Gaming laptops are usually expensive, but thanks to this offer, you can get an incredible machine for hundreds of dollars.

For a limited time, the Asus TUF Dash 15.6-inch gaming laptop is available at Best Buy for $999. That’s $500 off the regular retail price of $1,499 and the lowest price we’ve found for this configuration. Best Buy previously took off $250 in late October, but the retailer has now taken off another $250, making this one of the best Best Buy Black Friday deals available right now.

A price drop of this magnitude on a gaming laptop with such desirable specs is pretty rare. This device is equipped with a 12th generation Intel Core i7-12650H processor, 16 GB RAM and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card. That’s enough for the business best pc games at high settings.

The 512GB SSD might not be enough to store many blockbuster games at once, but you can fix that small drawback with one of the best external hard drives.

This is a pretty attractive discount on a very good gaming laptop, so we don’t expect it to last for too long. Be sure to take a look before it might be sold out.

This is a really great deal for those looking for a 2-in-1 laptop.

Right now, Best Buy is selling the HP Envy x360 15.6-inch 2-in-1 laptop for $649. That’s $300 off the regular price of $949.

This HP Envy x360 notebook has a large 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) touchscreen display. Such a huge screen is great for watching streaming content on YouTube and Netflix. The display is also big enough for multiple windows if you want to be more productive. Similarly, the touchscreen functionality should help you get more work done.

In terms of specs, you’ll find an Intel Evo 12th Gen Intel Core i5-1235U CPU, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. It also has an integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics GPU. These specs aren’t exactly overwhelming, but they’re sufficient for standard computing tasks like word processing and web browsing – not to mention watching TV shows and movies.

Although this particular machine isn’t quite on par with The best 2-in-1 laptopsit’s an overall solid device, especially at such a reduced price point.

Right now, Walmart is selling an HP Chromebook for $79. This laptop typically retails for $98, which means you save nearly $20.

Being a Chromebook, it’s far from a powerhouse laptop. However, it’s still a capable machine. It packs an 11.3-inch HD display, AMD A4 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. As you would expect from a Chromebook, it’s powered by the reliable and easy-to-navigate Chrome OS.

On a normal laptop, 32 GB of storage space would not be enough. However, on a Chromebook it is sufficient since you mainly use Google online services such as Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, etc. It also means that to get the most out of it, you’ll want to use this Chromebook (or any other) Chromebook somewhere with a reliable internet connection.

Given its modest specs, this HP Chromebook isn’t for those looking to run processor-heavy tasks like video editing. And it’s certainly not an ideal choice if you want to play the best PC games. However, if you’re looking for a device that’s good for basic everyday tasks and schoolwork, this Chromebook is an extremely affordable option.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 9 came out a few weeks ago. For that reason, we’re not surprised that the previous iteration received a heavy discount in the days leading up to Black Friday.

Right now, you can pick up the Surface Pro 8 from Best Buy for just $899. That’s a fantastic $450 discount and the lowest price we’ve seen for this device. Even better, a keyboard is included, so you don’t have to pay extra for this accessory.

In our Surface Pro 8 in reviewwe praised the brilliant 13-inch touch display and the sharp webcam. And while the 11th Gen CPU isn’t the fastest at this point, you’ve got plenty of power for multitasking.

Overall, this is a killer deal for the Surface Pro 8 and we’d snap it up before it sells out.


MacBook Pro 14 offer

This is one of the biggest (no pun intended) laptop deals we’ve seen yet. You can get the MacBook Pro 14 inch for a whopping $400 off Amazon!

So what’s so good about this system? The M1 Pro chip in this device delivers incredibly fast performance, whether you’re juggling dozens of tabs, editing photos, or transcoding large video files. You can also jump in for the M1 Max chip if you want even more oomph. The standard configuration comes with 16 GB of unified memory and a 512 GB SSD.

Another big highlight is the 14-inch mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR display. It’s bright (around 500 nits in our tests), colorful, and almost edge-to-edge except for the notch at the top where the 1080p webcam sits. This is a great panel for watching videos or creating or editing content.

We also like the battery life that the MacBook Pro 14-inch offers. We saw an excellent 14 hours and 9 minutes of endurance in the Tom’s Guide battery test, which includes continuous web browsing at 150 nits of screen brightness. And you can recharge with the handy MagSafe magnetic charger.

Overall, this is a surprisingly good deal for the 14-inch MacBook Pro. We would act quickly before it sells out.

Hello everybody! Computing Writer, Tony Polanco, here to bring you some of the best early Black Friday deals we could find. Without further ado, let’s dive into some of the hottest deals available right now.

Right now, the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop is only $899 at Best Buy. That’s a fantastic $500 discount off the usual price of $1,399 for this 14-inch gaming laptop that offers great performance and battery life in a stylish, ultra-portable chassis.

In our Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review we called it one of the The best gaming laptops You can buy it because it has enough power to run most games well, yet lasts long enough on battery and looks good enough on a desk to carry to school or the office.

Another thing we love about this laptop is its battery life. In our tests, the Zephyrus G14 lasted 11 hours and 32 minutes surfing the web, which is remarkable for a gaming laptop. Granted, you’ll get far less than that playing (in the order of a few hours, at most), but still, it’s a rare feat for the category.
