Lenovo IdeaPad 3 deal
This IdeaPads specs sheet includes a 15.6-inch (1920 x 1080) display, 1.0-GHz Core i5-1035G1 quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 258GB SSD. That's ample power for day-to-day functions like creating documents, managing emails, web browsing, and streaming media.
Although we didn't test this exact model, Lenovo laptops generally offer great performance, a comfortable keyboard, and solid build quality. It also has a decent amount of ports to connect peripherals; you get two USB 3.2 ports, a USB 2.0, HDMI port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
With a weight of 3.7 pounds and measuring 14.25 x 10.0 x 0.79 inches, the IdeaPad 3 is on par with the Acer Aspire 5 (3.8 pounds, 14.3 x 9.9 x 0.7 inches). By comparison, it's lighter and smaller than the Acer Aspire E 15 (5 pounds, 15 x 10.2 x 1.2 inches).
If you're bargain hunting for a cheap but good laptop under $500, at $449, the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 deal is a no brainer.
