What are the Best Laptop Deals? Look Online.

Many of us are in the market for a new laptop from time to time. Usually by the time we buy our next one, we can expect a new and improved version. Often, too, we can find better prices than before, as one thing is certain, and that is the continual increasing competition.

Competition between stores is a great benefit to the consumer, as we find ourselves in the midst of pricing wars. That means we can get the best deals on the computers that we want. The same is true with online computer stores. Here is a compilation of some of the best online deals I have found. These stores are always having some kind of sale, offering online discounts to save shoppers even more.

Deals on Dell computers

Dell is a well-known, established, and dependable company. They have been around a long time and have a solid reputation. Dell is the only brand we used in my former workplace, and the computers had virtually no issues. We purchased both desktops and laptops for our various needs. Dell always has online deals going on, with significant savings, sometimes up to $200 off the retail price.

Deals on Apple Computers

If you would rather have a Mac or perhaps the smaller iPad, you just might find one for less than you will find in a physical store at the online Apple Store. Look for deals such as $100 off the coveted Mac. Don’t want to pay full price? AppleStore also offers discounts on refurbished Mac computers. While you’re there, you may as well check out discounts, too, on their apps and software.

Save on the Lenovo ThinkPad

Lenovo will save you at least 10% on your laptop purchase and maybe even up to 40% when they have employee pricing going on. What a deal!

You might want to consider looking at their Lenovo ThinkPad, starting at under $500.This sleek, lightweight laptop comes in black, red, or blue. It has advanced audio, a built-in camera, and longer battery life. It looks sharp, too!

Save on Hewlett Packard computers

HP, a well-known computer company, also has a clearance center. You can save hundreds of dollars on the computer of your choice. The HP Pavilion starts at under $400!

What is The Source computer outlet?

The Clearance Outlet at TheSource is definitely worth looking at. With all sorts of brands, they even have Toshibas starting in the $300 range. Toshiba is one of the top brands around. It’s the label on my current laptop, and I am very pleased with it!

Future Shop laptop deals

If you want a great selection and a guarantee of the lowest pricearound, check out FutureShop. They guarantee to beat any price you find online or in a physical store by 10%. Guaranteed. Choose from brands like Sony, Samsung, HP, and Apple. Feel free to shop around for better prices first. Then come back to FutureShop to claim your 10% off that lowest price. That's a deal that is hard to beat!

Save on electronics at Wal-Mart!

Speaking of lowest prices, let’s not forget Wal-Mart’s claim to fame of guaranteed lowest prices. Wal-Mart does have some cheap online prices on Acer, Toshiba, Gateway, and HP laptops. Some start on the low end of $300. While Wal-Mart may not have the large online selection that some of the other stores do, they are definitely worth checking into because of their everyday low prices. With online discounts, these low prices become even lower.

Use online coupons for laptop computers

Shopping online can save you even more when looking for your next laptop. CouponSnapshot offers deals on all of the sites listed. Use these online Dell coupons and other computer discount coupons to shop and compare deals as you look to purchase the laptop that meets your needs.

      Minnetonka--I wouldn't like that either! I like dependability for sure. Glad you liked the hub!

      Hi Victoria~I use an ASUS computer. I got it when there was a good sale going on at Best Buy-the salesman was very knowledgeable too. I have had to bring it in twice in two years which I'm not happy about. I appreciate your informative hub-thanks for following me too :-)

      Thanks, rcrumple, for coming back to answer my question. Finding something mobile is something I really need to do right now. My trusty Toshiba laptop is much too bulky and heavy to leave the house. Thanks so much!

      Actually, the notebook is about half the size of the laptop. I use it exclusively for a second laptop when flying. The small size allows it to fit perfectly when using on a back of seat tray, even if the seat in front reclines a little. They're about $300-$400 for a decent one, and do make sure all office products needed are added. I found myself stuck only with notepad for a short period of time. Good luck!

      Yes, rcrumple, I'm still here. I've been very busy and haven't been writing a lot, but I've written about 8 hubs this month. I know those notifications can get off sometimes. I know I haven't been visiting you and other people enough, but we do our best, huh? At any rate, good to see you.

      Glad to hear that you were pleased with the Toshiba since I have one. Is your HP notebook a smaller kind of laptop? I am looking into getting something small and more portable for when I have to be away but still want to check on things. Thanks so much for the input! See you soon!

      I have received no notices of your hubs in over 3 weeks. I thought you'd quit writing! Good to see that's not the case!

      Great hub! I have both a Toshiba laptop and an HP notebook that I use upon occasion, but still utilize my 8 year old Dell desktop as my primary for hub usage and such. Over the years, I also had two Compaqs, another HP, and a Sony in the laptop area. Out of all of them, the Toshiba is the fav. Very informative hub! Up & Useful & Interesting

      KD--I've heard some pretty good reviews about Acers, and they're pretty cheap. Thanks for the comments, KD!

      I use an Acer right now and it's alright. I'm just using it for college.

      Thanks for your great information, once again, Victoria!

      Carol, sounds like you got a good computer. I do hope so. Do you use the iPad a lot, too? I was wondering how useful those are. Thanks for sharing this!

      You did the research..too late, we just bought a new Dell from the two year warranty.. And the problems people have had with computers this makes me feel a bit secure. I still like PC..though we have an Ipad. Thanks for sharing and researching all this great always!!!! Vote Up and sharing with Facebook and Twitter.

      FSlovenec--I have done the same thing--buying something at Best Buy because the person I talked to knew so much about the product and was so helpful. I thought later that I probably could have gotten it cheaper somewhere else, though. Oh, well. Sometimes customer service makes a huge difference. Thanks for reading and commenting!

      Good information we just bought computers for the office. After months of research we ended up at Best Buy, the price may not have been the best but the sales person was knowledgeable, he was able to answer our questions after taking time to understand our needs. This was unusual so we bought.
