Laptops: Black Friday deals
The tech industry is expecting us to spend big on Black Friday this year - according to analyst firm Context, 77,000 laptops have been imported in preparation, far more than in previous years.
Many of these machines are being discounted to under £200, making them ideal for Christmas presents.
Tesco, for example, is offering an Acer laptop with 15.6-inch screen and 1TB hard disk drive for just £179, £100 off the normal price.
Meanwhile, Sainsbury's has the HP 14-inch Jack Black Celeron notebook, with 32GB of RAM and Windows 10 and McAfee LiveSafe security included, down from £280 to £150.
But there are some great bargains to be had on higher-end machines too. One of Currys' best deals, for example, is the Toshiba Satellite P50-C-18K, a 15.6-inch laptop for just £700 - a £200 reduction. It's based on one of Intel's new Skylake Core i5 processors and comes with 16GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce 930M graphics chip, a Full HD screen and a 256GB SSD.
Slightly less high-spec, but still impressive, is Currys' offer of an HP 15-ac151sa 15.6-inch laptop, which comes with 2TB of storage and 8GB memory: it was £549.99 and is now £349.%VIRTUAL-ArticleSidebar-money-saving%
