Best Early Cyber Monday Laptop Deals As Black Friday Ends

This story is part of Gift Guide, our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.

Black Friday is over but Cyber Monday is fast approaching. That means discounts on laptops, including many of the best laptops of 2022, are still out there. From Apple MacBooks to Chromebooks to the Microsoft Surface 8, we've listed deals for all kinds of laptops, and many of these discounts are some of the best offers you'll see for months. 

Whether you're doing some early holiday shopping or just looking to upgrade your current laptop, you should find some savings, inculding savings on newer models with Intel's current chip family, the 12th-gen Core chips and AMD Ryzen 6000-series processors.

Best early Cyber Monday laptop deals and PC sales

HP has deep discounts on many of its Pavilion laptops. The HP Pavilion 14 is a budget laptop that looks and performs above its price. At 3.2 pounds (1.4 kilograms), the laptop can easily be a daily carry for school or work. It could also be a good home office laptop that can be easily connected to a monitor, keyboard and mouse at a desk, but also has a screen that's comfortably large enough for full-time use. It's just a solid everyday laptop with a clean design. The configuration we tested is normally $800 but is just $550 right now. For Black Friday and Cyber Monday, HP even has discounts on the Intel and AMD customizable versions -- a rarity -- so you can choose the exact specs you want.

The highlight of this Lenovo two-in-one Chromebook is its 11th-gen Intel Core i3 CPU, which is common to many budget Windows laptops and has more than enough oomph to power the lightweight Chrome OS. The Flex 5i features a 13.3-inch touchscreen with a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution. It offers USI pen support, but you need to buy a stylus separately.

We often call the MacBook Air the most universally useful laptop you can buy. Although it was recently updated with a larger display and Apple's latest M2 chip, it also got a higher starting price. The good news is the M1 MacBook Air is still available and remains a fantastic choice for most people in need of an ultraportable everyday laptop. For a base price of $999, and often on sale for at least $100 less, it's a great value, considering these tank-like laptops can last for years. Right now, though, you can get one for $200 off.

The Triton 500 SE is a slim 16-inch gaming laptop with a regular starting price of $2,100, but this one is fully loaded: 12th-gen Intel i9-12900H, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, 32GB LPDDR5 RAM and a 1TB solid-state drive. And you get a 240Hz G-Sync display. We've seen it on sale for $2,500 a couple of times this year, but this is the lowest it's been. It can get pretty hot while gaming, but that never hurt performance when we tested it. Just make sure it has room to breathe, and you'll be able to play the latest games at full resolution and image quality.

Acer knows how to put together good laptops at low prices. The Aspire 5 is one of our favorites for the home that's also portable enough for the occasional trip. It's a 15.6-inch laptop with a 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 5700U CPU and 16GB of RAM. You also get a 512GB solid-state drive. Most laptops at this price supply only 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. Plus, it has a large port assortment including Gigabit Ethernet and an HDMI out.

The Dell XPS 13 is a great pick if you like the look of the MacBook Air but prefer Windows or don't want to pay Apple prices. The XPS 13 normally starts at this price but you don't get this souped-up configuration: a 12th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB high-speed DDR5 memory and a 512GB SSD in a metal body that weighs less than 3 pounds. The design is pretty slick, but it weirdly lacks a headphone jack (USB-C adapters are included though). This deal expires at 8 a.m. ET on Nov. 27.

HP

The HP Pavilion x360 14 has a premium look and feel at an affordable price. But even for a Pavilion, this is a superb deal. This 14-inch, full-HD, two-in-one laptop weighs less than 3.5 pounds and has the latest 12th-gen Intel Core i5-1235U processor, 8GB of RAM, a 512GB solid-state drive and integrated graphics. Extras include a fingerprint reader for fast sign-ins and a 5-megapixel webcam for sharper, more detailed video chats. Grab this before the discount expires on Nov. 26 at 11:59 p.m. CT.

The Surface Pro 8 is a great choice if you want a tablet that can also double as a laptop. (Note that there's also a Surface laptop, which is an entirely separate device.) It's not the most recent entry in the Surface Pro line, but the specs are largely the same, and you can save a few hundred dollars by going with the 8. Save $400 by going with the 256GB SSD or $300 with the 512GB or 1TB SSD.

Our pick for the best 14-inch, two-in-one laptop, the Lenovo Yoga 9i is a great option if you're looking for a multifunctional device. Powered with 12th-gen Intel CPUs, the Yoga 9i offers more power than your average convertible laptop. It's especially good for work and school, thanks to the OLED display.

HP's Envy line falls just below its ultrapremium Spectre models. That means with laptops like this 15.6-inch two-in-one, you still get a lot of higher-end features like a 5-megapixel webcam with a privacy shutter and an aluminum body, but the internal components skew more toward power efficiency than the fastest possible performance. Make no mistake, though, this Envy x360 should deliver great performance with a 12th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of memory and a 512GB solid-state drive for just $800 -- $300 off. There's also an AMD version with half the memory and storage for only $500 which should be plenty for average home office use. Best Buy's deal ends Nov. 26 at 11:59 p.m. CT.

The Inspiron 16 Plus is one of our favorite laptops for creators on a budget, and you can get it at an even better price for Black Friday. This configuration comes with a 12th-gen Intel i7 CPU and an RTX 3060 GPU, plus a 1TB SSD. The display is perfect for anyone just starting out with web content, and the 16-inch size gives you plenty of room in the keyboard and touchpad.

Newegg

The highlight of this 16-inch model from Asus is its 4K, 16:10 OLED display. An OLED panel supplies incredible contrast and vivid colors, and this one should also provide a sharp picture with its fine 3,840x2,400-pixel resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio, which provides more room vertically than a widescreen 16:9 panel. It's rare to find an OLED panel at this price, especially with 4K resolution. Inside, it features an octa-core AMD Ryzen 7 5800H CPU along with a sufficient 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD. You can save $200 on it right now at Newegg.

Apple

The baseline model of the 14-inch MacBook Pro costs $1,999 and features an eight-core M1 Pro chip, a 14-core GPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB solid-state drive. You can save $400 on it right now at Amazon -- that's the biggest discount we've seen yet for one of Apple's most useful and powerful MacBooks. It's an unquestionably great deal, but an M2 Pro update is expected soon -- likely before the end of 2022.

Apple's current-gen MacBook Air is down to a record-low price at Amazon and Best Buy right now with $150 off. This 2022 model is powered by Apple's M2 chip and boasts a larger 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display. The base-spec model includes a 256GB SSD though the 512GB version is also on sale.

Most 17-inch laptops are gaming monsters. The LG Gram 17 is neither a gaming laptop nor a monster. It lacks dedicated graphics to drive 3D games but is only 0.7 inch thick and weighs less than 3 pounds, making this 17.3-inch desktop replacement roughly the same weight as your typical 13.3-inch ultraportable. The spacious 2,560x1,600-pixel display is powered by a 12th-gen Core i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM and Intel Iris Xe graphics. You also get a roomy 512GB SSD for storage and can save $400 on it right now.

What should you look for in a laptop deal?

One of the biggest things to consider is which laptop configuration is on sale. Often, with the best laptop deals, only a specific version of the laptop is on sale and making any changes to it could affect the price. This means that sometimes you find the 512GB model is actually cheaper than the 256GB option, or a similar situation.

When are the best laptop deals available?

Generally, you'll find the best laptop deals during back-to-school shopping time in late summer or early fall and a bit later in the year during annual Black Friday sales events. There are laptop deals available throughout the year, but if you're looking for the best deal and can afford to wait a little, these are the best times of the year to buy one.

Which retailers usually offer the best laptop deals?

You can usually find deals across a variety of retailers when it comes to laptop sales. Best Buy, Amazon, Newegg and other retailers tend to offer sales on more specific models while manufacturers like HP, Lenovo and Dell usually host larger sales that cover more models and configurations. If you're looking for a specific model, you'll want to keep checking back weekly for the latest set of deals.
