Slim pickings with laptop deals at the moment, but this seems like a good price for a laptop with the newest AMD Ryzen 7 processor 4700U, 512GB solid state drive, and a full HD display. Selling for $1499+ at most other sites.
A laptop with specs like this, especially that Ryzen processor, should be more than capable for quite some time to come.

Shopping Express also has other offers on some good Asus laptops here, but I think this is the pick of them in terms of specs and price.
