What to look for in laptop deals

There are often decent savings on Microsoft’s Surface range at the moment, as the company is trying 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 almost always have plenty of deals on laptops. With the right offer you’ll be able to pick up a half decent machine for around £300 instead of £500, for example - not bad.

You might also see reductions on budget laptops (below £200 or so) but bear in mind that you are getting what you pay for here - they might be fine for web browsing and Netflix, but they'll be slow and unreliable for anything more challenging than that. That's especially true of Chromebooks, which pair low specs with a simple OS for wallet-friendly prices but a slightly more limited feature set.

Higher-ticket items like a Surface Pro or HP’s ultrabooks may still be expensive at around £800, but you might be able to save a few hundred on the RRP.

Apple's MacBooks are a little trickier to get discounts on, as offers are rare, but you can often pick up a model that's a year or two old for less than the RRP (and still get great performance), and it's also always worth checking out Apple's official refurbished store.

Amazon usually has some of the biggest bargains. 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.
