Here’s our definitive list of the best laptop deals you need to be aware of this Cyber Monday.
Best UK laptop deals under £300
For sub-£300, you’ll be getting a laptop that’s functional rather than super-speedy, but there are some decent bargains out there as long as your expectations are suitably managed.
For starters, this Lenovo IdeaPad 110S at John Lewis might not be the flashiest of laptops, but it’s yours for only £129.
Likewise, this HP 14in bundle from Argos, for example, is a decent price for what you get. Available in gold, grey or red, the laptop comes with a quad-core Intel Pentium 1.6GHz n3710 processor, backed with 4GB RAM and a 128GB SSD. It won’t be a gaming machine, but it’ll perform school and work tasks well, and be perfectly good for pootling around the internet for just £280.
You can’t get much better than this Lenovo IdeaPad 320 either. For just shy of £300, Lenovo’s IdeaPad offers a generously-specced machine, complete with an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and a generous 1TB of HDD storage. It’s one of the best-priced laptops on this list and should serve you well if you make the jump.
If you’re not wedded to Windows, then you could save a few quid by considering a Chromebook. The ASUS C201PA-FD0015 11.6in Chromebook is a sleek looking product – and although the 2GB RAM means it won’t win any benchmarking battles, it is yours for a tenner under £200.
There’s also Dell’s excellent Chromebook 11 to mull over, too. It’s ruggedised – perfect for little hands – and is equipped with an Intel Celeron N3060 processor, 4GB of RAM and 16GB eMMC storage. In short, it’s a well-built laptop and is ideal for work on the go – ideal at just £204.
Best UK laptop deals under £500
If you can afford to make the jump, spending under £500 means you get a lot more bang for your buck, and fortunately, there are plenty of deals to choose from at this level.
For starters, this Lenovo Ideapad 320 deal is great. For just £399 at Currys you get the latest Intel Core i5 processor, complete with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD storage.
There’s also HP 15-bs559sa 15.6in laptop – £349 at Currys. You get an Intel i3-7100U processor clocked at 2.4GHz, as well as 4GB RAM and a full 1,920×1,080 screen.
Oh, and this HP 14 deal isn’t to be missed, either. For just £400 (that’s £250 off if you were wondering) this 14in HP laptop comes equipped with a Kaby Lake Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Edge closer to £500, and the specs get better still. Samsung’s wonderful Galaxy Book is a laptop/tablet hybrid and is yours for only £499 at Very. A very good deal.
The HP 250 G6 2SY46ES for £449.99 from eBuyer is also a bit of a beast: an Intel i5-7200U 2.5GHz processor, 8GB RAM and a speeding 256GB SSD mean this will fly by in most tasks – and it has a full 1,920 x 1,080 screen in the mix too.
At a penny under £500, there’s another excellent choice: Lenovo’s 80XL03FVUK 15.6in laptop – £499.99 from PC World. The i5-7200U processor of the HP 250 G6 is backed by 8GB RAM and a whopping 2TB of hard disk space, all wrapped in a sleek, understated case.
You can even get an eight-generation i5 processor if you shop around. Take the Asus VivoBook S410UA-BV125T, which is £499 at AO.com. It packs an Intel i5-8250u, 8GB RAM and a 128GB solid-state drive. Only downside: the screen is a slightly reedy 1,366 x 768 jobby.
Best UK laptop deals under £1,000
When you get to the sub-£1,000 mark, the laptops begin to get really powerful – with their own dedicated graphics chips fit for gaming on the go.
First up there’s the Dell Inspiron 15 5000, available direct from the Dell site: it’s listed at £899.01, but until 22 November, the retailer is giving back £100 cashback on computers over £799, plus an instant £100 off laptops over £899 with the code “SAVE100”. Put those deals on the Inspiron 15 5000, and you’re getting a whole lot of laptop for not that much money: an eighth generation Intel i7-8550U processor, 16GB RAM, AMD Radeon 530 graphics, a 256GB SSD drive and a 2TB hard drive. Whoosh: all yours for £699.01.
Medion also has a cracking laptop deal at the moment, with its gaming-focussed Medion P6881 laptop. There’s a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card on board, so you know it’ll handle most games you throw at it. Yours for only £650 at Argos – that’s £100 off.
Next, there’s Microsoft’s latest Surface Pro, complete with the latest i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD storage for just £849 at Currys PC World. Not only that, but Microsoft’s Typecover is thrown in at no extra cost.
You also might want to consider picking up Dell’s excellent XPS 13. It’s the cheapest its ever been, with configurations starting at just £967. Just be sure to use coupon code ‘SAVE 15’ for your 15% off.
Likewise, if 13in doesn’t satisfy you, the Dell XPS 15 starts at only £1,231.
Best UK laptop deals over £,1000
If you really want to push the boat out though, you’ll want to look at the ASUS Zenbook UX510UW-FI095T from saveonlaptops.co.uk. This £1,099.97 beauty packs a 2.7GHz Intel i7-7500U processor, 16GB RAM, a 256GB SSD, 1TB hard disk, GeForce 960M graphics card and a 4K screen. It doesn’t hurt that it’s quite the looker too.
Don’t forget about the Razer Blade Stealth, either. It isn’t as equipped for gaming as its regular Blade counterpart, but that’s not to say Razer’s excellent Windows 10-powered isn’t worth your time. In fact, it’s one of our favourite portable workstations 2017 has to offer, and starting at just £1,249, it’s a blooming steal.
There’s also Asus’ excellent ROG Zephyrus laptop, complete with the latest Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU, yours for only £2,349 from Laptops Direct.
Lastly, there’s the latest MacBook Pro. Apple’s portable powerhouse has begun to creep ever so close to £1,000, with prices starting from just £1,300 for the non-Touchbar Core i5 model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage over at Currys PC World.
