Best Black Friday Walmart laptop deals: Save up to $551

UPDATE: Nov. 8, 2023, 12:55 p.m. EST This story has been updated with additional laptop deals from Walmart‘s first Black Friday deals event.

A quick look at the best early Black Friday laptop deals at Walmart:

the Lenovo IdeaPad 1

the MSI GF63 Thin

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 just rolled out some solid deals on traditional and gaming models online as part of its first Black Friday Deals event on Wednesday, Nov. 8 — including a $479 MSI gaming laptop with NVIDIA GeForce 3050 graphics. The sale started at 12 p.m. ET in early access for paid (non-trial) Walmart+ members and opens to the public at 3 p.m. ET; if you’re worried about anything selling out, you can score a one-year subscription for half off through the end of the day.

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 as we find them.

Traditional laptops

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 less than $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

Sleek and slim, the MSI GF63 Thin is a portable gaming laptop with a 15-inch 144Hz display. This configuration comes with an 11th-generation Intel Core i5 H-Series processor, a high-performance CPU from a few years ago, as well as last year’s NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card. It’s not cutting-edge by any means, but it should still be plenty capable of running newer games. (Several reviewers say it can easily handle Baldur’s Gate 3 and Diablo IV, which is super impressive and honestly kind of surprising. Expect it to get a little hot under the hood.) It also packs 16GB of memory and 512GB of SSD storage, which are specs we rarely see in laptops under the $600 mark.
