Lenovo Chromebook Duet
The Lenovo Chromebook Duet is a compact little tablet with a detachable keyboard and built-in kickstand. It’s an excellent machine for browsing the internet, streaming video, doing homework, and more.

Believe it or not, but there are actually a few Mac deals this year. Most of these Black Friday deals are on older Intel-powered Macs, but there are a few new machines running Apple’s custom, battery-friendly M1 processor.

- iMac 4K with Intel Core i5 (21.5-inch): $1,000 ($500 off)
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Apple will discount the new MacBook Pro this year. But the MacBook Air and Mac Mini with M1 are more than powerful enough for most professional and creative tasks.

MacBook Air M1
The M1 MacBook Air so power efficient that it doesn’t have any built-in fans. Still, it can run demanding apps, render video, record a band, and fulfill tons of other tasks. And at $950, it’s hard to pass up on this machine.
