Dell has one of the widest selections of laptops I can think of -- you can find pretty much any laptop you're looking for at a great price. Take the Inspiron 15, a versatile Windows 11 laptop with midrange specs but a relatively budget price tag. In fact, you can grab it at Best Buy now for the discounted price of $330 rather than the usual $600.

Under the hood, you'll find an AMD Ryzen 5 7530U, a midrange processor with quite a bit of power and efficiency. Mostly, it will be enough to run productivity and day-to-day tasks, whether making spreadsheets or watching films and shows. The 8GB of RAM is a bit on the low side, but that's OK, especially if you're not a power user and don't plan to have several apps and tabs open simultaneously. On the other hand, storage is more impressive, with a 512GB solid-state drive, which we rarely see in laptops at this kind of price.

As for the display, it's a 15.6-inch touchscreen and runs at 1,920x1,080-pixel full HD resolution, which is perfect for the size and price. The build is also pretty good, as we'd expect from Dell, with very little flex in the keyboard or the monitor. Battery life will vary greatly depending on your usage, but expect around six to seven hours before recharging, which is also pretty good for this price range.

Overall, the Dell Inspiron 15 is an excellent midrange laptop if you don't need to do gaming or anything fancy, especially with the $330 price tag. That said, it's always worth checking out these laptop deals in case you find something you prefer.
