There’s never a bad time to pick up a new laptop, and Prime Day means you’re pretty much out of excuses. You can find discounts on all makes and models of laptops or Chromebooks and across all price ranges. This time, we’re sticking to a few affordable picks to help you maximize your savings. Here are just a few Prime Day laptop deals for under $500.
The Acer Aspire 5 consistently makes the list of our favorite laptops, especially when you see its price tag. Right now, you can grab one with Intel’s 10th-gen Core i3 processor for $319.99 ($110 off). You’ll also get 4GB of DDR4 RAM to work with and a 128GB SSD to keep you moving. Acer’s Aspire 5 has plenty of ports, so you can go on and pick up a new mouse or keyboard while you’re at it.
If you want to maximize your savings, it’s tough to top the $200 price cut off Samsung’s Chromebook Plus V2. It would normally run you $499.99, but you can grab it right now for just $299.99. You’re looking at an Intel Celeron processor tucked away inside, as well as 4GB of memory and 32GB of eMMC storage. While it may not sound like a lot, that’s more than enough to keep the light and fast Chrome OS up to speed.
Another traditional clamshell laptop worth looking at is the Lenovo IdeaPad 1 for $199 ($56 off). It packs a unique 14-inch display, along with Intel’s Celeron N4020 processor. Lenovo’s budget-friendly machine makes a great first laptop for just about anyone thanks to the approachable size, and it has multiple USB-A ports to choose from. The Ice Blue finish is pretty sleek, too.
Now, those of you hoping for a more flexible machine will want to turn to Chrome OS for your laptop deals of choice. Lenovo’s Flex 5 with its 10th-generation Intel Core i3 processor is down to $309.99 ($120 off). It packs a punch for a Chromebook, with 64GB of eMMC storage to go along with 4GB of DDR4 RAM. Maybe best of all is the 13-inch touchscreen — it packs a sharp Full HD resolution that’s great for just about any streaming you can imagine.
Our last cheap laptop deal for Prime Day is another great way to save big bucks. Acer is knocking its light and flexible Chromebook Spin 311 down to just $224.99 for the shopping holiday ($274 off). It matches plenty of the competitors with its Intel Celeron N4020 processor, and the small 11.6-inch screen makes it a great Chromebook for those on the go. If you want tons of screen real estate, you may have to look elsewhere. However, it’s tough to beat portability and price.
