Best Laptops under $1000 with Backlit Keyboards USA 2022
One of the most common requests I get is for recommendations on what to buy when you have a budget. These days it seems like everyone has a budget of at least $1000, but they want something that does everything well. So today I’ll give my top 6 laptops under $1000 with backlit keyboards.
One thing to note is that great battery life is usually not attainable at this price level. Having said that, the Acer Aspire V15 which was ranked #1 by Laptop Magazine for battery life will be missed on this list because it costs more than $1000.
#6 HP Envy 15t
This beautiful laptop has a great screen and good specs for its low price tag of under $800. You get 8GB RAM, a 1TB HDD with 16GB of Optane Memory caching software, and an AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics card. One cool feature of the HP Envy series is their exclusive Beats Audio speakers which are particularly good with bass. This makes the music listening experience especially good on this machine. If you want to spend less money but still want a great laptop, the Lenovo Flex 5 is $650 and has an all-metal body.
#5 Asus VivoBook F510UA
If you want a backlit keyboard and don’t mind spending a little bit extra, the Asus VivoBook F510UA will not disappoint. Of course, it’s no gaming laptop, but it performs admirably in its price range. It comes with 8GB RAM, an i5 7th generation Kaby Lake processor (which means it can be overclocked), and Nvidia 940MX graphics for light games like Minecraft and League of Legends at medium to high settings. One unique feature of this laptop is its fingerprint reader which allows you to use Windows Hello to log into Windows quickly and easily.
#4 Lenovo Flex 5 14″
This laptop from Lenovo is a great choice if you want something large and beautiful that can do a lot of different things. At $650 its specs are impressive considering the price tag. It comes with an i5 7th generation Kaby Lake chip, 8GB RAM, and 1TB HDD with 16GB of Optane Memory caching software just like the HP Envy above. The big difference between these two models is not only the cooler color on the Lenovo Flex 5 but also its Nvidia 940MX graphics to make it a very capable gaming laptop as well as nice for schoolwork or browsing the web. If you want to save money on this machine, I recommend buying it without an SSD since it doesn’t make a noticeable difference in performance.
#3 Dell Inspiron i5577-5335BLK-PUS Gaming Laptop
For those of you looking for a gaming laptop on a budget, this is the best choice under $1000 by far. Not only does it come with an impressive 8th gen i7 processor and Nvidia 1060 graphics, but it also comes with 12GB RAM and 1TB HDD with 16GB Optane Memory caching software (similar to above). The big benefit of this laptop is that the GTX 1060 can handle AAA titles like GTA 5 and Overwatch at high settings on its 15″ 1080p screen. If you don’t mind spending more money on your next computer, I’d recommend getting this laptop with the 144Hz 1080p IPS panel upgrade.
#2 Lenovo Ideapad 320
Lenovo is perhaps one of the most well-respected laptop brands out there and for good reason. They make quality products at reasonable prices, and I can’t think of a better machine than their Ideapad line for this list. This laptop is great if you want something that will last and look beautiful like a more expensive model. It comes with an i5 7th generation Kaby Lake processor (which means it too can be overclocked), 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, and 16GB Optane Memory caching software similar to above. Unlike above, however, this laptop’s best feature is its gorgeous 15″ 1920×1080 matte display which is perfect for watching movies and looking at pictures. If you are able to spend a little bit more I highly recommend getting the upgraded version with an IPS panel.
#1 Acer Aspire E 15
There can only be one laptop on this list that’s the best, and in my opinion, it has to be this one from Acer. It comes with 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD (which is super fast), 1TB HDD, 7th gen i5 processor, and Nvidia 940MX graphics which is very capable of running many games at high settings. The only downside to this laptop is its low battery life which makes it not great for long trips or periods of time away from outlets, but fortunately, there are plenty of USB type C power banks that can help fix this problem. If you want a great laptop for school that will last and looks good, this is the best choice for under $1000.

When I first started my job, I asked for an upgrade of my basic Dell Vostro 1500 laptop (which was nothing special) for Christmas. My dad saw my post on Reddit and asked me if I wanted a MacBook instead. Of course, I said yes! After using it for around three years now, I think it’s finally time to (somewhat) review this magical device. If you like this Article then give me some recommendations on what I should be reviewing next! NOTE: Sorry for the bad photos, my camera died so I had to use my phone.
First of all, yes this is a long post and it’s an article about laptops so if you don’t care about laptop reviews keep scrolling until you see the text again.
