Hi i'm new to the UK, could someone let me know if laptops typically see a signficant decrease after christmas? How about January-Feburary as well?

Thank you!

    There are deals throughout the year, there is no pattern as such. If you see something you like at a great price, just buy it. And if you are from the US (purely a guess since you quoted a $ price), be ready to be surprised with the prices when a hot deal in UK is barely a deal in the US.

    and welcome to the UK and all the "delights" of above

    If you're willing to wait until January then yes, there will be decrease in prices.

    Hey thanks! Do you have any idea of how much prices may drop by? Say for example a $700-800 laptop

    They usually have post Xmas sales so should wait.
    Can check historic prices on camelcamelcamel from Amazon though I understand that isn't working as well these days.

    Items are now reduced all year round on and off. January sales/black Friday etc etc is all a con. (edited)

    after christmas and new year sales aren't really great in this modern age of online shopping. if i wanted a laptop, i just keep an eye on hukd at least 3 months before i actually need a laptop, and you can pretty much bet there will be something flagged up within 3 months

    Next and other clothe shops have a decent sale on boxing day. Even boots gifts. But with electronics.. If you need it anyway then you've got some discount otherwise it's not really a steal.

    Boxing Day and New Year used to be much bigger, pre-Internet. In those days there was usually a story on Christmas Day TV news about people camping outside Harrods waiting for the Boxing Day sale. They were usually trying to buy fur coats. How times change!

    Christmas/Boxing Day sales will start as soon as the physical brick stores close on Christmas Eve, probably around 6/7pm. (edited)
