The year’s biggest sale event has reached its final day. Cyber Monday laptop deals are coming in thick and fast, giving you the best chance yet to pick up one of the best laptops of 2023 at a big discount.

Laptops from premium brands such as Dell, Huawei, Microsoft and Apple are seeing hundreds of pounds knocked off their usual price. Even the latest MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops are offering savings, while budget-friendly laptops, Chromebooks and student laptops from Asus and Acer are dropping to record lows.

It can be hard to tell which cheap Cyber Monday laptops are a genuinely good deal. In previous years, the Cyber Monday sale has been awash with misleading offers and artificially inflated ‘before’ prices, and a slew of no-name laptop brands often dominate the front page of Amazon’s own listings.
