Best Laptop Deals: Amazon’s Big Spring Sale Sees Big Savings on Gaming, Work and School Laptops – CNET

It’s the final day of Amazon’s Big Spring Sale and there are great deals to be found on many different types of laptops. Whether you’re looking for something budget-friendly for work or school, or maybe a high-end gaming rig, there are a lot of excellent options across the board. To that end, we’ve found some of the best deals out there to save you the hassle. 


The Acer Aspire 3 is a solid mid-range option with budget pricing. It has a mid-range AMD Ryzen 5 7520U, which is a processor that can easily handle most productivity and day-to-day tasks. There’s also 512GB of storage and 8GB, although the latter is slightly on the lower end, which isn’t a deal breaker but something to keep in mind.


The HP 15 laptop has an entry-level Intel Core i3-1215U, which will work fine for the majority of productivity costs. It also has a large, 15.6-inch screen running an FHD resolution and, more importantly, 8GB of RAM, which is about the minimum we’d like to see. The same goes for the 256GB storage.


This configuration of the Dell Inspiron 14 is probably one of the cheapest two-in-one laptops that you’re going to find. It has a 14-inch screen with a 1,920×1,200-pixel resolution and a peak 250-nit brightness, which isn’t too bad. The AMD Ryzen 5 7530U is also an excellent mid-range processor, and while the 8GB of RAM isn’t a ton, the 512GB of storage is pretty good.


While the Acer Nitro 5 bills itself as a gaming laptop, it’s a pretty great all-around laptop. It comes with a better entry-level RTX3050 which runs a 1,920×1,080-pixel resolution screen that can hit a 144Hz refresh rate. The mid-range Intel 12th Gen Core i5 processor is also pretty great, although the 8GB of RAM is a bit on the lower end.


The Lenovo Yoga 7i is a perfect option if you want a convertible laptop with a 16-inch screen. It has a solid 2,560×1,600-pixel resolution, a midrange Intel 13th Core i5 1335U processor and 16GB of RAM, which should give you an overall smooth experience.


If you’re looking for a budget-friendly gaming laptop, the Dell G15 is an excellent option that’s regularly suggested. It comes with an RTX 4060 and an AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS processor, so it’s a good entry-to-midrange laptop. You also get a reasonable 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.


Apple’s new MacBook Air 15 is a great option if you’re looking for a thin and light laptop in the Apple ecosystem that still has a relatively large screen. It comes with an M2 chip, one generation old but still very powerful, as well as 8GB and 512GB of storage, both of which are on par with what we’d expect to see from Apple at this price. You can also get up to $825 in trade-in value.


This configuration of the Legion Slim 5 is a solid mid-tier gaming laptop, especially since it comes with an RTX 4060 and a 13th Generation Intel Core i7-13700HX Processor. It also has a pretty excellent screen, being able to hit 165Hz refresh rate and has a 2,560×1,600-pixel resolution, both of which together might tax the GPU a bit, but at least it does give you the variability to prioritize what you need.


This laptop is a solid choice for everyday users. It has 32GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, but where it shines is the 13.5-inch screen with 2,256×1,504-pixel full high-definition resolution. It’s a good size for portability and is great for staying productive or streaming content on the go.
