HP Envy 13 (1080p, Core i5): was $849 now $499 (opens in new tab)
Our favorite laptop for college students, the HP Envy 13 is perfect for anyone who wants a premium, portable laptop without breaking the bank. We thought the Envy 13 was an excellent deal when it sold for $849. At $499, it's a must buy.
What makes this such a great deal isn't just the heavy discount, but that the Envy 13 is one of the best laptops of the year. In fact, we gave it a 4.5-star rating and named it the best laptop for college students.
The laptop sports a slim aluminum chassis, packs fast performance and the FHD model (the one on sale) lasts for 11+ hours on a charge. On top of that, the base model's 1080p display is better than those you find on more expensive laptops and the Envy 13's triple-speaker setup pumps out loud and clean sound.
The Envy 13 was one of the best-valued laptops when it launched at $849. Now, at $499, it's a no-brainer for anyone who needs an ultraportable 13-inch laptop for browsing the web, watching videos or getting work done during travel.
We'd typically advise you to wait until Black Friday to buy a new laptop, but this deal is too good to ignore. If you want a top-notch laptop at a super-low price, buy the HP Envy 13 from Microsoft before it sells out.
