HP

This 15.6-inch Pavilion model, sold directly from HP, alleviates our RAM and SSD problems. It provides 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD, as well as a 10th generation Core i7 CPU. And it’s customizable, so you can spend an additional reasonable $ 30 to upgrade your display to a Full HD panel. A free upgrade is also available for a 512GB SSD with 32GB of fast Optane memory.

HP’s premium, slim and lightweight, two-in-one convertible laptop is stylish and lightweight. It has an all-metal design and a razor-thin rim for a compact chassis that is less than 3 pounds. You can save $ 250 on this model, which features an 11th-generation Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. The 13.3-inch touch screen has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and can be set to tablet mode by rotating 360 degrees.

Walmart

If you are a certain age, you can recall the name of the Gateway and its computers that came in black and white cow print boxes. Gateway has returned to Walmart as a line of cheap laptops and tablets. But on store shelves, you won’t find any of the models in iconic cow packaging; the new Gateway laptops are only available online. This 14-inch Gateway laptop has a 10th generation Intel Core i5 CPU and 16GB of RAM. You get a 256GB solid state drive for storage. Storage capacity is average for the price, but the amount of memory is double the supply. And it gets a full HD (1,920×1080 pixels) display, which is better than the 1,366×768 pixel panels found on other budget laptops. There is also a fingerprint reader for easy, secure login. Currently, all four color options are in stock and for sale – black, blue, green and rose gold.

Walmart

Take the model above, expand the display from 14.1 inches to 15.6 inches, and increase your savings to $ 300 to achieve the same selling price. If you work from home or study at home and commute less, the properties with added screens will exceed the added size and bulk amount.

Dell

This incredibly slim gaming laptop has a 15.6-inch 1080p display and a crazy 300Hz refresh rate provided by a 10th generation Intel Core i7-10875H CPU, 32GB of RAM and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 graphics. The only nitpick for this configuration is the 512GB SSD, which seems a bit small due to the high price and other high-end components.

Lenovo

You can save more than $ 2,000 with the Lenovo featured ThinkPad code THINKING2. It has a 10th generation Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB solid state drive. The 14-inch display offers full HD resolution and 400 nits of brightness.

You can save a package to the best Windows two in one tablet. This Surface Pro 7 model has a $ 430 discount and includes a 10th generation Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. The 12.3-inch touch screen has a sharp resolution of 2736×1 824 pixels. Read our Microsoft Surface Pro 7 overview.

The Microsoft MacBook clone has a slim and lightweight, fantastic touchpad and keyboard combination and offers a significant performance boost over the 2018 Surface Laptop 2. The 2,496×1,664-pixel, 13.5-inch touchscreen delivers standard Full HD resolution. This Surface Laptop 3 model features a 10th generation Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, Intel Iris Plus graphics and a 256GB SSD. The biggest downside to CNET was its relatively short battery life, but that’s less of an issue if you don’t take it out of your home. Read the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 overview.

It is thin and light and runs all day. And special offer. The LG Gram 15 is impressively compact for a 15.6-inch laptop, weighs 2.4 pounds and weighs just 0.7 inches. The large 72Whr battery lasts for 21 hours. The display of this model does not support touch, but contains full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution. Inside, it offers a 10th generation Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.

The Dell G5 15 won the Editors’ Choice Award for Budget Gaming Laptops late last year. It delivers outstanding performance for the money, and its battery life isn’t as awful as most gaming laptops. At nearly $ 400, this model features a 10th generation Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics. The 15.6-inch display has full HD (1,920×1080 pixels) resolution and a fast 144 Hz refresh rate and is rated for 300 nit brightness. Read our Dell G5 15 review.

Last year’s XPS 13 model is still a powerhouse. Missing the slightly larger 13.4-inch display and the latest version of this long-loved favorite of 11th-generation Intel processors, you can save $ 250 on this 2019 mid-range configuration that includes a 13.3-inch display on a 10th-generation Core with i7 CPU and 8 GB RAM. Read the Dell XPS 13 overview.

Important to note: This is not the new M1 MacBook Air sale that showed impressive results in our first test round. This is the Intel-based Air, which was unveiled back in March. This means it won’t be that fast and the battery won’t last that long. But it will be able to run the last Big Sur operating system and could be $ 149 less than the latest model.

Best shopping

Yes, the relatively light specifications of the 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM take a break here. But you still get a capable 15-inch Asus laptop powered by a GTX 1650 Ti graphics card – not too shabby for $ 600.

HP

This is a high-performance configuration by Chromebook standards: You won’t find a budget CPU or a small amount of RAM here. This HP Chromebook has a Core i3 processor and 8GB of memory. The 14-inch display, which can be rotated in tablet mode, has full HD (1,920×1080 pixels) resolution, where most Chromebooks only provide 768p panels.

Best shopping

It’s not a gaming PC, but the specifications are better suited to everyday needs. And it still has a capable Intel Core i5 and a swivel 360 touch screen.

Best shopping

There are the same concerns here as above regarding tight RAM and SSD specifications. But that’s $ 50 less than a PS5 or Xbox Series X, you’ll hardly find both this season. This store is no longer available online, but can be found in stores.

Lenovo

Windows laptop at the price of a Chromebook. This 15.6-inch laptop runs Windows 10 and includes a Core i5 CPU, 12GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. At this price, at best, we can expect a Core i3 chip with 4GB of RAM, so this budget model is definitely above its weight. Unfortunately, the display has a resolution of only 1,366×768 pixels.

This Specter x360 is available at Best Buy for $ 500 and features a 15.6-inch 4K touchscreen with a 10th-generation Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and GeForce MX330 graphics. With a spacious, high-resolution display, it would be a versatile laptop for work at home, which could also be used as a tablet in the evening to play games, stream movies and shows.
