Whether you're on the hunt for a new iPad or laptop, Amazon Black Friday deals should be high on your radar. In fact, the retailer is one of the main go-to stores for the best Black Friday deals and best Cyber Monday deals of the season. Last year, Amazon blew the competition off the map with excellent Black Friday laptop deals starting at $99. This year, we expect another plethora of Amazon Black Friday deals on Chromebooks, cheap gaming laptops, and laptops under $500.
To predict some of this year's best Amazon Black Friday deals, we're taking a quick peek at some of last year's best sales as well as our favorite Amazon deals in 2019. Plus, check out some Amazon laptop deals you can get right now.
When is Black Friday 2019?
Black Friday 2019 will fall on November 29. That's a week later than last year, which meas the 2019 holiday season will be shorter than usual. As a result, we predict Amazon Black Friday deals will be fast, aggressive, and start earlier than ever.

Amazon Black Friday deal predictions
- Fire HD Tablets: Not surprisingly, Amazon will be your go-to store for deals on its Fire HD tablets. Expect prices to start as low as $29 (for the Fire Tablet 7), whereas other Fire Tablets will get from $40 to $80 off their current prices. Not sure which tablet is right for you, check out our Amazon Fire Tablet showdown to pick the tablet that best suits your needs.
- Laptops: Amazon offers excellent laptop deals year round. However, on Black Friday it goes into overdrive. Expect to see discounts on gaming laptops from MSI and Asus, budget machines from Acer, and discounts on our favorite Chromebooks. In terms of pricing, Chromebooks and Celeron-based machines like the HP Stream will start as low as $99. However, we recommend keeping an eye on machines like the Acer Aspire 5, which is not only a great budget machine, but is already on sale from $349.
- Apple Deals: Along with Best Buy and Walmart, Amazon is one of our favorite retailers for all types of Apple deals. On any given day you can usually find a sale on a MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or any iPad. The 2019 MacBook Air (with True Tone) has dropped to $899.99 so far this year. For Black Friday, look for deals in the $849 range. If you spot its predecessor on sale for less, we recommend buying it. The only difference is that the 2018 MBA lacks a True Tone LCD, so the screen won't adjust itself based on ambient lighting.
- iPads: Amazon is one of our go-to stores for Apple iPad deals. They're constantly matching — and sometimes undercutting — competing retailers like Best Buy and Walmart. In fact, Amazon has offered discounts on essentially every iPad throughout most of 2019. The sales take from $20 to $300 of every iPad in Apple's collection. Naturally, the pricier iPad Pros get the steeper discounts.
- Gaming: In addition to laptops and Mac laptops, Amazon also offered many excellent console deals last year. Various PS4 bundles sold for $199 or less, which at the time were the best prices we had ever seen. While still a good deal, a $199 PS4 bundle won't turn as many heads in 2019, so expect to see discounts on premium consoles like the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro.
