1. General laptop deals...

These are aimed at people that care mostly about absolute value for money and make up the bulk of the market. We've therefore sorted them by price as that's the most important criteria for the overwhelming number of buyers. Aim for at least 4GB of RAM and a quad-core (or fast dual-core) processor plus ample of storage space. They usually have 15-inch displays and are therefore not the most portable of laptops.

2. Chromebook/Netbook deals of the week

Chromebooks have been reviving the affordable small format laptop that was pioneered by Netbooks a few years ago. The former is based on Google's Chrome OS while Netbooks are based on Microsoft's Windows OS.

A good Chromebook or Netbook is one that comes with a fair amount of ports, ample memory and a fast processor. Note that most of them have a small screen.
