Don't pay full price for a new laptop when you can easily get a deal and save loads of money. And we're talking about some the latest models from the likes of Asus, Microsoft, Huawei, HP and more.

Black Friday and Boxing Day might be in the past but there are still plenty of sales around and therefore lots of great deals - yes, even in March. Retailers will likely be keen to promote them, but don't forget to check out deals directly from manufacturers.

We'll point you in the right direction below and remember some are plain discounts while others require a voucher or code - we'll let you know what they are.

Note that Amazon Prime Day is confirmed for June so may have good laptop deals, but there's no guarantee that prices will be any lower so don't wait if you see the right price on the right device - stocks might run out.

What to look for in laptop deals

There are often decent savings on Microsoft’s Surface range at the moment, as the company is trying to shift older generation Intel models. The same is often true of other brands and a device that's only the previous generation is still new enough to buy and will still last many years.

Retailers like Currys PC World, John Lewis, Argos and AO almost always have plenty of deals on laptops. With the right offer, you’ll be able to pick up a half-decent machine for around £300 instead of £500, for example - not bad.

You might also see reductions on budget laptops but bear in mind that you are getting what you pay for here - they might be fine for web browsing and Netflix, but they'll be slow and unreliable for anything more challenging than that. That's especially true of Chromebooks, which pair low specs with a simple OS for wallet-friendly prices but a slightly more limited feature set.

Higher-ticket items like a Surface Pro or HP’s ultrabooks may still be expensive at around £800 or over a grand, but you might be able to save hundreds on the RRP. See our dedicated round-up of the best Microsoft Surface deals.

Apple's MacBooks are a little trickier to get discounts on, as offers are rare, but you can often pick up a model that's a year or two old for less than the RRP (and still get great performance), and it's also always worth checking out Apple's official refurbished store.

Amazon usually has some of the biggest bargains. If you find that you’re missing out on Amazon’s Lightning deals, which run for just a few hours and offer limited stock, we'd recommend signing up for Amazon's 30-day free trial of Prime, which will get you access to deals 30 minutes before everyone else. 

Plus, you'll get free next-day delivery with the Prime trial, as well as access to Prime Instant Video and more. Sign up for Prime now.

If you don't have Prime, you can still buy items discounted in Amazon's regular sales events. The latest of these was its Spring Sale, which concluded at the end of March 2021.
