Memorial Day Laptop Deal - Lenovo Ideapad For Less Than $300

Best Buy's Memorial Day sale has knocked down the price on a bunch of laptops to fit just about any budget.


Businesses love running Memorial Day Weekend sales, and at Best Buy, that means a big sale on laptops, among other tech gear. Headlining the best laptop deals at the retailers is a Lenovo Ideapad i1, which usually retails for $500 but is on sale for $280.

The Ideapad is a budget laptop that's a solid option for lower-intensity school and work requirements--things like browsing the internet and doing research, and writing documents and emails. This model weighs 3.5 pounds and is only 0.7 inches thick, making it really easy to use on the go, and Lenovo claims it'll get 10 hours of battery life.

The i1 offers a 15.6" screen and 8GB of RAM, but with only 256GB of SSD storage, but is workable if you're using it for tasks that are on the simpler side. It also includes an Intel i3 processor and Intel Iris Xe Graphics, as well as an HDMI output port and media reader for photo transfer.

If you're looking for more discounts, it's worth paging through Best Buy's Memorial Day sale. The retailer has more laptops on sale, along with computer accessories that include bags, monitors, and external hard drive.
