Forget Prime Day and get one of the best laptop deals we've seen all year right now

Currys has one of the best value laptop deals we've seen this year in its latest clearance sale. And we're seriously questioning if there's going to be anything better than this during Prime Day.

The Asus VivoBook 15 is now just £499 (was £749). That's a huge £250 saving on a device that comes packed with high-end components, including an Intel i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a large 512GB. This sort of top-tier performance is only found in laptops for well over £600 or more, so this is a rare opportunity to pick one up for far less than the usual price.

Definitely consider it as this Asus VivoBook 15 will excel as your all-purpose laptop for general everyday use, more intensive work, and multitasking. Our one word of warning is that the battery life is a little underwhelming at just six hours on a single charge. If you're always on the go and need a laptop that lasts longer then we've got some premium Chromebook deals for around the same prices. These take a small hit in performance but can easily double that battery life.

Still, if the Asus VivoBook 15 looks like the right laptop for you then we'd suggest grabbing it sooner rather than later as it's unclear how long these clearance offers will last at Currys.

– We're sticking with the unbelievable price for this high-end Asus VivoBook 15 as the top offer in this week's Currys clearance sale. In fact, it's one of the best laptop deals we've seen for some time. Normally, you'd pay well over £600 for a machine with this sort of power inside, including a top-of-the-line Intel processor and a large 512GB SSD. The fact it's all available for £500 today means nothing else comes close in this price range. Snap up this high-performance all-purpose device immediately before it sells out.

For more options, you can view the entire Currys computing clearance sale, which features more of the best cheap laptops, budget Chromebooks and premium ultrabooks. Amazon's yearly mega-sale kicks off in less than three weeks, too, where you can expect even more deals on laptops, tech and household goods. It's going to be hard to find a laptop that beats this in terms of value for money, though.
