You're usually looking at a few hundred quid more than this to get a laptop of this spec, and this Lenovo model is currently £20 cheaper than the next best deal. 12GB of RAM should run multiple standard applications at once and in addition to 1TB hard drive you'ere also getting 8GB of the faster Solid State Drive. There's a generous two year guarantee too.

Big specs, small cost

Deal price: £300 £290
View this HP 250 G4 deal at ebuyer

There's some serious grunt under the shell of this HP 250 G4 and £290 is a great price. The i3 processor and 8GB of RAM mean this laptop will whip through pretty much any day-to-day activity you can throw at it without the juddering performance of cheaper laptops. Hell, it'll even have a decent crack at playing a few of the less demanding games out there and with a 1TB drive you'll be able to cram in plenty.

One of the best Chromebook laptops around

Deal price: £180
View this Toshiba CB30 deal at Laptops Direct

If you live most of your online life in Google land then there's plenty of reasons why you should get a Chromebook and this one from Toshiba, provides with a great experience at a great price. Chromebooks get automatic updates and are less prone to malware. It comes with a quad-core CPU, has 2GB of RAM and a full HD 13.3-inch display. A larger-than-average display and higher-than-average resolution means that it is equally at ease for gaming or productivity tasks. We love its MacBook Air-esque look, its 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity and its expandability options.

4: Lenovo Yoga 700

Perfect for businesses... And everybody else!

Deal price: From £450
View this Lenovo Yoga deal from John Lewis

Take an old favourite and update it; that's essentially what the Lenovo Yoga 700 is, an updated version of the Yoga 2 Pro. Almost the same chassis but with different parts and a much lower price. You get 8GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and a full HD 11-inch touchscreen display. The latter comes in handy to bring to life the device's four-modes: laptop, tablet, tent and stand. As far as we can tell, this deal is £70 cheaper than the next best offer.

Deal price: £160
View this Dell Inspiron 11 3000 deal at John Lewis

This cool blue laptop adds a bit of colourful style to the usually grey lineup of laptops. Speaking of eye-catching, we also noticed this comes with McAfee Internet Security 2016 Unlimited Devices. The modest 2GM of RAM is balanced out with a 5-hour battery life, USB 3.0 and HDMI-out features. This will suit the more casual user or maybe as a first laptop for the younger user.

7: HP Pavilion Notebook 15-ab271sa

Surprisingly good value for money

Deal price: £329
View this HP Pavilion deal at PC World

With purple accents, this laptop will stand out of the crowd in a good way. Cramming a fifth-generation Intel Core i3 processor with 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard disk drive, it hits all the right notes if you're looking for an affordable laptop within a reasonable budget. It's the Iris graphics sub-system that powers it which is the stand-out component of the lot however. It is even faster than some discrete graphics cards. Better yet, it's £50 cheaper than last week.

8: HP Essential 15

A multi-faceted laptop

Deal price: £269
View this HP Essential 15 deal from HP

Available in silver or red, the HP essential 15 uses a powerful, AMD Quad-Core A6-6310 processor with 4GB RAM memory, a DVD drive and a 1TB hard disk drive. Customers can pick up an extra two years of warranty (pickup and return) for a mere £22.80. Curiously, even if it is an entry level laptop, it still packs 802.11ac Wi-Fi and a 4-cell battery, rather than a 3-cell one found on many of its competitors. And while it is a 15.6-inch model, it weighs a mere 2.2Kg, making it almost as light as some Ultrabooks we've seen.

View this ACER Aspire F5-571 deal from Currys

This stylish Acer laptop is packing some serious specs for not a lot of money. This 15.6-inch laptop comes packing an i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive and Windows 10. You only need to look at some of our other more expensive deals to see what great value you're getting here. We wouldn't expect stock to last long at this price.

10: Asus X555LA

Great all-rounder laptop

Deal price: £370
View this Asus X555LA deal from Amazon

We're looking at a decent £20 discount this week. From afar, this laptop might be mistaken for a MacBook Pro which tells you a lot about its level of quality. Don't expect a full metal chassis at this price though but this is probably one of the best looking plastic body in its category. There's plenty of ports (old and new), a powerful Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and a massive 1TB hard disk drive. Asus saw it fit to include a DVD writer as well as a 15.6-inch full HD monitor. Despite this large display and the presence of a numeric keypad, it is just a tad thicker and heavier than a chubby Ultrabook.

View this Lenovo Yoga 300 deal on eBay

This refurbished 2-in-1 laptop comes with a 12 month guarantee from Argos' eBay account and represents one of the cheapest laptop/tablet hybrids around. Brand new models of the Lenovo Yoga 300 usually cost at least £200. It's not very powerful, but if you're mainly using it for browsing, editing documents or media viewing it's more than capable.

12: Venturer BravoWin

A tough drop-friendly 2-in-1 convertible

Deal Price: £150
View this Venturer BravoWin deal at Amazon

There are plenty of budget tablet/laptop hybrids around, but the 10.1-inch Venturer BravoWin is built to last thanks to its extra rugged design that outclassed the competition in a series of drop tests at 1.2m. It's ideal for clumsy children or teens needing something to survive being chucked about in a schoolbag. Specs include Windows 10, 32GB storage, 2GB RAM, a Netflix-friendly 1280x800 display, HDMI out and USB ports, a Micro SD slot and up to eight hours of battery. More than enough for casual use and homework alike. There's also an 11.6-inch version.

Asus Zenbook UX305

Ultrabooks are beautiful and expensive beasts but this is the exception

This is one of the best value Ultrabooks on the market and has been on our shortlist for a few months already. Its price has gone up marginally because of the exchange rate but with a gorgeous finish, a full HD display and a Core M CPU for just under £530, it is the one to beat.
