With Black Friday just a few weeks away, many major retailers are kicking things off with advance sales. Walmart’s first Black Friday event has already begun, and with it comes a great deal on Gateway notebooks. Yes, Gateway is making new laptops, and you can save $270 with this deal.
It’s been a long time since Gateway laptops were a thing, but thanks to a deal with Acer and Walmart, they’re hitting shelves again. This particular collection on sale for Black Friday, available in black, blue, green, and rose gold colors, is regularly priced at $699. However, knocking $270 off brings the price down to just $429.
That’s not a price to dismiss, especially considering the hardware inside. You get a 10th Gen Intel Core i5-1035G1 processor (CPU), 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD). This laptop should easily cut through most productivity work, and the 14.1-inch FHD display is a nice medium between 13- and 15-inch laptops. Not too big, not too small.
A fingerprint reader allows for Windows Hello authentication, and a Kensington lock slot helps keep the laptop where you left it. Ports include USB-C, two USB-A, HDMI, and a microSD card reader, making it easy to connect most accessories. Overall, this is a great little laptop for students or casual users who need an extra screen around the house. It’s not going to handle gaming or intensive applications, but it’ll do just about everything else.
