Best Dell laptop for small business
Dell’s Vostro range (which includes both laptops as well as desktop PCs) are aimed specifically at small businesses. There are actually three ranges: the 3000, 5000 and 7000.
The 3000 series is designed for entry-level tasks, and starts from only £479 – this is the discounted price.
The 5000 series is thin and lightweight, so are well suited to those that may be traveling a lot for work.
The 7000 series are more expensive laptops aimed at execs or those who need extra performance for demanding tasks.
How to choose the best Dell laptop for your business
It is important to consider exactly what the laptop will be used for before buying. Particularly when going for a laptop on a budget, you have to be aware that it may not live up to your expectations.
For instance, it could be slower than you had anticipated, or it might not have much storage space. It’s also crucial to consider ergonomics, particularly screen quality which tends to dip when you’re buying an entry-level laptop. This isn’t something you can glean from specifications alone, and why it is important to read our reviews.
You may not need Windows 10 Professional – Home will suffice for many small businesses. But do read our

When is Black Friday 2020 – should you wait for a better deal?
Black Friday will take place on Friday 27 November, immediately followed by Cyber Monday on 30 November. Traditionally the biggest sales event of the year, it may yet throw up some even greater tech deals – but with so much uncertainty around finance and retail, and no guarantees regarding what discounts we will see, we advise you not to wait: if you see a deal you like, on a product you need, and you can afford the outlay, buy it today.
