cheap laptop deals sales prices

Checking through the cheap laptop deal scene here in the UK can be a bit overwhelming as there are so many options to choose from. Luckily for you, we're used to sifting through the net's laptop sales all year round. .

So if you need to buy a new laptop sharpish, we should be able to find you something that fits with your budget nicely. We've split this guide into sections based on price to help you keep that budget in check.

We'll give you a bit of info about each laptop we highlight too, so you can see some specs at a glance before you click through to the store and have to browse their lengthy descriptions for those vital stats you're after. 

Not everyone needs a super powerful laptop, especially if you just want something for the basics like casual browsing, email and document editing, so don't feel like you have to spend £500 on a laptop for that - you can get something for far less if you want. Naturally, if you're a bit of a multitasker, love to have loads of tabs open and want a little extra grunt for media editing, we've found laptop deals with higher spec. Chromebooks get a mention most weeks too as they're increasingly popular nowadays as users look to ditch Windows for the stripped down speedy Chrome OS instead. For you Apple fans, you might be interested in our MacBook prices and deals page too.

If you're from the States or Down Under, be sure to check out our selection of the top laptop deals in the US or Australia.

Cheap laptop deal of the week

Lenovo V110 15.6-inch laptop | £317.99 at Amazon
This is a fantastic price for a full-sized laptop with 8GB of RAM, allowing you to multitask away with an abundance of tabs, apps and programs running at once. This is a great price for a laptop loaded with a 256GB SSD too. If you're going to be spending significant amounts of time at a desk working with a laptop, this is a solid performer.

Cheap laptop sales and deal highlights

Laptops under £200

Asus VivoBook E201NA 11.6-inch laptop | £159.99 at Amazon
If you need a basic, super cheap laptop that won't take up all the space in your bag when you're mobile, this is a real contender for a seriously low price. 4GB of RAM is enough to run basic tasks easily enough and the 64GB of storage will easily handle the Windows updates that the 32GB models struggle to cope with.

Asus C423 14-inch Chromebook | £199.99 at Argos
Unlike some of the cheaper Chromebooks, this one has a sleek chassis that belies the sub-£200 pricetag. 4GB of RAM in a Chromebook is plenty of standard multitasking and having a fair few tans on the go at once. 32GB of storage could be better, but the Chrome OS won't suffocate with oversized updates like a Windows laptop with that much storage would.View Deal

£200 - £300 laptops

Asus X540NA 15.6-inch laptop | £229.99 at Amazon
Save £70 today. This laptop deal offers excellent value with 4GB of RAM for light multitasking and a large 1TB of storage for well under £300. The chocolate black colour scheme won't be for everyone, but you've gotta love that price.

Asus X540MA 15.6-inch laptop | £239 at AO.com
For a full-sized laptop this is one of the cheapest offers we've seen this week considering you're getting 4GB of RAM and a roomy 1TB hard drive. A handy machine for working through the basics away from the office or classroom.

Lenovo C330 2-in-1 Chromebook | £259.99 at Very
This 11.6-inch laptop deal is seriously tempting if you've been itching to try out the world of Chromebooks. It's a 2-in-1 convertible and comes with a very manageable 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There are cheaper Chromebook options available, but they lack the build quality and eye-pleasing nature of this lovely Lenovo.

HP 14-ck0031na 14-inch laptop | £299 at AO
The main selling point of this cheap laptop is the large 256GB SSD. Not bad at all for just under £300. The i3 processor and 4GB of RAM are decent enough for some low-level multitasking too. However, there are couple of models with double the RAM for not much more cash if you cast your eyes down this page a bit further.

Asus Chromebook Flip

Arguably the best value Chromebook around

CPU: Intel Pentium 4405Y – Intel Core m3-6Y30 | Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 515 | RAM: 4GB | Screen: 12.5-inch, FHD (1,920 x 1,080) LED backlit anti-glare | Storage: 32GB – 64GB eMMC

Premium quality for a low price
Stylish tablet mode
Tactile keyboard

On release, the Chromebook Flip reached new heights for the Windows-free laptops as it came rocking a proper Intel Core processor along with a HD screen. Most models nowadays come with 64GB of storage instead of the 32GB which is plenty for running apps and storing regular documents and a fair few media files - you can always use a USB drive for more space. For most users, the newer PixelBook is what we'd call 'overkill', not to mention considerably more expensive, so we'd recommend this model if you just need something for work, browsing the net and so on. The Chrome OS works beautifully in this 2-in-1 laptop's tablet mode too.

HP Pavilion 15

HP Pavilion 15

The de facto learning laptop lives on

CPU: AMD dual-core A9 APU – Intel Core i7 | Graphics: AMD Radeon R5 – Nvidia GTX 1050 | RAM: 4GB – 16GB | Screen: 15.6-inch HD (1,366 x 768) – FHD (1,920 x 1,080); touch optional | Storage: 128GB SSD – 1TB HDD

Thinner and lighter
Tons of options
Shallow, squishy keyboard

A sturdy choice for a study laptop for school/college/uni. The HP Pavilion 15 has plenty of power for the average student's needs while keeping the costs sensible. There are plenty of configurations available too. Some favour speedy SSDs, while other go for larger regular hard drives, so it all depends on what you're going to need more really. Faster loading or more space for storing media files and downloads.

Asus Transformer Mini T102HA

Asus Transformer Mini T102HA
