Apple iPad Mini 4 for $274

Apple still sells its pocket-size iPad for a hefty $399, making this already live $279 deal from Best Buy especially notable.

3 of 35 Best Buy

Samsung Chromebook for $99

It's pretty bare-bones, but this 11-inch Samsung Chromebook is an early Black Friday steal at just $99 from Best Buy.

Samsung Chromebook Plus for $350 or Pro for $450

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 Notebook 9 Pro

Samsung Notebook 9 Pro for $900 (15-inch) or $750 (13.3-inch)

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.

Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar for $1,899

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.

7 of 35 Staples

HP Pavilion 15 (Core i7) for $499

This is a solid Black Friday deal on a mainstream 15-inch HP Pavilion from Staples. With a Core i7 CPU and big 1TB hard drive, it's usually around $800. This deal starts on Thanksgiving Day. 

Lenovo Flex 5 1570
8 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

Lenovo Flex 5 2-in-1 for $579

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.

9 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop for $899

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. 

10 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

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 on Black Friday.

15.6-inch HP Pavilion x360 2-in-1 for $599

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. 

HP Spectre 2017
12 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

HP Spectre x360 (13-AC063DX) for $950

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 Aspire E15 (E5-575-72N3) for $449

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.

PowerSpec 1510 gaming laptop for $1,250

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.

15 of 35

Asus 11.6- or 13.3-inch Chromebooks for $170

Newegg's Black Friday deals feature two Asus Chromebooks, the C201 and C300, each for $170. They're both essentially the same, except for the screen size.

Microsoft Surface Laptop
16 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

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

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.

17 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

Dell UltraSharp 24 (U2417H) for $220

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.

HP Chromebook x360 (11-ae027nr) for $219

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.

19 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

HP Envy Curved AIO (34-b025xt) for $1,830

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. 

20 of 35 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 Black Friday (it's available in stores and online from Nov. 24 to Nov. 27). That's $250 off of what was already a good deal.

21 of 35 Josh Miller/CNET

Huawei MediaPad M3 for $220

Newegg and Amazon has this 8.4-inch tablet for Black Friday that's made for media consumption with a sweet 2,560x1,600-pixel IPS display and speakers tuned and certified by Harman Kardon.

Asus 15.6-inch VR-ready gaming laptop for $979

Newegg has some good deals on gaming PCs like this 15.6-inch Asus FX502VM-AS73 laptop with a seventh-gen Core i7-7700HQ, 16GB of memory, a 1TB hard drive plus 128GB SSD and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU for less than $1,000. 

23 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

Dell XPS 13 for $799

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. 

24 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

Dell Inspiron Gaming Desktop for $899

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.

25 of 35 Lori Grunin/CNET

Samsung 49-inch CHG90 for $1,199

If you were planning to buy this humungous 49-inch curved, Freesync 2-compatible monitor, now's the time. It's available for the manufacturer price of $1,499 everywhere, but starting on Nov. 23, Samsung will be offering it for $1,199

26 of 35 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 $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.

27 of 35

HP Omen 15 (15-CE019DX) for $850

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.

28 of 35 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. 

29 of 35 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. 

30 of 35

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.

31 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

Microsoft Surface Pro bundles on the cheap

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.

32 of 35

Samsung Galaxy Tab A Series

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.

HP Stream 14 for $199.99

Staples has the 14-inch HP Stream for Black Friday. If you like the price of Chromebooks, but want the Windows 10 operating system instead of Google's Chrome OS, then the Stream has you covered.

34 of 35 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.

Razer Blade Stealth (13-inch, 2017)
35 of 35 Sarah Tew/CNET

Razer Blade Stealth up to $350 off

Razer is discounting a trio of gaming laptops in a variety of sizes. 

The 13-inch Razer Blade Stealth is discounted $350, down to $1,249 for a model with a 4K UHD screen.

The 14-inch Razer Blade is down $200, starting at $1,749. 

The 17-inch Blade Pro is on sale for $1,999, $300 less than its original $2,299.99 starting price.

The deals are live on Razerzone.com and will be available via Amazon, Best Buy, Microsoft, and select other retailers on 11/23. They're good through Cyber Monday.
