ASUS K401, $570

If you’re in the market for a new Windows laptop, ASUS’s K401 is a fantastic rig for $570.

That gets you a 14" 1080p screen, a Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and NVIDIA GeForce 940M graphics. The one glaring weakness here is the 750GB HDD, but you could easily swap in an SSD later.
