Newegg releases 2017 Black Friday ad with laptop, desktop PC, tablet deals

Newegg’s Black Friday deals include a pair of £169.99 Asus Chromebooks. Longtime online tech retailer is the latest to announce its Black Friday deals, though it’s getting an early jump by putting the specials listed in its ad[1] on sale starting on Monday, November 20. As you might expect, these include desktops and laptops spanning a wide range of price, with a couple of tablet deals sprinkled in (and plenty of component deals, if you are more of a build-your-own-PC type).

While its Chromebook deals can’t get as low as Best Buy’s £99 doorbuster[2] (aside from a refurbished Dell for £99.99), Newegg has a pair of Chrome-running Asus laptops on sale for £169.99 apiece — both include 4GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, but the C201PA-DS602 includes a Rockchip RK3288C quad-core processor and 11.6-inch screen, whereas the C300SA comes with an Intel Celeron CPU and 13.3-inch display.

Similar bargains aren’t available for Windows laptops, however, which start at £389.99 with an Asus X555DA-BB12 that features an AMD A10-8700p processor, 12GB of RAM, 2TB hard drive, and 15.6-inch display. For £10 more you can get a thinner-and-lighter Asus ViVoBook with AMD A9, 8 gigs of RAM, 256GB solid-state drive and 14-inch full HD display. (This deal doesn’t start until Thanksgiving, however.) If prefer Intel inside instead, Newegg has a pair of Acer Aspire laptop deals: the A515-51G-5536 with Core i5-7200U, 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive, 15.6-inch display, and Nvidia GeForce 940MX graphics for £449.99, or the A517-51G-54GK with similar specs but an additional 256GB SSD included and a larger 17.3-inch screen for £559.99 (available starting on Black Friday itself).

There are also a couple of 15.6-inch notebooks for under the £600 price point for gamers on a tight budget in the form of an Acer Aspire E5-575G-562T (Core i5-7200U, 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive and 128GB SSD, GeForce GTX 950M graphics) for £539 or a slightly beefier MSI GL62M with Core i5-7300HQ, 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive, and GeForce GTX 1050 graphics for £599. Similarly, there are no ultra-cheap desktops on sale in Newegg’s ad, but you’ll at least get a faster system. Starting at £449.99, the Acer TC-780 comes with Core i5-7400 processor, 8GB of memory and 256GB SSD, or the Dell OptiPlex has a Core i5-7500 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 500GB hard drive for £529.99.

For £60 more than the Dell, you can move up to a CyberpowerPC gaming system with AMD Ryzen 5 1400 processor, 8GB of RAM, terabyte hard drive, and GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card. Two other gaming desktop specials under £1,000 are a CyberpowerPC with Ryzen 7 1700X processor, 8 gigs of RAM, 1TB hard, GeForce GTX 1060 graphics for £799.99 and a iBuyPower with Core i7-7700, 8GB of RAM, terabyte hard drive, 120GB SSD, and GeForce GTX 1060 for £899.99. Tablets have mostly fallen out of favor compared to a few years back, but Newegg does have a few deals on them.

They have a 7-inch Android for just £34.99, but you’re probably better off grabbing an Amazon Fire 7 for £5 less elsewhere than purchase a Vulcan Pulse with just 8GB of on-board storage.

On the other end of the price spectrum, there’s an 8.4-inch Huawei MediaPad M3[3] Android tablet for £219, or its MateBook E Signature Edition Windows 2-in-1, a Microsoft Surface clone, with Core M3-7Y30 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, and 12-inch touchscreen for £499.99.

Finally, penny pinchers who don’t mind very old hardware can snare a refurbished Apple iPad 2 for £99.99 or a refurbished iPad 4 with Retina display for £149.99.
