How to get the best laptop deals
To make sure you get the best deals, have a good idea of what type of laptop you want and what your budget is, and be flexible on the brand.
Before jumping headfirst into any deals, make sure you take the time to check the key specs, such as RAM (memory), CPU (central processing unit) and screen resolution (for example, retina). Obviously, the more advanced versions, the higher the price will be.
How much you need to pay for your laptop
Of course, everyone has a budget in mind, depending on what they need from their laptop. Here's a quick breakdown of the price you should expect:
1. Less than £350
Some Windows laptops and Chromebooks fall into this category, but they offer more basic functionality. Great if you're looking for lightweight options and want to perform office tasks, browse the internet and perhaps stream multimedia.
2. Around £800
With a jump up to around £800, more mid-range laptops become available, including some Apple MacBooks. This means better capabilities for photo editing, video streaming and games as well as a better speaker and screen resolution.
3. Over £1000
High-end and gaming laptops are often among the higher price brackets, but they are great for graphic design, video editing and, of course, gaming. They tend to include 8 to 16GB of RAM and at least Intel Core i7 processor.
