Unless you're a professional programmer or a serious artist, chances are you don't need to spend thousands on a high-end laptop. These days, affordable models, and even some Chromebooks, have all the hardware you need for browsing, streaming and other day-to-day tasks, and you don't need to break the bank to get your hands on one. Right now, Woot is offering up to 46% off Lenovo IdeaPad and ThinkPad laptops, and you can get your hands on one for as little as $100. This sale runs through Thursday, March 23, but Woot generally has a limited supply available, so some models may sell out before then.

There's a few different models available at this sale, so no matter your needs and your budget, you'll find what you're looking for at a discount. If you just need the most basic functions of web browsing, you can pick up this IdeaPad Chromebook for just $100, which is $50 off the usual price. It has a compact 11.6-inch HD display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage and uses Google's user-friendly Chrome OS. 

Or, for $70 more, you can upgrade to this IdeaPad S150. In addition to a larger 14-inch display and double the built-in storage, it operates using Windows 10 Home, so it's compatible with a wider range of applications. And the most advanced laptop you'll find at this sale is the ThinkPad X390, which typically lists for $850, but is currently on sale for just $600. It features a 13.3-inch full HD display, and comes equipped with an Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB solid-state drive. It also comes with some other helpful features like a built-in webcam and SD card reader. It operates using Windows 10 Pro, but also supports Windows 11 if you want to upgrade.
