Boxing Day and January laptop sales: the best deals on MacBooks, Dell, and more
Boxing Day laptop sales: quick links
The Boxing Day laptop sales are still going, and they don’t seem to be slowing down – we’ve been checking the stock levels of all the top deals below and nothing has fallen out of stock… yet.
Fingers crossed, we should be seeing a few of these price cuts extend out into the larger January sales on laptops, although we can’t say for certain so we’d recommend acting sooner rather than later if you spot a discount to your liking.
So far, this HP 14-inch laptop for just £419 is proving to be the most popular choice on our list, however, if you’re looking for something a little cheaper (or pricier) in today’s remaining Boxing Day sales, you’ll find plenty of options still.
We’re not bad at recommending computers here at TechRadar, and we’ve found the best discounts here on crowd favourite machines such as Apple MacBooks, Dell’s, HP’s, and Acer’s right here, plus a few other recommendations picked out by our experts.
Currys, Amazon, and Dell are just some of the top retailers you’ll find rounded up here, although we’ve also got plenty from Very and Laptops Direct – lesser-known retailers that offer fantastic value too.
If you’re interested in seeing what else is on offer today, we recommend heading over to our main Boxing Day sales page, where you’ll find great deals on not just laptops, but TVs, appliances, and even clothing,
