Black Friday is a confusing time for consumers because not all the deals available are genuinely good. It’s easy to get caught up in the hype and spend money on something you might not necessarily need (or just spend too much money).

Laptops are a high value item that we would all love to save money on, and despite us having to wade through the bad deals on Black Friday, there will be good laptop deals out there. 

Best laptop deals right now

Black Friday may not officially arrive until 24 November, but the deals are coming early this year, and have already begun on sites including AmazonCurrys and ArgosYou can find a ton more good deals on all things tech on our main deals site.

What to expect

There are usually decent savings on Microsoft’s Surface range, and this is set to continue as the company will try to shift seventh generation Intel chip models as we see the eighth generation Coffee Lake replace Kaby Lake.

Retailers like Currys PC World, John Lewis, Argos and AO will also have plenty of deals on laptops. Often you’ll be able to pick up a half decent machine for around £300 instead of £500, for example - not bad.

Higher ticket items like Surface Pro or HP’s ultrabooks may still be expensive at around £800, but you could save a few hundred on the RRP. If you were already weighing up a buy, Black Friday can be a good day to drop the cash.

Amazon will have some of the biggest bargains, and its Black Friday discounts kicked off a little early with the first deals appearing from 17th November, a full week before Black Friday itself.

If you find that you’re missing out on Amazon’s Lightning deals, which run for just a few hours and offer limited stock, we'd recommend signing up for Amazon's 30 day free trial of Prime, which will get you access to deals 30 minutes before everyone else. Plus, you'll get free next-day delivery with the Prime trial, as well as access to Prime Instant Video and more.
