5 of the Best Laptops for Under £1000

Laptops are something that we all need truth be told but we won’t all want to shell out a small fortune on one, particularly if you’re not a gamer in need of ridiculously high specifications. With this in mind, it is reassuring to find that there are an awful lot of first rate laptops which can be picked up for under £1000 and will deliver all the requirements and performance needs you have for day to day use.

Regardless of what you’re planning to use your laptop for, you should be able to pick one up for under £1000 that does most, if not all, of what you’re after and we’ve picked our choices of the best ones available for this price point below:

Dell XPS 13


Dell were once the mainstay of the laptop and desktop market but have had to succumb to the inexorable rise of the Apple behemoth but that doesn’t mean to say that they don’t still produce top class machines and, so far as laptops under £1000 are concerned, you’ll be hard pressed to find many more capable than the Dell XPS 13. There are impressive features jumping off the page all over the place with the XPS 13 from Dell but the ones that are probably the biggest standouts for a laptop of this price are a nigh-on borderless infinity display, Intel Core i5 – i7 CPU, powerful processor with a great battery life. If you had to pick one laptop under £500, this would probably be it.

Price: £899
