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.

Speaking of Chromebooks, the slightly cheaper Asus Chromebook Flip CM3 is on sale for $199.99 at Amazon (down from $329.99). This one only comes with a MediaTek processor and 32GB of storage, though, so we wouldn’t recommend it for more than casual use.

  • The MSI GP66 Leopardis usually $2,399, but it’s currently discounted to $1,499 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.

This configuration of the 15-inch GP66 Leopard from MSI pairs an RTX 3080 with an Intel i7-11800H CPU.

  • 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. 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.

  • 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.

The ZenBook Pro 15 OLED pairs an OLED screen with powerful AMD specs and discrete graphics. You can use it for on-the-go graphic work.

  • If you’re a gamer and want the world to know it, the MSI GE66 Raider is currently available at Newegg and Amazon for $1,799.99 instead of its usual $2,199.99. The GE66 Raider is decked out with flashy RGB, including a customizable keyboard and a colorful light strip that runs along the bottom edge. Read our review.
