Best general-purpose laptop deals
A family laptop doesn’t need to do much aside from sit on a desk and occasionally make its way to the sofa and occasionally go on the move.
These picks are the hottest family laptop deals around.

2. Lenovo IdeaPad 320S – Now £349.99, save £50
If you need something a bit lighter for when you take your laptop out and about, the Lenovo IdeaPad 320S is a top choice. With its 14-inch chassis and svelte 1.69kg weight, this machine is inherently baggable. With an SSD on board along with an Intel Pentium Gold processor, performance for your web browsing and office tasks is right at hand.
Best student laptop deals
If you’re a student whose work consists almost exclusively of making lecture notes and bashing out essays in the library, you’ll want something low-power and lightweight.
These laptop deals will get you both at a decent discount.
