Staples laptop sale: up to 40% off deals from $199
Staples is taking up to 40% off select laptop during its latest sale. After discount, laptops start from $199. The sale includes MSI, Asus, HP, Microsoft, Lenovo, and more. It includes mainstream machines as well as a few gaming-oriented rigs. 

If you're looking for an everyday machine, the Asus VivoBook 15 for $529 (was $679) is a solid choice. It features a 15.6-inch 1080p LCD, Core i5-1240P CPU, 12GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. We like this machine because it includes 12GB of RAM, instead of the standard 8GB. That should allow for a little more flexibility when running multiple applications.
