Prime Day is Amazon’s very own yearly massive sale event. This year it will last two days, starting on Monday, 15th of July, at 3am and will end 48 hours later. Although laptops aren’t a huge part of Prime Day, unlike Black Friday or Cyber Monday, you’ll likely be able to find enough offers. But only if you’re a member of Amazon Prime. The vast majority of deals are available only to their customers who are also Prime members. Therefore, if you don’t want to miss out on any deals and you haven’t tried out Prime yet, you should really consider getting a free 30-day membership right now.
What deals to look for?
The first items to go during previous Prime Day events were TVs, smartphones and smartwatches. They are by far the most sought after products. Most likely, these deals will be the first to be exhausted, so you’ll want to act fast. Other categories, such as kitchenware will have more deals in total, making it more likely for you to snatch something you’ve been saving for.
Best Prime deals as of now
As expected, since this is Amazon’s event after all, most great deals will involve their very own products. For instance, the Amazon Echo Input will only cost $14 ($20 off) and their Fire TV Recast will be $129 ($100 off). Also, Google Home products and TVs will have large discounts, percentage-wise. Since personal computers aren’t the main star on this stage, it’s hard to get access to deals before the 15th. So, I made a list of the best laptops you can buy from Amazon right now, regardless of any promotions. These are notebooks that are worth every penny, even without any additional discounts. Better if you can get your hands on a deal, but otherwise great value for money.
Are the deals really worth it?
This is a question that pops up every year. The answer is nuanced. Mainly, because it depends on you, the buyer. Whether a certain deal is worth it or not depends entirely on you. What you need, what is an acceptable offer for you, and so on. Rather than ask yourself if a certain sale even is worth it, ask if you really need all those products that will be on sale. Of course you won’t. Focus on what you really, really need and search discounts in that category rather than browse aimlessly in search for the next bargain.
Best laptops to consider for Prime Day 2019
There are a number of criteria after which I usually structure my best of lists. Normally, I group notebooks into categories defined by their price range or type. They can be either affordable, or expensive, or best buys. This time, I’ll focus only on the ones who have the best hardware and features, and don’t cost a fortune. After all, it’s Prime Day. I want a deal. You want a deal. Everyone wants a deal. Right? So, without further ado, here is my list of the best possible laptops you can buy this July.
1. ASUS ZenBook 13
2. Dell XPS 13 9380
3. Acer Swift 3
4. ASUS Vivobook 15
5. Lenovo C330 Chromebook
7. MSI P75 Creator
