Hankering for a tech bargain? Well, you’re in luck because souq.com‘s annual White Friday sale is currently underway and it’s the perfect time to snap up some new gadgets for a fraction of their normal cost.

We’ve scoured the region’s largest e-commerce site to bring you our picks for what you should be spending your hard earned cash on if you’re looking for a good deal.

Best laptop deal – 13in Apple MacBook Pro w/ touch bar (AED5,649)

Whether or not you’re a fan of the OLED touch bar that Apple has added to its high-end MacBooks, you have to admit that it’s a pretty neat innovation. You can now snap up a 13in Space Gray Intel Core i5-2.9Ghz model, specced out with a 256GB hard drive and 8GB of RAM for AED1,550 off its regular price. If you’ve been waiting to pounce, now’s the time to do so as this machine won’t get much cheaper than this.

Best TV deal – LG 55B7V (AED5,199)

Ready to make the jump to 4K? For a massive AED4,800 off its normal price, this 55in OLED stunner from LG is just the ticket. Not only will it playback TV and films at blistering Ultra High Definition, but it also supports HDR so you can really up your pixel power.

Best smartphone deal – Samsung Galaxy S8 (AED1,999)

Samsung’s flagship blower maybe more than half a year old but for our money it’s still the best smartphone money can buy. Especially when you can pick it up for a while AED800 lower than in the shops. This Midnight Black 64GB version is the quintessential bezel-less handset of 2017 and is a bargain at this price.

Best gaming deal – Nintendo Switch (AED1,199)

Nintendo have knocked it out of the park this time with the Switch, allowing you to take your Mario, Zelda and now even Skyrim with you on-the-go or hooked up to the big screen. If you’ve slept on picking up the secret best gaming console of 2017 then you can now nab one for AED300 off retail.

Best camera deal – GoPro Hero6 Black (AED1,599)

GoPro’s newest action cam hasn’t been out for even a month so we were surprised to see it get a price drop. Lucky us then, because snapping up this 4K recorder for a AED300 discount is a no-brainer for those looking for an action cam upgrade.

Best headphones deal – Bose QuietComfort 35 II (AED1,199)

We loved the original QC 35’s thanks to their class-leading noise cancellation and stellar sound. This mid-year refresh brings the same smart tech with the addition of Google Assistant built right in, perfect for the Android fanatics – and at AED300 off.
