'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Black Friday may be over but laptop sales are still going strong.

The HP Envy x360 15 is on sale at Best Buy, and it caught our eye for a number of reasons. First, it's unique. It is a 15.6-inch widescreen 2-in-1, which is still fairly uncommon. (Its competition includes models like Lenovo Yoga 7i and Dell Inspiron 15 2-in-1.) Second, the laptop is 40% off, but the deal ends Saturday night. You have until the end of the day on Nov. 26 to cash out.

You can get one 15.6-inch model for around $499 (normally $799) with an AMD Ryzen 5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of memory. There's also a 13.3-inch HP Envy 2-in-1 with Intel Core i7, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of memory for $649 (normally $1,049). This particular deal doesn't have a timer on Best Buy, but it might end soon -- maybe even Cyber Monday weekend. 

According to our sister site CNET, the AMD Ryzen 7-powered Envy x360 actually gets you better performance for your money. 

ZDNET is tracking the best Black Friday 2022 laptop deals still available, and honestly, this one is perhaps the best notebook sale we've seen all week. We also spotted an HP Pavilion laptop that's half off, if you're shopping for inexpensive Windows workstations.

We'll bring you more deals as we spot them. In fact, check out our Black Friday live blog for the latest tech discounts in real time.
