There’s a new Applein town, and this sees big discounts on some of its closest counterparts including the ever-popular and the recently updated 13-inch . But this is where the deals are only just beginning. For those who know where to look, special offers on big name brands including Samsung, HP, and Dell have landed early on laptops, gaming machines and Chromebooks.
We’ve noted is that there’s not currently much on offer when it comes to low-end Intel or AMD processors. However, these are laptops that tend to disappoint at any price, making them cheap, but not a bargain.
We’ll keep updating this Black Friday article with new deals as they come to hand.
Best Black Friday 2019 laptop deals available now
Here’s a stealthy deal you don’t want to miss on the new MacBook Air. At Amazon, it’s $899, which is already well down from Apple’s list price of $1,099. But, if you choose “no rush shipping,” you can knock another $100 off, which is pretty amazing.
Another decent option: Get $200 off a new MacBook Air right now with this Best Buy deal. Best Buy is also offering $100 off the brand-new 16-inch MacBook Pro now as well (if you’re a member of the My Best Buy program, which is free to join).
The new 13- inch MacBook Pro that was released in July is now down to $1,100 at both Best Buy and Amazon.
This is the 13.3-inch version of the larger 15.6-inch Notebook 7 Spin model we reviewed (and liked). This convertible two-in-one laptop has a touchscreen that can rotate 360-degrees into tablet mode. It features a standard midrange component lineup with an Intel Core i5 CPU and 8GB of memory, but goes beyond the standard 256GB SSD you see on many midrange models and doubles the storage capacity to 512GB.
This two-in-one laptop from Dell is a bit bigger and more powerful than the Samsung mentioned above. It provides a 15.6-inch touchscreen powered by an Intel Core i7 CPU and 8GB of RAM while serving up a 512GB SSD.
The LG Gram 14 two-in-one laptop lives up to its pedigree, delivering awesome battery life and strong performance at a lighter weight than the competition. This 14-inch model features an Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.

This is a decent budget gaming laptop, model number 15-dk0068wm, with a Core i5 CPU and Nvidia GTX GeForce 1050. We thought this deal wouldn’t be available until Wednesday, but it went up early.
Two slightly different configs of this small Chromebook from Samsung, which is a step-up form of the cheapest 11-inch models. Best Buy’s model is on sale now. Find it at Walmart for more money for more memory, too.
Nicely upgraded budget-friendly gaming laptop, with a Core i7 CPU and GTX 1650 graphics.
Big-screen Chromebook with an Intel Core i3 and a touchscreen. Popular deal, as it’s already temporarily sold out, but will hopefully be back in stock soon.
The 13-inch Spectre x360 is one of CNET Reviews’ favorite 2-in-1 convertibles for its premium styling, light weight and long battery life. This model features a 13.3-inch touch display, an 10th-gen Intel Core i7-1065G7 CPU, 8GB of memory, integrated Intel graphics and a 512GB SSD with 32GB of Optane memory.
