Navigating the swarms of cheap laptop deals can be a bit overwhelming with so many options to choose from here in the UK. Luckily for you, we’re checking through the net’s laptop sales throughout the year, so we know how to spot a bargain.

With such a competitive scene in the UK for laptop deals, there’s plenty to choose from 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 even split this guide into sections based on price.

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. We sometimes chuck in gaming-friendly laptops if they meet our sensible price criteria. 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 in our always-updated guides.

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 Chromebook C223NA £169.99 at Amazon
£60 less this week. Chromebooks like this are super cheap and a viable alternative to your standard Windows laptop, even more so if you’re used to using Google’s suite of office apps. This one comes with a useful 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which is surprisingly roomy without the bloated Windows OS. We’d opt for this one over the sometimes cheaper 16GB Chromebooks.

Gemini TC10 10.1-inch 2-in-1 laptop £169.97 at Amazon
This is a mega cheap 2-in-1 laptop/tablet convertible with some decent bang for your buck. 4GB of RAM, a HD screen (nice for streaming!) and 64GB of storage make this a very handy device for basic work needs with casual browsing and Netflix sessions catered for too. It’s not the most recognisable brand out there for sure, but it’s a tempting buy if you want a touchscreen on your laptop for a price way under £200.

HP Chromebook 11 £169 at
If you’re after one of the cheapest Chromebooks around to try out saying goodbye to Windows, then this 11-inch model is worth a look. 4GB of RAM is enough for very basic work activities, although the 16GB of storage is a bit rubbish. There is free access to 100GB of online storage though to make storing your files online super easy.

£200 – £400 laptops

Dell Chromebook 11 2-in-1 laptop £299.99 at Amazon
This is more expensive than most of the other Chromebooks on this page, but it is a 2-in-1 laptop – which means it has a touchscreen and can be folding over to use like a tablet. You’re also getting 4GB of RAM and an extended 64GB of storage. If you fancy a Chromebook but you’re not bothered about the touchscreen and you don’t need that much space for media files, then you could opt for one of the cheaper deals mentioned earlier.

Lenovo V110 15.6-inch laptop £304.97 at ebuyer
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. There’s a roomy 1TB hard drive too. If you’re going to be spending significant amounts of time at a desk working with a laptop, this is a solid performer.

Acer Aspire 3 14-inch laptop – £359 at
This popular and portable Acer model has an especially large 256GB SSD (loads faster than a regular hard drive) considering the super low price you’re getting. 4GB of RAM is fine for light multi-tasking activities like checking email, listening to music, running a few browser tabs, editing documents and so on. The Full HD screen is great for relaxing with movie content too.

£400 – £650 laptops

Lenovo V130-15IKB 15.6-inch laptop – £444.42 at ebuyer
Large SSD drives are fantastic for increased performance and faster loading times, but they can really drive up the price of a laptop. Which is why we’re surprised to see this laptop deal weighing in way under £500 with a 256GB SSD, 8GB of RAM and an i5 processor. A powerhouse on a budget for sure.

HP 15.6-inch laptop – £499.99 at Argos
If you’re not too bothered about a SSD for storage we’d take a look at this HP laptop deal. It comes with a roomy 1TB hard drive and a meaty 8GB of RAM making it great for multi-tasking with minimal slowdown. If you’re not going to be stuffing the laptop with media files though, you may appreciate the faster loading an SSD offers over the expanded storage here.

£650+ laptops

HP Envy X360 2-in-1 laptop £799 £699 at Amazon
HP’s versatile Envy X360 convertible laptop is £101 cheaper today. This version comes with an AMD Ryzen 5 processor, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD and a Full HD display. If you’re intending to use this in touchscreen mode on a regular basis that’s some slick spec for a convertible.

Acer Swift 5 14-inch laptop – £799 at Currys
There’s something about these blue and gold laptops that always catch our eye. This Acer model’s allure goes beyond skin deep affections though with an 8th-gen i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. It’s super portable too with a smaller 14-inch screen which makes carrying it around a fair bit easier than your standard 15.6-inch laptop, whilst maintaining a decent keyboard size. Currys has knocked £200 off today too!
