In the market for a new Windows 10 laptop? Now is a good time to buy. Best Buy has announced a series of deals on some of its Windows 10 laptops, including the Asus Vivobook and the HP Envy 2-in-1 laptops.
Both laptops have a lot to offer, and while they’re slightly different in their level of performance and design, they’re definitely both worth considering for those of you who are in the market for a new Windows 10 laptop.
First up is the Asus Vivobook, which has a 14-inch Full HD screen and a sleek, stylish design, as well as a relatively affordable price tag even when it’s not on sale. Under the hood, the Vivobook is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor coupled with 8GB of RAM. It also packs 128GB of storage.
When it comes to ports, the laptop has a headphone jack, HDMI output, MicroSD card slot, two USB-A ports, and a USB-C port. It’s a very thin and lightweight laptop that only weighs 3.09 pounds and measures 0.7-inches thick, so it’s easy to take with you on the go.
Next up is the HP Envy 2-in-1, which is slightly more affordable than the Asus laptop. The Envy 2-in-1 comes with a larger 15.6-inch Full HD screen, along with an AMD Ryzen 5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and an AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics card.
With that graphics card, it should be a little more high-performing for video editing and some gaming. As the name suggests, the laptop has a 2-in-1 form factor, so it can be used as a tablet, too. It’s also fairly lightweight at 4.7 pounds and it is also 0.7-inches thick, so the HP Envy is nice and portable.
We don’t know how long these deals will last, so be sure to check them out if you’re interested.
