Get big discounts on laptops and gaming accessories with Box's Christmas deals

Fun things to unbox, from Box.

Christmas is only a couple of weeks away and there are lots of opportunities to save on gifts. Online retailer Box is having a big sale ahead of the holidays, with discounts on loads of tech and gaming accessories including Laptops, monitors, consoles, games, PC components, and more.

Down below you can see some of our favourite items that have big discounts right now, but there's plenty more to see in the full Box Christmas sale so make sure you check that out too once you've seen our recommendations.

ASUS TUF Gaming F17- Intel Core i5

ASUS TUF Gaming F17- Intel Core i5- £700 at Box (was £950)

Get this deal

This is a great option for a budget gaming laptop to upgrade someone's gaming setup. The Intel Core i5 processor and Nvidia RTX 3050Ti graphics cards are great options for 1080p gaming that will deliver plenty of performance, and you can see it all on the 144Hz 17.3-inch screen. This version of the TUF 17 does come with just 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, which are both fine for this price, but they can be upgraded easily in the future if you want some extra speed and space. Now Box has slashed £250 on this built-to-last laptop ahead of the holidays.

Acer Nitro XV252Q 24.5-inch Gaming Monitor

Acer Nitro XV252Q 24.5-inch Gaming Monitor- £250 at Box (was £424)

If the person you're buying for is a gamer that values every single frame per second in their games, whether it be CS:GO or Call of Duty, then this Acer Nitro Monitor with a 280Hz refresh rate and 0.5ms response time is sure to make them happy. This monitor is 24.5-inches with 1080p resolution, which for most competitive gamers is fine as they tend to sacrifice quality for performance anyway. Now with a big £174 discount this speedy screen is only £250, a real steal for a monitor with these specs.

Acer CB342CK 34-inch Ultrawide Monitor

If you're instead buying for someone who plays less frame-demanding games and really wants an immersive experience, or someone who does a lot of multitasking while working, then an ultrawide monitor can be a real game-changer. This 34-inch screen from Acer has a nice IPS panel with 3440 x 1440 UWQHD Resolution, 1ms response time and a 75Hz refresh rate so games they do play will look smooth. The £100 discount brings this down in price more in-line with standard sized monitors and makes it a really good value option.
