From Chromebooks to MacBooks, here are the best laptop deals for June 2019

Our best laptop deals for June 2019, including the discounted Dell XPS 13

Shopping for a new computer can be frustrating, especially if you’re on a budget and not looking to spend a lot of money. It also can be quite confusing, with all those specifications to think about — be it RAM, storage, or processing power. And with Prime Day 2019 on the horizon, you may even want to start thinking about what laptop deals Amazon will be bringing to the table.

There’s no need to worry, though, as we’ve got your back. We’ve sorted through the web and below are the best laptop deals available for June 2019. Our picks cover everything you can think of — 2-in-1s, MacBooks, Chromebooks, and more.

Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) — $1,056

Dell XPS 13 2019 review (9380)
Riley Young/Digital Trends

One of the best laptops on the market today — and in fact, for several years running — is Dell’s diminutive XPS 13. The latest version has the same tiny bezels as always but puts the webcam above the display where it belongs, removing one of the only complaints we had about the machine.

It’s incredibly well-built, looks great, and performs well. It even has a hinge that’s designed to open easily but to then provide just the right amount of stiffness to keep it in place. What’s not to like?

Right now, Dell has a sale on a solid configuration of the newest model, bringing it down to just $1,056. That nets you an 8th-gen Core i5-8265U CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB PCIe solid-state drive (SSD), and a Full HD display.

HP Spectre x360 13 (2019) – $1,050

If you’re looking for a convertible 2-in-1 that works as well as a laptop as it does as a tablet, then you need to look no further than the HP Spectre x360 13. The latest “gem-cut” version scored a perfect 10/10 in our review on the strength of its stunning good looks, excellent performance, high-quality build, and mind-blowing battery life. The version we’re listing here has a power-sipping Full HD display that saves battery life — to go with an 8th-gen Whiskey Lake Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.

Right now, HP has this lovely laptop on sale right now for $100 off, bringing it down to $1,050. That’s a nice break, but keep an eye on this one because the price has been even lower recently.

Microsoft Surface Pro 6 with type cover — $999

Microsoft Surface Pro 6

Microsoft’s excellent Surface Pro series continues to be one of the best attempts at bridging the gap between tablets and laptops. The new Surface Pro 6 is actually our favorite 2-in-1 Windows 10 computer on the market today, picking up where the older Surface Pro model from 2017 took off. It features super-solid build quality and superb battery life. As great as the Surface Pro 6 is, though, you typically have to buy the keyboard case separately (and it’s not really a “2-in-1” laptop without it).

Luckily, Microsoft has the Surface Pro 6 bundle on sale right now for $300 off, letting you score this Windows 10 tablet/PC hybrid with a black- or platinum-colored Type Cover keyboard case for $999 for the model with 8GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, and an Intel Core i5 processor. This makes it a great device for most day-to-day productivity and media consumption tasks.

Microsoft Surface Laptop (Gen 1) — $710

Surface Laptop First Impressions

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop was the company’s first foray into the traditional clamshell laptop form factor. The machine sports a variety of colors – Platinum, Burgundy, Cobalt Blue, and Graphite Gold — with Alcantara fabric on the keyboard deck and an all-aluminum chassis.

The original version of the Surface Laptop equips 7th-gen Intel Core CPUs, and so performance is good for productivity tasks, with solid battery life and an awesome keyboard and touchpad experience. The display is the real standout, with superior brightness and contrast and the productivity-friendly 3:2 aspect ratio (2,256 x 1,504 resolution).

Amazon has that first generation on sale for up to 45 percent off. That’s for the Platinum color with an Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.

Acer Aspire E15 — $329

Acer Aspire E 15 Review
Mark Coppock/Digital Trends

Acer might be known for its Chromebooks, but this brand built its name on its affordable Windows laptops like the Aspire series. The 15-inch Acer Aspire E 15 is the perfect entry-level work computer, running on an eighth-generation Intel Core i3-8130U CPU, 6GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive. It also can be upgraded easily. Just pop open the bottom of the laptop and add extra RAM as well as faster solid-state-drive storage if you see fit.

At $329 on sale from Amazon, it is around the same price as (or even cheaper than) many of the best Chromebooks.

MacBook Air 2018 — $1,100

Macbook Air (2018) Review
Deals on Apple products are hard to find, but recently the new 2018 MacBook Air has seen quite a few discounts. It’s now again on sale at Amazon. The latest Apple laptop includes a 128GB solid-state drive, a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, and 8GB of RAM. It also comes in three colors — silver, space gray, and gold. Compared to older MacBook Air models, this version features a high-resolution Retina display, as well as the efficiency of a modern Intel processor. In our review, we liked its thin and light design, as well as its build quality. An improved keyboard, trackpad, and TouchID support were also highs for us.

Amazon’s deal is bringing the price of the MacBook Air down from $1,200 to $1,100.
