higher graphical settings. Even if you have something like an RTX 4080, you should still be able to make some compromises here and there to get you either to higher graphical settings or higher FPS.
