Looking for a new laptop can be time-consuming and confusing. You have to make so many hardware and software decisions and it can feel like you’re comparing apples and oranges. That wasn’t a Mac pun, but it does bring up the fact that you even have to choose your operating system. Even after you narrow your choices, it can be even tougher to narrow down the best laptop deals.

We’ve taken a bit of the hassle out of your quest. We’ve gone ahead and rounded up some of the best options that can be had right now, and we’ve split our deals up by manufacturer to make things easier. Some new laptops have sky-high prices, so we’ve tried to keep our limit close to $1,000.
Featured deal: Save $200 on a Surface Laptop 3
The Microsoft Surface line earned its stripes in the 2-in-1 market, but the Surface Laptop represents its latest effort in the traditional clamshell market. Available in 13.5-inch and 15-inch configurations, the Surface Laptop 3 takes many of its design cues from its touchscreen siblings.
The bezel may be a bit thick and the display may be on the square side, but an Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of memory give you a nice boost when you need to be productive. It’s a laptop that’s designed to turn heads, and the ability to choose a soft Alcantara finish or a matte texture reinforces that idea. You can take any of four colors, and if you opt for a 16GB configuration Microsoft has storage options up to 1TB.
Microsoft Surface Laptop 3
Take Microsoft Surface style cues and pack them into a clamshell laptop and you've got yourself a Surface Laptop. This version adds a Core i5 to the mix and up to 16GB of memory.

Lenovo has been leading the laptop scene for as long as it’s been around, holding the title as one of the top producers in the world. It’s created many well-known product lines, but none more so than the fabled Yoga 2-in-1s. The Yoga name has even begun to leak into other lines such as the powerful ThinkPads which are built for productivity. Many of Lenovo’s high-end machines feature unique hinge designs that blend beauty and strength.
