Get the best Black Friday 2016 laptop deals below. This list will be updated throughout the sales period, so be sure to check back often if you’re aiming to grab a shiny new computer before the end of the year.

Laptops have come a long way in the past five years, becoming a commonplace carry-all computer for work and entertainment. They’re more powerful and durable than most tablets, with pretty much all the functionality of your PC tower. If you’re like us, you’ll find yourself getting through a good quality laptop every couple of years, especially now prices have made even the best laptops affordable.

As a reminder, Black Friday takes place this year on November 25, 2016. But retailers will kick off their advertising and sales well before that, and deals will carry through to Monday November 28, at least.

Which laptop should I buy?

We reckon there are three types of laptop for you. A laptop for general entertainment, whether music, games, movies and browsing the web. Then there’s the work laptop, primarily for your day job with a bit of entertainment on the side. And then there’s the gaming laptop, dedicated to high-end PC games.

If you’re looking for a games or entertainment laptop you’ll want one with dual core of quad core processors, a separate graphics card and screen of at least 15 inches, preferably more. And a blu-ray drive if you still believe in physical media.

If you’re looking for a work machine, you should prioritise a good long battery life, 4GB of RAM, and above all something slim and easy to carry around for the entire day. And double check that battery life with as many reviews and sources as you can.
