When it comes to bagging a serious bargain, there’s really no better time than Black Friday.
The annual sales event is one of the biggest days in the shopping calendar and you’ll find everything from mattresses to TVs on offer.
While the Black Friday weekend has grown exponentially in recent years to the point where there is rarely a brand not getting involved, it’s really the tech deals that you need on your radar - specifically laptops and all things computing.
In that vein, you’re in luck as we spend hours upon hours trolling the internet to find the very best discounts so that you don’t have to.
Over the last couple of years - since the onset of the pandemic - our laptops have emerged as the most crucial bit of kit in our arsenal. Even with the return to office life, they have not been devalued. In fact, it’s more important than ever to have a model that will become a sidekick as you flit between working from home and your company’s HQ. So take the opportunity of the sales extravaganza to upgrade your current model.
When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year?
Black Friday in 2021 will take place on November 26. This is the official start day of the event, which falls the day after Thanksgiving over in the US. The American-import has taken a life of its own in recent years so you can expect deals as early as the beginning of November.
Cyber Monday is then the following Monday (as the name suggests) which will be on November 29. This was traditionally reserved for the best tech deals but you are now likely to see epic discounts throughout the weekend as stocks last.
What laptop deals can I expect?
If last year was anything to go by, there is barely a computing brand in existence that isn’t offering some sort of reduction on its ranges.
Whether you are using your laptop or PC to work, stream, study or game, there’s a state-of-the-art device to suit, with the processor to match. If you’re fixed at your desk and don’t mind a heavier device, or travel for business and need something lightweight - it’s likely to be on sale this Black Friday. There’s also an extensive selection of iPads and tablets.
Big screen, small screen, crystal-clear imagery or powerful sound, you will be able to find it.
Brands include Apple, Microsoft, ASUS, Lenovo, HP and many more.
