The best laptop deals in 2019

Laptop deals: Quick linksOne of the most essential – yet expensive – items you need is a laptop, so a discount or a special offer can help no end. That’s why we’ve updated this list of the best cheap laptop deals for creatives to bring you the latest deals. Having the right laptop for you can make the difference between pain-free, powerful processing and a sluggish machine that takes an eon to upload your images. An easy to use touchpad will help you create eye-catching illustrations, while a dazzling display will show off your creations in their full glory.We also dispel the myth that a cheap laptop is a synonym for a bad laptop: as well as the very best laptop deals on the market now, we’ve highlighted competent computers that you can buy on a budget all year round on the next page.A disclaimer before we start: the list of laptop deals below may contain some Chromebooks (laptops that have no software besides Chrome, relying instead on the G Suite of apps and browser-based tools). We know that Chromebooks will be no good for graphic designers needing Photoshop or 3D artists needing to render models, but they have their place as a cheap second machine for composing emails, invoicing and other less intensive tasks.Laptop deals on Black Friday : What you need to knowThis year’s major holiday shopping event is looming large: Black Friday 2019 takes place on 29 November, with Cyber Monday following on 1 December. You might be wondering if it’s worth holding off buying your laptop in the hopes of snapping up a festive bargain. Our advice? Well, first, check out our guides to the best Black Friday deals  (or if you have your heart set on an Apple machine, the best Black Friday MacBook deals) for an idea of the kind of offers to expect over this year’s event.Next, bear in mind that we typically see Black Friday offers on older and mid- to low-end laptops, so if you’re after the latest, greatest laptop, it might not be worth waiting. Similarly, if you’re after something specific and see a good price now, pick it up while it’s on sale – there’s no saying if Black Friday will yield a cheaper price, or you’ll be able to get the specs you want. Finally, we’re seeing less of a concentration of deals over Black Friday and Cyber Monday themselves, with retailers offering early deals and introducing longer sales periods each year.
