Should I buy a laptop on July 4th? 

If you’ve been holding off on picking up a new laptop or tempted to make an upgrade, Fourth of July is a great time, with deals shaving off hundreds of dollars from typical asking prices. Amazon Prime Day isn’t far away either, so if you don’t see anything you like, you know that sales event is only around the corner, too. Black Friday is usually the absolute best time of year to score the steepest savings, so if you can wait until late November then you may get a better deal. But that’s many months away, and if you need a laptop for heading back to school, then now’s the time to buy.

What are the best July 4th laptop sales?

Sales come and go throughout the year, but the biggest retailers are always pretty dependable when it comes to laptop sales. That’s no different for July Fourth sales with Amazon, Walmart, Target, Best Buy and Costco all taking part, among others. On top of this, expect manufacturers like LG, HP, Dell and the likes to get in on the action with deals available directly on their own sites. We’ll be monitoring all of these throughout the event. 

What else is on sale during July 4th? 

The week surrounding the July Fourth holiday is known for ushering in tons of sales and offering cut-price products from lots of the biggest brands out there. Whether you’re after tech, mattresses, garden furniture, kitchen appliances or all of the above, there’s a good chance retailers will be providing plenty of discounts. 

How we choose the best July 4th laptop sales

Many of us here at CNET have covered shopping events for over five years, including Black Friday, Prime Day, Memorial Day and countless other shopping events. In that time, we’ve learned how to spot the best deals among a sea of thousands of superficial offers and scams, and we only surface the best offers from trusted retailers.

We look for real discounts, quality reviews and remaining sale time when choosing laptop deals to show you. We have a team of devoted experts who have tested hundreds of smart home devices to make sure we’re only bringing you the best of the best.

  • Real discounts mean genuine savings. We check pricing history for products listed as on sale so we know when it’s a case of an inflated list price rather than an actual discount. 
  • Quality reviews and testing are super important for any product, and especially when it comes to the laptop you’re going to use every day. A discount isn’t worthwhile if it results in a subpar product experience, no matter how much you saved. 
  • Remaining sale time is important, too. Some deals are only around for a short time or may be limited in supply. If that’s the case, we’ll let you know upfront so you don’t come back to the deal later only to be disappointed.
