The best laptops and smartphones in January

Black Friday sales in the UK are now used as a very reasonable guide to when we should see laptops below a certain price.

If it’s not always been the case, you should add £3 off the sale price for every day it’s been since then.

Sometime in January and February, though, the laptops become a lot more competitive, with most of the best discounts timed to before the money-saving event.
