Our Favorite 8 Laptops For Under $1,000

Rory

You don’t have to lose out on power and performance if you’re on a budget – and for our featured laptops, $1000 is a pretty decent budget. With new machines hitting the shelves every day, manufacturers are no longer reaching for the stars price wise with their higher spec machines – yes, some are ridiculously priced, but for an awesome all rounder or even something more specialized, such as our gaming laptops, you can get the ideal laptop for well under $1000.

But, with so many factors to consider, it can get confusing, so Laptop Den are here to help.

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

  • Processor: the standard 2 GHz performs very well for the majority of users, but this can be increased, depending on the demands you ask of it, and many find that 3+ GHz is more than enough for any purpose, including high spec hungry gaming.
  • RAM: whilst 4 GB will suit most users, if you plan to use your laptop for intense and immersive games, you may find that 8, 16, 32 GB and greater would be more suitable. Extra RAM is readily available, inexpensive and easily incorporated.
  • Battery life: most machines these days have great battery life; however, this does depend on whether you plan to stream movies, YouTube and games simultaneously and then any machine may struggle.
  • SSD Hard drive: SSDs offer vastly increased loading speeds for games or movies than the far less efficient HDD. They also use less energy and can cope with the mobility required of a laptop.

So, with $1000 to burn (and still have plenty of change) have a look through our tried and thoroughly tested laptops. We know you’ll find the one for you.
