The best Black Friday laptop deals available right now
1. Razer Blade Stealth 13, i7-8565U (was £1,235, now £799)
The super-sleek Razer Blade Stealth 13 base model is now only £799 at eBuyer – that’s a whopping £435 off from its RRP of £1,235. You’ll have to be quick on this one: Amazon featured the same deal in its Black Friday sale, but it’s already out of stock. This model of the ultraportable Stealth 13, powered by an Intel Core i7-8565U CPU backed by 8GB RAM, may not be as useful for gaming as the graphics model we reviewed but it’s still a gorgeous laptop that’s great for working on the move. It’s also never been this cheap. Could there be a better way to start the festive season?

While it may have been superseded by the excellent Surface Laptop 3, the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 remains a fantastic, lightweight notebook. In fact, it won ‘Best Laptop’ in our 2019 product awards. Now that’s it on sale for only £899 from Amazon, there’s never been a better time to pick one up. That’s a £350 reduction from its RRP of £1,250 and just over £230 off its average price over the past 12-months. The Cobalt Blue model has sold out but this Burgundy Red model with an Intel Core i5-8250U and 8GB RAM is still in stock. Read our review of the Surface Laptop 2 if you need to know more.
3. Dell XPS 13 (2019), i5-8265U (was £1,250, now £1,020)
When we reviewed the latest Dell XPS 13 i7-8565U model, we thought it was practically perfect. This Dell XPS 13 (2019), on sale now at Very for just £1,020, has an i5-8265U, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD. That’s £230 off its typical price tag of £1,250. The pros and the cons will be much the same as the high-end model but at this price, its lack of varied connectivity can surely be overlooked. If you’re after a stylish and powerful laptop, the Dell XPS 13 is as desirable as they come.

4. Microsoft Surface Pro 7, i3-100G51 (was £799, now £699) plus FREE Surface Pro Type Cover worth £125
Black Friday bargain bundles don’t get much better than this! The all-new Surface Pro 7, currently our favourite Windows hybrid, is now reduced by £225 at Microsoft. All of the Surface Pro 7 models are actually reduced right now but the cheapest way to buy one is to select the Core i3-100G51 spec and add a Surface Pro Type Cover, which together cost £699 for Black Friday. Ordinarily, the base spec Surface Pro 7 costs £799, and the keyboard attachment is £125.

After a monster gaming machine but don’t want to pay full whack? Look no further than this Asus ROG Strix Scar III with an Intel Core i7-9750H, 16GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 graphics and a humungous 1TB PCIe SSD. Reduced by £200 down to £1,999, it’s a fantastic bargain and absolutely ideal for aspiring esports pros as well as casual gamers thanks to its graphics abilities and 144Hz FHD display. We reviewed a higher-spec Scar III with a Core i9 and 32GB RAM (but the same hefty RTX 2070 GPU) and couldn’t recommend it more highly.
6. Dell XPS 15 (2019), i7-9750H, GTX 1650 (was £1,999, now £1,700 with code ‘BLACK15’)
The Dell XPS 15 was our favourite flagship Windows laptop in 2018 and its sequel, the top-spec Dell XPS 15 (2019), improves on that model in every way. With a stunning 15.6in 4K OLED display, a potent Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650, it’s a true all-around powerhouse. Using checkout code ‘BLACK15’ at Dell, you can nab it for only £1,700, down £299 from £1,999.

It’s a fantastic year for Black Friday Microsoft discounts, as the Surface Book 2 is also on sale right now at Amazon for only £1,899 – that’s £600 off the RRP and £350 off its average price over the previous two years. Packing an i7-8650U and Nvidia GeForce 1050 graphics, it’s a punchy machine that can handle any task you throw at it, including graphics-intensive applications for video and photo editing work. In our review of the detachable Surface Book 2 we said it was “incredibly versatile and powerful”, especially considering its size and weight. Our only real complaint was the price, but with this deal, you won’t hear any complaints from us!
