Labor Day laptop sales are now upon us, so it's time to dive into all those sweet hardware discounts that have sprung up across the internet. There's certainly enough to choose from; many retailers got the ball rolling over the weekend, and the offers keep coming. To give you a head-start, we've been busy rounding up all the top price cuts from Best Buy, Walmart, Dell, and Amazon below.

You'll want to get on these quick. With new releases pushing older models' prices down even further than they have been before, and 2022's components starting to see some of their own discounts, it's all to play for in this year's Labor Day laptop sales. We're already seeing some excellent savings across the digital shelves on everything from budget Chromebooks to premium 2-in-1 convertible behemoths, so there's plenty to get your teeth into as we blast through Labor Day itself (particularly if you're looking to invest in a more premium machine). 

Just don't hang about for too long. Because stores launched their official sales well in advance of the Labor Day laptop sales themselves, hight-ticket items are already selling out. If you spot a price you like, there's no guarantee it will stick around as a result. 

Keep in touch as the day wears on too; we'll be bringing you all the biggest offers as soon as they hit the shelves.
