Of all the Cyber Monday deals that are on today, I never expected that the three best items on my desk right now would all be discounted at the same time.
I'm always testing at least one laptop, one monitor and several accessories at the same time, and right now I've got an ASUS Vivobook S 15 OLED (the fashion-brand-designed BAPE Edition), a 34-inch curved QHD gaming monitor from Philips Evnia and a UGREEN Nexode 300W GaN charging dock lined and linked up in front of me.
And they've all got Cyber Monday deals on right now (well, almost. The ASUS on offer is not the exact BAPE Edition, though, but it's almost identical on the inside, which is what really matters.
We're covering lots of other Cyber Monday deals too, make sure to check them out.
The 3 best Cyber Monday deals on things I currently love having on my desk:
UGREEN Nexode 300W GaN charging dock:
$269.99 $199.99 on UGREEN US
Save $70: This is possibly my favourite desk accessory at the moment; it can charge up to five devices at once, and that includes up to three laptops, with a combined maximum output of 300W. So I can juice my laptop up, while giving my phone a fast charge before dashing out, and charge my iPad, and have two ports to spare on this dinky little miracle worker.
Philips Evnia 34" QD OLED 175Hz Curved Gaming Monitor:
£1,149.99 £885.98 at Amazon UK
Save £264.01: I've got this gorgeous monitor on my desk at the moment; it's my favourite curved monitor yet, is wonderfully enveloping and responsive when gaming (Starfield is gorgeous on it), offers enough screen real estate at work to make me feel like a god, and connects easily to every device I hook it up to.
Price check: £898.97 at Laptops Direct
ASUS Vivobook S 15 OLED:
£999 £799 at Currys
Save £200: With 16GB of RAM, a 13th-gen Intel Core i5-13500H processor and that beautiful, bright OLED screen ASUS is becoming deservedly known for, this Vivobook is all you need for hybrid working, photo-editing (the screen is Pantone-validated) and all-around portable joy. A worthy and keenly priced MacBook Air alternative (if you need an Apple reference point). I've got a slightly more expensive version designed by the fashion brand Bathing Ape on my desk, but this one is nearly identical under the chassis.
