Best Amazon Cyber Monday 2022 laptop deals: Save on Apple MacBooks, Samsung Galaxy Books, and more

UPDATE: Nov. 16, 2022, 11:40 a.m. EST This story has been updated with Amazon’s latest and greatest laptop deals ahead of Black Friday 2022. Here’s a quick overview:


Amazon can’t compete with Walmart on the extremely cheap (sub-$100) Chromebook front, but it’s still one of the absolute best places to find a laptop deal this holiday season.

Despite the fact that its 48-hour Black Friday sale doesn’t technically begin until next week, the retail giant is already rolling out all-time-high discounts on higher-end Samsung Galaxy Books and Apple MacBooks (including Pro and Air configurations from earlier this year) well ahead of Cyber Monday. Shoppers in search of a basic Chromebook for kids or school can find plenty of options in the $100 to $300 range, including a couple of ASUS machines that come with free Office 265 or Microsoft 365 subscriptions.

Gaming laptop deals from brands like MSI and Razer haven’t hit their stride on Amazon just yet, but we’ll be keeping a close eye out for their inevitable appearances.

A press release hinted that select laptops from HP and Dell will see discounts of up to 40% over the course of Amazon’s main event from Thursday, Nov. 24 through Friday, Nov. 25, so if you’re after those two brands in particular, chill ’til then. Otherwise, we’d recommend taking advantage of the offers we’re seeing already.

One important thing to keep in mind as you peruse Amazon’s listings is that it loves to mess with laptops’ MSRPs (by either inflating or deflating them), often obscuring whether deals are actually good or not. Take this Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2(opens in a new tab), for example: It looks like a good deal at $699, which Amazon says is 13% off a $799.99 MSRP. Cross-check that price on Samsung’s website(opens in a new tab), however, and you’ll see an original retail of $699 β€” it’s not actually on sale on Amazon after all.

If that all sounds like a lot of work, fret not: We’re going through all of Amazon’s early Black Friday laptop deals and picking out everything that’s actually worth buying based on true MSRPs and historical data from camelcamelcamel, a price-tracking site we rely on for fact checking these kinds of things. Check out the running list of contenders below. (Note: Laptops that have hit a record-low price have been marked with a πŸ”₯.)
