17 Inch Laptops Under $1,000 – Our Experts’ Top Picks

Rory

It used to be the case that the larger 17” screens were both bulky and expensive. Neither is true anymore. With internal components decreasing in size all the time, a large screen doesn’t require a large chassis, and the majority of models on the market today with a 17” display are lightweight, slim bezelled beauties, with an impressively svelte bod.

Along with the general laptop size decreasing, the prices are too, thanks to streamlined production processes, and the availability of cheaper, but still high quality, parts.

This means that our list of recommended 17” laptops for under $1000 contains a wide variety of machines to suit every purpose, whether you’re a gamer, business user, or you want a new home laptop for general purposes.

However, with so much jargon attached to each laptop, what should you be looking for?

What to look for when buying a 17” laptop for under $1000?

  • Processor: Processor speed is measured in gigahertz – GHz. The higher this number the faster the processor. To get the most power, and avoid that finger tapping wait for programs to load, you should really be looking at at least 2 GHz.
  • RAM: A lightweight system today can get by with 4GB of RAM. But most machines come with 8 or 16 RAM, and this is plenty for current and future applications.
  • Battery Life: This is dependant on how you plan to use your laptop. If you work whilst commuting, then a longer battery life is important, but if you sit at home with your machine in front of you, then it becomes less of a necessity.
  • SSD vs HDD: When shopping for a laptop, an SSD hard drive suits most users perfectly. Solid state drives deliver faster load times for programs, applications, and movies. Because of the technology, SSDs are also lighter, more durable and use less energy, keeping the computer cooler for longer.

So, if you’re after a new 17” laptop for under $1000, our featured models would suit your purposes perfectly. Tried and tested by Laptop Den, we stand by our winning laptops – why not have a browse?
