The best laptop deals and Black Friday 2017 savings can get you a solid Windows 10 laptop for a very reasonable price. One deal gets you a 2017 Surface Pro with 128GB of storage and a Type Cover for just $699.
Without the best laptop deals, you can expect to pay around $600 or more for a solid Windows 10 laptop that has plenty of processing power and a long-lasting battery. Expect to pay around $799 for a Windows 10 laptop that has excellent battery life, a touchscreen and the latest Intel processors.
You don’t need a warehouse club membership to take advantage of these deals. PC makers and retailers routinely cut the PC prices throughout the year. That being said, you should take advantage of these deals as soon as you can. Really great deals won’t last long and a few will require you to have your credit or debit card waiting the moment a sale starts.
Best Laptop Deals
All the best laptop deals pack huge savings, but there are some things to keep in mind as you consider which of them to take advantage of.
As with every technology purchase you make, take your needs into consideration when choosing which laptop to buy. All Windows 10 laptops aren’t created equally. The more money you spend, the more processing power and storage you will have. On the other hand, don’t always go with the more expensive options if you don’t need to. You do not need to spend a lot of money if you only want to browse the internet and check email.
Second, look for any deals that include extras you know you need to get the most out of your new PC. Some Surface Pro bundles and the ThinkPad X1 Tablet include a keyboard cover, which you really must buy for the best experience. There are software extras worth considering too, for example, Surface Laptops and low-cost Windows 10 PCs often come with a free year of Microsoft’s Office 365 Personal service. That subscription costs $69.99 on its own.

Trading Your Old PC to Boost Your Savings
Look to device trade-ins to boost your savings. Amazon and Best Buy will both give you store credit in exchange for your old laptop. You can use that store credit towards anything you want, including their best laptop deals.
How much store credit you get through these trade-in programs depends on how old your PC is and how well you’ve taken care of it. Best Buy and Amazon will both power on the device to make sure it’s in working before they issue you any credit. Remember to back up your files and reset Windows 10 to factory settings before getting rid of your old laptop.
eBay and Craigslist Laptop Deals
eBay is the safest of these two places to buy a used laptop. First, you can learn a lot about the new device through the pictures and information each seller provides. Also, the site lets you ask questions and compare hundreds of auctions for the best deal. Just be sure you have an idea of what PC you’d like to buy before you start looking there. Also, read all the information the seller provides about the PC’s condition.
You don’t need to wait for someone to ship you your new device if you buy through Craigslist. That’s why so many people love the site. Also, you get to haggle directly with the person selling the device for the best deal possible. Unfortunately, there are no buyer protections on Craigslist. Test out the laptop in a public place before you commit to buying it.
