Black Friday 2011 Laptop Deals Compared

This post may contain an affiliate link. Click for the full disclosure.

Here is a compilation of all the Black Friday laptop deals we pulled from the ads. They are listed by price from low to high. Definitely check the Amazon links – for reviews, and in some cases you can get them cheaper through Amazon than you can on Black Friday!

Many of the laptops don’t show up in Amazon searches – not sure if they’re custom models specially ordered for Black Friday or what. In those cases, I’ve linked to the closest model I could find for comparison (or none at all).

If you don’t know what to look for when buying a laptop, be SURE to read this post:

Buying a new computer? Get the most bang for your buck!

Debating between a laptop, desktop and tablet? I’ve tackled that one too:

What should you buy? Tablet vs Laptop vs Desktop.

REMEMBER: You get what you pay for. A $180 laptop may be easy on your wallet, but it’s also going to be pretty slow. My recommendation is to aim for the best processor you can afford – a Core i3, i5 or i7 if possible. You can add more RAM for pretty cheap at any time, but upgrading a processor is much more difficult and typically costs more.

    Thanks again

  2. You’re very welcome!

  3. Thank you so much for doing this for laptops! We will be buying one and this is an amazing help! You guys are awesome!!! God bless!

    Hello! I hope you guys are enjoying your first snow. We are in our 9th year and I must admit, it is getting old, and cold (oh, look, I am a poet). Anyway, I need your help; I read several articles that said there would be a Best Buy Coupon code for black Friday. I have been all over the Black Friday at Best Buy facebook page, their store site, and the normal Best Buy facebook page and cannot find anything. Retailmenot didn’t offer one either, so I am starting to think that there may not be a code…Do you know anything about a coupon, or facebook special offer for Best Buy?

  5. Yasmir Nieves-Mitchell via Facebook says:

    I still don’t know if I should buy one :( but thank you again. I like to referral to this post every time I think of buying one, but money is tight right now so I might keep using my husband for a while.

  6. Lisa Smith Martin via Facebook says:

    It wouldn’t be worth buying the 2 low priced ones. 1. they are using AMD processors which tend to run hotter which means a short life for the mainboard, and once the main board goes it’s cheaper to buy a whole new computer. 2. 2 GB of memory will run windows 7 but it will be slow 3. On board video will share the memory making it even slower. So $100 more you will be must happier. My hubby has had several clients call and ask him about the Friday laptops. He’s told them all that the
    Best Buy: 15.6″ Samsung (NP-RV510-A05US), Intel Pentium Processor, 4 GB Ram, 320 GB HD – $299.99 Is the best deal.

  7. Valerie Biggs via Facebook says:

    Good to know Lisa. Mine took a poo and I’m not sure I want to spend 900 bucks on a fancy one…but also don’t want to get ripped off :)

  8. Valerie Biggs – The $299 option isn’t the BEST deal out there, just the cheapest computer he was recommending. You need to decide what your budget is and go from there. For $500 you’ll get a lot more computer than for $300. My best piece of advice – if you can afford it, get a Core i3, i5 or i7 processor. 4 GB of Ram is a good minimum, and typically you can upgrade that later on for somewhat cheap. – Mr Frugal

    Thanks guys! I’m so lost and when you ask the best buy kid he says “let’s go over here” LOL
