This is essentially a creative computer (it even comes with a pen!, but thanks to the discrete GPU, it can also be used as a normal laptop or for light gaming.

Perhaps you’d prefer something with a little more GPU oomph?

Instead, consider the $699.99 Acer Nitro 5, which is $250 discount for Black Friday.

Behind a 144Hz 1080p screen, Acer’s cheap gaming laptop features an Intel Core i5-10300H engine and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 graphics.

The ConceptD has a pull-forward design, which allows you to easily pull the screen forward, supported by the hinge, for inking or a close-up view of streaming media.

It can also be folded flat. We’d describe the Surface Laptop Studio as having a more refined feel, with a smoother hinge.

The ConceptD, on the other hand, is more durable — and, as the pricing indicates, a lot less expensive. Take advantage of it while you can, as there are just a few left.
