Best laptop deals: Save $50 on 14-inch MacBook Pro, $400 on Lenovo Yoga 9i and more

Apple's new 14-inch MacBook Pro gets its first price break, and there are even bigger discounts on Windows laptops and 2-in-1 convertibles.

Apple announced new MacBook Pros early this week, and we've just seen our first price break for one of the models. The new 14-inch MacBook Pro is selling with a $50 discount right now on Amazon. You can also save up to $100 on a 2020 MacBook Air. 

Bigger savings are available on Windows laptops, from a budget Gateway laptop to premium two-in-one convertibles from Lenovo and Samsung. Check out the $200 price break at Newegg on MSI's MacBook clone -- the Prestige 14 --  and you can save another $100 with a mail-in rebate.

We've rounded up the best laptop deals from Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg and Walmart. If you're due for a laptop upgrade, check out these deals, which are regularly updated as sales expire and new deals emerge.

Walmart

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 now has a line of low-cost laptops and tablets at Walmart. This 15.6-inch Gateway laptop features a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 CPU and 16GB of RAM. You get a 256GB solid-state drive for storage -- average capacity 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. The black model is $300 less than some of the other color choices and an excellent deal.

Lenovo

This midrange laptop is currently on sale at a budget laptop price. It features a 15.6-inch full-HD touchscreen powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 3700U CPU, 12GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The CPU is a couple generations behind AMD's current line but a member of the leading Ryzen 7 series -- it should power through general tasks with its above-average memory allotment.

MSI

MSI's version of the MacBook boasts a thin, sleek, all-aluminum enclosure and Intel's Evo platform. This discounted model features an 11th-gen Core i5 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. You also get a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports. In addition to the $200 discount, you can save another $100 via mail-in rebate to drop the price to $799.

Samsung

This 13.3-inch, two-in-one laptop features a blue aluminum chassis and Samsung's QLED touch display with a full HD 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution for a crisp image with accurate color. Inside, it supplies an 1th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.

The latest MacBook Air features Apple's M1 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. It's currently selling at a $70 discount at Amazon. A 256GB drive will fill up fast; the step-up model with a 512GB SSD is $100 off.

Lenovo's latest premium two-in-one convertible delivers the Intel Evo platform inside a thin yet durable all-metal chassis. This discounted model features an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, Intel Iris Xe graphics and a 512GB SSD. A leather lid helps protect the 14-inch touchscreen, which boasts a 4K resolution and can be tapped and drawn on with the included active pen.

Microsoft's MacBook clone boasts a sleek, all-aluminum enclosure. At 2,496x1,664 pixels, the 13.5-inch touchscreen gives you a resolution above the usual Full HD. And its 3:2 aspect ration gives you more vertical space for less scrolling. This Surface Laptop 4 model features an 11th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, Intel Iris Plus graphics and a 512GB SSD.

Apple

The new 14-inch MacBook Pro uses Apple's new M1 Pro processor and features 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. The Touch Bar is gone, which is a net positive, and MagSafe charging, an HDMI port and an SD card slot are back. The webcam gets a bump up to 1080p resolution for your Zoom calls. The 14.2-inch Liquid Retina XDR display features a 3,024x1,964-pixel resolution. The 14-inch MacBook Pro just received its first price break -- it's $50 off at Amazon right now.
