Asus ROG Strix Hero for $1,040 (save $210)

Sarah Tew/CNET

This Strix laptop features a 15.6-inch FHD display, an eighth-gen Intel Core i7 CPU and GTX 1050 Ti graphics, 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 128GB SSD plus a 1TB FireCuda SSHD. It’s a considerably more powerful configuration than the one we tested last year — and we liked that one a lot. This is a good deal on a robust collection of components.

Alienware m17 for $1,800 (save $200)

Sarah Tew/CNET

This is a good price for the not-quite-top-of-the-line m17, configured with a six-core eighth-gen Intel Core i7-8750H CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Max Q graphics chip. Battery life isn’t great, but the m17 has future-proof brute force and makes fewer design sacrifices than comparably robust laptops. 

iPad (32GB, 9.7-inch, current model): $249 (save $80)

Sarah Tew/CNET

Reminder: Apple’s 2018 iPad is still great for basic tasks like watching video, browsing the web, perusing Instagram and playing games. And it’s nearly always on sale these days for $249, or $80 off the list price.
