Round two of Amazon’s Prime Day event is now underway, and there are still plenty of excellent deals out there. So if you didn’t quite find what you were looking for, you’ve got some time. Those deals include low prices on new laptops for school, work, gaming, content creation or entertainment. And make no mistake: Prime Day really is an excellent time to buy a laptop, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars.
Amazon isn’t the only retailer dropping prices on laptops right now, either. Best Buy, Walmart and other stores have competing sales going and even PC makers like Dell, Acer and HP offer discounts when buying directly from their sites too. One thing you should know when it comes to Amazon’s sales, though: For Prime-exclusive deals on Prime Day, you need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber ($139 a year). There is a way around it, though.
As one of CNET’s PC experts, I’ve scanned the current sales and dropped some of the best deals I’ve found so far below. These are laptops I wouldn’t hesitate to buy for myself or recommend to friends or family (depending on their individual needs, of course). We’ll keep updating this list as older deals expire and new ones drop, so check back for the latest offers.
