The best laptop deals ahead of President’s Day

Under $500


Samsung Chromebook 4: $245.99 $128 at Walmart
The Samsung Chromebook 4 is usually more expensive than similar devices so we tend to pass on it, but it’s still got a strong discount this week at Walmart. It’s almost identical to the Lenovo above with the same 4GB of RAM and 32GB storage, but you do get an Intel processor instead. The longer battery life of up to 12.5 hours may also suit those who are more on the go.


Lenovo Chromebook Duet: $299.99 $229.99 at Lenovo
Save $70 –
The small yet impressive Lenovo Chromebook Duet is down to a terrific low price. That’s just $30 away from the all-time low over Black Friday. The tiny 10.3-inch 2-in-1 laptop is designed with portability in mind thanks to its size and the mighty battery life that lasted almost a full 22 hours in our testing. This is the machine you want if you’re always on the go.


HP 15z laptop: $469.99 $299.99 at HP
Save $170
– For those on a smaller budget but still want to come away with a great value laptop this is HP 15z is a solid option for under $300. It’s a great choice if you need a machine for light use and basic work. The real highlight is that it still comes with 8GB RAM, which will ensure good performance despite the weaker processor. You also get a 128GB SSD for speedy access for files and quick load times for applications.


Lenovo ThinkPad 11e Yoga: $1,029 $349 at Lenovo
Save $680
– It’s a ridiculous saving on this laptop in Lenovo’s early Presidents’ Day deals. A lot of power is packed into the tiny 11-inch frame for the price, too, including 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD to give the device a significant performance boost. It’s something you don’t usually find for this cheap, which is why this offer stands out.


HP Chromebook x360: $359.99 $259.99 at HP
Save $100
– While this may look expensive for a Chromebook, we actually think it’s a terrific deal when you factor in the fact this is a 2-in-1 laptop with a 14-inch touch screen. If you chose to pay a lot less you’d usually find only 11-inch machines with no touch capabilities and worse components. This x360 has a basic but decent AMD processor as well as 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage – fine for light use or schoolwork.


Lenovo IdeaPad 3: $219.99 $179 at Amazon
Save $40
– This Lenovo IdeaPad 3 was down to an all-time low price at Amazon over the holiday sales period. But while it’s now only $36 off, it’s still a decent price for a machine with an 11-inch screen, Intel Celeron processor and 4GB RAM that make it best suited to the simplest work or school tasks. The jump to 64GB of storage is a welcome boost if you don’t want to rely too much on the cloud for your files.


Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Laptop: $568.98 $349.99 at Dell
Save $194.99
– There’s a massive $200 off this powerful and excellent value Dell laptop deal this week. It’s a limited-time deal, though, so it’s one you’ll want to grab sooner rather than later. This solid all-purpose device features an Intel i3 processor, 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD. That amount of RAM is terrific at this price, giving you a big boost to the laptop’s performance that will make it so much easier when doing general home or work tasks.


HP 15t laptop: $599.99 $419.99 at HP
Save $180
– Our pick for the best laptop deal in the HP Presidents’ Day sale. This is a huge discount on a machine that comes with an Intel i5 processor, 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD – you won’t find a cheaper laptop with all of these top components. It’ll power through everyday tasks and hold its own with more demanding work or multitasking.


Asus VivoBook 15 laptop: $479.99 $429.99 at Amazon
Save $50 – The Asus Vivobook 15 is one of our favorite budget laptops on the market and this Core i3, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD model is on sale right now at Amazon. With specs like these, you’ll get a decent level of performance out of this machine if you’re looking for an everyday driver. It won’t quite beat an i5 equipped machine, but it’ll easily outperform the cheaper Celeron and Pentium options above.

Over $500

Microsoft Surface Pro 7+: $999.99 $599.99 at Walmart
Save $400
– This Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ deal is even better value than it looks at first glance because it includes the pricey Type Cover accessory as part of the bundle for no additional cost. You also get an i3 processor along with 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD – that’s a very strong specification for work and everyday browsing. It’s a great price for the added portability and flexibility of a Surface device that we haven’t seen beaten for a while.


HP 15t laptop: $749.99 $579.99 at HP
Save $170
– If you need a bit more power than the Lenovo laptop in this price bracket then you can spend a little extra here to come away with a big performance boost. For those who want to do more demanding jobs or multitask with even more ease then you’ll appreciate the jump to an i7 processor and 16GB of RAM here. The Lenovo is such good value for money though that you shouldn’t need to upgrade for general use.
