You can pick up the ASUS VivoBook E2023 for $179, or $50 off, right now. This ultra-portable, thin laptop is a steal for anyone who doesn't mind trading power for portability. It weighs only 2.2 pounds while sporting a 11.6-inch screen and up to 10 hours of battery life.
But it's got two drawbacks. 64GB of storage is pretty limited, for one, and it comes with Windows 10 S, which supports a limited amount of third-party software. (You can upgrade for free to full Windows 10, but that requires extra legwork.) Still, the device provides all the key productivity you could need while in class or running around campus.
