Save hundreds on a new laptop in the Christmas sales

The holiday season is in full swing, and tech retailers are treating potential customers to deals on budget-priced and high-end laptops. If you’re looking to uncover a bargain before the end of the year, we’ve rounded up some laptop deals to take a look at. The price cuts we’ve spotted could see you pick up a laptop for as little as GBP130.

Remember, when you’re shopping for a computer, always think twice when you see a supposed bargain. By doing your research, you can be sure that you are indeed getting a discount, and that the model you’re buying is worth your money. After all, whether you’re spending GBP130 or GBP1,300 on a laptop, you don’t want to waste your money on a bad deal for bad tech.

The latest deals on Christmas laptops

Lenovo Ideapad 110S – GBP129.99 (John Lewis)

On sale for GBP130 at John Lewis, this Lenovo could be on your radar if you’re a buyer on a budget. It has an 11.6-inch display, an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of Ram and 32GB of storage. Those specs certainly aren’t the best around, but they are good enough for editing documents and managing emails.

The Ideapad 110S weighs in at just over a kilo, which makes it a good potential commuting companion. We sent this laptop off to our test lab to see how many hours you can squeeze out of it on a single charge. To see how it fared in our lab tests, see our Lenovo Ideapad 110S review[2].

Asus VivoBook E203 – GBP199.99 (PC World)

This Asus laptop is powered by an Intel Celeron N3350 processor and 2GB of Ram. Although the 11.6-inch VivoBook isn’t up to video editing with those specs, it should cope well with basic web browsing and Microsoft Office software. You’ll have just 32GB of internal storage to fill up on this lightweight laptop, so it’s not geared to storing masses of files and programs.

But, it takes just eleven seconds to wake up from sleep. To see how this affordable model scored in our rigorous tests, head over to our full Asus VivoBook E203 review[3]. HP Pavilion x360 14 – GBP599.99 (PC World)

Unlike the other laptops on our list, this model is a laptop/tablet hybrid, which means you can fold the 14-inch screen and carry the Pavilion around like a tablet.

This laptop is available in a number of different configurations, but this discounted model at PC World has an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of Ram and 256GB of storage. With that much Ram, it should be able to cope if you like running multiple apps at once. Although we haven’t tested this specific model, we’ve had our hands on one of its sister models, a lower-spec Pavilion with a Pentium 4415U processor, 4GB of Ram and 128GB of storage.

For the details, see our HP Pavilion x360 14 review[4]. Lenovo Ideapad 320 – GBP449.95 (John Lewis)

The Ideapad is now under GBP500, so you might be considering it if you’re shopping for a budget laptop this Christmas. This model has a Dual Core i5 processor and 8GB of Ram, so it’s well-equipped despite the price.

It has a 14-inch Full HD display, and Lenovo says that watching films is a treat, thanks to a pair of Dolby-enabled speakers. The Ideapad model we’ve tested has a seventh-generation i3 processor, 8GB of Ram and a 128GB solid-state drive. But does this ‘everyday machine’ offer enough to set it apart?

To see if this Lenovo laptop is a proven Best Buy, head over to our Lenovo Ideapad 320 review[5]. Dell Inspiron 15 7570 – GBP719.99 (PC World)

Originally on sale for around GBP1,000, this Windows 10 laptop from Dell is now closer to GBP700. It has an i5 processor, 8GB of Ram and 256GB of storage.

A wide viewing angle means you’ll be able to see things clearly even if you’re viewing the display head on, and an NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics card makes this suitable for on-the-go gaming. We’re still waiting on this laptop to return from our test lab, so keep checking our laptop reviews[6] page for the details when they arrive. Lenovo Ideapad 710s – GBP749.95 (John Lewis)

Here’s another laptop on sale at John Lewis this Christmas.

The premium Lenovo Ideapad 710s is powered by an i7 processor and a whopping 8GB of Ram, so it should serve up more than enough power for most users. It has a 13.3-inch Full HD screen, and its small bezels on the side of the screen make for a more immersive viewing experience. It weighs around 1.07kg, making it lighter than many ultrabook rivals, including the Dell XPS 13[7].

Although we haven’t tested this model, we have put the i5 model through its paces. To see if it’s worth your hard-earned cash, read our Lenovo Ideapad 710s review[8].

Which laptop brand is best?

While our range of Best Buy laptops are a pleasure to use in the office and at home, dreaded Don’t Buys are slugglish with poor battery life. Without the help of our expert reviews, you risk buying a laptop that’s difficult to use, slow and prone to faults.

Got an old laptop? Donate it to Social Box instead of eBaying it

Social enterprise wants 1,000 laptops to be distributed to people in homeless shelters. Instead of trying to flog your old laptop off on eBay or at a boot sale, Social Box would rather you sent it their way instead – the UK-based social enterprise is aiming to supply 1,000 people in hostels with refurbished devices. Increasingly, as services like Universal Credit head online, those in the 9 per cent of Britons who’ve never used the Internet stand to lose out.

As well as helping people develop IT skills, the idea is to give people access to support and services they need, as well as providing a communications lifeline with friends and family. Social Box[1] will check and refurbish all devices handed in before passing them on to London-based charity Thames Reach[2] for wider distribution. Speaking to The Inquirer[3], Peter Paduh, founder of SocialBox said: “It’s about bettering our communities and societies by taking the laptops some view as no longer needed and giving them to the people who need them the most.”

Jeremy Swain, CEO of Thames Reach added, “These laptops will give the homeless and marginalised people who receive them the opportunity to communicate with friends and relatives, develop new interests, and access advice to improve their skills and employment prospects.” If anyone you know is in need of a cheap refurbished PC or laptop for themselves or their family, they should in the first instance check out Go On UK[4], so see if there are any local support groups who can help. Failing that, you can pick up a cheap refurbed machine from places like Microdream[5] and Compu-Zone[6].

If you’re applying for Universal Credit (or know someone who is) and you/they need Internet access, you can get BT Basic[7], an ADSL service that’s cheaper than the usual rate and only available to people receiving benefits.
