TL;DR: The no-frills Dell Vostro 14 3000 laptop (1TB) is already an affordable choice, but you can get it for $299 with code BIZLT299 — a 62% savings.
Now that the big iPhone announcement has passed, the tech community is looking forward to Apple’s next big reveal. If it’s anything like last year’s schedule, the predicted October 2019 Apple Event could bring new a MacBook Pro.
But going for the best-of-the-best specs just doesn’t make sense for every situation, especially when Apple charges $1,000 a pop. For more casual use, especially for those looking to arm their employees with some great tech, you can get the bare-bones Dell Vostro 14 3000 laptop for $299 with code BIZLT299. The deal has been on and off since early September, but it ends for good on Sept. 21.
There’s no beating around the bush: This chunk of a laptop isn’t going to get you 4K streaming, Photoshop capabilities, or any compliments on looks. However, the simple approach and low price point is perfect for small businesses or side hustles that just need to cover basics like emailing, internet browsing, and running some light apps. LaptopMag’s reviewer was working with 11 Chrome tabs open before noticing any lag.
For a cheap laptop, this Vostro’s 1TB hard drive is pretty impressive. That’s more than enough to hold important files that need to be with you 24/7 (technically, that’s over 18 million four-page documents). The memory can also be expanded to 2 SoDIMM and 16GB DDR4.
Regularly $780.42, you can save just over $480 (over 60%) and get the laptop for $299.
