Whether you’re a hardcore gamer, a working-from-home parent, a student with too many classes, or a sentient 21st-century individual, everyone needs a laptop. Not to mention the people who have a laptop but need one new Laptop. Or a second Laptop. The point is: laptops! There are countless great offers for you at any given time, for every possible brand and every possible model. Let us point you to some of this month’s best products, like this awesome $120 Chromebook – at almost 50% off, it’s less than the price of a nice dinner – or a Macbook Air for just $896 (instead of $999) . How about it? 60% discount a Lenovo IdeaPad 3? Let’s go!

The best Chromebook deals of April 2023

This Samsung Chromebook 4 is a few years old, but it’s still a great option (for a backup, bedroom, or kitchen) if you don’t need something with a ton of power. Chromebooks are ideal for just browsing the web, hanging out on social media, and handling a light workload, especially if you’re using Google’s suite of tools like Sheets or Docs.

It’s hard for us to find a greater compliment than this buyer’s: “Best computer I’ve ever used.”

With 256GB of onboard storage, 8GB of RAM and Windows 11 preinstalled, this IdeaPad 3 is a real workhorse. It can handle large Excel spreadsheets and more labor-intensive tasks than a Chromebook, making it perfect for a new home office device. And while hardcore gamers should look elsewhere (due to the lack of a dedicated GPU), you won’t find a dreamier marriage of performance and budget-friendliness than right here.

One five-star reviewer said, “I needed a laptop to take the bar exam because I couldn’t download the exam software onto my work laptop. I had bought a Microsoft Surface laptop in the past and while they are super sleek, light weight and the screen quality is great, twice I’ve had laptops break and fail. And that’s about $1,000. This laptop is a bit heavy and the screen resolution isn’t the best, but it seems like a reliable machine – and for the money, a BUY PLACE. I love the feel of the keyboard and trackpad. Great laptop.”

The best Macbook deals of April 2023

The 2020 MacBook Air is an impressive machine. Powered by the M1 chip, it has 8GB RAM and 256GB storage – plenty of space for your photos and videos. It’s got enough power to edit videos on the go and an all-day battery so you don’t have to worry about running out of juice. At $799, this is the lowest price this laptop has ever had.

One user said this machine trumps all Windows: “This is the best laptop I’ve ever owned and I’ve owned about 20 or more. For most people, this 2020 model will be more than enough: great battery life, great display, excellent Mac OS and UI, sturdy build quality, easy portability… and I love the aluminum body. I also own four Windows 11 laptops, which are also great laptops, but this Mac tops them.”

The best gaming laptop deals in April 2023

Gaming laptops generally fall into one of two camps: affordable but underpowered, or powerful and way over budget. This ROG Strix Scar 15 finds the sweet spot between the two. With a $500 discount, it packs a state-of-the-art RTX 3080 graphics card, along with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB solid state drive to store your entire Steam library. We’ve never seen this laptop at such a bargain price, and we probably never will.

“It can run any game you throw at it. Now I want to mention that the cooling could probably be better; this thing tends to get a little hot. But I built a laptop table with fans in it for this thing to sit on, and it drastically helps with the overheating problem, if you even want to call it that. However, that’s me trying to find something to complain about,” said one five-star reviewer. “This machine was built to last and the fact that it has empty slots to add more RAM and additional storage?
