The best laptop deals this January

1. M1 Apple MacBook Pro (was £1,499, now £1,345)

Last year's MacBook Pro is a powerful machine that incorporated the new Apple M1 chip to staggering effect. The model on offer here has 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal SSD storage – which is more than enough for regular users – plus a 13in retina display and a new-and-improved battery. It has been cheaper, but this is still an excellent price on a gorgeous laptop.

3. Huawei MateBook D 15 2021 (was £750, now £590)

4. Honor MagicBook 14 (2021) (was £800, now £550)

The 2021 Honor MagicBook 14 didn't quite reach the heights that the 2020 model did in terms of value but with this discount applied it comes really close. Like all Honor laptops, it's well made, comfortable to use and, with an 11th gen Core i5 CPU Intel onboard, a decent performer as well.
