In this review, we will cover the top 10 laptops that can be had for under $1000
Finding the greatest laptop under $1,000 may seem like a fairly straight-forward and easy venture. Given the price, there should be a plethora of options to choose from, right? Yes, and that is the problem. Someone who has a $1,000 budget for a new computer will have so many alternatives that it may be almost impossible to make a selection. Fortunately, there are ways to narrow down the options by focusing on technical abilities, user reviews, and the price itself. So, what are the top laptops for under $1,000? We’ve got 10 of our top picks right here.
1. HP Touchscreen Flagship Premium
Coming in at number one is the 2019 edition of HP’s touchscreen laptop known as the “Flagship Premium.” As one of the most affordable laptops for under $1,000 on this list, it offers a remarkable combination of features. Equipped with an Intel Core i5-7200U processor, its Windows 10 operating system will be the epitome of speed and efficiency. Not to mention the eight gigabytes of RAM, 15.6-inch screen, and outstanding ratings that all tie to this $588 device.
2. Dell Inspiron HD Gaming Laptop
Another 15.6-inch option for anyone seeking an extremely powerful laptop is the Dell Inspiron Full HD. The price is substantially higher than the aforementioned option because there is an Intel quad-core processor, one terabyte of hard drive memory, six gigabytes of NVIDIA GeForce graphics, and more. The design is characterized by a very thin top that rests on a bulky bottom with a grill-like design on the front.
3. Apple Macbook Air
Apple Macbook Air requires little to practically no introduction. As the undisputed leader in the market of light computers, this 13-inch laptop carries a nearly 4.5 average rating across hundreds of reviews. It comes with eight gigabytes of RAM, dual-core Intel processor, and three different capacities. Folks can also alter that processor as there are 1.8 and a 2.2 gigahertz options available. Since both of them are right around or under $1,000, everyone should certainly consider this silver-colored beauty.
4. Asus VivoBook S15 Slim
Unlike most modern-day laptops, the base of the lid on the Asus VivoBook rests on the desk and raises the keyboard up to an angle. Whenever the computer is fully open, that bottom portion will serve as a stabilizer for this 15.6-inch, Windows 10 device. It is built using full metal that protects the Intel Core i5 processor. The price is a little under $700 and easily qualifies for the list. Also, folks can choose between five different trims that include blue, yellow, red, grey, and white options.
5. HP Pavilion Gaming
Going back to the devices that cost nearly $1,000 will put the buyer in front of the relatively unknown HP Pavilion gaming laptop. With a 15-inch screen and an extremely unique design, it combines a green keyboard with its elegantly dark trim. Those who do not want to spend so much can downgrade to an i5 model that has eight gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigabytes of SSD. Doing so will save them $200 and bring them down to a total of $770 for the transaction.
6. Acer Aspire 5 Slim
Any list of low-cost laptops for under $1,000 would be incomplete without the Acer Aspire 5 Slim. As yet another prospect that comes with a 15.6-inch screen, this computer runs an i5-8265U processor from Intel Core’s 8th generation. The operating system is Windows 10 and there is a forward-thinking feature that allows fingerprint-based unlocking. The IPS display also lets the user enjoy high-resolution photos, videos, or any other type of content.
7. Asus VivoBook 15 Thin
One could say that the VivoBook 15 Thin is the younger brother of the S15 Slim. After all, the design is quite similar. The 15 Thin features a quad-core AMD processor, eight gigabytes of RAM, AMD Radeon Vega Graphics, as well as Windows 10. The greatest advantage of choosing to go with this laptop is the price tag that falls under $550, making it one of the cheapest laptops mentioned thus far.
8. MSI GL63 Gaming Laptop
If there was ever a computer that was clearly made for gaming, it would have to be the MSI GL63. With an aggressive design that leverages red highlights, it is amongst the most beautiful portable computers on the market. As with nearly all other choices on this list, the screen is 15.6 inches. The RAM is also limited to eight gigabytes while the Intel Core i5 processor paired with NVIDIA GTX1050 facilitates smooth functioning of its Windows 10.
9. Asus ZenBook 13 Ultra-Slim
Courtesy of a price tag that is one cent under the maximum, Asus ZenBook enters the list on a technicality. This is great news for anyone who is looking to pay under $1,000 for a device that is definitely worth every penny or even more. At 13.3 inches, it is a bit smaller than most of the previous computers. Nonetheless, it brings an Intel Core i7-8565U processor, 16 gigabytes of RAM, Windows 10, and 512 gigabytes of SSD. Not to mention that there is a 10-key hologram on the trackpad.
10. MSI GV62 Performance Gaming
The last option is the upgraded MSI computer that now becomes the GV62. With twice the RAM, aluminum-black trim, and one terabyte of HDD, it is undoubtedly an upgrade over the GL63. Given how GL63 was $999.99, it is very likely that the GV62 will exceed the price range by a bit. Fortunately, a bit of research could allow you to find this incredible computer for under $1,000.
