The Lenovo IdeaPad 1i is definitely not the laptop that is going to launch your career as a content creator, the Intel Celeron N4020 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage are specs that you expect to see on a lower-end Chromebook, but at $99 from Best Buy right now it is an outstanding deal for a secondary laptop or as a first laptop for a younger user that still has the full power of Windows 11 versus Chrome OS.

It’s got some of the fastest transfer speeds on a laptop and it’s got that funky, out-of-this-world look that the legion of fans love.

Right now, this Asus TUF Dash F15 with an RTX 3070 GPU has dropped to just $999 (opens in new tab). Down from the usual $1,499, that means you get to pocket $500 on a gaming laptop that boasts a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and a 512GB PCIe SSD.
