If you want a big list of all the best laptop deals on Black Friday, we have a comprehensive guide, but this live blog will be used to surface some truly exciting laptop deals as I find them.

I'll also go into depth about what makes these laptop deals so good.

Let's start with the very cheapest laptop you can buy in the UK on Black Friday (that's actually worth buying: the Asus C204MA Chromebook, which is just £119.99 at Amazon.

This is a brilliant little laptop for kids and students, or anyone who wants a second laptop without spending a fortune. It's not powerful, but it runs Chrome OS well (the operating system, which is based on Google's Chrome web browser).

For day to day tasks, like browsing the web or typing up documents (such as home work), then you're not going to find a better laptop at this ultra-low price.

Want a cheap Windows 11 laptop in the UK for Black Friday? Of course you do! In my book, this is the best value Windows 11 laptop on sale: the Acer Aspire 3, which is £349 at Currys.

While the CPU isn't that great, it's a 10th gen Intel Core i3, it's not awful for this price, and the 256GB SSD is a bit on the small side. However, it comes with 8GB of RAM, which I think is the minimum you want to run Windows 11 smoothly. Many cheap Windows 11 laptop deals on Black Friday come with 4GB of RAM, so keep an eye out for that, as it'll lead to a slow and annoying laptop that will make you feel you've wasted your money, even if you haven't spent much.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s
