Looking for a cheap laptop but don’t want to settle for a Chromebook? If you have to have Windows, then it doesn’t get much cheaper than the Asus E410. This 14-inch laptop is a no-frills work machine with its Intel Celeron N4500 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of eMMC storage, but for basic tasks like emailing, web browsing, watching videos, and typing up documents, it’s more than enough to get the job done. It’s a 14-inch laptop, too, so you’ve got a nice-sized display, keyboard, and touchpad to work with, unlike many cheap 11-inch laptops in this price bracket that are a touch too small for all-day work. It even comes with Windows 11 so you’re set with the latest operating system.

On the other hand, if you can live without Windows, then a Chromebook has many advantages. For starters, the Chrome operating system is largely cloud-based, so you’re relying less on your computer’s hardware to run and store things. That translates to a cheaper cost, and Chromebooks are known for being very affordable. Case in point is the Asus C425, which is one of the best Black Friday Chromebook deals on tap right now. At 14 inches, it’s a great size for productivity (just like the laptop above), and while its Intel Core M3 CPU and 4GB of RAM won’t set the world on fire in terms of performance, the specs are sufficient for general everyday use. The 64GB of eMMC storage gives you some room to keep files locally, even if you’ll be relying more on the cloud for your bigger projects.

HP 15-inch Touchscreen Laptop — $315, was $370

HP has another offer on a no-frills budget laptop. Coming from one of the best laptop brands, this is a solid work machine with good hardware for the price. Its Intel Celeron CPU is paired with 4GB of RAM for efficient performance. You also get a 128GB solid-state drive, which is enough if you’re mostly working on Word documents and saving things to cloud storage. The full-sized keyboard (complete with numeric keypad) is great for all-day productivity. This isn’t a fancy machine, but it’s enough for most basic tasks.

Microsoft Surface Pro 8 with Type Cover Keyboard — $900, was $1,350

The Surface Pro tablets, while excellent touchscreen devices all by themselves, are much more than just Microsoft’s answer to the iPad. When paired with a Type Cover keyboard, these Windows-powered tablets become great 2-in-1 laptops in their own right, and if that’s what you’re looking for, then the Surface Pro 8 does not disappoint. With its gorgeous 13-inch, 2880 x 1920 PixelSense touchscreen, great build quality, and dual Thunderbolt 4 ports, this thing gives the 12.9-inch iPad Pro a run for its money (and for a better price once you factor in that you’re getting a keyboard with the Surface). It sports a full suite of PC hardware, too, including an 11th-gen Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD, all of which combines to deliver great all-day performance. One of our few gripes about the Surface Pro 8 was its retail price, but this discounted Black Friday bundle deal solves that little problem.

Looking for a great gaming laptop and have a grand to spend? This Asus TUF Dash 15 has everything you need for a great price. With its newer 12th-gen Core i7 CPU, boosted 16GB of 4800MHz DDR5 memory, and GeForce RTX 3070 GPU, you’ve got plenty of muscle to power through the latest AAA games at high settings for years to come. Its 15.6-inch 1080p display has narrow bezels for a slimmer overall design and a sleek look, while its 144Hz refresh rate lets you comfortably bump up the frame rate (and adaptive sync technology keeps things running smoothly as well). The attractive backlit keyboard helps you out during those cozy evening gaming sessions, while a 512GB SSD gives you enough space for a good chunk of your game library. For $1,000, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better gaming laptop than this.

Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition Gaming Laptop — $1,100, was $1,700

If you need something with a little more oomph, then you’ll want to check out Asus’ Strix line of gaming laptops. This 15-inch gaming laptop comes strapped with everything you could want from a gaming laptop at a reasonable price. It has an AMD Ryzen 9 5000 Series processor and an AMD Radeon RX 6800M GPU. Together they should be able to handle most AAA games on high settings. It has 16GB of memory, which is usually all you’d need but can be easily upgraded if you’re doing a lot of multitasking. The screen runs at 1440p, so you can crank those graphics up and enjoy a crisp, immersive experience on its 15-inch screen. The refresh rate is an impressive 165Hz, so you’ll get smooth gameplay at high frames per second.
