This Acer Aspire 3 Slim isn't just the lowest price it's ever been, it's the best Black Friday laptop deal I've seen so far, hands down

When it comes to Windows 11 laptops, this Acer Aspire 3 for just $249.99 at Amazon for Black Friday is the lowest price we've ever seen it, and this might just be the best Black Friday laptop deal we've seen all week.

When it comes to Black Friday deals, some really stand out from the rest in terms of what you're getting for the price. This Acer Aspire 3 deal is 24% off, which isn't the biggest price cut we've ever seen, but with a quad-core AMD Ryzen 3 7320U processor, 8GB LPDDR5 RAM, 128GB NVMe SSD, 15.6-inch full HD display, and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, you're getting some seriously impressive specs for a laptop this cheap.

The laptop comes with Windows 11 S-mode, but with these specs, you can definitely switch over to the full-feature Windows 11 Home OS (the process switching out of Windows 10 S-mode is the same as Windows 11 S-mode) for a much better experience for less than $250.
