Prime Day 2021 is arriving next week with the Prime Day 2021 date set on June 21 and June 22, and we’re expecting to see plenty of great Prime Day deals, including Prime Day PC sales if previous years are anything to go by. If you’re looking to buy a new system, whether it’s for your home office or to upgrade your gaming setup, there’s sure to be a great PC deal for you here. Read on as we check out what to expect from the Prime Day PC deals and whether you should buy a PC on Prime Day.
Technology is one of Prime Day’s strongest areas so we’re expecting to see pretty good Prime Day PC sales this year. With more people than ever working from home and upgrading their home technology, this is a great time for some good sales. It’s likely that we’ll see a little bit of everything in the Prime Day PC deals. What does that mean? We’re thinking some great gaming towers are likely to be on sale, as well as budget desktops for home office purposes.
While we can’t see the gaming towers involving anything GeForce RTX 30-series-flavored due to continuing shortages, it does seem likely that we’ll see the RTX 20-series range included among the gaming towers that will be discounted during the Prime Day PC sales.
When it comes to home office PCs, expect systems with solidly dependable processors and RAM, so you can multitask productively.
Last year, we saw much of what we expect to see this year. That includes things like the ABS Master gaming tower which paired an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU with an RTX 2060 Super GPU and was discounted by $350. Other sales, including big discounts on home office setups, were also seen so you could pick up a system for any budget or requirement.
If you need a new PC then the answer is clear — yes! However, if you’re a little unsure if you truly need to upgrade your system then you might be tempted to wait until Black Friday. Honestly, in many cases, the discounts are roughly the same so the main thing you need to know is if you can justify the cost right now.
Before making a purchase, consider what your budget is and stick with it. It’s tempting during sales season to go over budget but it’s not always smart. Read up on our best desktop computers guide so you know what you’re looking for, and don’t be tempted by incremental discounts. Some Prime Day PC deals aren’t as sweet as others so check to see if the discount is truly substantial enough to be worth your time and money.
