10 great offers in the UK for TVs, laptops and gaming equipment
Best of the week Technology offers in the UK will keep you busy in front of the screen. Hisense and LG have great deals on TV, while Lenovo, Apple and Asus are serving some tempting cuts to PCs. For all the details about this and a few more offers, read below.
If you are looking for a cheap and cheerful, yet capable TV that stands above brands owned by vendors such as JVC, but represents good value compared to big brands such as LG and Samsung, Hisense has long been an attractive choice. This 58-inch 4K model comes with built-in Alexa to accommodate a sofa-bound couch and Freeview Play to check out your favorite apps and classic British channels.
While Hisense is currently the best option in the TV world, choosing LG was an easy choice for those considering a high-quality screen. Priced below £ 1,200, this 2021 model offers sharp and colorful OLED technology. The black colors aren’t as deep as on LG’s top-class OLED panels, but they’re better than most anything else. The details and colors it offers are usually magnificent. You also get Vision IQ and Dolby Atmos, as well as support for Google Assistant and Alexa.
LG also deals with lower TVs. The discount here is not great, but it is a welcome piece at these lower prices. This 4K LED HDR panel comes with Google and Alexa smart devices, as well as LG’s fast webOS and Smartmaker smart mode.
JVC is a really easy option for your TV, with simple Full HD resolution and LED screen technology. This is a model that could sit nicely in the bedroom or similar and not in the center of the living room. Despite the low price, you still get access to the applications you expect through the Amazon Fire TV operating system of this TV with Alexa support enabled via the remote control.
Offer laptops and tablets
Gaming laptops are increasingly becoming universal machines. Made for killing zombies, Zoom calls and video editing. And that can certainly lead to some high prices. Although this Lenovo Legion 5 is capable in all these areas, it is much more of a dedicated gaming device – keeping the price more reasonable. For less than £ 900, you get an impressive AMD Ryzen 7 chip, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 mid-range graphics card and a decent 512GB SSD.
Discounts on Apple products are rare, especially when buying directly. Fortunately, discounts can be found elsewhere. Just about £ 15 off the biggest and most powerful iPad you can buy won’t delight anyone, but it’s still cheaper than many retailers. The main upgrades for this latest model are the addition of the Liquid Retina XDR (Mini LED) display and Apple’s fast but efficient M1 chip.
This Asus Chromebook does not come with a ton of power or storage space, but ChromeOS is far from demanding and performing web-based tasks is the norm on this operating system. If you want a cheap device for searching the Internet, writing essays and watching TV shows – a 360 hinge makes this comfortable too – then Asus makes some of the best options at this price.
Offer wireless headphones and peripherals
Although Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Live has been on Amazon for £ 79 for a while now, a handy £ 20 voucher is now available — just check the box on the product page before adding it to your cart. These low-cost Samsung headphones offer active noise cancellation, up to 21 hours of battery life and a unique grain-like design.
As with the iPad and other Apple products, don’t expect big sales directly from the brand. Still, you can buy the £ 50 latest version of AirPods Pro here. It’s not exactly a new model, and the headphones themselves remain the same, but now you can put them on a MagSafe charger to give them a boost when needed.
The PS5 is great and all, but its memory is definitely not great. With only 825 gigabytes, more space is needed for games. Fortunately, Sony has recently added support for additional SSD memory, so you only need to choose one. Like most SSDs, these can be expensive — especially at the speeds required for the PS5 — so any discount is welcome.
