A laptop sale, more often than not, is a way for a vendor to move out last year’s models to make room for the new. Depending on the discounts offered, it can be a perfectly fine way to pick up a well-equipped laptop at a great price even if it doesn’t boast the latest and greatest tech.
Best Buy kicked off a four-day sale on Monday that ends Thursday at 11:59 p.m. CT (21:59 PT on Thursday/12:59 a.m ET on Friday). You’ll find all manner of tech on sale, from TVs and appliances to home theater gear and laptops. And not just last year’s laptops. Included in the sale are five modern, two-in-one convertible laptops based on Intel’s Evo platform by way of the chip maker’s latest 11th-generation Tiger Lake processors. The Evo label means, among other things, a laptop provides oodles of battery life, fast charging and the ability to wake from sleep instantly. You can save between $100 and $300 on a two-in-one convertible ultraportable laptop from Dell, HP or Lenovo.
