When will the Cyber Monday laptop days start?

Cyber Monday is happening this year on November 29, though the laptop deals are likely to take place as early as the Saturday after Black Friday, and are possible to extend out into the latter half of the week after the sales event. Certain retailers, such as Dell, tend to run Cyber Monday laptop deals mere minutes after Black Friday has wrapped up. 

Where will the best Cyber Monday laptop deals be?

In all honesty, the best Cyber Monday laptop deals are likely to be fairly evenly spread through the biggest online retailers first and foremost. This means keeping a watchful eye on not only Amazon and Dell, but also on the big-box stores, such as Walmart and Best Buy, too, as the latter has been catching up in prior years to what's been offered from the purely online outlets for a while now. 


Amazon: Consistently low prices and deals on all major brands
Dell: Deep discounts on Inspiron and XPS laptops

Cyber Monday laptop deals: What to expect

It isn't uncommon for some of the biggest names, such as Apple and HP, to drop the prices on their respective flagship models down to their historic lowest-ever prices. In 2020, we saw Adorama selling the MacBook Air M1 2020 for $899 - reduced from $999 - for a full hundred bucks off the asking price. 

Similarly, Dell tends to offer some of its best rates of the year on the Inspiron and XPS range, as we saw last year an XPS 13 laptop rocking an i7 processor reduced down to $749.99 from its usual listing price of $1,150 - for a massive saving of $400 off, so it's definitely one of the bigger sites to be watching on the day if you're after a high-end ultrabook or something a little more modest.

Cyber Monday laptop deals: how to choose what's right for you

Chromebooks and budget laptops: if all you're after is something cheap and cheerful to browse the web, watch content from streaming services on, and get some work done, then a Chromebook (or equivalent Windows PC) is likely to be the perfect choice for you. Generally, these laptops range anywhere from $200-$500 depending on the resolution of the screen and the prowess of the processors. Curious about what makes Chromebooks special? They run on Google OS and feature free browser-based alternatives to programs like Microsoft Office Suite, called G Suite. 

Ultrabooks: these laptops are built with sleekness and productivity in mind. What's more, they're often constructed out of high-end aluminium with stellar screens, long battery lives, and cross-functionality with certain smartphones, and sometimes even touchscreens. Because of these inclusions, prices can range anywhere from $600-$1600 (or more) depending on what it can do, especially if its a 2-in-1 with a touchscreen and high-end specs to boot. 

Gaming laptops: these machines are built primarily with playing video games (shocker) in mind. This is done by an increase in RAM, normally a minimum of 8GB but averaging 16GB with higher-end models, and a dedicated graphics card either made by AMD Radeon or Nvidia GeForce GTX/RTX. Prices can range massively depending on the power prowess available, anywhere from $700 to $3,000+.
