Black Friday keeps coming earlier and earlier, with some stores opening on Thanksgiving night. Other retailers announced special deals in early November, and simply called them Black Friday deals. Whatever the timing, there are some great discounts this year if you’re looking for a new laptop. We scoped out all the flyers and doorbusters to narrow our selections. From big savings on the new MacBook Pro to super low prices for the HP Split x2 hybrid, here are our favorite laptop deals for Black Friday 2013.
Apple's latest MacBook Pro with Retina Display is the most powerful iteration of its flagship laptop yet. This robust 13-incher provides smoother performance than ever with a 4th-generation Intel processor, faster flash memory and Iris graphics. Plus, we saw more than 9.5 hours of battery life in our tests. Factor in the free iLife and iWork app suites, and this notebook is more than worth the premium. Fortunately, you won't have to pay a premium on Black Friday weekend, as Best Buy is offering the new MacBook Pro for $200 off its retail price at $1,099. This special doorbuster kicks off Thursday night at 6 p.m. at Best Buy retail locations and will be available online from Nov. 28 to Nov. 30, so make sure to line up early if you want a shot at getting one.
