HP Chromebook 11a:
$229.99 $129.99 at HP
Save $100 – The HP Labor Day sale drops this Chromebook down to the cheapest we've seen it. At just $129.99 it's one of the lowest prices you can expect to pay for a laptop of this type. With 4GB RAM and 32GB of storage it's a capable machine if you need a device for school or basic tasks at home.
Lenovo C340 11-inch 2-in-1 Chromebook:
$309.99 $199 at Walmart
Save $110 – Not many 2-in-1 laptops can be had for under $200 so this Lenovo C340 is a terrific deal if you like having the option to switch to tablet mode. Specs are about as you'd expect in this price range – with an 11-inch screen, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage – so this will serve well enough for work or light tasks.
HP 14-inch Chromebook x360:
$359.99 $289.99 at Amazon
Save $70 – For those after a 2-in-1 with a slightly larger screen then this HP Chromebook x360 is back down to its lowest ever price right now at Amazon. With a 14-inch touchscreen, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage it's a solid all-around performer for basic work, web browsing and streaming at a budget price.
Dell Inspiron 15 3000 laptop:
$529.99 $399.99 at Dell
Save $130 – This Dell Inspiron offers excellent value for money if you need an all-purpose laptop for everyday tasks or work. It includes an Intel i3 processor and a 128GB SSD – about expected at this price point. What seals it, though, is the 8GB RAM. That'll give a welcome performance boost when we usually only see 4GB at this price.
HP Laptop 15t:
$599.99 $449.99 at HP
Save $150 - HP always makes great value mid-range laptops, case in point - this HP 15T. With an 11th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD you'll be hard-pressed to find a more powerful machine in the sub-$500 range right now. The processor and boosted RAM are particularly good here if you need something that's going to handle multi-tasking applications or a lot of browser tabs running at once.
Dell G15 Gaming Laptop:
$1179.99 $799.99 at Dell
Save $380 – Dell's headline Labor Day deal is this G15 Gaming Laptop for $799.99. At nearly $400 off, it's a great discount for a rig with an Intel i7 processor, 512GB SSD and RTX 3050 graphics card. 16GB RAM would have been preferred, but the 8GB will do for an on-the-go device that'll handle most games in 1080p.
Asus TUF 17.3-inch gaming laptop:
$999.99 $849.99 at Best Buy
Save $150 – There's a decent $150 saving on this entry-level gaming laptop from Asus. It includes one of the latest Nvidia RTX 3050Ti graphics cards which is great to find at this price – especially with a larger 17.3-inch screen. Storage is a little on the small side but if you only need a handful of games installed at once then this is ideal.
HP Pavilion desktop gaming PC:
$699.99 $649.99 at Best Buy
Save $50 – For an entry-level gaming PC you'll find a decent saving on this HP Pavilion at Best Buy. The spec is definitely on the lower end at this budget price, but you'll get a desktop that's capable of running low demand games such as Fortnite perfectly well. It also includes Game Pass, which is essentially Microsoft's version of Netflix for games.
ABS Gladiator Gaming PC:
$2099.99 $1799.99 at Newegg
Save $300 – Here's a great saving on a mid-to-high-end gaming PC at Newegg. With the i5 processor, 3070Ti graphics card and 16GB RAM you'll have a rig that's more than capable of running the latest games on high settings. A great find for under $2000. Plus, it also includes a free copy of the upcoming FPS Battlefield 2042, Crysis Remastered Trilogy and Humankind.
ABS Legend Gaming PC:
$4499.99 $3899.99 at Newegg
Save $600 – If you really want to step up the power of your gaming PC then this ABS Legend is the lowest price it's been in a month. Some might consider it a little excessive but you are getting a top Ryzen processor, a 3080Ti graphics card and 32GB RAM. With 2TB SSD storage you'll have enough room for a healthy game library at this price, including the free copy of Battlefield 2042 that comes with the PC.
Those are the very best Labor Day computer deals we've come across so far. Of course, we'll continue to update this for the rest of the day as more sales go live across the web.
