During the Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales, there are always some deals on products that are on sale as a way to clear out inventory. That’s okay. But that also makes it harder to find the proper Cyber Monday deals where you can save money on new and good products.
But after going over Cyber Monday laptop deals from all the main brands, I’ve narrowed it down to 4 laptops that are actually both cheap, given a proper discount for Cyber Monday, and that has some useful power and speed too. And to back it up and add a little science to it, I’ve included the Geekbench 4 benchmark scores for these Cyber Monday Windows 10 laptop deals as well, with a higher score indicating higher performance.
As it turns out, you can actually get Surface Laptop 3 performance for just $299 on Cyber Monday!
|Windows 10 laptop||Single-core||Multi-core|
|$299 for 15.6-inch HP laptop.
10th gen. Intel Core i3-1005G1 processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM (2666 MHz), 128GB SSD storage, and HD screen.
|$299 for 15.6-inch Lenovo IdeaPad S340.
8th gen. Intel Core i3-8145U processor, 4GB DDR4 RAM (2400 MHz), 128GB SSD storage, HD screen, and Windows S.
|$399 for 15.6-inch HP laptop with AMD Ryzen 7.
AMD Ryzen 7 3700U processor, 12GB DDR4 RAM (2400 MHz), 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD storage, HD touchscreen, and Windows 10.
|$459 for 15.6-inch HP laptop with 10th gen. Intel Core i7.
10th gen. Intel Core i7-1065G7 processor, 12GB DDR4 SDRAM (2666 MHz), 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD storage, optional touchscreen, and Windows 10.
So just to put these prices into perspective, even laptops from Chinese brands with 1/3 of the power costs more even when they are on sale for Cyber Monday.
