This Newegg's back-to-school laptop deal takes $100 off the Intel-charged Acer Aspire 5. Now on sale for its lowest price yet, the Aspire 5 is a solid workhorse. The laptop in this deal is configured with a 15.6-inch 1080p display, 1.3-GHz 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 quad-core CPU, 12GB of RAM, Iris Plus graphics and a 512GB SSD.

Powered by Windows 10 Home, the Acer Aspire 5 is a modestly priced college laptop that doesn't skimp on performance. The laptop in this deal packs a 15.6-inch 1080p display, 1.3-GHz Intel Core i7-1065G7 quad-core CPU, 12GB of RAM and Iris Plus GPU. For file storing and transferring, it houses a high capacity 512GB solid-state drive. 

In our Acer Aspire 5 review, we found its good sound quality and selection of ports impressive. It equips you with an HDMI port, two USB 3.1ports, a USB 3.1 Type-C port and a USB 2.0 port. Additionally, you get a headphone/mic combo jack and a Kensington lock slot. 

Weighing in at 4 pounds and 14.3 x 9.9 x 0.7 inches, the Aspire 5 is on par with its 15-inch competitors. It's just a skosh lighter than the Dell XPS 15 (4.5-pounds, 13.6 x 9.1 x 0.7 inches) and HP Envy x360 15  (4.1 pounds, 14.13 x 9.96 x 0.7 inches), 

As an alternative, you can get the Asus VivoBook 14 11th Gen Intel Core i5 laptop for $649 ($100 off). And if you're looking for an all-around laptop for both coursework and PC gaming, Newegg also offers the MSI Pulse GL66 RTX 3060 GPU Gaming Laptop for $1,349 after rebate ($150 off). 

These Newegg back-to-school Intel laptop deals end August 2.
