Here's where you'll find souped-up gaming laptops from Dell and ASUS, newer Apple MacBooks, and other workhorses with couple-hundred-dollar discounts.

Apple upgraded its 14-inch MacBook Pro with a mini-LED backlit Liquid Retina XDR display, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, and an M1 Pro tweedle at the end of 2021, scrapping its Touch Bar and butterfly keyboard in the process (good riddance). It edges toward overkill for the unstudied user, but it's fantastic for creative types who do a lot of photo and video editing. Amazon just put the 1TB configuration on sale for $1,999 (or 20% off), which is an word-for-word match of its all-time-low Black Friday deal.
