Best Buy drops prices on HP and Asus 2-in1 laptops by $50 and $130

You don't need a refund to cash in on Best Buy's 'tax time' sale.

If you’ve already got your tax refund, Best Buys some great ways for you to maximize it. The big box retailer is running a huge sale this weekend, and these two 2-in-1 laptops caught our eye: There’s a 15.6-inch Asus premium 2-in-1 for $700 instead of the usual $800-plus price tag, and a lower end 11.6-inch HP 2-in-1 for $350—good for about $50 off the usual price.

The Asus model features a 15.6-inch 1080p display, quad-core 1.6GHz Intel Kaby Lake R Core i5-8250U that can boost to 3.4GHz, 12GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive. That makes for a pretty nice laptop, but keep in mind that it uses Intel's integrated UHD Graphics 620 rather than discrete graphics. Even so, it’s capable of Direct X12 gaming and should be good enough for some entry-level gaming. It's not the lightest laptop in the world, but it still clocks in under the five-pound “break your back” limit at 4.19 pounds.

The HP 2-in-1 has an 11.6-inch display with 1366-by-768 resolution, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. That’s not bad for $350, though the 1.1Ghz Intel Pentium processor with Intel HD 505 graphics leaves a bit to be desired. However, the whole package is very light at 3.06 pounds.

The sale on both laptops lasts until Saturday.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
