Christmas Laptop Deals

Almost everybody needs a good laptop. Whether you’re a student or full-time worker, there’s a good chance you either need a laptop for your job or school. If you know somebody that perhaps really needs a new laptop because they have one that’s super old, consider buying them a refurbished laptop for Christmas.

How Much Should I Spend on a Laptop for Christmas?

The answer to this question obviously depends on your budget. If you want to spend the minimum amount possible on a laptop, then you’ll probably want to buy a Chromebook. These laptops are almost indestructible and are easy to use thanks to Google’s Chrome OS. You can find refurbished Chromebooks for around $100, but keep in mind that these aren’t the best devices for serious work. If you just want to take some notes or do some simple tasks on the web, though, a Chromebook should be enough for your needs. Just don’t get one that’s too old, since computers tend to slow down over time. Try to buy one that’s less than 3 years old if you want the ideal combination of value and performance; you’ll be able to find a Christmas Chromebook deal on our website that fits this criteria for under $300 :D

What if I Want a Windows Laptop for Christmas?

You’ll need to spend a little more money if you want to buy somebody a good Windows laptop for Christmas, probably at least $500. When it comes to Windows laptops, you’ll also want to stick to that same general rule of 3 years old or newer, but you’ll also want to pay attention to the specs of the laptop. If you’re buying a laptop for just regular everyday use, you’ll want it to have a Core i5 or i7 processor, at least 8GB of RAM, and at least 200GB of SSD storage. We suggest avoiding HDD storage, as this can be slower and less reliable in the long run.

Know Somebody that Really Wants a MacBook for Christmas?

If you want to buy somebody a laptop for Christmas, it’s important to note that a MacBook will probably be your most expensive option. But just because it’s the most expensive doesn’t mean that it won’t be worth it. I’m actually writing this on a 2014 MacBook Air that still runs great, but would suggest getting a newer model if you want to do more complex tasks such as video production or working with large data sets in Excel. Similar rules apply as for Windows laptops: go for a device with a Core i5 or i7 and at least 8GB of RAM.

Are You Going to Buy a Refurbished Laptop this Christmas?

If you want to buy somebody a laptop for Christmas and don’t want to spend a lot of money, the refurbished market is surely the way to go. Not only are refurbished laptops cheaper, they’re also better for the environment. We’re fighting to reduce overconsumption and e-waste, and buying a refurbished laptop is a good way to go against the toxic trend of always needing the newest gadget. And just like new tech products, our refurbished products come with a 1-year warranty and 30-day money-back guarantee.
