Cyber Monday Laptop Deal Tips

  • Ultrabook, gaming or budget? Pick a laptop deal that meets your needs.
  • Screen size matters:  13-14 inch laptops are most portable. Most gaming laptops are 15 inches. Anything about 15 won't fit on your laptop.
  • Resolution: 4K is sharp but eats more battery and requires more graphics power for gaming. 1080p is the sweet spot for most people.
