It’s rare to see these kinds of deals on Microsoft Surface products, and if you’re a gamer (or shopping for one), that Razer Blade 15 deal is just begging for your attention. Of course, if you’re looking for a powerful PC, maybe you should check out our Windows desktop deals.

The Best Chromebook Deals

Most people don’t need a crazy-powerful Windows PC. In fact, if you don’t play games or run demanding professional apps, you’re probably better off with a Chromebook. These puppies give you a crazy bang for your buck, and even the crazy cheap models run better than most Windows machines.

Here are the best Chromebook deals this Black Friday:

If you’re not sure which Chromebook to buy, I suggest grabbing the excellent Lenovo Chromebook Duet or the Galaxy Chromebook. They hit two different price ranges, but they’re both great machines (especially at these discounted prices).

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.

SAMSUNG Galaxy Chromebook 13.3" UHD AMOLED - HD Intel Core I-5 Processor (256GB Storage, 8GB RAM) - 2020 Model - US Warranty - Fiesta Red - XE930QCA-K01US

Samsung's Galaxy Chromebook is one of the most capable Chrome OS devices, packing a 4K AMOLED touchscreen display, an integrated stylus, a 256GB SSD, and more! It's a killer deal at $600, and man, that red color is just too cool.

The Best Mac and MacBook Deals

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.

Here are the best (and only) Black Friday Mac deals:

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.

2020 Apple Mac Mini with Apple M1 Chip (8GB RAM, 512GB SSD Storage)

Enjoy a snappy, quiet, and powerful desktop experience with the new M1 Mac Mini. It's a steal at today's $780 price.

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.
