The best Cyber Monday and Cyber Week PC deals

The best time of the year for catching a deal is almost here. 

Here are the best Cyber Monday deals we've found so far, as well as Black Friday deals you can still get. We'll continue to update as more deals are revealed.

Holiday Gift GuideCNET's full gift guide, including dozens of products priced under $25, $50 and $100.

Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar for $1,799

B&H doesn't usually have a lot of great deals, but occasionally one pops up like this in-demand MacBook Pro. The 2.6GHz Core i7 model includes 16GB RAM and a 256GB SSD for $1,799, a last-generation model but a solid deal if you've been waiting to buy one. There's also another configuration for $2,100.

Apple iMac 27-inch for $2,100 ($200 off)

If you've been yearning to get an iMac, there's a decent discount off the 27-inch 2017 model at a few places, including B&H. It's not the top-end -- it's an Intel Core i5 -- but it's got a 2TB Fusion drive. Keep in mind that the newer Apple File System still doesn't support non-SSDs (the Fusion is a spinning drive with an SSD cache) if you're planning to upgrade to MacOS High Sierra.

See the Apple iMac 27-inch at B&H

Samsung CF791 34-inch Freesync monitor for $650 ($300 off)

We really liked the CF791 when we tested it, but felt that $950 was a little much for what it offered. Amazon has now dropped the price down to $650 -- a good deal for a big display with 144Hz refresh. And look how many cat photos you can fit on that screen!

Dell UltraSharp 24 U2417H for $220 ($130 off)

One of the better 24-inch basic monitors, at $220 the U2417H is a pretty good deal.

Dell UltraSharp 24 at Dell

HP Laptop 15-bs045nr​
6 of 24 HP

HP Laptop 15 for $530 ($540 off)

It's a fairly generic laptop, but at this price it's relatively cheap for a 7th-generation Core i7 and a touch display.

HP Laptop (15-bs045nr) at hp.com

Lenovo Yoga 920
7 of 24 Sarah Tew/CNET

Lenovo Yoga 920 for $1,400 at Best Buy ($300 off)

The Yoga 920's a great convertible, and this is a reasonable price -- plus, we don't see it anywhere else. It's a limited-time offer, but it's not clear when it ends.

Lenovo Yoga 920 at Best Buy

8 of 24 Josh Miller/CNET

Acer Convertible Chromebook R13 for $290 at Costco ($100 off)

It's big, but that just leaves space for more battery -- and this 2-in-1 Chromebook has the best battery life we've seen to date. If you're a Costco member, you can get it starting now.

HP Omen 17 (17-w210nr) for $979

We like the Omen 17 as a well-rounded gaming laptop that's not too expensive, and you can get this Core i7-7700HQ model with its big 17.3-inch HD display and an Nvidia 1050 Ti for only $979 from B&H.

PowerSpec 1510 gaming laptop for $1,250

Cyber Monday deals at Micro Center include the PowerSpec 1510 15.6-inch gaming laptop with an seventh-gen Core i7 processor, upper-midrange Nvidia GeForce 1070 GPU, 16GB of memory and dual storage drives including a 256GB SSD and a 1TB 7,200rpm HDD. The display is a full HD IPS LED-backlit LCD with Nvidia G-Sync for smoother gameplay. PowerSpec is Micro Center's house brand, so while you're not getting a big-name PC, you are getting a good deal.

Microsoft Surface Laptop
11 of 24 Sarah Tew/CNET

Save $199 on a Surface Laptop plus Harman Kardon Invoke speaker bundle

Cyber Monday is the last day Microsoft will offer bundles of its Surface Laptop with a Harman Kardon Invoke voice-activated speaker backed by the Cortana virtual assistant. The bundles include laptop configurations with a 256GB SSD and higher, which start at $1,300. The speaker alone will be on sale for $99 (regularly $199), so by bundling you're getting $100 off the laptop as well as the speaker.

12 of 24 Sarah Tew/CNET

Asus ROG Strix GL753 for $950

Costco members can get a crack at this high-end 17.3-inch gaming laptop for Cyber Monday (it's available in stores and online). That's $250 off of what was already a good deal.

13 of 24 Sarah Tew/CNET

Dell XPS 13 for $799

Microsoft has one of our favorite ultraportables for $500 off its regular price. The XPS 13 is the world's smallest laptop with a 13.3-inch display and for Black Friday you can get it with a touchscreen and an Intel Core i5-7200U processor, 8GB memory and a 128GB SSD on Nov. 27. 

14 of 24 Lori Grunin/CNET

Samsung 49-inch CHG90 for $1,199

If you were planning to buy this humongous 49-inch curved, Freesync 2-compatible monitor, now's the time. It's available for the manufacturer price of $1,499 everywhere, but Samsung will be offering it for $1,199 on Cyber Monday. 

15 of 24 Sarah Tew/CNET

Dell Ultrasharp 27 UP2718Q for $527

Not only is Dell's 27-inch 4K HDR monitor the only one that's actually shipped to support 1,000 nits -- per the HDR10 spec -- but the UP2718Q is a great monitor. Dell's offering it for $170 off list at $570, which is reasonable, but its regular pricing is actually cheaper almost everywhere else, like at B&H for $492. That's a really good price. And don't let Dell's $500-with-financing price fool you, since you'll still end up paying more overall.

16 of 24 Josh Miller/CNET

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 9.7 for $480

A small discount for this spectacular Android tablet. One of the best tablets around, the Galaxy Tab S3 features a kick-ass screen and beautiful design. 

17 of 24 Josh Miller

Samsung Galaxy Book (12-inch) for $950

If you're interested in a Microsoft Surface Pro alternative, the Samsung Galaxy Book is a flashy alternative. Its design is more like an iPad, but with Windows 10 running inside. It also includes a Bluetooth keyboard and stylus. 

18 of 24

Acer Aspire 3 A315-51-31GK for $260

Micro Center's Black Friday deals include the 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 3 for $260 through Dec. 3 -- the lowest we've seen. It's a simple system for basic tasks -- writing, email, web browsing -- with plenty of storage for your files.

19 of 24 Sarah Tew/CNET

Microsoft Surface Pro bundles on the cheap

Microsoft is discounting the Surface Pro with bundles. For example, you can save $330 on the convertible laptop with Intel's i5 CPU, 128GB SSD and cover or there's a similar bundle with the Surface Pro model that has 256GB SSD.

20 of 24

Samsung Galaxy Tab A Series

The 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A makes for a good first tablet or a basic e-reader. It won't blow you away with its speed, but its low price might be right in your wheelhouse.  

The ultracompact 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A offers 32GB of internal storage -- double than what's usually offered in entry-level tablets. For $200, it's not bad for using around the house to check emails, lurk Facebook or catch up on news.  

A big tablet doesn't have to have a big price tag. At $230, the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab A is a simple tablet that includes a stylus for easy note-taking in this Cyber Monday bundle. The bigger screen is better for watching a video, but it's otherwise comparable to the 8-inch model.

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming late 2017
21 of 24 Sarah Tew/CNET

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming

One of our favorite budget gaming laptops gets a price drop for Cyber Monday. For $899 you can get the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop with a Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, 256GB SSD and, most importantly, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card

Origin PC Eon17-x 2017
22 of 24 Sarah Tew/CNET

Save up to $800 on an Origin PC laptop or desktop

Custom PC-builder Origin is offering special packages for Cyber Monday buyers that include: a Samsung 250GB 960 Evo NVMe M.2 SSD, a $50 Amazon gift card, a Creative Labs sound card, gaming headset or keyboard, 50 percent off professional overclocking, free games including a free copy of Destiny 2 for PC. Origin will even ship it for free, which if you're buying a gaming PC isn't cheap. 

23 of 24 Josh Miller/CNET

Huawei Matebook X $300 off plus goodies

The Microsoft Signature Edition of the Huawei Matebook X is on sale at Amazon and Newegg for $300. The bundle includes MateDock 2.0 and Office 365 Personal.
