Not every computer has to be a top-of-the-line ultra-gaming system. If you're looking for something that is conscious of your budget and will still allow you to check emails, hold work meetings, and submit your school papers then look no further than Best Buy's deals of the day (opens in new tab). Today you can get this Asus Vivobook 15.6-inch laptop on sale for just $299.99. That's $150 off its regular price, but this deal won't last long.
The Vivobook as a brand has laptops that vary from builds like this to Pro versions that can run over $1,000. If budget is the name of the game for you, then it's exceptionally nice to find one that's not just inexpensive but also discounted from its usual price. The laptop can run Windows 11 Home in S Mode, too, so you get Microsoft's latest operating system.
The specifications include a 10th-generation Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM that can help with everything from multitasking to loading heavy applications like video editing software, and a 256GB solid state drive that's super fast. It comes with a nice and large 15.6-inch display that has a 1600 x 768 pixel resolution and LED backlighting.
The great thing about a laptop like this is that it's designed to be super lightweight and not bog you down. The Vivobook weighs less than four pounds and is less than an inch thick. That means you can squeeze it in just about anywhere and keep it with you at all times.
Other features include Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth, a long-lasting battery, and a 30-day trial of Microsoft 365 to help kickstart your productivity.
