There’s never a bad time to pick up a new laptop, and Prime Day means you’re pretty much out of excuses. You can find discounts on all makes and models of laptops or Chromebooks and across all price ranges. This time, we’re sticking to a few affordable picks to help you maximize your savings. Here are just a few Prime Day laptop deals for under $500.
The HP Chromebook X360 is a powerful and flexible option that can handle just about anything at just $289.99 ($70 off). The 2-in-1 design means you can easily flip it from laptop mode into tablet mode or even flatten it out to share the view with your team. HP only added a pair of USB-C ports and a USB-A option, but that should still hold down all of your peripherals. Inside, you’ll get an Intel Pentium Silver processor to work with.
Our next option technically breaks the sub-$500 rule for these laptop deals, but it’s certainly worth the cost. The Asus VivoBook S13 hides an 11th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, and the nearly edgeless 88% screen-to-body ratio draws you in. You also get 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and a 512GB SSD to stay productive. Right now, Asus’s powerful notebook is down to $589.99 ($110 off) for Prime Day.
Another flexible 2-in-1 laptop worth looking at is the Lenovo Chromebook Flex 3 for $239.99 ($50 off). It packs a portable 11-inch display, along with MediaTek’s MT8173 processor. Lenovo’s budget-friendly machine makes a great first laptop for just about anyone thanks to the approachable size, and it has USB-A and HDMI ports to keep you productive. The Blizzard White finish is a nice change from a world of bland black laptops, too.
Now, those of you hoping for a more flexible machine will want to turn to Chrome OS for your laptop deals of choice. Lenovo’s Flex 5 with its 10th-generation Intel Core i3 processor is down to $309.99 ($120 off). It packs a punch for a Chromebook, with 64GB of eMMC storage to go along with 4GB of DDR4 RAM. Maybe best of all is the 13-inch touchscreen — it packs a sharp Full HD resolution that’s great for just about any streaming you can imagine.
Our last cheap laptop deal for Prime Day is another great way to save big bucks. Acer is knocking its light and flexible Chromebook Spin 311 down to just $224.99 for the shopping holiday ($274 off). It matches plenty of the competitors with its Intel Celeron N4020 processor, and the small 11.6-inch screen makes it a great Chromebook for those on the go. If you want tons of screen real estate, you may have to look elsewhere. However, it’s tough to beat portability and price.
