Cyber Monday 2022 falls on November 28 this year, so that's the date to circle on your calendar (or set up an alert on your phone) if you want to find the best Cyber Monday computer deals.

Where will the best Cyber Monday computer deals be?

Some retailers will have better Cyber Monday computer deals than others, with the best deals typically coming from the largest retailers like Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy all having consistently some of the best computer prices online, but that doesn't mean they will always have the best price overall.

Some retailers surprised us last Cyber Monday with incredible computer deals that we honestly weren't expecting, like speciality retailer B&H Photo, which came out with great MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13-inch, and Mac Mini deals on Cyber Monday.

You should definitely check around for different offerings from a variety of retailers, but these are a good baseline for you to keep an eye on for computer deals and then see if anyone else can do better:

How to get the best Cyber Monday computer deal

The key to getting the best Cyber Monday computer deal is to know what you want or need ahead of time, setting a budget, and then only looking for those deals you actually want.

Retailers are going to be throwing a lot of deals out there, and it's easy to get distracted. Keeping your eye on the deals you want and not getting sidetracked by whatever shiny thing Amazon or Best Buy is pushing in the moment will be key to getting the best price.

Tips for buying a computer on Cyber Monday

The key to getting the best Cyber Monday computer deal is going to come down to a couple of factors:

1. Know what you're looking for before Cyber Monday
Retailers are going to be throwing a lot of great deals at you on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but not all of them are going to be the best deals for your need. Knowing what you need ahead of time will help you resist the wrong kinds of deals and score the Cyber Monday computer deal you're really looking for.

2. Look for computers that suit your needs ahead of time
The best way to get the perfect Cyber Monday computer deal is to find out ahead of time the exact computer you want, or at least a few great options that will work for your needs. Then, on Cyber Monday, you can look for deals on those specific computers.

3. Add some wiggle room to your budget when researching computer options
If you set a maximum budget of $800 for your Cyber Monday purchase, look at computers that cost about 25 to 40% more than that. On Cyber Monday, computers that might be out of your price range now are going to see big price cuts and could unexpectedly fall into your budget.

4. Be ready to commit to a purchase, even if it's not the best possible price
Don't let the perfect deal be the enemy of the great bargain. If you see a great deal on the computer you want and its within your budget, don't be afraid to commit and submit your order. Many deals are time-limited and stock this year might be less than anticipated, so there's no guarantee that you're going to get a better price later. If you save a bunch of money on your new computer, you should walk away feeling great about your purchase.

5. Follow TechRadar on Cyber Monday for all the latest deals
We promise we're not being cheeky here. We're going all hands on deck for Black Friday and Cyber Monday to track down the best deals that our computer experts feel are genuinely worth your time and which ones you need to pass on, and we'll scouring all of the retailers and bringing you regular updates on the best deals we find. You can also follow our TechRadar Deals Twitter account for up to the minute deals updates throughout Cyber Monday.
