By , dealnews Senior Feature Writer

Get ready to tear into Cyber Monday's best laptop deals! Many of the Editors' Choice deals are at new all-time low prices. But act fast, as these deals are bound to sell out. Also, why not bookmark this page? We'll be updating it throughout the day with the latest laptop deals.

  1. Dell Vostro 3560 Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7 2.1GHz 15.6" LED-Backlit Laptop
    Store: Dell Small & Home Office
    Price: $799 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $510

    Is It Worth It?: At a savings of $510 off, this is the best price we've seen for a Vostro 3560 equipped with an Ivy Bridge Core i7, though we did see this configuration bundled with a $100 gift card in September. This 5.8-lb., "utilitarian beast" packs an Intel Core i7- 2.1GHz Ivy Bridge quad-core processor, a 15.6" 1080p LED-backlit widescreen LCD, 6GB RAM, a 500GB 7200 rpm hard drive plus a 32GB SSD, a AMD Radeon HD 7670M 1GB video card, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, 6-cell battery, Bluetooth, Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, and more.

  2. Dell Inspiron 15R Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7 2.2GHz 15.6" LED-Backlit Laptop
    Store: Costco
    Price: $599.99 with $29.95 s&h
    Lowest By: $112
    Expires: Today

    Is It Worth It?: Like its Core i3 siblings, this 6-lb. Dell Inspiron 15R still offers "workhorse performance," but for just $600. While non-Costco members will pay $30 more for this mainstream laptop, this deal is tied with our Thanksgiving mention as the lowest total price we've seen for any Dell Inspiron 15R notebook with a Core i7 processor. It features an Intel Core i7 2.2GHz Ivy Bridge quad-core processor, 15.6" 720p LED-backlit LCD, 8GB RAM, 1TB hard drive, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth, 6-cell battery, and Windows 8.

  3. Dell Inspiron Intel Core i5 2.5GHz 15.6" LED-Backlit Laptop bundled with a $25 eGift Card
    Store: Best Buy
    Price: $399.99 with free in-store pickup
    Lowest By: $105
    Expires: November 26

    Is It Worth It?: If you can live without a SSD and absolutely need a CD/DVD drive, this is the budget Dell machine for you. Assuming you use bonus $25 eGift Card, this is the lowest price we've seen for a 16" Dell Inspiron laptop with an Ivy Bridge Core i5 CPU. Its 2.5GHz Ivy Bridge dual-core processor is complimented by 4GB RAM, a 500GB hard drive, and Windows 8. Note that the $25 eGift Card will be e-mailed to you four to seven days after your order has been picked up in store.

  4. Toshiba Satellite C875-S7303 Intel Ivy Bridge Core i3 2.4GHz 17.3" LED-Backlit Laptop
    Store: Best Buy
    Price: $399.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $130

    Is It Worth It?: At 5.7 lbs., this notebook is relatively light for a desktop replacement. In fact, the Dell above is a full pound and a half heavier than this Toshiba. (The Dell makes up for the difference with more RAM and storage.) Moreover, this deal is also the lowest total price we've seen for any 17" laptop with the latest Ivy Bridge processor. Additional features include an Intel Core i3 Ivy Bridge dual-core processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, and Windows 8.

  5. Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.4GHz 11.6" Convertible Touchscreen Ultrabook
    Store: Lenovo
    Price: $679.20 via coupon code "CYBERMONDAY" with free shipping
    Lowest By: $170
    Expires: November 28

    Is It Worth It?: Fans of the thin and light ultrabook trend will love this deal, as it's the lowest total price we've seen for any IdeaPad Yoga laptop so far. This 2.8-lb. 0.61"-thick ultrabook is just a month old, and it conveniently converts into a touchscreen tablet. Reviews have been mixed for the model, although Engadget calls it "an intriguing specimen" with a versatile design. The publication laments the usability of the tablet mode but says that ultimately it's a strong ultrabook for its price class. It features an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 720p touchscreen, 2GB RAM, 32GB eMMC (flash-based storage), and Windows RT.

  6. ASUS VivoBook S400 Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 1.7GHz 14" Touchscreen Ultrabook
    Store: Microsoft Store
    Price: $499 with free shipping EXPIRED
    Lowest By: $200

    Is It Worth It?: This 4-lb., 14" touchscreen VivoBook is $50 more than our mention of its 12" sibling (now expired), but will help you make the most of the new Windows 8 interface; at just $499, it's the lowest total price we've seen for an Ivy Bridge Core i5-equipped VivoBook. It features the latest Intel Core i5 1.7GHz Ivy Bridge dual-core processor, a 14" 1366x768 LED-backlit multi-touchscreen LCD, 4GB RAM, a 500GB hard drive and 24GB SSD, Windows 8, and more.
