Important to note: This is not a sale of the new M1 MacBook Air, which showed impressive results in our first round of testing. This is based on Intel Air, which was introduced in March. This means that it will not be as fast and the battery will not last that long. But it will work with the latest Big Sur operating system and can be yours for $ 100 less than the latest model.
If you are a certain age, then you can remember the name of the gateway and its computers, delivered in black and white boxes for printing cows. Gateway is back as a line of cheap laptops and tablets at Walmart. You won’t find any of the store shelf models in their iconic cow packaging; the new Gateway laptops are only available online. This 14-inch Gateway laptop has a 10th generation Intel Core i5 processor and 16 GB of RAM. You get a 256GB SSD storage device. Storage capacity is average for the price, but the amount of memory is twice as much as is usually offered. And you get a full HD display (1,920×1,080 pixels), which is better than the 1,366×768-pixel panels found in other budget laptops. There is also fingerprint reading for easy and secure entries. Three of the four color options are in stock and sold – black, blue and rose gold.

The Microsoft MacBook branch is slim and light with a fantastic combination of touchpad and keyboard and offers a tangible power boost over the 2018 Surface Laptop 2018. With 2,496×1,664 pixels, the 13.5-inch touch screen gives you a resolution above the usual Full HD. This Surface Laptop 3 features a 10th generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM, Intel Iris Plus graphics and a 128 GB SSD. The biggest drawback of CNET is the relatively short battery life, but it’s less of a problem when you’re not taking it out of your home. Read our review of the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3.

The 13-inch Specter x360 is one of CNET’s favorite two-in-one convertibles for its premium style, light weight and long battery life. The entry-level configuration of this custom laptop has a 10th generation Core i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM, Intel Iris Plus graphics and a 256 GB SSD. With a resolution of Full HD (1,920×1,080 pixels), the 14-inch touch screen can be rotated 360 degrees in tablet mode. The $ 200 discount also applies if you add upgrades, and I’d suggest spending $ 70 to upgrade to a 512GB SSD with 32GB of Optane fast memory, for a total of $ 1070. Read our review of the HP Specter x360 13.

It’s not as thin and light as the flagship X1 Carbon and its display is a bit smaller, but the 13-inch ThinkPad X390 is a sturdy laptop designed for business. This configuration includes components such as the ThinkPad T490 above: eighth generation Core i5, 16 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD. The 13.3-inch display features a resolution of 1,920×1,080 pixels and a brightness of 300 nits. You can get it for $ 900 with a code THOUGHTS.
