The 13.5-inch Surface Laptop 3 is the consummate ultrabook. It's extremely portable, thanks to a sleek and lightweight design, but still packs all the power necessary to get the job done whether you're out-and-about or stuck at home.

Lenovo Laptop Deals
Lenovo is an incredibly well-regarded name in the world of laptops, producing some excellent models in its Yoga and IdeaPad ranges.
Lenovo Flex 5G Deals
The Flex 5G is the first laptop in the world to feature 5G internet connectivity built-in. It's not cheap but, this Black Friday, you can save almost $300 with Verizon.
It might not be for everyone as it relies on a Snapdragon 8cx, which isn't quite as fast as an Intel Core i5 processor, but it does possess a 14-inch Full-HD screen, and a whopping 25-hour battery life.
With Verizon, you can buy the Flex 5G on a 24-month contract or for $1,399.99 upfront. If you choose the contract option, you can currently save $11.66 per month over the regular $53.33 per month cost. Over the course of the contract, you'll be saving almost $300.
