Even business laptops are getting Black Friday discounts: Lenovo, HP, Dell, and more

It might be the holiday season right now but that doesn’t mean that Black Friday discounts are exclusively for personal items. Right now, even business laptops are getting in on the great Black Friday deals we’re seeing pop up left, right, and center. With plenty of great Black Friday laptop deals out there, it can get a little overwhelming so we’ve narrowed things down to four of the best business laptops out there including one high-end MacBook Pro.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme — $1,620, was $2,940

With a massive $1,320 off the usual price, there has never been a better time to snap up this Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme. The deal gets even better when you consider that we ranked it the best business laptop out there right now. For your money, you get pretty much the best experience possible. The laptop is lightweight, immensely powerful and yet still offers over 14 hours of battery life. That’s impressive going for a laptop that offers a 9th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, 512GB of SSD storage, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q graphics card, and a 15.6-inch full HD anti-glare screen. Yup, it’ll even play games thanks to that great graphics card although, ultimately, we think the ThinkPad X1 Extreme’s strengths lie with how much it’ll help you get work done faster and more efficiently. If you’re in the market for a high-end laptop, this is the device for you.

Dell Latitude 7400 Laptop — $750, was $2,185


With a frankly ridiculous saving of $1,435, if you were keeping an eye on the Dell Latitude 7400 series, this is the time to buy one. We only reviewed the Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1, but it has a very similar build and we’re big fans. Dell refers to the Dell Latitude 7400 as the world’s smallest 14-inch premium business-class notebook for good reason. It has an 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, 256GB of SSD storage, and a 14-inch full HD screen. So far, so standard, right? Where things get better is the introduction of features like ExpressConnect which promises to automatically join the strongest Wi-Fi connection every time. Also, you can regain an 80% charge in just one hour, which is useful if you’ve got a busy life going on. It’s also incredibly sleek looking and ensures that your laptop looks as professional as you. With a big price saving right now, it’s a good time to buy. There are also plenty of other Dell business laptops out there in the Black Friday sales.

HP Elite Dragonfly — $1,410, was $2,560

With a saving of $1,150, this is the right time to buy an HP Elite Dragonfly. It’s a gorgeously sleek business laptop — in our HP Elite Dragonfly review, we stated was the perfect size for traveling and offered incredible battery life. The system offers an Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of memory, and 256GB of SSD storage as standard. While that might not sound particularly high-specced, the HP Elite Dragonfly makes up for it with great features like Sure View Reflect which is HP’s latest privacy screen, ideal for working privately on a plane, for instance. It also has built-in Tile support so you can easily track where it’s gone if the laptop is mislaid. Everything about it is designed with business travel in mind. There are numerous other HP business laptops also in the Black Friday sale.

Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch — $2,150, was $2,400

If you’re keen to go the Mac route instead of a PC then this Apple MacBook Pro 16-inch is the laptop for you. With a $250 price cut, it’s a sleek and stylish device that’s also powerful. It has a 9th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, 512GB of SSD storage, and an AMD Radeon Pro 5300M graphics card that’s ideal for video or photo editing. Alongside that is a Retina display screen with True Tone technology. Mac displays are considered gorgeous for a reason and that’s certainly the case here. Your security needs are also covered with Touch ID support ensuring no one can get in without your fingerprint. It’s a powerhouse of a MacBook Pro but it still offers up to 11 hours of battery life. If you’re looking for other Black Friday MacBook deals, we’ve got even more for you to check out.
