HP is also offering price cuts on the Chromebook x360. Another pocket-friendly line, the Pavilion, is cheaper by $200 to $300 for its 13″, 14″, x360, and Aero models.

With HP laptops, durability, good battery backup, and connectivity options are given. It makes good sense for anyone who needs unplugged, sturdy usage – while working on a college assignment of fighting enemies in the arena.

True to its portfolio that caters to versatile needs excellently, Lenovo has announced discounts for different audiences. Business folks will love the massive price cuts on the ThinkPad – a traditionally sought-after range by professionals that has stood the test of time.

A crucial area for this brand is portable performance, from Chromebooks and IdeaPads. The Lenovo 3i Chromebook is now only $264.99, down 40% from its MRP. You should check out the IdeaPad Flex and Slim lines for working on the go. The latter lets you enjoy Dolby Audio sound, a quick-charging battery, and a military-grade build.

The Legion series is a part of Memorial Day deals as well. Known for above-par performance in thin, sleek profiles, Lenovo Legion devices like the Pro 5i/7i are cheaper by $300 to 400. Since these laptops are expensive and deliver satisfying gaming performance, every bit matters.

Lenovo has emerged as one of the shiniest brands this Memorial Day for its magnificent discounts. The savings can be enormous; the quality is terrific. Plus, there’s something for everybody.

ASUS: Gaming laptop discounts

This year’s focus for ASUS is on the ASUS ROG Strix G16. The popular gaming machine is cheaper this season – selling at around $1,300. It delivers top-notch performance for most modern AAA games, thanks to RTX 4050 graphics, a MUX Switch for optimization, and dependable heat management. Or, you could go for the discounted ASUS ROG Strix G16 with an Intel Core i9 processor and 1TB of storage space.

Apple: More Affordable MacBooks

Now is a chance to consider getting a MacBook – if you have been eying it for a while. Apple offers the 14″ MacBook Pro for approximately $2,100 to $2,500. These machines get powered by M2 Pro or M2 Max and are brilliant for demanding multimedia work. The 1000 nits brightness, comfortable keyboard, and long battery life (18 hours+) make it convenient for travel too.


Until when will Memorial Day deals 2023 last?

Typically, many sales last until the holiday, which falls on May 29, 2023. Some retailers may extend their discounts till the weekend (around June 3). We recommend grabbing any offers that catch your fancy sooner rather than later (with due thought, of course!). Not many brands will extend these discounts to the next month, but a select few might push it up to the middle of June.

Should you shop on Memorial Day or Prime Day?

Like Memorial Day, another mega shopping festival is coming up in mid-July (or thereabouts) – Amazon Prime Day. As a buyer, you might get tempted to wait or plunge right now – it can be quite a predicament. Both occasions have mega savings: up to 70% or more off on top laptop brands isn’t unheard of. Prime Day is a better option for Amazon hardware or devices like a Kindle. But Memorial Day deals on laptop brands like Lenovo, Dell, and HP are too exciting to waste.

What precautions should you take while shopping for Memorial Day deals?

Our top tip is never to forget price comparisons. Multiple retailers run these discounts (both online and brick-and-mortar). Cautious shoppers should compare the prices and brands before sealing the deal. Also, while many offers may seem brilliant, they may incorporate hidden charges or excluded items you may not have noticed. Reading product reviews – on trusted sites – is a clever way to navigate through the noise and make an informed decision. 

So, which deals have got your eyes glittering? Year after year, Memorial Day offers a golden opportunity to upgrade your laptop; electronics are a popular category discounted. Since the 2023 outlook covers business, personal, and entertainment choices, not to forget some dirt-cheap ones, you have reason enough to loosen those purse strings.
