Black Friday Deals on Laptops Under $500

Laptops are always one of the hottest items to go on sale every Black Friday, with multiple retailers competing to offer the best deal. We've compiled a list of the best deals you'll find, featuring top brands at popular retailers including Best Buy, Office Depot, Dell, and Costco. These made a list either because of the major price cut or the total cost being so low, it's an impossible deal to pass up.

Dell Inspiron 15.6-Inch Windows 10 laptop, $360 at BestBuy

Available at Best Buy, this Dell laptop, which usually sells for more than $500, is a rare opportunity to experience Windows 10 with a powerful Intel Core i5 at such a low price. Featuring a 2 TB hard drive, 8 GB RAM, and a touchscreen, you'll have a difficult time running out of storage space, but no trouble at all when it comes to multitasking. And with a free 6-month Trend Micro Internet Security subscription that works on three devices, you can protect your computer, tablet, and smartphone from viruses, malware, phishing scams, and more, that's one less thing for you to worry about.

Samsung Intel Celeron Braswell 1.6GHz 11" Chromebook, $99 at Best Buy

Best Buy nearly cuts the price in half on this Samsung Chromebook, which matches our prediction for Chromebooks with 2GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD. The limited RAM and hard drive space make this the ideal setup for a light user who only needs a computer to access email and social media. Since you can run from the cloud with Google Drive, you won't have to waste precious hard drive space on office software, but you can still keep your important documents on hand. All you need to get started is a Google account – so it's an excellent choice for children and older adults who don't consider themselves tech-savvy.

Lenovo IdeaPad 320 15.6-inch Windows 10 laptop, $450 at Costco

Available at Costco, this Lenovo IdeaPad generally sells for $600 on Amazon. This model uses the latest, eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, which means improved performance and speed in tasks such as photo editing. While it doesn't have the 2 TB hard drive that the above Dell does, it still has plenty of storage space with 1 TB and bumps up the RAM to 12 GB for even easier multitasking. And as a Costco member, if you purchase this laptop, you'll get a free one-year subscription to McAfee Multi-Access via email.

Dell Inspiron 14 3000 Celeron 2.48GHz 14" Laptop, $129.99 at Dell

Dell will be dropping the price on this bargain machine by $100 for Black Friday. For your $130, you'll get only 2GB of RAM and a 32GB SSD, so this is best suited to users who primarily use their computers to read email and access social media. It's a good starter computer for kids and would make a decent backup computer to use on the go, as long as you don't need to perform resource-intensive tasks.

Best Buy cuts the price in half for this basic laptop. Its specs are nearly the same as the Samsung Chromebook also available at this price, but it has twice the storage space at 32 GB. The limited RAM and storage space make this a better choice for someone who only needs the computer for light usage. It runs Windows 10, whereas the Chromebook has its own OS and runs everything from the cloud. It's perfect for running basic programs, checking email, social media, and casual gaming. When you purchase this computer, you'll get a free six-month subscription for Trend Micro Internet Security that will cover three devices – any combination of computers, tablets, and smartphones.
