As laptop manufacturers begin to roll out their, now is a good time to scoop up a model from last year at a discount. With and at at the beginning of the year, retailers are slashing prices on current models to make way for upcoming computers with the latest chips.
The best deals I see this week are at Best Buy, where you can save $200 on Dell’s latest Inspiron 2-in-1 14 convertible or Samsung’s sleek Galaxy Book Pro laptop. At Amazon, you can knock almost $500 off the price of the LG Gram 17 or get an Asus VivoBook 15 with an OLED display for an unbelievably low price. I’ve also included other strong deals I’ve found at Amazon, Best Buy and Newegg.
Check out the options below, which are regularly updated as sales expire and new deals emerge.

OLED for the masses! This midrange laptop from Asus boasts a 15.6-inch OLED display with 1,920×1,080-pixel resolution. Not only is it a step up from budget models that make you get by with a 720p screen, but it’s also got an OLED panel that delivers stellar contrast. It’s also thinner and lighter than any 15-inch budget model. Based on an 11th-gen Core i5 CPU and featuring 12GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, it has more memory and double the storage capacity that you’ll find in most budget laptops. It also has both Type-A and Type-C USB ports, saving you from having to carry around an adapter. It’s a good deal at its $800 list price and an even better deal at its current discount.
Dell’s entry-level Inspiron has an admittedly drab, plastic chassis, but it serves up a full-HD (1,920×1,080-pixel), 15.6-inch touch display powered by an 11th-gen, quad-core Core i5 processor along with 16GB of RAM and a huge 1TB SSD. That’s double the memory and storage space you usually find at this price.
Dell’s latest 14-inch convertible boasts a modern, all-metal design that blurs the line between the company’s premium XPS line and its mainstream Inspiron machines. And it’s available in a rainbow of colors. This discount model has what Dell calls a Pebble Green chassis. Inside, it supplies AMD’s octa-core Ryzen 7 5825U CPU along with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.
Samsung’s midrange Galaxy Book delivers a sleek, all-metal chassis at a price where plastic enclosures are usually on order. Inside, this 15.6-inch laptop is powered by an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The touch display is only so-so, but the Galaxy Book is otherwise a great value with its high style and solid mix of components at its current sale price at Best Buy.

This budget-to-midrange laptop from HP may have an uninspired plastic enclosure, but if you care more about screen size, memory allotment and storage space than you do about a sleek design, then this model is worth checking out. It should offer decent performance, too, with double the RAM and solid-state storage usually included on most other laptops at this price. At this price, you can usually find 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, but sometime less. In that light, the 32GB of memory and the 1TB SSD here are downright thrilling. You also get a full-HD (1,920×1,080-pixel) resolution for the roomy 17.3-inch display.
This 15-inch Pavilion 15 offers a well-rounded configuration for the money. Its 15.6-inch, full HD display is powered by an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. It features a basic, plastic chassis but it’s fairly thin with a sleek, brushed aluminum finish. It also supplies both USB-A and USB-C ports so you don’t have to carry a dongle with you to connect your USB devices.
Lenovo’s latest premium two-in-one convertible delivers the Intel Evo platform inside a thin yet durable all-metal chassis. This discounted model features an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, Intel Iris Xe graphics and a 512GB SSD. The 14-inch touchscreen can rotate 360 degrees into tablet mode to be tapped, swiped and drawn on with the included active pen.

Most 17-inch laptops are gaming monsters. The LG Gram 17 is neither a gaming laptop nor a monster. It lacks dedicated graphics to drive 3D games but is only 0.7 inch thick and weighs less than 3 pounds, making this 17.3-inch desktop replacement roughly the same weight as your typical 13.3-inch ultraportable. The spacious 2,560×1,600-pixel display is powered by an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and integrated Intel Iris Plus graphics. You also get a roomy 1TB SSD for storage and can save nearly $500 on it right now.
