Black Friday Laptop Deals 2017: All the best discounts today
Cyber Monday is here, and we’ve got some smashing deals on laptops. Some left over from Black Friday, and some fresh out of the gate.
Yes, it’s true, this might be the best time EVER to buy a laptop. Why? A culmination of ridiculous price-matching from every UK retailer, and the fact that laptop makers are trying to shove their older models out of the door quicker than ever as they make room for new, 8th-gen Intel and AMD Ryzen laptops. Together, this makes for one of the best Black Fridays we’ve ever seen.
If you’re overwhelmed by choice or you’re confused about what specs will suit your needs, we’ve got some incredibly handy advice on stuff you need to know before you buy a laptop in our best laptops guide.
