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.

  1. Man, those linkbuds just keep getting cheaper! I bought a pair when they were at ~$80, and I really like mine. They’re great for listening to something while keeping aware of my environment, and they’re vibration sensitive rather than touch-sensitive, so the controls work even with gloves and a hat on.

    (I did have to turn off “wide area tap” because it kept incorrectly detecting things like me eating food as taps, but the regular mode works fine.)
