There truly is no better time to invest in new tech, or upgrade old devices, than during the deals of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. The annual sales event not only marks the start of the holiday shopping season, but it launches some of the biggest and best tech deals of the year and thanks to tech's modest life cycles, Cyber Monday deals tend to be dominated by everything electronic. Our favourite brands are forever developing the next best innovation, forever outdating older gadgets as a consequence, and forever looking for ways to shift last gen stock to make room for new releases.
Despite many retailers releasing great deals earlier last week for Black Friday, there are still discounts to be had today. To help you navigate the very best Cyber Monday tech deals from UK retailers, we've searched high and low to find you 2020's top offers.
