If you’re on the lookout for a new laptop, November is arguably the best time of year to buy one.
Why? Because it’s Black Friday season, with many retailers launching huge sales events weeks ahead of the big day – 25 November this year.

We’ve searched across all the big US and UK retailers to bring you discounts on laptops that are genuinely worth it. It’s possible the prices here will drop even further before Black Friday, but many retailers guarantee that won’t be the case.
While we can recommend all the deals in this article, it might be worth having an idea of the kind of device you’d like to buy beforehand. To help you with that, each of our best laptop guides includes a top 10 and buying advice.
