The curtain is falling on the biggest sale day of the year, but there remain plenty of golden Black Friday deals for the taking if you know where to look. Big outlets like Best Buy, Walmart, and others are still competing with one another to cut prices on top-rated laptops, and a few are even offering Black Friday guarantees to automatically refund the difference should the price of a certain laptop you bought drop even further before Cyber Monday arrives. From traditional clamshell laptops and portable Windows tablets to 2-in-1 convertibles and even gaming PCs, there’s a bundle of bargains still on the table and we’re going to help you find them.
