The annual Prime Day deals are arriving tomorrow as this year’s Prime Day 2021 dates are set for Monday and Tuesday, June 21 and June 22. And this huge event will bring an abundance of amazing Prime Day laptop deals. Whether you’re looking to buy yourself a workhorse Windows laptop, a budget-friendly Chromebook, or a high-end device like a 4K laptop or a cutting-edge 2-in-1, there are going to be plenty of Prime Day laptop sales popping up at various retailers. Check out our list, which features the best places to buy a laptop, (which includes Amazon), as well as some that you can already shop right now during Prime Day weekend. Read on as we lay out what you can expect to see, which Prime Day laptop deals were on tap last time around, and whether or not now’s the best time to buy.
Prime Day is generally a great time to snap up a new laptop (or anything tech-related, really). While Amazon’s offerings are arguably not quite as great a value as Black Friday deals, other retailers also offer their own Prime Day laptop deals and this still tends to be among the best times of the year to upgrade your tech — and easily the best time to do so during the summer months if you don’t feel like waiting until late November for the post-Thanksgiving holiday sales.
You can expect most major brands to feature heavily in the Prime Day laptop sales. That means big discounts on the likes of all things Asus, Acer, HP, and Lenovo, with high-end devices like the MacBook Air and Microsoft Surface laptops likely to see price cuts as well. If you’re looking for great Prime Day laptop deals on Chromebooks, we think you’ll be in luck, too, with Chromebooks continuing to be massively popular among those who want a straightforward, portable, and cheap laptop.
Last year, there were great Prime Day laptop sales across the board. Prime Day 2020 saw the latest MacBook Air at $150 less than usual. However, the vast majority of Prime Day laptop deals tend to be on Windows laptops and Chromebooks due to there being so much more choice out there.
We expect to see discounts on pretty much all types of laptops. That includes gaming laptops, cheap workhorse computers, and even some ultraslim laptops and 2-in-1 Ultrabook-style devices. The biggest discounts will be on slightly older last-generation models, but don’t be surprised if you also see the newer stuff at the lowest prices for a limited time (so be ready to act fast).
If you need a new laptop, Prime Day is a no-brainer. Just make sure you set a budget for yourself and stick to it. There may be a chance that better offers come later during Black Friday, but Prime Day deals are often every bit as good and allow you to enjoy a new laptop in the summer rather than having to wait until the holiday season. Just make sure you’ve done your research and have checked out our best laptops guide and best laptop brands guide so you know what to look for.
