4th of July laptop sales are beginning to wind down, but that doesn't mean you can't take advantage of some killer savings. Hundreds of dollars have been hacked off everything from budget to premium builds, and that means you can pick up quality kit for less. No matter whether you want a new device for work and play, a gaming rig, or something to meet the back-to-school rush, you'll find something to suit you below.

Just make sure you're quick; the 4th of July laptop deals are mostly wrapping up and we've already seen some of the most impressive offers run off the shelves. As such, there's no guarantee the reduction you're looking at will stick around for much longer. If you want to avoid disappointment, we'd jump in sooner rather than later. 

Speaking of which, let's crack on with the offers. We've stumbled across laptop deals as cheap as $79 (opens in new tab) (that's thanks to a $60 discount on the 11.6-inch Lenovo Chromebook at Best Buy), but you'll find discounts spanning the full price range right now. Mid-range highlights include this $299.99 (opens in new tab) Asus L510 taking its first discounts from $329.99 at Amazon - and offering an incredible 256GB SSD. However, you'll also find more powerful rigs taking big discounts in this weekend's 4th of July laptop sales - the Dell XPS 13 is $200 off at Dell right now, landing at $849.99 (was $1,049.99) (opens in new tab)

Should you wait for Monday's 4th of July laptop sales?

If you've found a laptop deal you like you may be concerned about taking the leap before Monday's official 4th of July laptop deals have landed. While we may see additional products added to sales lines on the big day itself, however, we typically see the vast majority of discounts come and go the weekend before major sales holidays such as this. That means we'd recommend jumping on any prices that work for you ahead of time - there's no guarantee they will still be on sale or in stock once the crowds descend on the 4th. 

When will 4th of July laptop sales officially begin?

Technically, 4th of July laptop deals are supposed to land on the date itself. However, we've already seen plenty of retailers launching their sales early - some as early as last week. That means it's all to play for already. 


Missed out on these offers? We're also getting you prepped for the upcoming Prime Day laptop deals and Prime Day gaming laptop deals - all landing on July 12, so you've got another shot at a discount this month. Or, for something a little more permanent, take a look at everything we expect to see from Prime Day PC deals
