Deal | MSI Modern 14 laptop is at its cheapest ever for just $350 USD with Core i3 CPU and 1080p IPS display
Best Buy is currently hosting a sale on the 14-inch MSI Modern 14 for $150 USD off the already low original launch price. This particular model is an entry-level Ultrabook in contrast to the pricier Prestige series or Summit series from the same manufacturer.
Key specifications are relatively low with the 10th gen Core i3-10110U CPU, meager 8 GB of RAM, and 128 GB SSD. When compared to other laptops in the same price range, however, the system is still significantly faster than the usual Atom or Celeron-powered models that are all too common. If you mostly do word processing, video streaming, or web browsing, then this affordable Modern 14 should be near the top of your list.
