If you're looking for a new PC then you've come to the right place. There are plenty of great deals to be had even though Black Friday is long gone. We've picked the best machines from the January sales.

Given they have a pretty high price in the first place, PCs tend to be a great bet for special offers, and with components constantly getting updated, there's always a steady stream of last-year's-models to pick up at discounted rates.

We've got gaming machines, basic desktops, all-in-one AIO PCs. We also have plenty of great laptop deals if a PC isn't the right choice.

PC deals 2021: What to look for

More than with most things, it's worth making sure you know how much a given component or PC setup is worth - retailers love to advertise reductions that aren't quite as good as they appear, by quoting the initial RRP rather than a product's most recent price. Plan what components you want - and how much they cost normally - and you can make sure you don't get fooled by dodgy "discounts".

The biggest discounts are on pre-built desktops and all-in-one computers (think iMacs, where the computer and the screen are built into the same unit). If you're happy to build your own, or upgrade your existing setup, keep an eye on component sites though.

Where to find PC bargains

Where you want to go depends a lot on what you're looking for. If you want to buy a pre-built computer or just some simple accessories, then some of the standard electronics retailers are the best bet:

If you're looking to pick up components though, you'd be better off looking at the following (some of which sell pre-built PCs too, for what it's worth):

Amazon has some of the biggest bargains but other retailers offer tempting deals too, including Currys and Argos.

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.
