Mid-range laptops are usually not great. They're usually equipped with 4GB of RAM, a spinning hard drive, and maybe a 1366x768 screen. The Lenovo IdeaPad 330 is an exception, with its latest-gen Intel processor, 1080p screen, and 8GB of RAM. Right now you can get it for $499.99 from Newegg, a savings of $200 over the MSRP.
This config of the Lenovo IdeaPad 330 has an Intel i5-8250U processor, a 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, and a 15.6-inch 1920x1080 display. There's also a DVD drive, in case you need one of those. As you might expect at this price, there is no dedicated GPU, just Intel HD 620 integrated graphics.
