Deal alert: The touchscreen laptop edition

By Ken Wong - 15 Mar 2021

Deal alert: The touchscreen laptop edition

My laptop at home finally had enough of my kids abusing it with their sticky fingers and stopped working. It had been a hardworking laptop that I’d first used for work and play and then let my kids use for their home-based-learning activities during the circuit breaker period last year.

They’d continued using it for school and tuition zoom calls, and the occasional call with relatives overseas. But it finally had enough with the battery no longer holding a charge, and the touchscreen flickering and going black.

So, I’ve been in the market for a replacement. I was looking for one with a touchscreen, was fairly light so my kids had no problems moving it around, and it also had to be cheap so it would pass my CFO approval. I still have a Microsoft Surface Go at home, so I was also looking for something other than that.

The following are some options I found.
