If you're looking for a new laptop, you might want to look at the Microsoft store. There are several rare and interesting discounts available there right now including the Acer ConceptD 5 laptop on sale for $1,199.99. That's a huge $500 discount and well below any deal we've seen on this machine until now. Not only does the ConceptD regularly sell for around $1,700, we've actually seen it go for much more in the past. Considering you're getting a color accurate 4K display at this price, it's a worthy deal. This sale, along with many of the others currently live at Microsoft, plans to end on March 31 so grab it while you can.
The specifications for this laptop include an Intel Core i7 processor with up to 4.10GHz speeds, 16GB DDR4 RAM that's great for multi-tasking, a super speedy 512GB solid state drive, and AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics. It also has Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth for some wireless connectivity. The USB-C port includes not only super fast data transfer speeds but it can also be used as a DisplayPort. There are three additional USB-A 3.1 ports as well.
The kicker of course is the 15.6-inch display. It is a Pantone Validated screen with 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution. If you work a lot with graphics or photos and need color accuracy, then you will appreciate what this laptop brings to the table.
Some of the other features include a built-in HD webcam and a battery life that lasts up to seven hours. It comes with a free upgrade to Windows 11 as well.
