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.

Asus E402MA

This is a fantastic deal on a punchy that's pretty but not pricey

Deal price: £130
View this Asus E402MA deal at ebuyer

We love this deal because this laptop comes with a Pentium processor, which is great for this price. It is also slightly bigger than the competition in this price bracket which allows for a bigger display, a less-crammed keyboard and, most importantly, more ports than on smaller models. Buy it if you're on a strict budget and want something with a decent keyboard.

Dell Inspiron 11-3162

A stylish 11.6-inch laptop

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.

Toshiba 1

Toshiba CB30-B-104

One of the best Chromebook laptops around

Deal price: £170
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.

Ideapad

Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15IBD

A refreshing design and a great price tag

Deal price: £249
View this Lenovo IdeaPad deal from Tesco

It's great to see that Lenovo has decided to refresh its range with a new design, one that includes new hinges and a thinner chassis, almost squeezing it into the Ultrabook category. It is a 15.6-inch laptop and yet manages to weigh only 2Kg. On top of that it is the cheapest Core i3 in the UK, comes with 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard disk drive. Tesco's deal is £40 cheaper than the next best deal.

HP Essential 15

A multi-faceted laptop

Deal price: £249
View this HP Essential 15 deal from HP

£20 cheaper than last week and available in white, silver, red, blue and purple. 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 £29. 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.

HP1

HP Pavilion Notebook 15-ab271sa

Surprisingly good value for money

Deal price: £330
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.

Asus X555LA

Great all-rounder laptop

Deal price: £390
View this Asus X555LA deal from Amazon

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.

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, much lower price. You get 8GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and a full HD 11-inch touchscreen display. The latter comes handy to bring to life the device's four-modes: laptop, tablet, tent and stand.

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.
