The very best tech deals in the ‘last minute’ Christmas sales

A very strange Christmas is closing in – we know, right – and, even though Black Friday is in the rearview mirror, the pre-December 25 deals are rolling on. The WIRED Gear team has scoured Amazon, John Lewis, Currys and more for the very best tech deals you can buy. Not all deals you’ll see advertised are in fact ‘deals’, with many priced well higher than Black Friday and so we’ve nabbed the offers that give you a real saving in time for Christmas.
As well as finding these high quality, cut-price tech products, you can find more gift guidance in the form of our full-fat guide to Christmas gift ideas for 2020 or, for those at a pinch for some last-minute stocking fillers, we’ve got a list of clever Christmas gifts under £25.


£25 off Razer Viper Ultimate, now £75: The Viper Ultimate sits pride of place at the top of our WIRED Recommends best gaming mouse ranking, offering a stylish design, a lightweight and an impressively high sensitivity level.
£170 off Lenovo IdeaPad 3i, now £529: This higher powered variant of one of our WIRED Recommends budget laptops is not to be sniffed at, especially with this handy discount. £529 gets you an Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD, a particularly great combo for students.
£107 off Apple MacBook Pro (M1), now £1,192: The new M1 MacBooks have only recently been released but have seen Apple’s machines get a new lease of life, providing fast performance while taking in less power. This offer is a rare early discount on the new and exciting product.


£13 off PDP Little Wireless Controller for Nintendo Switch, now £33: PDP is a prolific maker of delightful Switch accessories and this controller is no different. The controller offers a more retro vibe for those who want an experience with clicker buttons and a more secure grip.
Sony HT-G700 with Skullcandy Indy earbuds bundle, now £299: Currys is offering this sweet combination of three products, all still at the lowest price you can find the soundbar. Along with the soundbar, you’ll get a wireless subwoofer for enhancing your audio experience as well as the handy Skullcandy Indy wireless earbuds for when you’re on-the-go.


£30 off Sony PSHX500, now £269: Got some records lying around with nothing to play them on? Or, just fancy trading in your old analogue record player? Sony has a USB-flavoured solution for you. This USB turntable allows you to play and convert your old records into DSD Hi-Res Audio.
£20 off Ultimate Ears Boom 2 Lite, now £50: If you’re after a durable speaker that offers quality audio out and about, Ultimate Ears is often the brand to go too. The Boom 2 Lite is available now for under £50 and weighs in at just 0.54kg, all while offering up to 15 hours of battery life.
£20 off OnePlus Nord, now £419: OnePlus nailed its return to the mid-range market with its first phone in the new Nord range. For just over £400, you’ll get swift performance, a stellar 90Hz display and a gorgeous design well beyond its price.

£20 off iPhone 11, now £579: Looking to pick up an iPhone 11 ahead of this Christmas? This is the cheapest price you’ll currently find. You’ll have to be a fan of the Yellow model to get this discounted rate but, if it’s your thing, it’s a good deal on an impressive product.
£70 off Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, now £549: Woe betide anyone who buys an Android tablet has been a popular cry over recent years but Samsung has continued to put out the best you can buy. The Galaxy Tab S7 is their best yet, with a glorious near edge-to-edge QHD+ display and the faster than ever S Pen bundled in.
