As laptop manufacturers begin to roll out their 2022 models, now is a good time to scoop up a model from last year at a discount. With Intel announcing new 12th-gen Core processors and AMD rolling out new Ryzen chips at CES at the beginning of the year, retailers are slashing prices on current models to make way for upcoming computers with the latest chips. 

The best deals I see this week are at Best Buy, where you can save $200 on Samsung's sleek Galaxy Book Pro laptop. And if you want the newest Galaxy Book 2 Pro that features a 12th-gen Intel Core CPU, a brighter display and better webcam, you can get one with a $150 discount. At Amazon, you can knock a whopping $465 off the price of the LG Gram 17 or get an Asus VivoBook 15 with an OLED display for a great price. I've also included other strong deals I've found at Amazon, Best Buy and Newegg.

Check out the options below, which are regularly updated as sales expire and new deals emerge.

This budget-to-midrange laptop from HP may have an uninspired plastic enclosure, but if you care more about screen size and storage space than you do about a sleek design, then this model is worth checking out. It should offer decent performance, too, with a six-core AMD Ryzen 5 5500U CPU and twice the RAM and four times the solid-state storage usually included on most other laptops at this price. You usually find 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD on offer in a budget laptop, so the 16GB of memory is a welcome surprise, and the 1TB SSD is downright thrilling. Less thrilling is the 1,600x900-pixel resolution and 250-nit brightness rating of the 17.3-inch touchscreen display, but it should look sharp enough for basic tasks and bright enough as long as you don't plan on using it outside under natural sunlight.

Asus

OLED for the masses! This midrange laptop from Asus boasts a 15.6-inch OLED display with 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution. Not only is it a step up from budget models that make you get by with a 720p screen, but it's also got an OLED panel that delivers stellar contrast. It's also thinner and lighter than any 15-inch budget model. Based on an 11th-gen Core i5 CPU and featuring 12GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, it has more memory and double the storage capacity that you'll find in most budget laptops. It also has both Type-A and Type-C USB ports, saving you from having to carry around an adapter. It's a good deal at its $800 list price and an even better deal at its current discount.

Dell's entry-level Inspiron has an admittedly drab, plastic chassis, but it serves up a full-HD (1,920x1,080-pixel), 15.6-inch touch display powered by an 11th-gen, quad-core Core i5 processor along with 16GB of RAM and a huge 1TB SSD. That's double the memory and storage space you usually find at this price.

Samsung's midrange Galaxy Book delivers a sleek, all-metal chassis at a price where plastic enclosures are usually on order. Inside, this 15.6-inch laptop is powered by an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The touch display is only so-so, but the Galaxy Book is otherwise a great value with its high style and solid mix of components at its current sale price at Best Buy.

Dell's top-end Inspiron 7000 two-in-one convertible boasts an all-aluminum chassis that's thinner, lighter and sturdier than the midrange Inspiron 5000, which features metal lids and keyboard decks but flimsy plastic bottom panels. This 14-inch model supplies AMD's powerful eight-core Ryzen 7 5700U CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 14-inch touchscreen has full HD resolution and can rotate 360 degrees into tablet mode.

Samsung

The second generation of Samsung's sleek Galaxy Book Pro laptop bumps you up to 12th-gen Intel Core processors and supplies a brighter AMOLED display and an improved webcam. This model features a 15.6-inch display that's rated for an impressive 500 nits of brightness. Above the display is a 1080p webcam, which produces a better image for video calls than a run-of-the-mill 720p camera. Like the previous-generation models, the Galaxy Book 2 Pro laptops are designed to work seamlessly with Galaxy phones and tablets. The core specs of this model are a 12th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.

Most 17-inch laptops are gaming monsters. The LG Gram 17 is neither a gaming laptop nor a monster. It lacks dedicated graphics to drive 3D games but is only 0.7 inch thick and weighs less than 3 pounds, making this 17.3-inch desktop replacement roughly the same weight as your typical 13.3-inch ultraportable. The spacious 2,560x1,600-pixel display is powered by an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and integrated Intel Iris Plus graphics. You also get a roomy 1TB SSD for storage and can save more than $450 on it right now.
