  • When is Black Friday 2021?

    Black Friday always comes the day after the American holiday Thanksgiving, which is always the fourth Thursday of November. That makes 2021’s shopping bonanza fall on November 26: a date to know if you’re looking forward to laptop Black Friday deals.

    Although most tech specialist and non-specialist stores begin sales in the days leading up to Black Friday, they also often continue into the weekend and ‘Cyber Monday’.

    When is Cyber Monday 2021?

    The online-only cousin of Black Friday lands on November 29 this year, with loads more deals and offers from retailers. If you miss out on a Black Friday deal, Cyber Monday is a great chance to grab more savings.

    Is Black Friday a good time to buy a laptop?

    Yes, it is arguably the best time of the year to buy a laptop. There will almost certainly be huge deals to be found on laptops, with discounts from numerous retailers. 

    Cyber Monday will also see a great variety of deals, but don’t underestimate the Black Friday sales, as some shops could be offering as much as 30% off. We will bring you all the details of this year’s sales as soon as they’re confirmed, so keep checking back!

    More Black Friday Laptop and Tablet Deals

    Take a look at some of the other Black Friday deals weve found around the web:

    • Tablet Black Friday deals
    • Chromebook Black Friday deals
    • Black Friday Monitor deals
    • Black Friday iPad deals
    Will Apple Macbooks be in the Black Friday 2021 sales?

    Apple does not have a Black Friday sale the way that most retailers do, but the company’s Macbooks are usually discounted on other retailers’ websites. Apple also regularly offers gift cards during the Black Friday weekend, so if you are thinking about getting some accessories with your Macbook, this could be a perfect time to get one.

    What to expect from laptop retailers in the Black Friday 2021 sales

    Shopping for a laptop this Black Friday? It’s worth checking in on all the big and well-known retailers as deals go live. Whatever you need a laptop for, top brands are available for less during the event, including the likes of Dell, HP, Asus, and Lenovo.

    Sought-after models like Microsoft’s Surface devices and Apple’s Macbooks can also be found for less – as can gaming laptops from the likes of Alienware and Asus TUF and ROG models. Familiar retailers like Currys or Target tend to offer competitive discounts. But don’t forget specialists like Dell, Laptops Direct and Ebuyer.

    What sort of laptop do I need?

    Laptops largely fall into four categories: standard laptops, Macbooks made by Apple, Chromebooks, and 2-in-1s which are laptop/tablet hybrids.

    Standard laptops have a huge range of specs and prices to choose from, ranging from a couple of hundred pounds to many thousands. The cheaper models are good for web browsing and streaming programmes online, while the more expensive variety have more processing power and can be used to edit video and power demanding video games.

    Macbooks run Apple’s intuitive MacOS and generally are very easy to use while looking sleek, but the design comes at a price and the most popular models cost between £1,000-£1,500.

    Chromebooks are generally cheaper, less powerful machines that rely on cloud computing to complete tasks so require a good internet connection to use the majority of their applications.

    2-in-1s are for those who want to switch between a tablet and a laptop and are the most versatile type of laptop with prices that can range from a few hundred to well into the thousands.

    If you’re the sort of person who likes to watch Netflix and fire off a few emails, Chromebooks and cheap laptops are probably enough for you. But if you want to play games that require some big computing power such as Football Manager or The Witcher, or you want to edit photos and videos, a more expensive laptop or Macbook might be the way to go.

    What specs should I go for?

    Faster processors, more memory and larger storage might seem better, but getting the best value depends on whether you will use it.

    For occasional to daily use, the following specs should handle most tasks: Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5 processor, 8GB RAM, with 256GB SSD. Combined with a 14-inch display on something like an Honor Magicbook, you will have a capable laptop for general tasks, with a good amount of speed and storage. A good price for such specs would be £500 or under, but that can depend on the brand too.

    If you need something more powerful, or with more storage – more of a workhorse – opt for 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD and a 15.6-inch display. For these specs, £800 or so isn’t an unreasonable price, but be sure to compare across retailers and similar models as prices can go beyond £1,000 for top models.

    For more processing power, you may want to consider an Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 7 processor. More powerful processors can do more at once and handle more complex tasks, but they will increase the price of a laptop substantially – especially with the latest processors.

    iRobot Roomba Cyber Monday Deal: Save Up to $400 on Robot Vacuums

    Amazon

    If a new Roomba is on your shortlist this Cyber Monday, don’t miss the deals below. The best early Cyber Monday savings on your favorite iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaners have arrived, whether you’re looking for the latest self-emptying vacuums or generous savings on more basic models.

    Considering the ongoing shipping delays that are looming over the 2021 holiday season, we recommend jumping on these deals while you can. As with previous Cyber Mondays, the deals are only as good as long as supplies last.

    Find the Best Cyber Monday 2021 Robot Vacuum Deals Here.

    Shop Cyber Monday Home Deals

    Save $300 Off iRobot Roomba s9+ (9550) Robot Vacuum & Braava Jet m6 (6112) Robot Mop Bundle (Now $1,299)

    Buy The iRobot Roomba s9+ & Braava Jet m6 Bundle

    Save $300 off the iRobot Roomba s9+ (9550) Robot Vacuum & Braava Jet m6 (6112) Robot Mop Bundle with one of this year’s best Cyber Monday bundle deals. This is an incredible opportunity to save big on an iRobot bundle that will get your home sparkling clean.

    Combined with the powerful Braava Jet m6 robot mop, this dynamic duo suctions up even the smallest debris then washes your floor surfaces to make them shine. Both devices have WiFi connectivity and smart mapping. All you need to do is give voice commands or use the accompanying app to start cleaning and mopping.

    No matter the mess, this duo can handle it. The self-emptying bin stores up to 60 days’ worth of debris and neatly seals dust and dirt inside a bag to purify your air and reduce exposure to common allergens. Equipped with 30% wider rubber brushes, pet hair won’t get tangled as the vacuum cleans. Both iRobots carefully map out your home and clean accordingly, avoiding obstacles and Keep Out Zones for maximum effectiveness.

    Save $200 Off iRobot Roomba s9+ (9550) with Automatic Dirt Disposal (Now $1,099)

    Buy The iRobot Roomba s9+ (9550)

    Save $200 off the luxe s9+ while supplies last. It’s a great deal considering all that this Roomba has to offer.

    The top-rated s9+ is the premier Roomba, with high-end features and performance. For example, it’s the only Roomba with 40x suction power on carpets, for even deeper cleaning. All the rest have 10x. Also, it has unique technology for more effective corner cleaning. Where other robot vacuums might sweep over hidden debris, the s9+ suctions it up to make your home cleaner.

    Even though it comes with more bells and whistles than most robot vacuums, what makes the s9+ really stand out is its self-emptying bin. It holds up to 60 days’ worth of debris, so you don’t have to empty the bin after every run around your home.

    Each s9+ comes with AllergenLock Dirt Bags that seal in allergens so that you don’t breathe them in when it’s time to empty the contents. Unfortunately, the bags aren’t reusable.

    Save $200 Off iRobot Roomba j7+ (7550) Self-Emptying Robot Vacuum (Now $649)

    Amazon

    Buy The iRobot Roomba j7+ (7550)

    Save big on the newly-released iRobot Roomba j7+ self-emptying robot vacuum. It’s currently discounted by $200, which drops it to the lowest price we’ve seen so far this year, according to CamelCamelCamel.

    Part of the all-new j Series, which features improved technology to better navigate around your home and understand its limitations, the j7+ offers smarter and more efficient cleaning over previous generations. For example, it navigates around cords, so you don’t have to prep your living space before each cleaning session. You can set up Keep Out Zones to confine your Roomba to certain areas.

    Pet owners will be especially thrilled with its ability to avoid pet waste. If your furry friend has an accident when you’re away, you no longer need to worry about the vacuum smearing the mess all over your floors.

    As with the s9+, the j7+ also has a self-emptying bin that holds up to 60 days’ worth of debris. However, the j7+ has a much shorter base that fits in even more spaces.

    Don’t need an emptying base? You can save money with the iRobot Roomba j7 (7150) Robot Vacuum. It’s currently on sale for $449, which is $200 off the listed price. This huge Cyber Monday iRobot deal drops the price tag down to the lowest so far this year, according to CamelCamelCamel.

    Save $95 Off iRobot Roomba 694 (Now $179)

    Buy The iRobot Roomba 694

    Looking for a great deal on one of the most affordable Roombas? You’ll save just under $100 off with this Cyber Monday deal. That drops the price of the Roomba 694 down to $179. It’s the lowest price this year, according to CamelCamelCamel.

    The Roomba 694 is a stripped-down iRobot. It’s a great deal if you don’t need all the bells and whistles. You get a lot of bang for your buck with Roomba, which features WiFi connectivity and a powerful 3-stage cleaning system. It uses adaptive navigation to avoid obstacles around your home, so you can confidently schedule cleanings while you’re away.

    This Roomba is WiFi-enabled and can be controlled with the app or your voice. You just need a compatible Alexa device to start cleaning using voice commands. The Roomba 600 Series gets to know your cleaning habits and even suggests extra cleanings during peak allergy season or if your dog is shedding more than usual.
