Is Black Friday a good time to buy a laptop?
Yes, but laptop offerings could be lower in general this year. Joanna Nelius, electronic editor of Reviewed, pointed out that there is currently a continuing shortage of computer chips in high demand around the world, which is impacting the supply and prices of various laptops.
Nonetheless, Nelius said that Apple, Dell, HP, Samsung and others have made laptop deals every year. Nelius suggested that PC gamers, in particular, should keep an eye out for Cyber Monday (the Monday, November 29) for the best savings on gaming laptops, while those just looking for a new computer may find better deals on Chromebooks during Black Friday (the November 26) and Cyber Monday.
What are the best laptops to buy?
It depends on what you are looking for. While the Macbook Air was our top pick for the best overall laptop, we also rated laptops from HP and ASUS as top of the line. We can recommend a variety of Chromebooks as well, with our pick of the top picks from Lenovo, Acer, and Google.
If you are on a budget, the Lenovo Flex5 Chromebook is down to $ 329.30 right now. We’re fans of its exceptional build quality, which rivals that of laptops twice the price, and fast performance. Its battery life may be average, but it’s still great value for the money.
If you have a student to buy who is also a Windows fan, the HP Specter x360 Laptop PC for $ 819.99 is a great gift this holiday season. As one of the our favorite laptops for students, the Specter impressed us with its nine-hour battery life and large screen. While not as fast as the latest Macbooks, the Specter still delivers fast performance for office work, light video editing, and even gaming.
