Be smart about back to school
Yes, you can get a spankin’ new laptop and not have to eat instant ramen for the next nine months. This budget pick slips right into your pack and racks up straight A’s when it comes to researching on the web, emails, and basic homework asks. The 15.6-inch full HD IPS display is also a treat when it comes to streaming.
Get your gaming fix on the go
If you need a portable gaming rig, this is it. Don’t let the thin silhouette fool you, this machine packs the nuclear combo of an Intel 11th Generation 6 Core processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics. Add the silky smooth 144Hz refresh rate and slay away, whether you’re gaming in a diner on Route 66 or on a work trip.
Take your gaming to the next level
Just like your gaming avatar, this machine is military-tough, lightweight, and lightning-fast. In addition to being tested against drops and extreme temps, it’s loaded with a GeForce RTX 3060 GPU with a dedicated MUX switch to max out your frames per second. Go ahead, unleash your wicked skills.
Work from anywhere
This multi-tasker lets you grind it out on a tropical isle or in your local park without lag. It rings in at an exceptionally slim 19.9 millimeters and the HD camera and Smart Noise Cancelling dual microphones keep your video calls totally pro — even if you’re wearing board shorts on your bottom half.
Level up your laptop style
This brushed-aluminum convertible is dressed to impress. The 12th Gen Intel Core processor muscles through your work dailies and the edge-to-edge FHD touchscreen is a dream streaming machine after you sign off. It’s also partially made from recycled ocean-bound plastics, which is pretty cool.
Go easy on your eyes
This high-end ultraportable is awesome if you rack up the screen time. In addition to the power-packed Intel Core i7 processor and a Thunderbolt 4 port that’s up to eight times faster than a USB 3.0, the ComfortView Plus technology reduces harmful blue light. Your peepers will seriously thank you.
