January sales laptop deals
HP Omen 17an013na with a FREE mixed reality headset (was £1,299.95, now £999.95)

It’s not just the specs that make this a good buy – although with a seventh generation i7 procesor, 8GB RAM and a 6GB Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card, it’s certainly no slouch – but the freebie John Lewis has included.
