The humble PC will remain an important purchase for the hybrid working era but you might not have too much to spend on one. Whether you want a gaming rig, all-in-one or a traditional desktop PC tower we’ve found the best discounts around.
We’ve been shopping the sales for you to find the best legitimate discounts and voucher codes so you find the best bargains with ease.
Since they’re usually expensive at full price, PCs often have some of the deepest discounts around. And with a constant churn of new components you can always find massive savings by opting for hardware that’s a year or two old – but often still plenty powerful.
We’ve got gaming machines, basic desktops and all-in-one (AIO) PCs. We also have plenty of great
laptop deals if a PC isn’t the right choice. We also have the overall
best tech deals.
As a rule of thumb, if you see the right product within your budget then make sure you don’t miss out as prices can change quickly or stock run out.

PC deals 2022: What to look for
More than with most things, it’s worth making sure you know how much a given component or PC setup is worth – retailers love to advertise reductions that aren’t quite as good as they appear, by quoting the initial RRP rather than a product’s most recent price. Plan what components you want – and how much they cost normally – and you can make sure you don’t get fooled by dodgy “discounts”.
The biggest discounts are on pre-built desktops and all-in-one computers (think iMacs, where the computer and the screen are built into the same unit). If you’re happy to build your own, or upgrade your existing setup, keep an eye on component sites though.
