Which retailers had sales last year and what were the savings?

Out of the retailers who stock laptop computers, here are some that had a great Boxing Day deal:

  • Harvey Norman
  • Catch of the Day
  • JB Hi-Fi
  • The Good Guys
  • Lenovo
  • Grays Online
  • Microsoft Store

Savings varied greatly between different retailers. Retailers like Catch of the Day already have heavily discounted prices on laptops and desktop computers, so customers typically saved between $20-$100. On the other hand, stores like Harvey Norman, whose prices sit much closer to the recommended retail price, offered significant savings.

Here are a few of the discounts and sales from previous years.

  • Microsoft store: Up to $110 off Surface Pro 3 devices.
  • Lenovo: Up to $1200 off ThinkPad tablets, laptops, ThinkCentre desktops, ThinkStation workstations and ThinkServer services.
  • Harvey Norman: Up to 50% off – Apple MacBook Pro 13″ 2.5GHz i5 for $1188, was $1349.

Which laptops and computers will be be on sale?

This year, we’ve also seen hybrid laptop-tablet devices become more and more popular. This suggests that we can expect to see some really competitive bundle deals.

In an effort to compete with devices like the Surface, which comes with the detachable keyboard, there is a strong likelihood that devices like the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the Apple iPad will throw in accessories at a lowered price.


Why buy a laptop online? Is it worth buying a laptop in the Boxing Day sales?

You’re rarely going to find cheaper prices on computers than during the Boxing Day sales, so now is definitely the time to buy and you probably should buy it online. Purchasing a laptop online is beneficial for many reasons, and not just for avoiding the queues and the nightmare car parks.

Generally, online stores are stocked through a large central warehouse. Bricks and mortar stores only have a small stock room plus what’s on the floor. This means that if you choose to shop online, it’s far less likely that the item you want will sell out. On sale days, especially Boxing Day, many products sell out in stores after only a few hours.

Shopping online allows you to very easily compare products too. You can open windows for the Microsoft Store, JB Hi-Fi and Lenovo all at once and directly compare prices and specifications. This is a lot harder to do if you’re going to physical stores, and it’s much more time-consuming.

One reason you should consider shopping in store is if you need very specific consumer advice from a product expert. For example, if there is a question you have that only Apple staff will be able to answer, then perhaps it’s best for you to visit the physical store.
