Thanks to the pandemic forcing everyone to work from home or attend classes online, laptops became an even bigger necessity this year. However, laptops can wear a hole in your wallet like many gadgets depending on the brand and model you go for.
Do not worry if you’re not willing to spend so much just on a laptop. There are some pretty great options for laptops that are under $1,000 that you can buy. These include laptops from well-known brands such as Asus, HP, and more.
Here are the must-have laptops under $1,000 in 2021:
Asus ZenBook 13 OLED
An article by Digital Trends describes the first laptop on our list as “the best overall laptop you can buy for less than $1,000.” Digital Trends cites the Asus ZenBook 13 OLED’s screen, 15-hour long battery life, and the Ryzen 7 5700U as the reasons behind the high praise for the laptop.
The rather ordinary design of the Asus ZenBook 13 OLED might be a turn-off for those who are rather picky when it comes to laptop design, but those who are looking for a thin and light laptop should consider this as one of their options.
If the Asus ZenBook 13 OLED doesn’t quite fit your tastes, Asus has other ZenBook 13 laptops under $1,000. These include Asus ZenBook 13 UM325S and Asus ZenBook 13UX325EA.

Asus ZenBook 14
If the Asus ZenBook 13 OLED is Digital Trends’ best laptop under $1,000, the Asus ZenBook 14 is the pick of PC Guide.
PC Guide lists the laptop’s lightweight battery life, an Intel Core i7 processor -1165G7 CPU as some of its pros, while the lack of an audio jack is its only con. However, the lack of the audio jack is made up for by the presence of a USB-C port.
Other specs of the Asus ZenBook 14 include a 14-inch display, 1920×1080 resolution, backlit keyboard, WiFi 6, and 512 GB SSD.
MacBook Air M1
Those looking for power-efficient laptops under $1,000 should consider the MacBook Air M1. Digital Trends describes the M1 chip as very powerful, making it ideal for anyone in need of a long-lasting laptop, such as college students.
The ultrathin MacBook Air M1 also has an 8GB memory as well as a 256 GB SSD.
Microsoft Surface Pro 7
The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 is one of the laptops under $1,000 ideal for those working. According to PC Guide, “The compact, lightweight design of the Surface laptop and laptop/tablet orientations suit professionals always on the move that need a reliable device.”
The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 has 8GB RAM, Intel Core i5-1035G4, and 256 SSD. What makes it even better is that there are other options for these specs if the aforementioned ones do not suit your needs.
