People hear “gaming laptop” and they think they’re going to have to break the bank, but it’s not true. Lenovos 15.6 IdeaPad Gaming 3 laptop has amazing features for gamers, but works excellently as an everyday computer as well, if you also need it for work projects or school.

That’s on top of a lightning-quick 256GB M.2 NVMe solid-state drive that works alongside a 1TB 5,400 rpm hard drive.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 — $800, was $1,150
A number of us are switching our daily and work computers from laptops to tablets, and the iPad Pro is one of the devices to blame. Compared to an 11-inch iPad, this going to feel a lot more like working on a computer with that big, beautiful liquid retina screen. The home button is gone and there’s less bezel and more screen. The Pro is fast; it not only outpaces the iPad but a good deal of the laptops out there as well, thanks to an eight-core graphics processor and an A12X Bionic chip with Neural engine. The iPad Pro is also much brighter than the iPad and the TrueTone technology responds to changes of light around it with amazing precision. Apple has eliminated the scrolling lags of the iPad with the Pro’s 120hz ProMotion display refresh rate. There’s Face ID, triple the storage, killer cameras (7MP front and 12MP rear) and Magic Keyboard capabilities. Finally, there’s USB-C connection, for the faster charge and data transfers.
