Black Friday 2022 MacBook deals

Apple doesn’t necessarily advertise big discounts for Black Friday, but third-party retailers do — and this year is no different. We’re seeing a number of deals on MacBooks for Black Friday 2022.

There are a few things to consider when buying a MacBook. Notably, you’ll want to think about whether you want a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro is more powerful than the Air, but it’s also much more expensive, and not as portable. The MacBook Air is the laptop most people should get.

Here are the best Black Friday MacBook deals for 2022.

When will Black Friday laptop deals start this year?

Black Friday 2022 is here — and the deals have started!

It can be tricky to figure out the perfect time to buy. If you’ve had your eye on a specific laptop, you’re likely going to be following it and its price for months (which means you’ve already done so). How do you know if you should grab it or wait to see if it drops even more? It’s really a waiting game and whether or not you feel comfortable getting it at a certain price.

How to get the best Black Friday laptop deals?

Getting the best laptop deals is all about pouncing when the time is right. You’ll notice some deals, especially at places like Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, Target, and then the manufacturers themselves. Some of them have already started, like Walmart and Best Buy. Target‘s holiday deals began over Halloween weekend. Amazon has started its options too, with the Early Black Friday Deals portion of its site. You can expect deals from Acer, Lenovo Chromebooks, and more.

You’re going to want to find something that comes with all the features that you want. The amount of memory, the video card, and the space that you require are musts. Figuring out the specs for your computer should be a top priority. Also, you definitely will need to decide whether a laptop or desktop makes the most sense for you.

Once you have all of that figured out, you’ll be able to shop more easily. Before the sales start is the time to narrow down what kind of laptop you may want. That way, when you see the laptop for you, you can snag it before it runs out of stock.

Black Friday vs. Cyber Monday deals

Cyber Monday falls on November 28, 2022. It used to be called Cyber Monday because you could only get the deals online. But now, with more people shopping online than ever before, you’re going to find a lot of great deals on both days, online and otherwise. Now that we’re only a few days away, it’s time to take it seriously and keep an eye out for the deals.

Which is the better one for buying a laptop is really up to where you want to buy it from. The manufacturers are likely to be tossing out major electronic deals on Cyber Monday that may be better than Black Friday. For example, HP always has a massive Cyber Monday on laptops after having a big sale on Black Friday. But there are certain laptops they only put on sale on Cyber Monday.
