The best laptop deals in 2023
Microsoft Surface Pro X
From: Woot (Amazon’s store)
Now: $619.99 ($880 off)
My jaw dropped to the floor when I first spotted this deal. Microsoft’s Surface Pro X tablet, which usually costs $1,499.99 at full price, is on sale for $549 at Woot’s Amazon store. Although this tablet weighs a featherlight 1.7 lbs, it’s still durable for such a portable device. Under the hood, you’ll find a QUalcomm-powered Microsoft SQ 2 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage. It’s powerful enough for browsing the web, writing e-mail’s, and so on and so forth. It’s not the most powerful machine in the world, but that’s not what it was designed for and at a massive $940 off, that’s a suitable trade-off. The 13-inch PixelSense touchscreen features a resolution of 2880×1920, so visuals should be relatively crisp and vibrant.
The only drawback is that it doesn’t come with a keyboard or pen. The keyboard alone will set you back $110.53, which is a bummer. That said, if you don’t mind spending extra on those accessories and can live mostly off of the web or apps in the Microsoft Store, then the Surface Pro X is a fantastic deal.
Acer Aspire 5
Now: $429 ($70 off)
Need a general use laptop with a ton of RAM? Well, the Acer Aspire 5 certainly aims to deliver. This thing is packing an Intel Core i3-1115G4 CPU, 20GB of RAM, and 512GB of NVMe SSD storage. With that amount of memory on board, you should be able to run multiple apps at once. The 15.6-inch display is quite roomy, too. It features a resolution of 1920×1080 and and an aspect ratio of 16:9. That’s perfectly suitable for day-to-day activities like browsing the web, writing e-mail’s, and so on. This is a good buy for anyone looking to save some moolah.
Samsung Chromebook Plus
Now: $199.99 ($299.01 off)
The Samsung Chromebook Plus is a good option for someone who needs a lightweight convertible. It has an Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of memory, and 32GB of eMMC storage. It’s a little light on storage and memory, but this shouldn’t be a problem if you store most of your stuff in the cloud. The 11-inch touchscreen display has a resolution of 1900×1200, and the Chromebook has two USB-C ports. It’s powerful enough for everyday browser tasks like checking e-mail, writing papers, listening to music, and so on. The 2-in-1 also weighs a little under three pounds, making it a capable travel companion. Plus, it comes with a stylus for doodling or note taking.
Microsoft Surface Laptop 4
From: Best Buy
Now: $999.99 ($200 off)
The Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 is a nice laptop for productivity or everyday use. It has an AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, AMD Radeon RX Vega 11 graphics, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage. The 15-inch display has a resolution of 2496×1664 and is touch-enabled. According to Microsoft, this machine can last up to 17 hours on a single charge. That’s positively bananas. However, with the brightness turned up, that number might be different in real world use. This is a great deal and a good pick for a student or young professional. Happy shopping.
LG Gram (2022)
Now: $1,199 ($300.99 off)
The LG Gram (2022) is the perfect laptop for frequent travelers, as it weighs just 2.54 lbs. Don’t let the lightweight form factor fool you, though. It’s packing a good amount of power in its thin frame. It has an Intel Core i7-1260P CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage. This laptop should be capable of whizzing through most tasks like checking e-mail, streaming video, spreadsheet work, and so on. The 15-inch display features super narrow bezels and a resolution of 1920×1080. Overall, this laptop is a steal, especially at $500 off. Get it now.
Acer Aspire 5 A515
Now: $309.99 ($90 off)
If you’re on the hunt for a solid everyday laptop, you’ve come to the right place. The Acer Aspire 5 has a 15.6-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of onboard SSD storage. The processor is a Ryzen 3 3350U, which has four cores, four threads, and a maximum boost to 3.5GHz. It’s packed with modern features like Wi-Fi 6, a backlit keyboard, and a fingerprint reader for biometric logins. Acer starts this laptop off with Windows 11 in S mode, but there’s no reason not to do a one-way upgrade to full Windows 11. This is being sold by a third-party retailer, but Amazon is handling shipping, which means it falls under the company’s return policy.
Microsoft Surface Pro 9
From: Best Buy
Now: $$1,299.99 ($300 off)
If you’re a regular traveler, the Microsoft Surface Pro 9 makes a fantastic travel companion, as it weighs just two pounds. It comes equipped with an Intel Core i7-1255U CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage. It’s designed with day-to-day tasks in mind, so it should have no problem handling activities like browsing the web and checking e-mail. The 13-inch display has a resolution of 2880×1920, which means you can expect a relatively vivid picture. The one downside is that it doesn’t come with a keyboard and pen. Those accessories cost extra, which sort of stinks. That said, if you’re fine with just using the tablet, then this is a good deal.
Now: $1,599.99 ($400 off)
Corsair is currently having an awesome sale on its gaming laptops. If you’re looking for a gaming laptop with a great keyboard and a fast 240Hz display, then the Corsair Voyager might be the one to pick. It sports an AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS CPU, an AMD Radeon 6800M GPU, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of PCIe NVMe SSD storage. You should be able to play most games on the High or Ultra graphics preset. The 16-inch display is the real star, though. It has a resolution of 2560×1600, a refresh rate of 240Hz, a response time of 3ms, and an aspect ratio of 16:10. You can expect gorgeous, fluid visuals. The full-sized keyboard also has Cherry MX Ultra-Low Profile mechanical switches, which have a more tactile feel to them.
HP Victus 15
Now: $1,158.99 ($61 off)
If you’re in the market for a good budget gaming laptop, the HP Victus 15 is worth considering. It features an Intel Core i7-12700H CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD. You should be able to play most games on medium or high graphics. However, we’d recommend dialing things back on newer titles. The 15-inch display has a resolution of 1920×1080 and a refresh rate of 144Hz. That means you can expect smooth, lag-free visuals. This is a really good deal. If you’re on a tight budget, you should definitely scoop this one up.
Asus ROG Flow X13 2-in-1
Now: $1,107.98 ($252.01 off)
Rarely do we see 2-in-1 gaming machines, but that’s exactly what the Asus ROG Flow X13 is. This unique machine has a 360-degree hinge, which means you can rotate the screen all the way around. The device weighs a little under three pounds, which makes it a capable traveling companion. Despite the smaller size, it still manages to pack a punch. It has an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. That’s plenty peppy for playing most games on low to medium graphics, but Asus also sells an external RTX 3080 GPU that can connect to the laptop if you need even more firepower when your stationary. The display measures 13.4-inches and has a resolution of 1920×1080. It’s not the biggest or most vibrant screen, but it’s perfectly fine for most games. This is a fantastic deal, especially if you’re looking for a gaming laptop you can travel with.
HP Omen 17
Now: $1,199.99 ($800 off)
If you want to save a ton of cash on a gaming laptop, the HP Omen 17 is a whopping $800 off at Microcenter. Inside you’ll find an Intel Core i7-12700H CPU, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage. That’s a good amount of power, so this laptop should have no problem running most games on the High or Ultra graphics preset. The 17.3-inch display features a resolution of 2560×1440, a refresh rate of 165Hz, and a response time of 3ms. It’s not the brightest display in the world at 300 nits, but visuals should be sharp enough for most games. This is a banger of a deal. Get it now.
Laptop deal buying tips
If you’ve shopped online before for laptop deals you’re probably aware that there’s a vast range of laptop configurations available.
A good place to start is with the processor. Buy laptops with Intel 11-series Core chips or higher, such as the Core i5-11510U, or the Core i7-12800H; or go with an AMD Ryzen processor (but not an AMD Athlon or A-series chip). Avoid laptops with Pentium or Celeron processors unless it’s a Chromebook (running Chrome OS). You’re going to need to pay attention with gaming laptops, too, as some GPUs, like the RTX 3050 Ti, don’t offer much boost over their RTX 2xxx-series cousins, and Nvidia has dropped the Max-Q designation on certain low-power options. Our laptop CPU and GPU cheat sheet can help you shop smart.
Display resolution is a gotcha. If you see a laptop labeled as “HD” resolution that means 1366-by-768 and often isn’t worth your time for a laptop under 13 inches unless the deal is absolutely standout. What you want is “Full HD” or “FHD,” which means 1080p.
Don’t buy laptops with under 4GB of RAM or 128GB of SSD storage—though on a Chromebook, this configuration is acceptable. We have more explanation in our laptops versus Chromebooks buying guide, as well as in our primer on how to buy a budget laptop without getting screwed. Also watch out for eMMC storage, which is something we don’t recommend for a Windows laptop but works fine for a Chromebook.
Reviews can be helpful. Even if you can’t find a review of a specific configuration, try related models. They’ll often give you a good idea of the build quality and performance. Also buy from brands you trust. Amazon’s daily laptop deals right now are full of brands we’ve never tested or talked to (Broage, Teclast, DaySky, Jumper) and it’s just a good idea to be wary.
Most older laptops will run Windows 10, and that’s fine—there’s no rush to upgrade. Windows 10 in S Mode, though annoying, can be switched out of easily if you find it on a budget laptop. If you want to buy a Windows 10 PC with the intent of upgrading it to Windows 11, we recommend you start here with a list of older laptops that are Windows 11-eligible.
