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.

A dual-screen laptop isn't going to be the lightest laptop around, and powering two displays doesn't do its battery life any favors, but having a second, half-height display certainly adds some breathing room to your workspace. Plus, the OLED primary display offers a wide color gamut, making the Asus ZenBook Duo a great fit for photo editing. We reviewed the 15-inch ZenBook Duo and found that having multiple monitors made working and playing much more pleasant. It felt like moving from a tiny apartment to a house, because you're not constantly juggling windows, and you can put boring meetings to the side while you keep working on more interesting stuff. 

This 14-inch model features a 10th-gen Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.
