Best holiday laptop deals

There's still time to get some online shopping done.

The holidays are a great time for laptop deals, but with only weeks left in the season time is running out. Not coincidentally, today is "Green Monday"—a term coined by eBay for the last Monday that's at least 10 days before Christmas. (Otherwise known as the day when you still have a good amount of time to receive shipped packages.)

On this greenest of Green Mondays, we've pulled together the top laptop deals available: These options range from a fancy gaming laptop to an ultra-budget conscious clamshell and points in between. We'll be updating this article from time to time as deals change, so check back every so often to see what else we've found. Just be warned that if you wait too long, you may miss your opportunity to get anything in time for the holidays!

(If you're having trouble figuring out which laptop to get, our Holiday Laptop Buyer's Guide can help. It walks you through the different specs and what to expect from each pricing tier.)

The best laptop deals

HP: HP Envy x360

Price: $700
Savings: $170 (MSRP)

HP has a nice deal on the HP Envy x360 convertible laptop on its website. For $700, you get the base model with the quad-core, 1.6GHz Core i5-8250U, 8GB of RAM, and a one terabyte hard drive.

The centerpiece of this clamshell is its 1080p screen with touch capabilities, which allows the user to take advantage of Windows 10's inking capabilities.

Amazon: 14-inch Razer Blade

Price: $1,600
Savings: $200

A lightning deal from Amazon, this laptop is $200 cheaper than it was just over a week ago. The laptop features a 14-inch 1080p IPS display, a 2.8GHz Core i7-7700HQ processor, 16GB of RAM, 256GB PCIe SSD, and a GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. This laptop is ready for virtual reality and is fairly thin for a gaming laptop at 0.7 of an inch thick. It also weighs 4.3 pounds, which makes it more portable than many gaming laptops.

HP: HP Laptop 14t

Price: $190
Savings: $110 (MSRP)

To counter Google's Chromebooks, Microsoft has been encouraging its partners to create ultra-cheap Windows 10 notebooks with low-powered processors and minimal onboard storage. These systems can manage basic everyday tasks as long as they have enough RAM.

HP's Green Monday sale has one such laptop available that features a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Celeron processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB eMMC storage. It also comes an SD card slot to expand the device's storage, two USB 3.1 ports, one USB 2.0, HDMI, and one VGA.

Though it's not a workhorse, this model should adequately handle web browsing and document editing—and unlike a Chromebook, it can support a wider number of applications.

Staples: Dell I3567-3964BLK

Price: $380
Savings: $140 (MSRP)

Staples has a daily deal available on a capable Dell laptop for $380. This device includes a 15.6-inch display with 1366-by-768 resolution, a dual-core 2.4GHz Intel Core i3-7100U, 8GB RAM, and a 2TB hard drive.

There's also a DVD drive, 3-in-1 card reader, Bluetooth 4.0, 2 USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0, HDMI out, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. It's just under an inch thick and weighs close to five pounds.

Lenovo 14-inch touch screen laptop

Price: $330
Savings: $70 (MSRP)

Best Buy's got a 2-in-1 Lenovo touchscreen laptop for $330 right now. The 14-inch display offers 1366-by-768 resolution. Admittedly this deal would be better with a 1080p screen, but a sub-$400 price helps counter that shortcoming.

There's also a dual-core, 2.3GHz Intel Pentium 4415U processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. It's 0.8 of an inch thick and weighs 3.75 pounds. It's got one USB-C port, one USB 3.0, HDMI out, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and media card reader.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
