If you're of a certain age, you may recall the Gateway name and its computers that shipped in black-and-white cow-print boxes. Gateway has returned as a line of low-cost laptops and tablets at Walmart. But you won't find any of the models on store shelves in their iconic cow packaging; the new Gateway laptops are available online only. This 14-inch Gateway laptop features a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU and 16GB of RAM. You get a 256GB solid-state drive for storage. The storage capacity is average for the price, but the amount of memory is double what is usually on offer. And you get a full HD (1,920x1,080-pixel) display, which is better than the 1,366x768-pixel panels found on other budget laptops. There's also a fingerprint reader for easy, secure logins.
Take the above model, expand the screen from 14.1 to 15.6 inches and get a massive $330 in savings. If you're working or learning from home and commuting less, the added screen real estate outweighs the added heft and bulk.
This 15.6-inch laptop from Acer supplies double the storage capacity usually found at this price, with a 512GB SSD rather than the more typical 256GB on offer. It also features a 10th-gen Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM. The 15.6-inch display also checks the box for full HD resolution.
This slightly discounted 15-inch laptop from HP makes the list because it provides a modern Intel CPU and a full HD display for a reasonable sum. The 15.6-inch screen has a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution and the machine is powered by an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU, integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics and 8GB of RAM. A 256GB SSD provides a moderate amount of storage.
Dell's top-end Inspiron 7000 laptop boasts an all-aluminum chassis that's thinner, lighter and sturdier than the midrange Inspiron 5000 that features metal lids and keyboard decks but flimsy plastic bottom panels. This sale model features a 14.5-inch, 2,560x1,600-pixel display powered by a 11th-gen Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.
Lenovo's budget Yoga two-in-one convertible features a unique mix of plastic, aluminum and fabric. The bottom panel is made of plastic, but the top is aluminum with a fabric cover for an upscale look. Inside, it features an AMD Ryzen 4000 series CPU, an ample 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 13.3-inch touchscreen features a full HD 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution.
The highlight of this two-in-one convertible is not its ability to move between laptop and tablet modes but its OLED screen, which should exhibit deep blacks for stellar contrast. It also boasts a 4K (3,840x2,160-pixel) resolution so it should also be incredibly crisp. The system is built on the Intel Evo platform with an 11th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics and a 512GB SSD.
With a slightly bigger screen and smaller body, Dell's new XPS 13 continues its steady march towards laptop perfection. This heavily discounted convertible two-in-one model lacks the latest Intel silicon but should still be plenty powerful with a 10th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD. The 13.4-inch display boasts a razor-sharp 3,840x2,400-pixel resolution.
