Both are great performers, but if you need to complete demanding tasks like editing 4K video and rendering 3D scenes, then you'll probably want to go for the Pro series.

If you're looking to get your game on, nothing beats Windows PCs, you get the biggest game library, the best graphical fidelity and the widest range of controller support. Gaming laptops allow you to take this experience on the go, too, so you can continue your winning streak while you're off on your jollies.

There are a huge number of options to choose from, but you'll want to ensure you pick a model with a good graphics card for the best in-game visuals. It's worth thinking about portability, too. Some gaming laptops can get pretty big and heavy, which might not be ideal if you need to carry them regularly.

How we chose these laptop deals

When picking out the best laptop and MacBook deals, we carefully consider our choices. We ensure that only tried and tested products from top manufacturers make it onto our list, you won't find any no-name brands here, just quality machines from the best in the business.

We also consider the specification, as while many of the laptop discounts are on last-generation models, we don't include anything that can't keep up with modern requirements. Of course, we check out the historical pricing, too, so everything included on this page is a genuine discount, not a sale badge applied to a full-price product.
