Black Friday is less than a week away, but the early deals we're seeing are pretty phenomenal.

If you want a great deal on a great Chromebook, look no further: we've trawled through all the major retailers and collated our pick of the very best discounts available in the early sales.

Chromebooks are an awesome choice for anyone who wants a cheap laptop - they're lightweight, affordable, and use the flexible Google Chrome operating system to provide a user experience that should prove welcoming and straightforward for even the most tech-averse buyer.

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go, for example, is now just $230 at Amazon. This ultra-thin Chrome-powered laptop is perfect for anyone with a Samsung phone or tablet thanks to the Galaxy Ecosystem, which makes transferring files and apps a breeze.

If you fancy something with a bit more processing power, there's the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i - reduced by over a hundred bucks to a very reasonable price of $300.

If you're shopping from the UK, you might want to check out the Asus Chromebook Flip C433, a powerful 2-in-1 laptop reduced by more than a third to £330, or the sleek detachable Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3, now just £250.

There are plenty of other early Black Friday Chromebook deals out there, so read on for our top picks. If you're not from the US or the UK, our nifty deals widget at the bottom of this article will find the best deals for your region!
