Why this cheap laptop deal is the BEST of Black Friday

You can pick up a highly portable Windows 11 laptop from HP with 20GB of free 4G data for just £250 this Black Friday

Cheap laptop deals are like gold dust during the lead-up to Black Friday, with price cuts taking what were previously affordable options into bargain basement territory.

Falling into the latter category is this cheap laptop deal on the HP 14-eg0001na, which runs Windows 11. HP has knocked £200 off its normal asking price of £450, meaning you can now pick one up for just £250 – £100 cheaper than you’ll find it elsewhere.

It’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c (Gen 2) chip, and comes with 4GB RAM, 128GB eMMC storage and integrated graphics courtesy of Qualcomm’s Adreno 618 GPU. That combination isn’t going to deliver barnstorming power or performance but is enough to ensure you’re able to complete everyday tasks with minimal fuss.

And everyday tasks are exactly what this laptop is designed for. It’s one of HP’s thinnest laptops and weighs just 1.25kg, so is eminently portable and ideal for those needing to reply to emails, access documents and send Slack messages while on the move. Its on-the-go credentials are strengthened by 4G compatibility, and HP has thrown in 20GB of EE mobile data as part of the package.

In addition to wireless and 4G connectivity, there’s support for Bluetooth, and physical connection options in the form of a single USB-C port and a pair of USB-A ports. There’s also a multiformat SD card reader, a headphone/microphone port and a nano-SIM expansion slot, which is a pretty impressive list for such a compact and affordable laptop.

Other neat features see a lift-hinge incorporated into the design to allow you to elevate the keyboard, which makes typing easier in all manner of situations, while the enlarged touchpad is particularly useful when you’re not using a wireless mouse.

The 14in Full HD (1,980 x 1,800) display has micro-edges along three of its sides, helping it achieve a screen-to-body ratio of over 83%, while peak brightness is stated at 250 nits, which is bright enough for most working conditions. Add to that the built-in 720p webcam, fingerprint reader and dual speakers, and the HP 14-eg0001na is an extremely appealing option at its new Black Friday price.
