'Straightforward and very fast': This popular laptop is a steal at $220 — that's almost 80% off

It may be from a little-known brand, but this compact computer holds its own against the big names, shoppers say.

The Sgin brand has been around since 2007, quietly producing quality notebooks and laptops while establishing itself as an under-sung but reliable tech-world player. Though its laptops are budget-friendly, the components are sourced from reputable manufacturers, and Sgin offers a one-year warranty on all purchases. One bestselling model, the Sgin 15.6-inch laptop, is a particular steal at $220. It has 4GB of RAM and a 128GB internal drive — specs that meet or beat most other laptops in this price range. It's everything you need to work from home and keep your boss impressed — or everything you need to browse and stream, keeping yourself impressed.

This laptop boasts up to eight hours of battery life and improved airflow, thanks to a better-designed chassis and new fans.

Saving a bundle on a laptop is incredible no matter what, but this sale is particularly impressive. You can grab a top-notch unit for nearly 80% off — it's a serious steal. You would pay over $100 just to buy Windows 11 (and it's included), which brings even more value to the table.

Despite the amount of power packed into this laptop, it has a thin shell and weighs just 3.7 pounds. You can easily slip it into a tote bag, and you can connect whatever accessories you need, such as a mouse or keyboard.

One feature that caught our attention was the 2.5GHz processor. That makes this laptop snappy enough for most tasks. Worth noting: It's not made for hardcore gaming. It uses onboard graphics instead of a dedicated graphics card, so while it can handle very light gaming, you won't be able to play something like Cyberpunk 2077 on this.

The multiple ports allow for a lot of versatility in workspace setup, while the impressive amount of RAM, internal storage and processor speed make it more powerful than almost anything else you'll find at this price.

Over 700 Walmart customers gave this laptop five stars, saying it's more than enough for everyday use.

Above all, shoppers say this laptop has the basics down pat. "The setup is straightforward and very fast, in particular when you set up using a Windows account. The computer has a nice sleek look. Kind of reminds me of a Mac," one reviewer said.

Another wrote about the brilliance of the screen: "This computer is just what I want for a home job. It's fast, light and the screen resolution is excellent."

One reviewer summed up the value of this laptop pretty clearly. "I liked it so much I bought two of them. I recommend them to all my friends and family."

Although most fans didn't have much to complain about, some said the battery could be improved. "The only downside I would say is that battery life isn't the best, but it's not terrible," reported one buyer.

Another shopper also said the touchpad may be a little too responsive: "The bottom of the mouse pad is the left/right click buttons which can easily get clicked unintentionally when moving around a page."

You could spend half this amount on Windows 11 software alone, so why not get a computer too?
