Hybrid computers are also available that combine the CPU power of notebooks with the portability of tablets. The day after Thanksgiving is the impetus of the holiday shopping season that boosted global PC shipments to 75.7 million units in Q4 2015.

Best Buy is slashing the price tag of an HP Tower with 27-inch monitor about 43 percent from $1,050 to $600, according to Wired. The PC/monitor combo is a steal of a deal and a great choice for a home office.  


Best Buy has discounted select models of Apple MacBook up to $200. Apple is somewhat of a Scrooge McDuck during the holiday season but it is offering a few hundred bucks off MacBooks starting at $1,100.

Costco, meanwhile, is offering a 14-inch Google Chromebook with 1080p IPS display for $230 starting on November 25, Friday. The portable computer with a 22 percent-off sale is bundled with a wireless mouse.
