Everyone loves a good sale, and this laptop deal is one of the best we’ve seen this year (or last year!). The Sgin 15.6-inch laptop is down to $360 from its usual price of $1,334 – that’s a whopping 73% off. This baby is a Clydesdale-level workhorse with 12GB of RAM and a 512GB internal drive that rivals or beats most other laptops in this price range in terms of power. It’s everything you need to work from home and impress your boss!
Who is Sgin?
The Sgin brand has been around since 2007. The company has been quietly producing notebooks and laptops ever since and has established itself as an underrated but reliable option. While the laptops are generally more budget-friendly devices, the internal components come from reputable manufacturers. Sgin also offers a one-year warranty on all purchases, should you experience a malfunction.
Lightweight and portable
Despite the amount of power packed into this laptop, it has a thin shell and weighs just 1.7kg. You can easily pack it into a carrying case for working on the go. The wide variety of ports allows you to connect mice, keyboards and even external monitors to suit your personal workflow.
“Excellent laptop. The top features are definitely 5 stars: screen quality, battery life and light weight. It’s a thin, high quality laptop. I didn’t know much about the brand so I looked up reviews before buying. I agree is an underrated brand. I can use it for all my work needs, while my daughter can use it for her gaming needs and future school needs,” said a 5-star reviewer. “Installation was quick and easy! … The battery charges quickly and Windows is ready to go. … Overall I’d say it’s a great value for all the features.”
One feature that caught our attention was the 12 GB of RAM. Most laptops come with 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM, and gaming laptops come with 16 GB or more. This laptop falls right in the middle of those numbers, giving it plenty of power to tackle things like Photoshop or video rendering.
This is matched by the 2.9 GHz processor that powers the entire machine. You can even expand the internal memory up to another 512 GB for a total of more than 1 TB of storage with a TF card.
“This laptop is great for editing videos and photos. The screen is large and videos play very smoothly,” said one satisfied customer. “The keyboard is nice and quiet, at least compared to the keyboard on my [old] computer. The laptop can also run some games that are not very demanding in the graphics department. The large amount of storage space is also very useful. All in all, I give this laptop 5 out of 5 stars.”
This is a fantastic deal for a laptop at this power level. One thing to note is that despite these specs, it does not made for hardcore gaming. It uses built-in graphics rather than a dedicated graphics card, so while it can handle a few undemanding games, you won’t be able to play anything like Cyberpunk 2077 on this.
Outside of gaming, however, the multiple ports allow for plenty of workspace setup versatility, while the impressive amount of RAM, internal storage, and processor speed make it a more powerful option than almost anything else you’ll find at this price point.
