Best Buy's early Black Friday laptop deals are offering some excellent savings right now, with a price guarantee that ensures you won't be disappointed by any further discounts. However, most of these offers will end tonight, so you'll have to be quick to beat the crowds. 

My Best Buy members can shop these early Black Friday laptop deals in full confidence that they won't be sniped by a lower price on the big day itself. The retailer is promising to refund the difference if prices do drop even further over the sales period. Plus, membership is completely free so this offer is well worth taking advantage of, especially considering Black Friday seems to start earlier and earlier each year. 

Not only is the price guaranteed, but the sales themselves are offering excellent value - well deserving of that Black Friday laptop deals label. The star of the show is this HP Chromebook for just $99 (was $259) offering excellent value for under $100. Or, if you're looking for a Windows machine, the 11-inch HP Pavilion x360 is available for a fantastic $279.99 (was $449.99)

That's a little dinky for working from home or getting through more significant tasks, which is why we'd recommend also checking out a 15.6-inch HP laptop. Both the i3 and i5 versions are currently seeing some Black Friday level discounts, with 8GB RAM / 256GB SSD configurations seeing uncharacteristically low prices. You'll find the former available for just $329 (was $499.99) and the latter for $399.99 (was $599.99).

We're rounding up all the best early Black Friday laptop deals Best Buy has unleashed just below. However, we'd also recommend checking out everything we expect to see from this year's Black Friday gaming laptop deals as well.
