Memorial Day laptop deals are already kicking off – here are our top picks
Memorial Day laptop deals are kicking off this weekend, with plenty of discounts across a massive range of retailers. We’re seeing some significant savings up for grabs right now, on everything from budget everyday machines to seriously powerful rigs. Now that we’re just one day away from the day itself, things are starting to heat up.
We’ve scoured all the latest Memorial Day sales to bring you the very best laptop deals from across the web. That means you don’t have to worry about spending on a rig that won’t see you through your workday, or a screen that won’t keep up with your Netflix account. We’ve vetted each retailer’s Memorial Day laptop deals and rounded up all the gold right here.
And that’s a lot of gold. You can spend as little as $98 (opens in new tab) and grab a super cheap Chromebook right now at Walmart (that’s the sales price of an 11.6-inch HP model, down from $225). Or, for something that can handle a few more tasks without breaking the bank, we’d recommend checking out HP’s Memorial Day laptop deals. You can score a 17.3-inch machine for just $299.99 right now (opens in new tab), that’s $190 down from the original $489.99 price.
You’ll find all the latest sales from retailers across the web just below, and our top picks from this year’s Memorial Day laptop deals further down the page.
HP 11.6-inch Chromebook |
$225 $98 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
Save $127 – You can pick up the 11.6-inch HP Chromebook for under $100 at Walmart right now. That’s about as cheap as these laptops get, and excellent value for this budget build. There’s an AMD A4 processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB of storage in here – perfect for light everyday browsing.
Samsung Chromebook 4 11.6-inch laptop |
$229.99 $129.81 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $103 – If you’re after a super cheap laptop, look no further than the Samsung Chromebook 4. While that 11.6-inch display isn’t going to work out for more demanding productivity tasks, this is a solid spec for everyday web browsing and streaming. You’re getting a baseline Intel Celron N4000 processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB of eMMC storage under the hood.
Asus 14-inch laptop |
$259.99 $139.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $120 – If you can spring the extra $10 for this 14-inch Windows machine, though, we’d heavily recommend it. You’re getting a massive 128GB of storage here, excellent for this price tag, and a slightly speedier Intel Celeron N4020 processor as well.
Asus 17.3-inch Chromebook |
$369 $179 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $190 – This is a rarity; a big-screen Chromebook at well under $200. That 17.3-inch display is going to come in particularly handy for lighter multi-tasking (you’re still only getting 4GB RAM here, so nothing too demanding), as well as streaming all your favorite shows. Plus, you’re jumping up the processor scale again, with an Intel Celeron N4500 CPU.
Dell Inspiron 15 3000 15.6-inch laptop |
$299.99 $229.99 at Dell (opens in new tab)
Save $70 – The Dell Inspiron 15 3000 is an excellent budget buy, and Memorial Day laptop deals have this Intel Celeron N4020 model even further under $300 this weekend. You’re getting a 128GB SSD for speedier storage under the hood here as well.
Lenovo ThinkPad C13 13-inch Chromebook |
$599 $249 at Lenovo (opens in new tab)
Save $350 – We rarely see premium 2-in-1 laptops at just $249, but this Lenovo ThinkPad Chromebook is doing just that this weekend. You’re picking up a baseline 4GB / 32GB spec here, but with extra functionality in that tablet design as well.
HP 14z 14-inch laptop |
$429.99 $279.99 at HP (opens in new tab)
Save $150 – HP’s Memorial Day laptop deals kick off with this $150 discount on the HP 14z. This AMD 3020e configuration packs 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD. That’s a considerable step up from the other sub-$300 options available to you right now.
HP 17z 17.3-inch laptop |
$489.99 $299.99 at HP (opens in new tab)
Save $190 – If you’re after the big-screen treatment, you can also pick up this 17.3-inch version of HP’s budget laptop lineup. Packed with an AMD Athlon Gold 3150U processor, 8GB RAM, and a 128GB SSD, this is a solid bet for anyone looking to stream or multi-task on a larger display.
Acer Aspire 5 15.6-inch laptop |
$389.99 $339.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $50 – It’s a smaller saving than you might find elsewhere in this weekend’s Memorial Day laptop deals, but this $339 sales price on the Acer Aspire 5 is working particularly hard for you. That’s because of the i3-115G4 processor under the hood and 128GB SSD keeping everything speedy as well.
Lenovo IdeaPad 3 15.6-inch laptop |
$499.99 $349.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $150 – Packing 8GB RAM, a 128GB SSD, and an i3-115G4 processor, this Lenovo IdeaPad 3 is an excellent lower mid-range option with a solid discount at Best Buy. If you’re looking for an all-rounder that won’t break the bank, we’d heavily recommend checking in on this model.
Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 13.3-inch 2-in-1 OLED tablet |
$499 $379 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $120 – This one’s a little different. The Lenovo Chromebook Duet is technically a tablet with a keyboard case shipped in the box. However, you’re getting a gorgeous OLED display, a 128GB SSD, and a flexible form factor here.
Lenovo IdeaPad 3i 14-inch laptop |
$699 $399 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
Save $300 – This is a particularly stunning offer – a $400 laptop packing a 512GB SSD. That’s something we just don’t see, especially considering you’re not sacrificing RAM to reach that low price. This model comes packed with 8GB RAM and an i5-10210U processor.

HP 17t 17.3-inch laptop |
$649.99 $449.99 at HP (opens in new tab)
Save $200 – This HP 17t is offering it all and doing so at a great price. You are dropping down to a slower SATA hard drive (as opposed to the SSDs we usually see at this price range), but you’re doubling down to get all 1TB of it. That’s plenty of space not usually found in a machine this cheap. Elsewhere, you’ll find an i5-1135G7 processor and 8GB RAM rounding out this spec, with a huge 17.3-inch display up top.
HP 15.6-inch laptop |
$549 $479 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $70 – There’s a fantastic 1TB SSD packed away in this sub-$500 laptop at Amazon. That’s an incredible feature in a machine of this price, especially considering you’re also picking up 16GB RAM to support it. Sure, the processor is a step back – a small Intel Celeron N4120, but if you’re after a workhorse rather than a speed demon, this is a must-see deal.
MSI Modern 15 15.6-inch laptop |
$599 $499 at Newegg (opens in new tab)
Save $100 – If you’re after something a little different, we’d recommend checking this MSI Modern machine. This is the gaming brand’s line of productivity rigs, packed out with a Ryzen 5 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD – and sporting a $100 discount in Newegg’s Memorial Day laptop deals.

Memorial Day itself kicks off on Monday, May 30, but we generally see early offers rolling out over the weekend itself. We’re already enjoying a massive range of Memorial Day laptop deals, so it’s time to dive in.
It may be tempting to wait for the official Memorial Day date itself. However, we often see the best Memorial Day laptop deals landing over the weekend before. If you spot an offer you like in the days leading up to the main event, it’s well worth jumping in ahead of time, as the more popular discounts may have left the shelves by the end of the weekend.
We’d recommend starting your search at bigger retailers like Best Buy, Amazon, and Walmart, though if you’re looking for something particularly powerful or premium, it’s also worth heading to laptop brands directly. HP, Microsoft, and Dell are all excellent options.
We’re also rounding up all the best Memorial Day TV deals and Memorial Day Nintendo Switch deals. If you’re looking for more desk accessories, though, take a look at the latest Memorial Day monitor deals. Of course, we’re also rounding up all the latest Memorial Day gaming laptop deals live right now too.
