Daily tech deals: Apple iPhone 4S & Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 price slashed plus HP Pavillion 15 Windows 8 laptop

The comedown from Black Friday and Cyber Monday is being felt by many, but fear not, gadget enthusiasts - we have a full round of cracking new deals for you to top up on today!

Kicking things off is an unlocked 16GB Apple iPhone 4S - a steal for just £227.50 via eBay. That's a whopping £125 cheaper than the 8GB iPhone 4S currently available via the Apple Store, and the deal includes free shipping. Despite being a couple of generations old now, the iPhone 4S is still a hugely serviceable smartphone, featuring a 3.5in Retina display and 8-megapixel camera, as well as being immediately upgradable to iOS 7.

Rival electronics giant Samsung also finds itself subject to a stellar bargain, with Amazon price slashing the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 model by 40 per cent. It's now just a mere £120 - £60 less than its RRP. The Samsung slate features a dual-core Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.5GHz, weighs just 313g, and ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. While it may no longer be the absolute cutting edge, it's absolute wheeze at this price point.

For those after a slightly more professional deal, the HP Pavilion 15-n083sa laptop is currently available for just £500 on a web exclusive via Currys. That's £50 less than the in-store retail price for a seriously tempting notebook that packs a 1TB hard drive, amongst other features. Under the hood, this particular configuration sports an AMD A10-4655M processor, 8GB of RAM, and an AMD Radeon HD 7620G graphics card. The deal also comes with free home delivery, and of course the laptop ships with Windows 8, as well as offering an optical drive for old school media buffs. Only the screen may come across as a slight disappointment: its 1366 x 768 pixel display is sound enough, but it's sadly not touchscreen to make full use of Windows 8's functionality.
