Any of you computer savvy folks seeing any good sales on laptops this week? My kids are going to need one each for online college soon, and we're thinking one for Christmas would work. Would like to stay in the $300-500 range (if thats doable?), like I said just something to support college work would be fine. TIA!

Watching the price of this one for my 14 year old granddaughter. She was one she can use for gaming as well. Not cheap but nope it goes down a little more for Black Friday or cyber Monday. Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 - 2022 - Everyday Gaming Laptop - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Graphics - 15.6" FHD Display - 120 Hz - AMD Ryzen 5 6600H - 8GB DDR5 - 258GB SSD - Win 11 - Free 3-month Xbox GamePass https://a.co/d/gCnoz2P

Guess I should add 2 things: 1- I live 2 hrs west of OKC, so I'd really need either online or Walmart deals; & 2- recommendations would be nice too, as I have no clue what all the specs mean on a computer!

You need at least 8gb of ram to run windows 11 in a reasonable manner. You want an ssd drive for performance. 256gb is okay, much more than that, the price goes up. I would get at least an i5 processor or a Ryzen 5 series. Also watch the battery life.
