Now that laptops with the latest Intel and AMD chips are starting to hit the streets, it’s bargain season on models with previous-gen processors that are, honestly, almost as good in most respects.
Case in point: Amazon is running a sale on select laptops from Acer and Asus and, among other things, you can pick up a 3.1 pound laptop with a 14 inch display, an AMD Ryzen 7 5825U processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti discrete graphics, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD for just $750. With a processor that’s virtually identical to the Ryzen 7 7730U chip that AMD introduced this year, that’s a pretty great price for a laptop with hardware that’s not really all that dated.
Here are some of the day’s best deals.
