One of the best gaming laptops released this year is the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 and is $ 250 off its usual $ 1,450 at Best Buy. It has a sleek design, a great keyboard and trackpad, and the battery life far exceeds that of most hungry gaming laptops. It’s also great in games, as you’d expect.
What makes today’s Best Buy deal particularly good is that this model matches the one my colleague Monica Chin tested in this review. It has a 14-inch display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, fast Ryzen 9 4900HS from AMD, graphics processor RTX 2060 Max-Q from Nvidia, 16 GB RAM and 1TB based on PCIe SSD.

Best Buy also offers a small annual subscription deal for Nintendo Switch Online. It doesn’t cost any of the $ 20 it costs to subscribe to the service for a year, but you’ll get a Best Buy gift card for $ 5 with a purchase today. The same goes for membership in the Switch Online family, which allows up to eight users per subscription. It’s $ 35 and comes with a Best Buy gift card for $ 5. Switch Online gives you access to an expanding range of classic NES and SNES games. The service also allows you to backup selected savings to cloud games and allows you to play online multiplayer games.
Lenovo’s Chromebook Duet is a great choice if you’re looking for a portable Chromebook and is cheaper than usual today at Best Buy. You can get the upgraded model with 128GB of internal memory for $ 270. It usually sells for $ 300.
My colleague Monica Chin wrote a review of this model, praising its 11-hour battery life and the fact that although it is a technical tablet, it includes a keyboard and a stand with a purchase to make it easy to use as a laptop. However, Monica mentions that there is no headphone jack, so you will need either a set of USB-C wired headphones or a wireless Bluetooth headset. It is also not a powerful machine with 4GB of RAM.
Updated 10:57 AM ET, October 26: The 64GB version of Lenovo’s Chromebook Duet is no longer available for Walmart’s $ 204, so I moved it down the page.
