Best Buy's Black Friday ad is always one of the most anticipated of the holiday shopping season, and one pleasant surprise with its release this year is that many of the deals are already available, a sign that online shopping continues to erode the "magic" of Black Fridays past when people trampled each other to get to doorbuster specials before they ran out. We've covered Best Buy's Black Friday Apple deals elsewhere, but below are several other sales that caught our eye.
Black Friday 2019: Top Best Buy deals

Samsung 3 Chromebook 11.6-inch laptop for $89.99
The lowest price we've seen for a new laptop so far this Black Friday comes courtesy of this Chromebook, which is $10 less than the HP Chromebook 11-v010nr deal at Target and elsewhere. On the other hand, it comes with half the RAM and built-in storage of the HP, and its Intel Atom x5 CPU is less powerful than the HP's Celeron processor. But if you want the absolute cheapest notebook, Samsung is the winner thus far.
Lenovo IdeaPad 1 14-inch laptop for $129.99
For a little more money, the IdeaPad provides quite a bit more computer than the Samsung Chromebook deal does, while still costing less than $150. It's equipped with an AMD A6-9220E dual-core processor, 4 gigs of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 14-inch display to run Windows 10 instead of Chrome OS.
