Best Buy is selling an Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 laptop for $1100. This model, which has a list price of $1649, is a 3.6 pound notebook with an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS processor, Radeon RX 6700S discrete graphics, 16GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, and a 14 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel display.
It’s a pretty great laptop – I bought one for myself two months ago for $1299 when I thought that was as low as the price was likely to get anytime soon. It offers excellent performance, decent battery life, and has a compact, but sturdy design. The webcam stinks, but the IR camera allows for quick sign-ins using facial recognition. Anyway, I’m going to go fire up a customer support chat to see if I can get Best Buy to issue a price match refund. But if you’re in the market for a thin, light, and powerful laptop, today you can buy one for $200 less than I paid.
Or if that price is still a bit too high or you don’t need that much horsepower, Lenovo’s got some great deals on ThinkBook 13X laptops with 12th-gen Intel Core U-series processors.
Here are some of the day’s best deals.
