Best Cyber Monday laptop deals 2019: MacBooks, Dell XPS, and More

The best Cyber Monday deals are coming to an end, and the best deals are ending at midnight. Although the line between the two is growing increasingly blurry, Cyber Monday still stands apart from its sister sale, Black Friday, in a couple of important ways. Not the least of these is that it is more or less entirely online, whereas historically Black Friday usually has you go to a store to get your iPad discounts and 4K TV deals.

Secondly, Cyber Monday is quickly becoming a longer affair, with many stores running “Cyber Week” sales that extend beyond Monday. This is great news for holiday shoppers as Black Friday offerings tend to dry up quickly due to scarcity, with Cyber Monday and Cyber Week offering more chances for deal-hunters to save on MacBooks.

Best Cyber Monday Laptop Deals still available

Just as with Black Friday, pretty much all the usual suspects are offering Cyber Monday and Cyber Week deals. Since these sales are online-only, however, this is a time for internet retailers like Amazon to strut their stuff. We’ve already combed through the offerings from Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, and others in order to bring you the best up-to-date list of Cyber Monday laptop deals that are available right now.

How to choose a laptop on Cyber Monday

Choosing a laptop can be hard. The hottest laptops in 2019 have been 2-in-1 ultrabooks like the Dell XPS and Microsoft Surface lineup, gaming laptops from brands like Alienware and Lenovo, and of course, the iconic MacBooks, which are always in demand among die-hard Apple heads. And given that these laptop categories tend to feature cutting-edge designs sporting the latest hardware, they’re also generally the most expensive, thus making them an ideal target for Black Friday and Cyber Monday shoppers. We expect to see the deepest price cuts on these premium 2-in-1s, Mac computers, and gaming laptops, so if there’s a particularly big-ticket item among these that you’ve been eyeballing, there’s no better time of the year to jump on it.

All of that doesn’t necessarily mean you should ignore deals on the more affordable stuff. Holiday sales are also a fine opportunity to find budget-friendly workhorse laptops for even cheaper, and if you’re not picky about having the latest and greatest, then retailers often use events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday to clear out their inventories of last-gen stuff and items that aren’t as hot (or as pricey) as something like a MacBook or high-end gaming PC. This includes not only cheap Windows laptops but also things like Chromebooks that tend to fly under the radar. Whether you’re hunting for a premium laptop or something cheaper, though, bear in mind that these deals are almost always limited and rarely last for the duration of the entire sale; if you see something you’ve been really wanting and it’s at a discount, then Cyber Monday might be your last chance to grab it before Christmas.
