One of the best Chromebook deals at the moment, the HP 15.6-Inch Chromebook is a great machine for internet browsing, getting connected with friends, and working on documents. It has a 1366 x 768p resolution with Intel UHD graphics and 8GB of RAM. Instead of using an SSD, this Chromebook uses an eMMC — it’s an embedded form of storage similar to what is in your smartphone — that carries 64GB of space. Luckily, cloud storage should work quickly and you’ll be using WiFi 6 fast internet with this Chromebook. The HP 15.6-Inch Chromebook also adapts well to college student laptop needs, or for those of us with a night owl lifestyle. It’s got a backlit keyboard and a webcam adapted for low light environments.

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.

Lenovo Yoga 7i — $500, was $800

Whenever you explore the best Lenovo laptops, you’ll likely find a ‘Yoga’ line product in the mix. They’re affordable 2-in-1 laptops that look right as traditional laptops when not folded, as well. This version has an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, and 512GB of SSD storage, which is pretty typical of the price range. The screen resolution — WUXGA, or 1920 x 1200p — is definitely pulling above average for the price, and especially so for the sale price. Ever more so considering it is a touchscreen. All in all, this is the perfect device for the solopreneur that wants to type documents all day then kick back in bed with a bit of Netflix before sleep.

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.

MacBook Air — $750, was $1,000

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.

HP ENVY x360 14 2-in-1 — $780, was $1,080

One of the best 2-in-1 laptops, the HP ENVY x360 2-in-1 has an impressive Intel Core i7 processor, a powerful 16GB memory, and an almost unheard of 1TB of SSD storage. Even before this deal, we’ve considered the HP ENVY x360 14 a “killer deal” for how much comes with it. Beyond those impressive stats, it includes a 5MP camera with a privacy shutter, WiFi 6, a backlit keyboard, and a fingerprint reader. It’s basically everything you need in a modern laptop, with room to keep you satisfied for several years into the future.

On sale right now, we have the best version of the ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 you can buy, and it’s not the one with the most intensive hardware in the lineup. Confused? Our ASUS ROG Zephyrus M16 review gave the laptop an incredible 4.5/5 stars with very few negatives. The salient negative? The reviewer’s copy had an RTX 4090! Still confused? In our reviewer’s mind, an RTX 4090 was just too much for this size of laptop, with the RTX 4070 version of the laptop being considered more appropriate. And that’s what we bring to you today, on sale, the RTX 4070 version, with an Intel 13th Gen Core i9 processor, 16GB of memory, and a 1TB SSD hard drive to back it up. The review — which you should read — also praises the laptop for tis excellent keyboard and ROG Nebula HDR display.
