Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2017: Best cheap laptop, Macbook and Chromebook deals – The Independent
Laptops are a versatile gift. Whether it’s for work or play, they’re suitable for all ages.
And with Christmas looming, finding a Black Friday deal on the laptop can leave more money for stocking fillers – or a little extra in your back pocket.
Luckily, there are likely to be a significant amount of them.
Chromebooks could drop as low as £100, bargain basement laptops could hit £150, while known brands could go for as little as £250.
How do you bag a deal? It’s all about knowing where to look. Big box retailers like PC World could be one option, while online-only retailers like Amazon are another.
Specific deals will drop closer to the time, but for now we’ve rounded up some of the best bargains around for if you just can’t wait to get your hands on one.
