If your laptop is due for an upgrade, this week and weekend are the perfect time to shop around for the best Black Friday laptop sales. It’s definitely the way to go if you’re not particularly motivated to get the top-of-the-line model from your favorite gadget brand.

Before you click add to cart, though, do your due diligence. Figure out what features and tech specs you need—super low prices usually mean an older processor or less memory, so make sure you’ll love what you get.


Also, make sure that you’re clicking on a brand new machine and not just a refurbished model (unless that doesn’t matter to you). Finally, it pays to read customer reviews. At the end of the day, laptops are a pricey investment, so learn from other people’s experiences and narrow down your choices.

To save you a bit of time and effort, we’ve scoured a few of the more notable online stores frequented by laptop buyers and picked some options for you to consider.
