Our pick is well under a thousand dollars, but you can upgrade the RAM and even add an additional SSD via the extra bay. You get the latest, fastest Intel Skylake processor, and the reviews for the laptop are solid. For these reasons, without question, the ASUS K501UW-AB78 is the one I would buy if I needed to stay well under a thousand dollars.
Thanks for stopping by!
