What is it?
We love a good laptop deal, and saving $840 on a model with enough power to handle almost anything? That definitely qualifies. Get this: The Jumper 14-inch Laptop is down to $260 from its usual price of $1,100 and includes 12GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, and a processor that can reach 2.4GHz in speed. That's everything you need for daily work and even some lightweight gaming. What's not to love?
Why is this a good deal?
It's a $260 laptop. No, seriously — that's a fantastic price point for what this brings to the table, especially given the cost of its competitors. Let's be honest: A 75%-plus discount is just too great to pass up.
Why do I need this?
Right out of the gate, this laptop outpaces much of its competition in terms of specs. It has 12GB of RAM. Why does this matter? RAM is responsible for a lot of your computer's speed; if you like to have multiple tabs open or numerous programs running at once, you need a lot of RAM.
Next up is the SSD (solid state hard drive). At 256GB, that's quite a bit of storage — about the same as a mid-level phone, and more than enough for anything work-related unless you're storing large images and video files. If you want to edit a movie, you probably should look into more memory.
The four-core processor isn't the fastest option out there, but it reaches up to 2.4GHz in speed and has a decent integrated graphics chip. You won't be able to run any games on max settings, but if you like to play Counter Strike or League of Legends, you should be able to without any difficulty.
What reviewers say:
"I needed a laptop that allowed me to finish a book I was writing and to create the cover art and this laptop delivered everything that I needed. Fast enough to run the programs I need and economical. I have not found the touchpad in the middle to be overly sensitive and I like the embedded number pad that facilitates work in Excel. I recommend this laptop," wrote one wordsmith.
"Great for non-tech savvy people," another user said. "I love the step by step instructions it gives. I’m not tech savvy so those help me so much when I’m calculating my budget or checking my calendar for upcoming appointments and more. Teaches me as it is helping me to stay organized to."
Another customer chimed in, "The size of the keyboard and mouse pad are fantastic. The screen is a great size for entertainment web browsing and school work. 365 does not come with this laptop and you will need an account in order to access word PowerPoint and other office needs. You can easily manage those with a OneDrive account and or Google account. I would definitely buy again. One downside is I wish it had more USB ports."
