This year's Best Buy Presidents Day sale is now live with excellent discounts on must-have electronics. For a limited time, save up to $850 on select laptops including Windows PC, MacBooks, Chromebooks, and gaming laptops. 

One of my favorite deals offers the excellent MacBook Air M2 for $949. Typically $1,099, that's $150 off and $50 shy of the MacBook Air M2's lowest price ever. This is one of the best MacBook deals you'll find outside of the holidays. Another deal worth your while is the LG gram Style 16 OLED Laptop for $1,199 ($600 off). Measuring 0.6-inches thin and weighing a mere 2.8 pounds, this MacBook killer is primed for portable multitasking and gaming.

Looking for a 2-in-1 laptop that offers the best of both worlds? You can get yourself a  convertible HP Envy x360 for just $649 ($400 off). That's $50 cheaper than it was yesterday and one of the top laptop deals from Best Buy's sale. And what's more, My Best Buy Plus or Total members save an extra $50 at checkout which drops this versatile laptop to just $599. How's that for monumental savings?

These are just a few of the generous savings going on at Best Buy this week. See more of my favorite discounts below.
