Cyber Monday is over and most of these deals have expired, but we’ve rounded up the best deals still available here.

Whether you’re shopping for a student, an older relative, or anyone in between, a laptop can make a great gift. And the internet’s largest retailers are offering all kinds of laptops at discounted prices for Cyber Monday, whether you’re looking for a convertible, a Chromebook, a gaming rig, or anything else.

Note that for some models, only certain configurations may be on sale. Make sure to double-check the specs of the item you’re buying to make sure they’ll suit your workload (and that you’re actually getting the discount) before you check out.

To learn more about some of these laptops, and others that may see discounts later this week, check out our guide to the best laptops of 2020.

HP deals

A number of HP laptops are on sale through Best Buy’s online store. One of them is the HP Envy x360 13 2-in-1, a portable convertible laptop that offers exceptional value for its price. We reviewed an AMD configuration, and were quite impressed with the keyboard and build quality.

At B&H you can buy the base model MacBook Air with the M1 chip for just $899, that is $100 off its normal retail price.

Multiple configurations of Apple’s latest MacBook Pro are on sale at B&H Photo. The new Pro is powered by Apple’s M1 processor, which delivers astonishingly powerful performance and can also run iPhone and iPad apps natively on macOS. If you’d prefer to go for an older Intel model, some of those are on sale as well.

Razer laptop deals

You can save up to $300 off of a few Razer gaming laptops, including the Blade Stealth 13 and the Blade 15.

Razer Blade 15

  • $1,350
  • $1,800
  • 26% off

The Blade 15 is Razer’s base gaming laptop, but it still comes with top-tier options and can handle almost any AAA game you can throw at it. It can be configured with up to an RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU and 4K OLED display, but we think the model with the RTX 2060 GPU and 144Hz 1080p display is the best option.

Razer Blade 15 Advanced

  • $1,800
  • $2,600
  • 31% off

Razer Blade Pro

  • $2,300
  • $2,600
  • 12% off

The Blade Pro is Razer’s top of the line gaming notebook, with a 17-inch display and loads of power. It can be configured all the way up to an RTX 2080 Super Max-Q GPU and either a 120Hz 4K OLED touchscreen or a 300Hz 1080p display.
