HP 14 slim 14-inch laptop | $379 $249 at Walmart
You're paying under $250 for this cheap laptop deal from Walmart, but this HP laptop offers the specs of a far more expensive machine.

HP 14-inch laptop | $469 $279 at Walmart
Bridging the gap between the HP Slim above and the Lenovo below is this 14-inch HP laptop deal. You're keeping the 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD of the slightly cheaper deal above but upgrading your processor to a 10th generation Intel i3 processor - beating out even the more expensive Lenovo below.

Lenovo S145 15.6-inch laptop | $589 $295 at Amazon
This Lenovo offers a compromise between storage and processing that keeps the price tag down below $300. That compromise will work for you if you're looking for a larger than average hard drive at this price point (you're getting 500GB here) but you don't mind swapping a lightning fast processor for an Intel Pentium Gold 5405U. That processor, along with 4GB of RAM, will certainly see you through everyday tasks and streaming, but it's something to remember if you're shopping below $300.
View Deal

Acer Aspire 5 15.6-inch laptop | $349.99 $313.48 at Amazon
While you'll double your RAM for just $16 more in the laptop deal below, this Acer Aspire 5 has a few tricks up its sleeve to make this $313 price tag worth it.

But the kicker here comes in the form of those Vega 3 graphics and the gorgeous backlit keyboard built into this model.

HP laptop | 15-inch | $1,249.99 $449.99 at HP
You're picking up a fantastic 10th generation i7 processor in this HP laptop deal, and taking home 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD. That can be configured further for a little jump in price, but those starter specs are looking decent for a sub-$500 price tag.

The best cheap laptops of 2019

Acer Swift 3

The bigger, better value proposition

CPU: Intel Core i3 – i7 | Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 620 | RAM: 4GB – 8GB | Screen: 14-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) ComfyView IPS | Storage: 128GB – 256GB SSD

Stellar battery life
Boring looks
Down-firing speakers

Here we have one of the few budget laptops with a processor nearly equivalent to a MacBook Pro from a couple of years back, that is if you opt for the Intel Core i5 configuration. The best part? Among the best Acer laptops right now, it's roughly half the cost of its Apple-branded rival. Now given that it sells at a range of different prices, the Acer Swift 3 can be an obtuse purchase, but lucky for you, the midrange model will get you by just fine. There are often plenty of cheap laptop deals on Acer products so you'll always be in a good position to grab a discount.

Asus Transformer Mini T102HA

Asus Transformer Mini T102HA

Small, portable and flexible

CPU: Intel Atom x5-Z8350 | Graphics: Integrated Intel HD Graphics | RAM: 4GB | Screen: 10.1-inch HD (1,280 x 800) LED touch display | Storage: 64GB

Tablet and laptop in one
Sizable hard drive
Tiny size could be tough

For one minuscule transaction, you’re getting a tablet equipped with an included keyboard and even a fingerprint scanner for more secure logins. Along with reliable performance and a magnesium-alloy chassis, it’s built to last – not to mention, one of the best Asus laptops you can buy when you're on the budget. As cheap laptops go, Asus is one of the most trusted brands out there so as long as you're getting the specs you need you can't go wrong.

Acer Chromebook 15

Battery life like no other

CPU: 1.5GHz Intel Celeron 3205U | Graphics: Intel HD Graphics | RAM: 4GB | Screen: 15.59-inch, HD (1,920 x 1,080) touchscreen | Storage: 32GB SSD

 Stunning battery life 
 Attractive, fanless design 
Trackpad feels clunky 

While it may be outclassed by the Pixelbook and the Samsung Chromebook in terms of sheer power, the Acer Chromebook 15 can still pack a wallop while providing battery life that is frankly out of this world. It’s rare that a cheap laptop can truly provide all-day battery, but in our independent battery tests, Acer’s Chromebook lasted an astonishing 17 hours – on top of providing enough power to get your work done online. If you’re looking for a 15-inch Chromebook that will give you the most bang for your buck, look no further.

Lenovo Yoga Book

Lenovo Yoga Book (Windows 10)

The netbook of the future – the ultra netbook?

CPU: 1.44GHz Intel Atom x5-Z8550 | Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 400 | RAM: 4GB | Screen: 10.1-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,200 resolution), IPS touchscreen | Storage: 64GB flash storage (plus 128GB with microSD)

Insanely thin and light
Keyboard surprisingly accurate
Woefully underpowered
Dated microUSB port

If you're looking for a Lenovo laptop, the Lenovo Yoga Book, and the Windows 10 version of it in particular, is the sort of futuristic fodder you would find in an episode of Black Mirror. It has a keyboard that doubles as a Wacom touch panel and, best of all, it’s cheap as hell. Now, of course, that comes with the caveat of a weak Intel Atom processor, but the rest of the Lenovo Yoga Book should go down in the history books. Lenovo laptop deals are often worth a look, even if you're just browsing, as they offer a decent range of prices and specs.

Acer Chromebook 14

Meet the anti-MacBook Air

CPU: Intel Celeron N3160 | Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 400 | RAM: 4GB | Screen: 14-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) display | Storage: 32GB SSD

Top-notch build quality
Solid keyboard and touchpad
Full HD display
Flaky HD video playback

With its slick lines and a slim silhouette, the Acer Chromebook 14 makes for a subtle, snazzy laptop. Although its display isn't the most attractive we've seen, it’s still acceptable for full HD. On top of that, the keyboard and trackpad adhere to the principle of ‘it just works.’ The battery life is satisfactory as well despite falling a bit south of Acer's 12-hour claim in real-world use.

How much are good laptop deals? 

In a budget of between $50 and $200, you'll be taking a look at the excellent range of Chromebooks on sale right now. Typically running Chrome OS, these budget laptop deals will see you through everyday web browsing, emails, and some light streaming for eye wateringly low prices. You'll be picking up anything from a 16GB SSD to a 64GB hard drive, but you'll also be looking to utilize the cloud for more storage.

If you're punting a bit higher than $200, you'll be opening yourself up to more RAM, moving from 4GB to 8GB in most models, meaning your cheap laptop will be able to open programs faster, generally retrieving information and multi-task in a more streamlined manner. You'll also be picking up far more storage for your cash, with prices this week including either a 128GB or 256GB SSD. This SSD further streamlines your storage, acting as a lightning-fast drive to keep everything you need instantly attainable.

Once you search for a laptop deal above $400, you may well start to find 16GB of RAM on offer as well as a few models with a 512GB SSD. Along with improved processors, that means exceedingly fast storage potential, keeping your cheap laptop zippy however many programs you have open. Laptops above this price range are also better suited to media editing than cheaper models.
