Samsung makes two versions of its 12.3-inch two-in-one Chromebook and both are $100 off for Black Friday, direct from Samsung. The Plus and Pro are pen-enabled Chromebooks with 360-degree hinges and support for the Google Play store so they can run Android apps and Chrome OS web apps. The main difference is the processor: The Plus has an ARM-based processor made for Chromebooks, while the Pro has an Intel Core m3 chip. For Black Friday the Plus is $350 and the Pro is $450 from Nov. 19 to 25.
Samsung has Black Friday deals on its Windows 10 two-in-ones, too. If you want a bigger screen and discrete graphics, go with the 15-inch version with AMD Radeon 540 graphics. The 13.3-inch model is more about portability than graphics power swapping the Radeon for integrated Intel HD Graphics 620. Both are $200 off for Black Friday if you buy direct from Samsung from Nov. 19 to 25.
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 $1,899, a solid deal if you've been waiting to buy one. There's also another configuration for $2,100.
We recently reviewed this lower-cost touchscreen hybrid and liked it a lot. This Core i5 version available from Staples is already on sale for $599 (normally $779), but for Black Friday, it'll drop even further to $579.
Dell is selling its just-released, budget-friendly gaming laptop at a decent discount on Black Friday. This 15.6-inch model has a very good Nvidia GeForce 1060 GPU and is normally $1,099 (and already down to $999). Last year's models, with a GeForce 1050 GPU are also about $100 off.
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 on Black Friday.
You can save $230 on this 15.6-inch two-in-one from HP on Black Friday through Microsoft. Unlike some of the other HP deals on Microsoft's store, this one has a 1,920x1,080-pixel touchscreen for sharper text and images. It has a discrete GPU for a bit more oomph in the graphics department and the screen works with an active stylus for writing and drawing on the display. It's a little lacking in storage, though, so be prepared to add on.
This premium pen-enabled 13.3-inch two-in-one is $400 off its regular price for Black Friday at Best Buy. At less than 3 pounds and with very good battery life, this is a solid bet for frequent travelers or students. This is available now, but on Black Friday, you can get it with an eighth-gen Intel Core i7 processor for just $50 more.
Acer makes good budget-friendly laptops, including this 15.6-inch one at Walmart for Black Friday. With its very good Intel Core i7 CPU, it would make a fine home PC and it's $80 to $100 less than you'll find it elsewhere.
Black Friday 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.
On Black Friday, 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.
This popular monitor delivers a great balance of quality and performance for a low price, and this season it's discounted to an attractive $220 for Black Friday. Don't let the fact that it's coming out of Dell's Small Business marketing team discourage you -- it's a solid consumer option.
At Target for Black Friday you'll find this touchscreen two-in-one that's a perfect fit as a first laptop for kids or anyone else with basic internet needs. For $219 on Black Friday, it has a tough Gorilla Glass 11.6-inch display, a spill-resistant keyboard and up to 10 hours of battery life. Its 360-degree hinge lets you use it in a variety of positions.
One of the nicest general purpose all-in-one desktops we saw this year will be getting a discount to $1,830 starting Nov. 23 for Black Friday, even cheaper than the discounted price from earlier in the month. The highlight is its big 34-inch, 3,440x1,440-resolution curved display.
Microsoft has one of our favorite ultraportables for $500 off its regular prices for Black Friday. 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. 23.
You can now get $200 off Dell's least expensive desktop gaming system, configured with the eight-core AMD Ryzen 1700X, directly from Dell for just $899. I seriously suggest upgrading from the hard disk drive-only to the 256GB SSD plus 1TB HDD option -- the SSD will make a noticeable performance improvement and it only adds $100 to the price.
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 $527. 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.
Best Buy has three configurations of HP's 15.6-inch gaming laptop starting at $750 for Black Friday. This $850 one is the sweet spot, though, with a Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce 1050 Ti GPU, dual storage drives and a 1080p display.
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.
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.
Microsoft is discounting the Surface Pro with bundles. Starting on Nov. 19, save $330 on the convertible laptop with Intel's i5 CPU, 128GB SSD and cover. A few days later, on Nov. 23, a similar bundle with the Surface Pro model that has 256GB SSD will go on sale.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7 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 Black Friday bundle. The bigger screen is better for watching a video, but it's otherwise comparable to the 8-inch model.
