If you are in the market for a new laptop, 2-in-1 convertible or Microsoft Surface , now might be a good time to pull the trigger on a purchase. There are a number of big discounts to be had at Best Buy -- up to $500 in savings. (The 2017 MacBook Pro is also on sale as well as a trio of Chromebooks.)

Here are a handful of highlights of the best deals. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of products featured on this page.

You'll flip for these 2-in-1 convertible deals

This midrange Dell Inspiron features an eighth-generation Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of memory and a 256GB SSD. The 13.3-inch touch display has a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution and can be rotated 360 degrees into tablet mode.

This 13-inch Samsung convertible is pricier than the Dell Inspiron above because it bumps you up to an eighth-gen Core i7 processor. The other core specs are the same: 8GB of memory, a 256GB SSD and a Full HD, rotatable touch display.

The Lenovo Yoga 920 is the company's premium two-in-one ultraportable. It serves up an eighth-gen Intel Core i7, 16GB of memory and a 512GB SSD. More impressively, the 13.9-inch delivers 4K resolution for an ultrasharp image.

If the above Yoga 920 is beyond your budget, this model might fit the bill. You still get an eighth-gen Core i7-8550U CPU and 8GB of RAM, but you must settle for a 256GB SSD and 1,920x1,080 resolution on the 13.9-inch touch display.

Save on Microsoft Surface models

Sarah Tew/CNET

Best Buy is offering a $200 discount on many Microsoft Surface models, but this entry-level model -- the older, first-gen 2017 version -- will save you $500. It features a seventh-generation Core i5 chip, 8GB of memory and a 256GB SSD. Its 13.5-inch touch display boasts a crisp 2,256x1,504 resolution. And it comes in blue, burgundy, gold and platinum.

You can also save $500 on this slightly higher-end configuration of the same 2017 model. It features a seventh-gen Core i7 chip, 8GB of memory and a 256GB SSD -- along with the same 13.5-inch display. It's a great deal but only if you have warm feelings for a winey red, as the only color available is burgundy.
