Rather than waffle on, let’s just get into it. These are the best May Day Bank Holiday sales and deals available right now. Now less than £300, this Asus VivoBook 15 is a steal when considering what it gets you. With a 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) display, 11th Gen Intel Core i3-1115G4 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, this laptop is a decent workhorse with enough performance to tackle workloads and some light entertainment — exactly what you need from a bargain laptop.
Here are the finest Bank Holiday deals currently available. The Bank Holiday is approaching, and we’ve rounded up the best laptop, headphones, and gaming offers worth your money. Our crew at Laptop Mag is split between the United States and the United Kingdom, and we love to laugh at our American colleagues’ jealously whenever a Bank Holiday arrives. However, aside from the customary long weekend drinks, the savings are especially opulent at this time. Given that the May Day Bank Holiday falls on a workday weekend, you can bet the discounts will be bigger and better than ever. In fact, many of these merchants are using this weekend as a sort of Amazon Prime Day trial run, as they test the waters with some really competitive offers.
Amazon currently takes £144 off the 512GB model MacBook Pro 14. It features a 14.2-inch mini-LED backlit display and delivers up to 14 hours of battery life. The laptop is powered by Apple’s M1 Pro 8-core chip coupled with 16GB of RAM and employs a 14-core GPU for graphics. In our M1 MacBook Pro 14 review, its elegant design, excellent performance, and stellar battery life earned it a 4 out of 5 star rating. It’s the Editor’s Choice best laptop for power-users. This Bank Holiday deal knocks £80 off the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 3 Chromebook. This convertible Chromebook has an 11-inch HD (1366 x 768) display, MediaTek MT8183 8-core CPU, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMC storage.
On the surface of it, differences are minimal between this MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air. But thanks to an impeccable thermal management system, this machine is capable of so much more, as you can read in our MacBook Pro M1 review. With the addition of a fan, the Pro can handle processor-intensive tasks on a more sustained basis than the Air, and the bigger chassis gives this a far better battery performance. Now £300 off, this is the cheapest RTX 3070 gaming laptop we’ve ever seen. It packs a 15.6-inch (1920 x 1080) 144Hz display, Intel Core i7-11800H CPU, 16GB RAM and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3070 GPU with 8GB of graphics memory. For storage and transferring files, there’s a speedy 512GB SSD onboard.
