The apocalyptic rubble of Black Friday has cleared, Cyber Monday has come and gone, and with Christmas looming ever nearer you’re doubtless wondering where the next tech bargain is coming from.
Well wonder no more - ranging from the super affordable to the plain super, and proving Apple isn't the only firm to have their hardware bear fruit of late, ShortList has whittled down the 10 very best laptops available to buy for under £650.
From the way some tech bloggers go on about the rise of tablets, you might assume over-the-counter prescriptions for portable computers can’t be too far away, but laptops aren't going anywhere. They're evolving,taking the best of the tablet and morphing it into something special. As for other, more specialist types (web-friendly Chromebooks, portable gaming PCs), well, there's plenty going on with those too. And it needn't cost you the earth.
