The best Black Friday laptop deals of 2021 are expected to offer the best discounts of the year. Black Friday is your ticket to saving big on your next MacBook, Chromebook or Windows notebook PC. 

If you're looking to score the best laptop deal this season, you've come to the right place. We're rounding up the top Black Friday laptops deals happening at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and more below. 

Black Friday is the one of the best times of the year to buy a laptop outside of back-to-school season. 

For example, Apple's pricey MacBooks usually see steep discounts of $250 or more for Black Friday. Earlier this year, we saw the base model MacBook Air fall to just $749 in a Best Buy student deal. While chances are slim that the MacBook Air will return this record low price, it could drop to at least $799 on Amazon for Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

And if you're looking for a modestly priced laptop under $200, there will be plenty of Chromebook deals to consider. It's an affordable pickup if you want a basic laptop to create docs, check email, browse the internet, and stream content on. 

In fact, several retailers are already offering Black Friday-worthy deals on Chromebooks at the moment. 

When is Black Friday 2021? 

Black Friday 2021 falls on Friday, November 26 this year. Technically, Black Friday is a one-day shopping event, however, awesome discounts can be had weeks before and the days after on Cyber Monday. 

While the big shopping weekend is still weeks from now, early Black Friday-like deals are beginning to surface. Currently, Amazon's Epic Daily Deals offers discounts for holiday shoppers who want to get an early start. 

Black Friday 2021 is expected to offer tons of fantastic deals on today’s top mobile tech. Be sure to bookmark our Black Friday 2021 deals hub for the best retail holiday discounts. 

In the meantime, here are the best Black Friday-worthy laptop deals available right now.
