Amazon Laptop Deals
- Samsung’s 13-inch Galaxy Book2 Pro is available at Amazon for $899.99 ($400 off). This is an unbelievably thin and light device with an equally unbelievable OLED screen. It can be used in tandem with a Samsung tablet using Samsung’s Second Screen feature.

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Plus is a tried-and-true Chromebook that won’t break the bank. It should be capable of browsing and stylus use, though it’s not for power users. As a budget purchase, it does lack some amenities that most laptops these days sport, such as a backlit keyboard.
- The Razer Blade 14 is one of the lightest and most compact gaming laptops you can buy, outfitted with Razer’s signature style and classy RGB. Normally $2,799.99, it’s currently discounted to $1,999.99 at Newegg, Razer, and Best Buy. This model comes with a QHD 165Hz screen to make your games look terrific. Read our review.

While we felt that the frame rates this device delivered were a bit low for its MSRP during our testing process, it’s a much more attractive buy when discounted to this price. Read our review .
- The Acer Chromebook Spin 714 is one of the most powerful Chromebooks you can buy. An 8GB/256GB model is currently on sale for $479 (normally $729) at Best Buy. While 714’s battery life isn’t phenomenal as Chromebooks go, the garaged stylus and Thunderbolt 4 support are hard to find — especially at this low of a price point. Read our review.

- While the Surface Pro 9 is now on the market, the Surface Pro 8 is a very similar machine that’s now much easier to find at a discount. The Microsoft Surface Pro 8 with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a 120Hz screen, and an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, bundled with a black type cover, currently costs $899.99 at Best Buy, B&H, and Adorama. Normally, this bundle would cost $1,349.99. Here’s our review of the Surface Pro 8.
The Surface Pro 8 is Microsoft’s biggest upgrade in years. The excellent 2-in-1 touts Thunderbolt 4 support, a 120Hz display, a better camera, and a more modern design. This package is bundled with a black keycover.
- The MSI GP66 Leopard is usually $2,399, but it’s currently discounted to $1,569 at Walmart. This beefy gaming laptop provides powerful gaming chops, a fun RGB keyboard, and a professional chassis. It was a bit lacking on the battery life front during our review process but is a great buy if it’s going to live on your desk. Read our review.
If you need a laptop that can handle gaming but still want to stay under $800, you may like the Asus TUF Gaming 15 , currently on sale for $749 instead of $899 at Walmart. This model comes with last year’s AMD processors, but a current RTX 3050 TI GPU. We wouldn’t expect chart-topping frame rates from that combination of specs but would expect excellent battery life, especially compared to other gaming laptops.
- If you’re looking for a functional laptop in the $200 range, the Lenovo Chromebook Duet 3 is probably the best option you have. It’s currently on sale for $199 instead of $379 at Best Buy and Lenovo, and it includes a Snapdragon 7cG2 and 128GB of storage. While this isn’t going to be the most powerful laptop around, you can expect great battery life and should have no problem running a few Chrome tabs at a time. Read our review.
- Asus’ ZenBook Pro 15 OLED is discounted to $799.99 at Newegg, down from its usual $1,399.99. This laptop pairs AMD processors with Nvidia graphics and should provide significantly more power than most thin-and-lights you can find. We expect it to have fairly good battery life as 15-inchers go due to its slightly lower-resolution screen and efficient chips. There aren’t a whole lot of ports, though, which may be an issue for some of the professional target audience.
- Razer has discounted a number of its Blade gaming laptops, including the Blade 14, which is currently $2,099.99 instead of $2799.99. Read our review.
