Best Deal

Asus 3 ZenBook UX390UA – £1147.66 down from £1499 from Ballicom

Easily the most portable laptop on the list, this light device is perfect for those on a constant grab-and-go cycle. It weighs less than a kilogram, has 12 hours of battery life, is ultra-affordable and gets the job done.

HP Stream 11-y050sa 11.6″ Laptop – Aqua Blue – £149.99 down from £179.99 from Currys

If you’re really trying to make your budget stretch, this HP laptop is priced at just £149.99 at Currys (dropping £50 from £179.99). The Stream comes with a one-year subscription to Microsoft Office and 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage – there’s also a £269.99 bundle that throws in an external 1TB hard drive and protective sleeve as well.

Best laptop deals £200-400

HP Chromebook 14 G4 – 14″ – Celeron N2940 – 4 GB RAM – 32 GB SSD – £303.47 down from £325 from BT

HP has made massive strides forward with its Chromebooks and this edition is one of the best. Running off of Google’s browser-based Chrome operating system, it has 3G capabilities that are free for a year – meaning you don’t need to go rooting around for the closest Wi-Fi hotspot.

Acer R11 Intel Celeron 4GB RAM 32GB Storage 2 in 1 White Laptop – £229 down from £249.99 from Tesco Direct

This laptop-tablet hybrid comes at an affordable price and has decent battery life. Its 11.6-inch screen has also been designed to diminish blue light effects, reducing eye strain.

Best laptop deals £600-800

Microsoft Surface Pro 4 – 128GB / Intel Core i5 – £760 down from £949 from Microsoft

This 12-inch hybrid is a competitive offering from Microsoft. It has a fantastic touchscreen and fast processing speeds, though it does have some very strong rivals – but with this kind of a discount, it’s worth jumping on board the Surface Pro 4 train. The less powerful version with Intel Core m3 is even more affordable, priced at £635 down from £749 through Microsoft (though you’ll have to buy a Surface Pen stylus separately). Students, make the most of your discounts here.

Best laptop deals £800+

Dell XPS 13 13.3-Inch QHD Touchscreen Notebook – (Silver) (Intel Core i7-7500U, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Windows 10) – £1279.00 down from £1379 from Amazon

We’ve hailed this as ‘the best Windows ultra-portable that money can buy’ and we’re still massive fans. With a super-powerful Intel Core i7 processor, amazing screen quality and 8GB RAM, it’s an ideal choice for those who do serious work on the move. If power isn’t as much of a concern, the version with an Intel Core i5 processor is slightly cheaper at £1100 on Amazon.

Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar – £2018.99 down from £2349 from

The MacBook Pro is always a sure-fire hit with every new iteration and the current update is top of the line. While you do really have to pay for what you get, this 15 inch version with an Intel Core i7 and 16GB RAM is best bought through at a £300+ discount.
