Best Buy is currently running deep discounts on a number of mainstream laptops that can save you up to $300. Screen sizes range from 13.3 inches to 17.3 inches, and you’ll find a mix of traditional clamshell laptops and convertible two-in-one touchscreen models that can ping-pong between laptop and tablet modes. Four models, in particular, are at or near all-time low prices and currently priced lower than you’ll find on Amazon or direct from the manufacturers’ sites.
This 13.3-inch convertible laptop from Samsung features an 8th-generation Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. The screen features a 1,920×1,080 resolution and touch support, and it can be rotated 360 degrees into tablet mode. It’s a current model on Samsung’s site (with the same $300 discount), but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it get updated soon with a 10th-gen Core i7 chip. Still, with its 8th-gen Core i7 part and 8GB of RAM, this model should handle a variety of mainstream tasks without breaking much of a sweat. We liked it when it reviewed it last April for its slim, lightweight design, extra-long battery life and strong performance for its size.

You can’t rotate the display into tablet mode, but this laptop features a 15.6-inch touchscreen for helping navigate Windows. Inside, it supplies an eighth-generation Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and two drives — a 128GB SSD for speed and a 1TB hard drive for storage. The CPU is a generation behind the times, but its four cores and eight threads should still provide plenty of performance, especially when paired with an ample 16GB of RAM.
This two-in-one convertible from HP features a 15.6-inch touchscreen that you can rotate 360 degrees into tablet mode. It features a 10th-gen Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD with 32GB of Optane memory. This modern config supports Wi-Fi 6.
When I first saw the $300 discount, I figured it was an older model on its way out. Not so! This current Yoga C940 configuration boasts a 10th-gen Core i7 CPU, 12GB of RAM, integrated Intel Iris Plus graphics, and a 512GB SSD. With a 14-inch touchscreen that can rotate between laptop and tablet modes, this Yoga C940 config is a steal at $1,000. A similarly configured model with only 8GB of RAM (12GB wasn’t an option) currently costs $275 more on Lenovo’s site.
