The latest laptop and tablet deals
HP 14-bp151sa – save £200
If you’re shopping for an affordable laptop, you may have your eyes on this HP model. Currys is knocking £200 off its usual price tag, so you’ll get Windows 10, 8GB of Ram and 128GB of internal storage at a discount.
This machine runs on an Intel Core i5 processor. It should cope with basic tasks such as web browsing, but you may want to consider a more capable i7 laptop if you do lots of picture and video editing. The HP 14-bp151sa has a 14-inch screen.
We’ve tested the newer version of this model in our test lab. Before you part with your money, check our full HP Notebook 14-bp071na review to see if it’s a Best Buy.
Asus C302CA – save £100
This 2-in-1 convertible Chromebook has a foldable 12.5-inch display, which means it can transform from a traditional laptop into a portable tablet. A tidy £100 saving means this Chromebook is now £499 at AO.com.
Unlike regular laptops, Chromebooks are designed to be primarily used while connected to the internet. They run on Google’s Chrome OS instead of Windows or Apple’s OS X.
Chromebooks aren’t as multi-skilled as traditional laptops, but a stripped-down operating system means that battery life can be fantastic. Asus claims you’ll get up to 10 hours from this model.
Only laptops with speedy processors and all-day battery life leave our test lab with a Best Buy sticker. To see if our experts recommend this device, head over to our Asus Chromebook C302ca review.
Lenovo Ideapad 320s – save £170
Time is running out if you want to grab this Lenovo laptop for £380. There are a couple of configurations to choose from, but the model listed on Currys has an Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of Ram and 128GB of storage.
This 14-inch laptop may be on your radar if you want a reasonably capable laptop that won’t break the bank. It runs on Windows 10 and comes with two Harman speakers with Dolby Audio – good news if you enjoy watching Netflix shows on your laptop.
We’ve run the Ideapad through our rigorous lab tests, paying close attention to its built-in features, as well as ease of use and battery life. See how it scores in our Lenovo Ideapad 320s review.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 – save £70
If you’re committed to Android but don’t have the budget for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, the slightly older S2 is a solid alternative. It has a 9.7-inch screen, weighs less than 400g and has a built-in fingerprint sensor for added security.
The headline feature is the 2,048 x 1,536 resolution Super AMOLED screen, which serves up vibrant colours whether you’re playing games or flicking through your pictures.
Speaking of pictures, the Tab S2 comes with expandable storage, so you can add up to 128GB of additional storage space.
Does this Samsung tablet hold its own against the Apple iPad range? You’ll have to read our full Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 review to find out.
Asus C101 – save £100
For a limited time, this budget-priced Asus Chromebook is just £200. It’s powered by 4GB of Ram and has a 10-inch screen.
With it having just 16GB of internal storage, though, you may have to rely on cloud services to store your photos.
You can tilt the screen of the Asus C101 backwards so that it lies flat against the body of the Chromebook. That effectively turns it into a mini Asus tablet, which could come in handy if you’re used to reading the headlines on your morning commute. This Asus powers up in just five seconds.
At £200 the Asus C101 is a tempting 2-in-1, but can you do better? Read our Asus C101 review to see if this model is a proven Best Buy.
Apple iPad – save £40
The 9.7-inch Apple iPad is now on sale for under £300. It runs on the iOS 11 operating system and Apple’s A9 processor, so you’ll be able to run lots of apps at once without much trouble at all.
This iPad is slightly heavier than the iPad Air 2 (it weighs 460g) but is still comfortable to hold in one hand. There are also two cameras: a rear 8Mp camera and a front-facing 1.2Mp camera for video calls.
How long does the iPad last on a single charge? See the results of our battery test in our Apple iPad 9.7 review.
