Looking for a new laptop can be time-consuming, not to mention mind-boggling. You have to make so many hardware and software decisions, and it can feel like you’re comparing apples and oranges. That wasn’t meant as a Mac pun, but it does bring up the fact that you even have to choose your operating system. Even after you narrow your choices, it can be even tougher to narrow down the best laptop deals.

We’ve tried to make looking for new laptop deals easier. Below we’ve rounded up some of the best options that can be had right now, and we’ve split our deals up by manufacturer as well.
Featured deal: $310 off the Gateway Ultra Slim Notebook
Gateway isn’t the biggest name in the laptop game, so if brand recognition is your priority then skip on to the deal roundup below. But if you’re all about the specs then you’ll struggle to find a better deal than the Gateway Ultra Slim Notebook, which is now on offer for just $439 ($310 off) from Walmart.
This 15.6-inch Full HD laptop is substance over style, although is it available in four jazzy colors. A 10th-gen Intel Core i5 processor and 256GB SSD come as standard, with the 16GB of RAM making it ideal for handling multiple applications or reams of browser tabs with ease. A microSD slot allows you to expand the storage by another 512GB.
Tuned by THX Audio, a fingerprint scanner, and Bluetooth 5.1 complete the package. It’s not a gaming or graphic design machine, but this price drop makes it an attractive budget option for most any other user.
There’s no indication how long this offer will last, so check it out while you can via the widget below.

Lenovo has been leading the laptop scene for as long as it’s been around, holding the title as one of the top producers in the world. It’s created many well-known product lines, but none more so than the fabled Yoga 2-in-1s. The Yoga name has even begun to leak into other lines such as the powerful ThinkPads which are built for productivity. Many of Lenovo’s high-end machines feature unique hinge designs that blend beauty and strength.

Dell laptop deals
While Lenovo may ship more units, Dell may be the most recognizable name in American laptops. From the near-perfect XPS line to the accessible Inspiron series, Dell has an option for every consumer. It even covers durable Chromebooks for students with the Chromebook 3100. Although our Dell deals don’t share too many features, that just means you have a wider variety of choices.

It’s also worth a look at some of the latest refurbished deals you can get from Dell. You can often save as much as 40% or more on a variety of models, especially if you check out the coupons and deals section.
Microsoft Surface deals
Microsoft’s flexible 2-in-1s are its bread and butter. The Surface Pro 7 and Surface Pro X are the latest in a long line of powerful options, though each has a different purpose. If you opt for the Surface Pro 7, you’re getting a machine that’s built for full-sized apps and can handle Photoshop like a breeze. The Surface Pro X, on the other hand, is built for cloud-based apps and offers an LTE connection that you can take anywhere you want.

Other laptop deals
If we tried to give each manufacturer its own section we’d be here all day. There are so many options out there that we couldn’t list them all before the deals started to end. With that in mind, we’re putting some of our “best of the rest” deals in this section.
We’ve added some Samsung options, an Apple deal, and a Razer pick as well. You’ll have to check each deal for the full rundown of specs, but there’s bound to be one that meets your needs.
