With the remaining Presidents' Day sales still live at a number of retailers, you've got a small window to pick up some of the best cheap laptop deals this week before they vanish. We've searched through them all to bring you the top offers right here. No matter your budget – whether you want the cheapest Chromebook, best value laptop or biggest discount on a high-end ultrabook – we've got an option just below.

If you simply want to know what the very best laptop deal is this week, here's your answer. It's this HP 14t for $379.99 at HP. A clear highlight in this year's Presidents' Day laptop sales, this device has some excellent components for the price, including an Intel i3 process and 8GB of RAM. That's makes it capable of multitasking between general everyday use, light work and media streaming with ease.

Those with a tighter budget or only in need of a very basic machine for light use or schoolwork should definitely check out this Asus 11-inch Chromebook for only $99 at Best Buy. There isn't another device for less that's worth spending your money on this week. Alternatively, this Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is just $214.99 and a great price for a 2-in-1 laptop that's as capable of all that too, with the added flexibility of a touchscreen.

Towards the upper price bracket, there's also a huge discount of over $400 on this Surface Pro 7+ and Type Cover bundle at Walmart. It's back to a record low, is the best price today for Microsoft's hybrid machine and is one of the better Surface Pro deals we've seen thanks to the inclusion of that expensive keyboard accessory.

Those are all the highlights in this week's top cheap laptop deals. As you'll see, we've got a few that are available from major retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart. Going direct to a manufacturer in the current HP Presidents' Day sales or Dell Presidents' Day sales can also get you a better deal while the offers are still live, but they are only around for another few days.

If you're after more web-based machines, check out even more Chromebook deals. If you're a gamer, you'd be better suited to check out our selection of gaming laptop deals as the models on this page are not usually built with gaming in mind.

Cheap laptop deal of the week

HP 14t laptop: $549.99 $379.99 at HP
Save $170
– Our pick for the best laptop deal in the HP Presidents' Day sale. This is a big discount on a machine that comes with an Intel i3 processor, 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD - not many laptops are available for less with all of these top components. It'll power through everyday tasks and hold its own with more demanding work or multitasking.

Cheap laptop deals under $200

Lenovo Chromebook 3: $219 $119 at Best Buy
Save $100
– This is the cheapest laptop deal available right now. The Lenovo Chromebook 3 is a basic machine with an AMD A6 processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB of storage but that's fine for the simplest work and school tasks on a budget.

Samsung Chromebook 4: $229.99 $109 at Walmart
Save $120
 – The Samsung Chromebook 4 is usually more expensive than similar devices so we tend to pass on it, but it's back on offer again at Walmart. There aren't any cheaper devices worth spending your money on. If your budget is around $100 and you need a basic device that lasts long on the go with its 12.5-hour battery life, this is the one to go for this week.

Asus 11.6-inch Chromebook: $219 $99 at Best Buy
Save $120
– A few offers a still live following Best Buy's Presidents' Day sale including this ridiculously cheap Asus Chromebook. You won't find a laptop deal for less this week, but obviously be aware this is a very basic device that's best suited to light browsing, sending emails and schoolwork.

HP Chromebook 11a: $259.99 $149.99 at HP
Save $110 –
Of course, there's a Chromebook for less than this right above but this HP comes with a processor upgrade that shouldn't be ignored. If you need a simple machine on a tight budget for light use or schoolwork this will do the job without compromising as much on specs.

Acer 315 Chromebook: $219 $189 at Walmart
Save $30
– Most cheap laptop deals for under $200 come with smaller screens, but this Asus 315 sports a 15.6 display - much better if you need a device for more regular work that also doesn't need to be as portable. The spec elsewhere remains basic with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which will be fine for light work and browsing. A protective sleeve is included in the price, too, if you decide you do want to take it on the go.

Lenovo Chromebook S330: $279.99 $199.99 at Amazon
Save $80
– We're glad to see this laptop deal is available for yet another week at Amazon. The Lenovo Chromebook S330 is one of the best 14-inch machines you can buy for under $200 when it's on sale. Definitely consider this if you need a basic machine for work or school but one that comes with double the storage of most laptops and Chromebooks at this price point.

Asus 14-inch laptop: $259.99 $199.99 at Best Buy
Save $60
– When it comes to the best value for money laptop deals we still haven't seen anything beat this 14-inch Asus laptop at Best Buy for another week. With a capable Intel Celeron processor and 4GB of RAM, it will handle basic tasks with ease, while the roomy 128GB of storage ensure loads of space for files and applications - and is rarely seen under $200. If you have a small budget and would prefer a Windows device to a Chromebook then this Asus laptop is the best way to spend your money.

Cheap laptop deals from $200 to $400

Acer Chromebook Spin 311: $289.99 $214.99 at Amazon
Save $75
– The Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is still down to a terrific low price this week and just $15 off its all-time low, so well worth considering if you're after a deal on one of the best 2-in-1 laptops. This hybrid machine comes with an entry-level MediaTek processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which is all you really need in a basic device for browsing the net, media streaming and maybe even some light work. Elsewhere, the new version of Acer Chromebook Spin 311 is currently just $35 more but isn't a huge upgrade over this cheaper model.

HP Chromebook x360: $359.99 $259.99 at HP
Save $100
– While this may look expensive for a Chromebook, we actually think it's a terrific deal when you factor in the fact this is a 2-in-1 laptop with a 14-inch touch screen. If you chose to pay a lot less you'd usually find only 11-inch machines with no touch capabilities and worse components. This x360 has a basic but decent AMD processor as well as 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage - fine for light use or schoolwork.

HP 15z laptop: $469.99 $299.99 at HP
Save $170
– For those on a smaller budget but still want to come away with a great value laptop this is HP 15z is a solid option for under $300. It's a great choice if you need a machine for light use and basic work. The real highlight is that it still comes with 8GB RAM, which will ensure good performance despite the weaker processor. You also get a 128GB SSD for speedy access for files and quick load times for applications.

HP 14t laptop: $549.99 $379.99 at HP
Save $170
– Our pick for the best laptop deal in the HP Presidents' Day sale. This is a big discount on a machine that comes with an Intel i3 processor, 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD - not many laptops are available for less with all of these top components. It'll power through everyday tasks and hold its own with more demanding work or multitasking.

Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Laptop: $638.99 $399.99 at Dell
Save $239
– There's a massive $239 saving on this Dell laptop in the current Presidents' Day sale - but it won't be available for long. As far as the ideal mid-range device goes, you won't find anything better value than this. It comes with the ideal trio of an Intel i5 processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD at a very affordable price. This will give you super fast access to files and dramatically reduce the load times of Windows and applications.

Cheap laptop deals from $400 to $600

HP 15t laptop: $599.99 $429.99 at HP
Save $170
– This is our pick for the best laptop deal in the HP Presidents' Day sale. However, it's built almost exactly the same as the Dell above with an Intel i5 processor, 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD but at $30 more. We suggest going for that if you can but this is a decent backup option if the above sells out or is expired before we can swap it out. If you'd prefer to go for an HP laptop anyway, this will still power through everyday tasks and hold its own with more demanding work or multitasking.

HP 14-inch laptop: $559.99 $459.99 at Amazon
Save $100
– For a little more than the HP laptop above, you can get a smaller 14-inch screen and near 10-hour battery life if portability is more important to you. The spec is very similar, with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD included. You get an AMD Ryzen 5 processor instead, but performance is very similar and more than suitable for an everyday machine.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7+: $999.99 $529 at Walmart
Save $470
– This Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ is even cheaper than it was last week. We already thought it was a fantastic laptop deal as it comes with the pricey Type Cover accessory as part of the bundle for no additional cost. Now, though, it's even better. You also get an i3 processor along with 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD. That's a very strong specification for work and everyday browsing – and a great price for the added portability and flexibility of a Surface device.

HP Pavilion x360: $699 $599 at Walmart
Save $100
– Still the best premium 2-in-1 laptop deal this week. With an i5 processor, 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD this HP Pavilion x360 packs in a lot of power for the money. Get it for the flexibility of a hybrid machine that also delivers strong performance for all tasks such as work, browsing and media streaming.

Best laptop deals over $600

HP Pavilion 15: $999.99 $629.99 at HP
Save $370
– Need a more powerful machine? There's a whopping $370 off this HP Pavilion 15 that comes packed with high-end components. Finding a laptop with an Intel i7 processor, 16GB RAM and a 512GB SSD for this close to $600 is very rare. Chances are this is overkill for most general uses, but if you want your laptop to be at the top of its game then this HP Pavilion 15 is worth the investment while you can get it at such a good price.

Dell XPS 13 laptop: $949.99 $699.99 at Dell
Save $250
–The excellent Dell XPS 13 laptop is now just $50 away from its record low price in the manufacturer's Presidents' Day sale. This is a versatile machine with a 13.3-inch Full HD InfinityEdge display, Intel i5 processor, 8GB RAM and a 256 SSD. Basically, it's everything you could want from a high-performance laptop for work, school or just general use.

MacBook Air M1 (256GB): $999 $949 at Amazon
Save $50 -
After a big drop to $799 over Black Friday, the 256GB M1 MacBook Air is sadly no longer at its lowest ever price this week at Amazon. There's still a reasonable $50 saving on the new machine, though, that features Apple's powerful M1 chip and premium chassis. If you don't need one immediately, we'd suggest at least waiting for the $899 deal to return.

This week's best store-wide laptop sales

HP: Save up to 45% on laptops, all-in-one PCs, monitors and more
You'll find savings across a range of HP Pavilion and Envy laptops this week, as well as HP's budget entry level models as well. Not only that, but desktop towers, all-in-one bundles and other accessories are also discounted right now.

Dell: cyber sale with limited-time Black Friday prices
Dell is offering some major savings across its range of XPS and Inspiron laptops this week, with up to $700 off some of its more premium machines. You'll find plenty of discounts across the price range, though.

Best Buy: massive range of laptops now under $500
Best Buy has a strong selection of cheap laptop deals under $500 this week, with everything from HP to Dell, Acer to Asus either taking a price cut to fit or already available for less.

Which stores have cheap laptop sales?

If you're looking for the best budget laptop to see you through everyday browsing, we'd recommend heading over to the generalist retailers - Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon, for example. If you're after something a little more specialist, Dell, Lenovo and HP will offer far more configuration options with their own discounts as well.

The best cheap laptops

The best budget laptops are usually the ones offering decent entry level specs (32 or 64GB of storage in a Chromebook or a 4GB / 8GB RAM, i3 processor, 128GB  storage in a Windows machine) at a reduced price. However, you'll sometimes find mid-range specs offering a step up at similar prices on cheaper machines. Below you'll find our top picks of cheap laptops that do exactly that during busy sales periods. 

Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook

(Image credit: Lenovo)

1. Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook

A cheap grab and go 2-in-1 laptop

CPU: MediaTek Helio P60T | Graphics: ARM G72 MP3 800GHz | RAM: 4GB | Screen: 10.1" FHD (1920 x 1200) IPS touchscreen | Storage: 64 - 128GB

Incredibly versatile
High value 
Performs well for the price
Older components

If you're shopping for cheap laptops, chances are you're not going to spend too long poring over spec sheets or want to splash out on the latest processors and graphics. You might be looking for a simple everyday web browsing machine light enough to throw into a backpack and flexible enough for comfortable streaming. That's where the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook comes in - it's technically a tablet, but far more powerful than you'd expect from such a small machine.

Acer Chromebook 14

2. Acer Chromebook 14

Meet the anti-MacBook Air

CPU: Intel Celeron N3160 | Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 400 | RAM: 4GB | Screen: 14-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) display | Storage: 32GB SSD

Top-notch build quality
Solid keyboard and touchpad
Full HD display
Flaky HD video playback

With its slick lines and a slim silhouette, the Acer Chromebook 14 makes for a subtle, snazzy laptop. Although its display isn't the most attractive we've seen, it’s still acceptable for full HD. On top of that, the keyboard and trackpad adhere to the principle of ‘it just works.’ The battery life is satisfactory as well despite falling a bit south of Acer's 12-hour claim in real-world use.

Asus VivoBook

(Image credit: Asus)

3. Asus Vivobook 15

Mid-range specs for entry level prices

CPU: Up to Intel i7 | Graphics: Nvidia | RAM: Up to 16GB | Screen: FHD (1920x1080) | Storage: 128GB SSD – 1TB HDD

Versatile and powerful
Full HD screen
Regularly discounted

You're shopping in the $399 - $599 range when looking at an Asus Vivobook, with entry-level specs outperforming the vast majority of Chromebooks you'd usually find at this price. Plus, you're getting some pretty premium features in this cheap laptop. A Nano-Edge display keeps everything looking sharp, the option for Intel Optane memory makes sure all your most-used programs and files are well within reach, and a 1.6kg weight on a full-sized 15.6-inch laptop is nothing to sniff at either.

Acer Swift 3

4. Acer Swift 3

The bigger, better value proposition

CPU: Intel Core i3 – i7 | Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 620 | RAM: 4GB – 8GB | Screen: 14-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) ComfyView IPS | Storage: 128GB – 256GB SSD

Powerful for the price
Stellar battery life
Boring looks
Down-firing speakers

Here we have one of the few budget laptops with a processor nearly equivalent to a MacBook Pro from a couple of years back, that is if you opt for the Intel Core i5 configuration. The best part? Among the best Acer laptops right now, it's roughly half the cost of its Apple-branded rival. Now given that it sells at a range of different prices, the Acer Swift 3 can be an obtuse purchase, but lucky for you, the midrange model will get you by just fine. There are often plenty of cheap laptop deals on Acer products so you'll always be in a good position to grab a discount.

Cheap laptop deals: Tips and Tricks

One of the first things we often check when shopping for cheap laptops is the amount of storage on offer. As shoppers, we've become accustomed to comparing prices and models based on the number of gigabytes next to the model name. However, there may be more to it than that, especially when you're browsing the cheaper shelves. You may also need to pay attention to your operating system when picking up a budget laptop deal under $200. 

Some cheap laptops are more worthy of your cash than others, and many simply need to be avoided. For example, you'll easily find a Windows machine that offers just 16 or 32GB of storage, but with update file and software sizes increasing, you may quickly find that insufficient. However, finding a Chromebook with 16 or 32GB of storage for under $200 makes for a great cheap laptop deal. That's because these machines run on Chrome OS which doesn't require updates and operates largely through your browser. 

Similarly, a lot of laptops hold incredibly low price tags because they are labelled as 'FreeDOS'. This means they don't have an operating system on them already, so you will need to buy Windows 10 to get them set up. 

How much are the best laptop deals? 

Shopping for the best budget laptop deals between $50 and $200 will usually have you looking at the excellent range of Chromebooks on sale right now. Running Chrome OS, these budget laptop deals will see you through everyday web browsing, emails, and some light streaming for eye wateringly low prices. You'll be picking up anything from a 16GB SSD to a 64GB hard drive, but you'll also be looking to utilize the cloud for more storage.

If you're punting a bit higher than $200, you'll be opening yourself up to more RAM, moving from 4GB to 8GB in most models, meaning your cheap laptop will be able to open programs faster, generally retrieving information and multi-task in a more streamlined manner. You'll also be picking up far more storage for your cash, with prices this week including either a 128GB or 256GB SSD. This SSD further streamlines your storage, acting as a lightning-fast drive to keep everything you need instantly attainable.

Once you search for laptop deals above $400, you may well start to find 16GB of RAM on offer as well as a few models with a 512GB SSD. Along with improved processors, that means exceedingly fast storage potential, keeping your cheap laptop zippy however many programs you have open. Laptops above this price range are also better suited to media editing than cheaper models.
