Black Friday doesn’t take place for another week, but UK retailer Box isn’t waiting until then to launch some excellent laptop deals.
Monday’s ZenBook 13 OLED deal has now expired, but there’s an equally great offer that’s worth your attention. The latest VivoBook Pro 14, also from Asus, is down to just £499.97 from its usual £899.97. That’s a £400 (44% discount), and offers better specs than almost every laptop around this price.
There’s no specified expiry date for this deal, but Box said there were only 200 units available as of this morning. If you’re seriously considering it, take advantage before it’s too late.
If that’s not enough, Box is also offering a discounted bundle with extra accessories. Adding a Logitech wireless mouse and laptop will cost you an extra £24.98 – £10 cheaper than usual. To take advantage, just click ‘Add both to basket’ under the main imagery on the page linked above. But it’s completely optional – the £400 saving on the laptop will apply regardless.
There’s also some flexibility in terms of getting your hands on the device. Box is offering free next-day delivery (Monday-Friday) if you order by 7pm, or free collection from any of the 2,500 DPD collection points across the UK.
Once it does arrive, you’re unlikely to be disappointed. The VivoBook Pro 14 uses a powerful AMD Ryzen 5 processor, alongside Radeon integrated graphics and 8GB of RAM, making it a great option for everyday use. It might not be included in its name, but that 14in, 2880×1800 screen is OLED and features a 90Hz refresh rate for silky-smooth visuals.
You also get a generous 512GB SSD and plenty of ports: 3x USB-A, 1x USB-C, full-size HDMI, SD card reader and 3.5mm audio jack. Almost no budget laptops can match that.
Newegg and Amazon usually sell the VivoBook Pro 14 in the US, but there’s only used stock available at the moment and no discounts of note.
