We only recommend cheap laptops and brands we’ve tested, so we know they’re not rubbish

Laptop slowing to a crawl? Did that last browser tab finally push your tireless friend to breaking point? It might be time for an upgrade. Helpfully, we’ve rounded up the best laptop deals in the UK to help you grab a portable PC or Macbook at a great price.

The rise of remote working means more of us than ever are shopping around for the best laptop deals, though finding the ideal machine depends on how you plan to use it.

The latest trend in the market is the two-in-one, or foldable, laptop. The device can be used as a traditional laptop, but also folded over to form a touchscreen tablet. The extra versatility has captured the imagination of PC users, with most major brands now producing multiple two-in-one models.

It’s also important to know how to spot a good budget option. Chromebooks, for instance, started out life as cheap, less-powerful alternatives to traditional laptops, but some have developed into genuine rivals to Windows and Apple products. The price has remained impressively low for many Chromebooks, meaning they’re a solid choice for most people’s personal and professional lives.

So, which laptop should you buy? From lightweight notebooks to the two-in-one Swiss army knives of the market, to dedicated gaming setups, we’ve scoured the internet for the best laptop deals the UK has to offer.

This is a slim, lightweight laptop weighing just a smidge over 1kg.

  • Memory (RAM): 16GB

At Currys there’s £400 off one of the best laptops Huawei makes. The matebook 14s is a powerful all-rounder backed up by Intel Evo credentials, meaning it boots up from sleep mode in fractions of a second and sports an all-day battery life. It also looks the part: slim and stylish, with a hint of the MacBook air (£1,119.97, Amazon.co.uk) about it.

In our Huawei matebook 14s review, our tester was impressed. “The matebook 14s evo is the smartest-looking device Huawei has ever made,” they said. “This laptop’s standout feature is the display. It has a crisp 2520 x 1680p touchscreen with 100 per cent sRGB coverage, meaning colours are rich, accurate and dynamic.”

The Asus TUF dash F15 sports a 144hz screen for silky smooth frame rates and is equipped with a high-performance GTX 3050 TI graphics card that can handle even the latest releases. This particular model has been clocked running Call of Duty: Vanguard at 100fps.

Best: Chromebook deal

  • Screen size: 10.1in
  • Operating system: Chrome OS
  • Storage capacity: 64GB
  • Processor: MediaTek Helio P60T
  • Memory (RAM): 4GB

A very affordable 2-in-1 from Lenovo, the ideapad duet is a zippy little Chromebook-come-tablet that doubles as a laptop thanks to its included magnetic keyboard cover and stand. The crisp 1920 x 1200 resolution screen is pretty much unheard of at this price, and is excellent for getting some work done while on the go or watching Netflix shows while you commute. We chose the Lenovo ideapad duet as our best buy in our list of the best Lenovo laptops, where our reviewer described it as “a quick, sleek and versatile piece of kit.”

Because it runs on Google’s own mobile-friendly operating system, it’s energy efficient, has an all-day battery life and recharges quickly.

It’s 18 months old now, but Apple’s latest Macbook air still has a lot going for it, especially when it comes to the speedy M1 processor and a battery life of up to 18 hours. This deal is specifically for the entry-level model with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage and finished in gold. The laptop is said to be up to 3.5 times faster than its predecessor, while the lack of a fan means it runs silently. There’s also a fingerprint sensor for unlocking the laptop and making online purchases using Apple Pay.

The laptop is finished in space grey, has a claimed battery life of up to 21 hours, and features a number of ports, including HDMI, USB-C and an SD card slot.

It also has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, but a longer battery life, at a claimed 20 hours, and a fan that kicks in to keep things cool when the laptop is being worked especially hard. This particular model is offered in space grey or silver grey.
