The top laptop sales for Presidents’ Day 2023
How’s your laptop? Is it keeping up with demands? Or is it feeling the strain of all the extra use it endured last year (and the year before that)? If you think it’s better to wait until Prime Day or Black Friday, guess again: Presidents’ Day sales are out of this world. You heard right — Target, Amazon and Walmart have rolled out major discounts on brands like Lenovo, Samsung, Apple and more. We combed through this weekend’s offerings and put together a list of the very best deals. Scroll on down to meet your new laptop — at a price that’ll mark the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Laptops under $400
The Lenovo IdeaPad 3 is a Yahoo reader favorite. Seriously — hundreds of people have jumped on this deal, picking up a nearly $1,000 laptop for a wild 60% off. I even recommended it to my mother! The reason is that it packs up to 256GB of memory, 8 GB of RAM and plenty of I/O for nearly anything you can think of.
“I needed a laptop to take the bar exam because I couldn’t download the exam software on my work laptop. I’d purchased a Microsoft surface laptop in the past, and while it’s super sleek, light and the screen quality is great, twice I’ve had it break down and malfunction. And it’s like $1,000. This laptop is a bit heavy and the screen resolution isn’t the best, but it appears to be a reliable machine… I actually love the feeling of the keyboard and track pad. Great laptop,” said one user.
Laptops $400 to $800
This gaming laptop packs serious power. The 256GB SSD isn’t a ton of memory, but there are enough USB ports that you can use external memory with ease. The 8 GB of RAM will handle most modern games at medium settings, and the high-powered processor means you don’t have to worry about stuttering in your gameplay.
“This is amazing! I can actually play the games I want to with no issues, including games with lots of Mod files. It’s upgradable, but works great so far straight out of the box. Battery life isn’t the best, but I’m used to leaving my laptop plugged in, so it’s not a deal breaker for me. Was able to download multiple apps and games with the space already on the computer. I will upgrade what I can with time, but for now, it’s perfect. Download times are great as well,” said one happy gamer.

At this price point, the majority of the laptops you’ll come across are either gaming focused or dedicated to users who need high-end functionality for image or video processing. The MSI Katana falls into that gaming category, and what a laptop it is. It’s not the most powerful laptop, but it’ll outstrip the majority of gaming machines on the market.
“Graduating from an ROG ‘ultra gamer laptop,’ the outer casing is such a breath of fresh air. The thing is fully enclosed with a sleek black. The only thing that offsets the darkness is the piercing red of the shield and the keyboard. This is definitely where the ‘less-is-better’ approach shines through — I’m not ashamed to bust this laptop out in a public area. Really grateful for the design choice here,” said one five-star reviewer. “In terms of performance, I have no qualms with it…”
