Microsoft will no doubt discount some of its core Xbox One S consoles with the unveiling of the next generation (Xbox Series X) just landing, as well as the company's impressive Surface range of 2-in-1s, laptops, and tablets.
Lenovo and Dell are sure to be at the top of our list of stores to check out when it comes to discounted laptops, desktops and PC gear – both across the gaming front and the business side of things.
