TCL’s excellent 4 Series 50-inch 4K smart TV is on sale for $90 off this Black Friday, and in exchange, you get a solid television with great picture quality, HDR support, a voice remote, and more. Plus, you can pick between Roku or Google TV.
For $170 off, you can get Insignia’s 65-inch F30 Series 4K Fire TV which is by far one of the best deals this Black Friday. The 65-inch TV runs on Amazon’s Fire TV OS and packs Alexa support, DTS Studio Sound, Apple AirPlay compatibility, HDR, HDMI ARC and eARC, and more. Plus, Best Buy throws in a free Echo Dot (3rd-generation).

It can be controlled with your voice via Alexa and integrates all the streaming services you can think of.

You can save $500 on the 55-inch model which gets you a 4K QLED panel, Quantum HDR, Samsung’s Tizen software experience, and more. Since it’s part of the Frame series, you’ll also get Art Mode (which turns your TV into an art exhibit), a matte finish, and a customizable bezel to match your home’s decor.
This deal is definitely one of the best on my list. You can save $900 on Sony’s 55-inch Bravia XR A80J Series 4K OLED television, which delivers excellent picture quality thanks to the OLED panel, Sony’s XR 4K upscaling, advanced color support, and powerful processor. It comes with Google TV for one of the best smart TV experiences, and there’s also Acoustic Surface Audio+, 120fps support for gaming, and and a three-way multi-position stand for improved flexibility.

Black Friday deals at Best Buy: Laptops and tablets
My favorite MacBook, the 14-inch 2021 MacBook Pro, is on sale this Black Friday for $400 off. You get 16GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and Apple’s astonishing M1 Pro processor. You also get a beautiful 14-inch mini-LED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, a top-notch keyboard and trackpad, excellent battery life, and some of the best speakers ever on a laptop. This is a great pick-up for anyone who wants one of the best computing experiences money can buy.
For fans of larger laptops, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is $500 off with an M1 Pro processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage. It’s the same laptop as the 14-inch model but with a larger 16-inch display, slightly longer battery life, and even better speakers. Again, it’s a great pick-up, especially during Black Friday with these prices.
Apple’s redesigned MacBook Air with M2 processor is down $150 for Black Friday. It’s by far the best MacBook Air Apple’s ever released with a much more powerful processor, an almost-bezel-free 13.6-inch display, improved keyboard, better speakers, and higher-quality FaceTime camera. This model gets you 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage which is enough for most people, but you can always spec it out and still save cash.
If you’re looking for a new MacBook and want to save even more money, Best Buy is taking $200 off the original M1-powered MacBook Air from 2020. This is still a speedy little machine by today’s standards, even though it doesn’t have the most modern design or specifications. The 13.3-inch display is perfectly suitable, battery life is still great, and there are a handful of colors to pick from. This model comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
Best Buy is shaving off $100 from the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4’s price. Now starting at $799, the latest Surface Laptop comes with a 13.5-inch touchscreen, an AMD Ryzen 5 Surface Edition processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of RAM. It’s powered by Windows 11 and ships with a fancy Alcantara-covered keyboard deck.
The last-gen Surface Pro 8 is on sale for $450 off. For the price, you get a beautiful 13-inch 120Hz display, an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and Windows 11. Plus, a keyboard comes in the box, which makes this a very appealing deal for anyone who needs to get a Windows user in their life something new to carry around.
Samsung’s high-end Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360 is on sale for $500 off, which is quite the deal considering you get a spacious 15.6-inch AMOLED display (great for inky blacks and vibrant colors), a 12th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and 1TB of SSD storage. The screen can flip around 360 degrees as its name implies, and since it’s a touchscreen, you can use the included stylus to doodle or sign documents.
Another great 2-in-1 Windows 11 laptop is the HP Pavilion x360 which is on sale for $330 off and brings the price below $500. For the money, you get a nice 14-inch touchscreen that can flip around 360 degrees, an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage. It also comes with Amazon Alexa built in for hands-free operation. Altogether, it’s a solid pick if you’re shopping for a Windows laptop on a budget.
If you’re shopping for a new Chromebook, I highly recommend checking out the IdeaPad Duet 5 from Lenovo. On sale for $130 off, it comes with a 13.3-inch Full HD OLED display, a Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, solid battery life, and a keyboard in the box. It’s an incredible value at its normal price of $499, let alone $369.
The 9th-generation iPad, also known as the “default iPad” for a lot of people, is on sale for $60 off. The 10.2-inch iPad sticks with the same thick-bezel design as older models, as well as a Home button with Touch ID. Still, it’s a solid tablet for anyone who just wants an iPad to toss around.
The redesigned iPad mini, complete with an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display and A15 chip, is on sale for $100 off during Black Friday at Best Buy. It’s by far one of the best compact tablets you can get thanks to its incredible performance, good screen quality, thin bezels, and USB-C connectivity.
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8 is on sale for $150 off this Black Friday. It’s a great choice if you want an Android tablet that’s still powerful enough to handle a workload (if you plan to actually do work on it, of course). It sports an 11-inch 2560×1600 display, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and Android 12. There’s also a fingerprint reader, an 8,000mAh battery, and an S Pen in the box.
Amazon’s own Fire HD 10 tablet is on sale at Best Buy for $75 off, making it one of the best tablets you can buy for under $100. It comes with Fire OS layered on Android for a very Amazon-heavy experience, a 10.1-inch Full HD display, good speakers, a quad-core processor, and 12-hour battery life. It also supports a majority of the biggest streaming platforms around, so you can enjoy all of your favorite shows and movies (along with whatever Amazon serves you).

The previous-generation Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones are also on sale at Best Buy, this time for $121.99 off.

The Beats Studio Buds are some of the best no-brainer wireless earbuds you can buy.

Apple’s second-generation Apple Watch SE is on sale for $20 off.

Apple made a splash this year with the introduction of the Apple Watch Ultra, its first watch geared toward extreme sports and conditions. It’s on sale at Best Buy for $60 off its normal price which is a decent savings and gives you a little breathing room if you want to pick up an extra band.
