While the actual Black Friday sales event takes place on November 24, we're guaranteed to see a ton of great deals land before the actual day itself. There was once a time when we'd urge caution and patience - but with how early retailers kick off their sales now, it's smart to keep your eye out as we approach Black Friday in the next two weeks in case you see a great deal pop up. Remember: once they're gone, they're gone.

Where can I find the best Black Friday Chromebook deals?

What Black Friday Chromebook deals do we expect in 2023?

Chances are that this Black Friday will deliver some major discounts on all sorts of laptops - and of course, that includes Chromebooks. In the midst of an economic downturn, people have been shrinking their budgets when it comes to tech. Fortunately, that means retailers have plenty of stock they want to shift, so we should see some great deals this year.

That's not all, either. The recent announcement of new Chromebook Plus models hitting stores soon will no doubt lead to shrinking price tags among existing Chromebooks - and having seen the initial Plus lineup, we feel comfortable saying that you don't need to spring for one of those more premium machines if all you want is a simple laptop for work or school.

As for exactly which brands we expect to see discounted, well... it's all of them, really! All the big names like HP, Asus, Acer, Lenovo, and Samsung are expected to have Chromebook deals running up to, during, and just after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so you'll be spoilt for choice.
