Walmart’s Cyber Monday laptop deals start as low as $249

A quick look at the best early Cyber Monday laptop deals from Walmart:

Walmart generally isn’t the best place to score laptop deals. (That title goes to Best Buy.) But when the holidays roll around, shoppers in search of cheap PCs should keep their eyes on the big box store: It’s offered $79 Chromebooks during Black Fridays past.

While we’re not seeing Walmart’s laptop prices dip that low quite yet, it did roll out some solid deals on traditional and gaming models as part of its first Black Friday Deals event — including a $479 MSI gaming laptop with NVIDIA GeForce 3050 graphics. (That one was sold out at the time of writing.)

Keep reading for a rundown of the best deals worth adding to your cart ASAP, and check back often: We’ll be updating this story with additional laptop deals from Walmart through Cyber Weekend as we find them.

Traditional laptops


Our pick: Lenovo IdeaPad 1
$302.99 at Walmart (save $36.01)



Why we like it

Lenovo’s IdeaPad 1 is a 15.6-inch laptop that’s billed as a lightweight and modern-looking entry-level pick; it’s best suited for basic tasks like web browsing and schoolwork. Its 14-hour battery life is the only thing on its spec sheet that’s relatively notable, though it does punch above its early Black Friday price point with last year’s AMD Ryzen 3 7320U processor, 8GB of memory, and 256GB of SSD storage — most budget laptops we find for around $300 have puny Intel Celeron N Series CPUs, 4GB of RAM, and slower eMMC storage that maxes out at 128GB.

Gaming laptops

Why we like it

Walmart’s $479 MSI GF63 Thin deal didn’t stand a chance, but this $489.99 Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 is still hanging around. It’s got an older NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 graphics card but this year’s AMD Ryzen 5 7535HS processor, which connotes a thin, portable gaming PC. You could probably stand to upgrade its RAM down the road (it comes with 8GB of memory), but it’s perfect as-is for undemanding games like Grand Theft Auto V and Fortnite.
