After how many years should I buy a new laptop?

Like all technology, laptops only have a certain amount of time before they start to slow down and become difficult to use. Why does this happen? Well because after a few years the hardware in the device will start to degrade, either from prolonged exposure to heat or through general wear and tear. Plus, even if you kept your laptop in pristine condition with no spillages or droppages, the device would eventually struggle to keep up with the updated operating systems and apps.

Most laptops are expected to last between three to five years. Their lifespans are often shorter than a PC computer because of the laptop’s compact size, and charging eventually becomes an issue as the battery life reduces over time.

More like this

You’ll know it’s time to change your laptop when your battery life can’t even last your commute into the office, or when you have repeated problems with the on button, keyboard, or screen. Of course, you might just wake up one day and realise you want a shiny new model, or you may decide your old model has suffered enough jostles. Either way - that takes you onto the next stage of buying a new laptop.

How much should I pay for a laptop?

A new laptop will usually cost, on average, between £500 and £1,000 - but that doesn’t mean you can’t find good quality devices for less than that. For the best range of laptops between £150 and £500, check out our guide to the best budget laptops in stock right now.

How much you should spend on a laptop also depends on what you need to use it for. If you’re looking for a laptop for work or just everyday use (i.e. you need Microsoft apps, a good storage size and whatever else your company may use), you’ll be looking to spend more around the £500-£800 range. However, if you’re looking to buy a laptop for gaming or maybe even design, in which case you’ll need a good CPU, a graphics card and at least 8GB of RAM, you’re likely to spend more in the £700-£1,500 range.

Where to find the best laptop deals

Most Laptop companies run regular deals on their own websites, like Dell, Lenovo and HP. These are often for the slightly older models or because of specific deal seasons.

You can also find laptops on sale at more general retailers like Argos, John Lewis, and Amazon. In particular, Currys has constant laptop offers running and can also offer you specific advice on which laptop is best for your needs.
