Laptop deals of the week:

Ideapad

1. Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15

A refreshing design and a great price tag

Deal price: £232
Voucher code: TDX-HYW3
View this 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. A DVD writer caters for your backup needs (or if you have a large collection of CDs and DVDs) and the 15.6-inch display is big enough to make watching movies enjoyable.

2. Asus T300 Chi Transformer Book

A stunning 2-in-1 convertible

Deal price: £379.98
View this deal on Ebuyer

We stumbled on that magnificent product and found it hard to believe the price. This Asus laptop comes with a Core M processor making it far faster than a lot of the Core i3 processors you might find in this price range. It has 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and the fact that it comes with Windows 8.1 makes us believe that it is a clearance offer. What sets it apart from others though is that it is a 12.5-inch model with a WQHD resolution, which should translate into an absolute feast for the user's eyes. Oh and it has, of course, a detachable keyboard.

View this deal on eBay

This Windows 10 ready two-in-one convertible provides a bargain entry point to the world of laptop/tablet hybrids. If you're looking for a lightweight device to carry with you out of the house or to chill on the sofa with for checking email, web browsing or editing documents, this is ideal. The six hour battery life should keep you going for a while too.

4. Asus T100 Transformer Book

One of the most affordable convertible laptops around

Deal price: £148
View this deal from Debenhams Plus

This is an older version of the T100HA we had on offer and comes with an even cheaper price tag making it, by far, the cheapest 2-in-1 laptop on the market. It has only 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage but that's what you'd expect anyway from an Android tablet in this price range. Except this one comes with a detachable keyboard, one with a proper touchpad.

5. Asus X555LA

Great all-rounder laptop

Deal price: £390

View this 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.

The best deals on the best value laptops:

Techradar has reviewed hundreds of laptops over the years: we've seen the good ones, the great ones and the ones to avoid. Sometimes our favourite laptops pop up online at some truly deal-tastic prices. So in this section, we'll list some of the very best laptops out there and the best deals on each.

Zoostorm

Zoostorm 7270-9013

This is the best affordable slim-and-thin laptop on the market

This is a laptop like no one on the market so the word unique is fitting here. It packs a tablet-size touchscreen with plenty of ports including a Gigabit one, a relatively spacious 500GB drive and plenty of system memory. The big surprise though remains the old-but-still very capable Celeron 1037U that powers it.

Dell Inspiron 15 7559

Dell Inspiron 15 7559

This is the best value-for-money laptop for gamers

See the best PRODUCT NAME deals

It is expensive but this Inspiron 7559 absolutely nailed it when it comes to value for money especially for hardcore gamers. It is even out-prices Dell somehow and manages to beat laptops that costs a third more when it comes to specifications. A quad-core desktop-grade Core i7 CPU, full HD display, a GTX960M with 4GB of memory and a 1TB hybrid drive.

Lenovo Yoga 700

Lenovo Yoga 700

A worthy rival to the UX 305.

This is essentially the award winning Yoga 3 Pro but in the shell of the Yoga 2, launched in 2013. A new Intel Core m3-6Y30 replaces the first generation Broadwell chip and there's a couple of new parts. The rest of the components are the same. Hat tip. Buy it from John Lewis to get 2 years warranty and until the 9th of April get £50 cashback to make this even more unmissable.

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.
