Scroll down for an up-to-date list of all the best Black Friday deals on laptops.
Black Friday 2015 is finally here, celebrating its fifth year in the UK. To avoid the store stampedes and website crashes that plagued 2014, retailers have taken measures to ensure it does not happen again. Currys PC World, Argos, Tesco, Amazon and eBay have, while Asda has even gone as far as to cancel Black Friday altogether.
Despite all the painstaking preparation, marketing analysts are warning shoppers could still be derailed in their quest for bargains. Daniel Todaro, managing director of field marketing specialist Gekko, said: "While it seems that Black Friday has had a surprisingly calm kick-off compared to last year's chaos, with big retailers like Argos and Tesco already experiencing website difficulties due to high customer demand, it's possible that pressure on the high street will climb as the day proceeds.
"The potential risk of sites crashing on the most important shopping day of the year is likely to damage brand equity with shoppers. To avoid wasting time online, it's likely that bargain hunters will resort to the convenience of heading in-store. It's therefore crucial that in-store promoters and brand ambassadors are available to confidently assist customers as soon as they step through the shop doors, to minimise customer stress and to drive sales."
Laptops are among the most popular items for shoppers, with deals this year on Dell, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, Acer and Apple MacBooks from all the major retailers (except Asda, of course).
