Your Best PC Deal.


Sep 12, 2021
Maybe tell us about the best deal you ever got on a PC. Mine came in March of 2020. I was in the market for a new laptop because my 2011 HP had become only capable of playing World of Warcraft and other games on the lowest settings. I looked around and decided on a new HP with a Ryzen 5 2500U processor and the integrated Vega 8 graphics. The Walmart website said they had it in stock at my local store for $749. I went down there and they didn't have any. I came back home and went back to and suddenly saw something amazing. An Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop with the same Ryzen 5 but also a dedicated RX 560X graphics card with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory. The price given was an astounding $479 with free shipping. I jumped on it fully expecting the purchase to not go through but it did. I got it a few days later and it has been excellent. I looked around on a number of sites and the lowest price I could find was $659. I have added another 8 GB of RAM and a 1 TB Crucial MX-500 SSD to it since and I love it. The only disappointment has been that the processor does not qualify for Windows 11 and I think that is pretty ridiculous but that's how it goes.
