Every retailer that sells computers -- desktops and laptops, Chromebooks and gaming rigs, tablets and convertibles -- is looking to clear out inventory before the end of 2018. We're seeing lots of markdowns on older machines and configurations featuring Intel's previous seventh-gen processors. But that's not to say that there aren't any brand new systems with cutting-edge tech on sale. There definitely are.
The 40 best Cyber Monday 2018 deals still available
We're also seeing how increased competition in the tablet market is driving down prices this year. At the high end, the rash of newly announced tablets in October from Apple, Google and Microsoft have already yielded one dynamite deal: a brand-new Microsoft Surface Pro bundled with a Type Cover keyboard for $800 at Best Buy. (The Black Friday version of this bundle, which also included the Pen, is now gone.)

As always, remember the caveats. Most of these deals will end after today, though some will go on indefinitely. In addition:

CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.
The $250 Walmart deal is gone, but Best Buy has a 32GB version of the current iPad with a built-in LTE antenna for a sweet $259. But, there's a catch -- you need to sign up for two years of Verizon LTE service for your device.
It's not as sweet at the Black Friday deal, which also included the Pen, but Best Buy's bundle still rocks: You get a brand new Surface Pro 6 with Intel Core i5 and a Surface Type Cover for $799. The Pen tacks on another $99, but this complete set usually retails for more than $1,100.
Amazon is discounting a bunch of its Kids' tablets, including the Fire HD 10. At $100, the non-Kids version with Alexa Hands-Free is a total steal (it had been sold out, but is now back in stock). Other retailers, including Best Buy, offer similar prices for that model. Amazon's discounts on its kids' tablets include:
This is the brand new MacBook Air, equipped with a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor, a 13.3-inch Retina display (with a 2,560 by 1,600-pixel resolution) and integrated Intel UHD Graphics. There are multiple configurations on sale -- but the best deal is on the base model, with a 128GB hard drive and 8GB of RAM, which costs $1,099 in any color -- gold, silver or space gray. Sure, it was $30 cheaper for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but this is still a good deal.
As of 11:30 a.m. ET, Nov. 26, the 128GB version is out of stock, but it's available for preorder at the same price.
Apple announced a new, more expensive of the beloved MacBook Air in October and B&H has the previous edition discounted to $879. It's a good deal -- you get a fifth-gen Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB hard drive -- on an older, though still great, laptop, if you can deal with the lower-resolution screen.
Best Buy previously had it for $800 but that deal has expired.
Staples has a 14-inch HP Pavilion laptop equipped with an Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive for $460 (it was previously $370). Without an SSD, it may not be super fast -- so keep that in mind. It's still about $100 or so less than we'd normally expect to pay, but the best price has already come and gone.
The deal appears to be sold out online, but is still available for pickup in some stores.
This remains a solid deal on a good machine with a slightly older, though high-end processor. You get a 15.6-inch touchscreen with a seventh-gen Core i7 CPU plus 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive. The "list" price of $1,200 is ridiculous, but this is still a couple hundred less than I'd expect for a Core i7 touchscreen laptop.
Lots of retailers have deals going on this machine. Office Depot has added $100 back onto the price of the HP model 15-da0086od, but it's still a nice price for a system that features some killer components including a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and an enormous 1TB hard drive.
Like many of the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, this one has shot up by $100 from its best price, but is still nicely discounted. The Flex 5's 15.6-inch display gives you more room for work and, complemented by its speakers, makes it good for video, music and games. It also has plenty of battery life to get you through the day.
We're fans of Origin PC, and its Eon15-S, which includes some features you don't normally see in a gaming system at this price: support for three external monitors, including one with G-Sync support, and a removable battery. In addition to discounting the system by more than $200, the company is also throwing in some extras with some configurations:
A digital copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
A digital Steam key for SCUM
A free Star Trek: Online Gamma Vanguard starter pack and Tier 6 Archon Class Assault Cruiser
Other desktops and laptops include your choice of bonus extras, from gift cards to bigger hard drives.
OK, so it's not a "bargain" necessarily, but if you were looking for a slim big-screen laptop for gaming or content creation you can save yourself some serious coin with this Blade Pro deal. At this price, you're getting a lot of processing and graphics performance, along with extras including a color-accurate 4K-resolution touchscreen and a mechanical keyboard. Razer is also offering the same price on its online store.
Chromebooks are often so inexpensive that retailers have a difficult time marking them down more -- even during Black Friday. We haven't reviewed this particular 14-inch Chromebook by HP but the specs look decent at this price.
