HP drops killer laptop deals for Prime Day with over $800 in price cuts

Buying a computer on Prime Day usually involves frantically digging through Amazon to find the best laptop deals available. However, with Prime Day extending over 48 hours this year, many other retailers are getting in on the savings. With that extra time, competing retailers like HP, Dell, and Walmart are offering big sales to keep up with Amazon. So if you are looking for the best laptop deal for Prime Day, you have plenty of options to choose from — including Macbook discounts.

The HP brand is known for high-quality portable computers, most notably the Spectre x360 — which we have deemed to be nearly perfect. With discounts over $800 during HP’s Prime Day deals event, you can apply the code FIVEMORE to get additional savings.

If you’re looking for one of the very best laptops you can buy, then this isn’t going to be it.  That doesn’t mean it isn’t still a decent portable computer, however — especially when you factor in its low price point. With an Intel Core i7 processor, 8 GB of memory, and a 128 GB SSD, this budget laptop drops some storage space to bring the price down to just $494. It has a pretty decent battery life, a large 15.6-inch screen, and is relatively portable at just 1-inch thick. The HP 15t doesn’t have quite the horsepower other laptops on our list do, but it will work just fine as an everyday work notebook.

With some configurations priced as high as $1,300, this HP laptop comes in at just $494 during this sale. This is one of the best doorbuster deals the HP Prime Day sale has to offer right now.

HP has come out with a few different updates of this 2-in-1 laptop, and it has remained one of our favorites throughout its glorious evolution. We actually gave the 2019 HP Spectre x360 13 an impressive 10 out of 10 in our review — which is a rare sight for any laptop. With great battery life, a comfy and precise keyboard, and convertible nature it is a really good choice for anyone hoping to be productive. This particular option offers an Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB of memory, and 256 GB SSD. This is currently the most affordable configuration we could find, but you can scale up processing power and memory while maintaining that same discount. Though the extra 5 percent off varies by overall price.

Normally priced around $1,150, you can pick up this HP convertible laptop for as low as $902 right now.  If you’re looking for the best laptop under $1,000 during this Prime Day sale, this is it.

HP 14-inch Chromebook — $159, was $299

If you're looking for budget laptops, Chromebooks are usually a great place to start. They're just cheaper than other laptops on many fronts, though there is some pared-down functionality when you compare them to laptops at large. This 14-inch laptop with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC memory has great cloud storage and is perfect for getting you through documents, web browsing, and enjoying videos on YouTube. If you have some difficulty thinking about what else you can do on a laptop but those things, and you're not alone, this laptop was pretty much made for you. Due to the excellent price point and low chances for distraction, this is an excellent laptop for college students looking to get something extra to throw in their backpack.

If you weren't aware, the Best Buy 3-Day Sale is going on now. While the name is a considerably less flashy than Amazon's Prime Day, it does make immediate sense. There's a sale going on at Best Buy, and it lasts... for three days, ending Sunday. During this sale, you can find a number of classic Best Buy items — with everything from the best laptops to the best tablets — marked down in price. Here, we investigate the tablets that make up the 3-Day Sale and highlight the five we like the most, based on discount and quality of the product, while also showing a wide variety of tablets and price ranges.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ — $190, was $220

While the discount isn't too steep, there also isn't a lot of room to bring the Galaxy Tab A9+'s price down anyhow. This low-priced tablet is perfect for watching videos and browsing the net. It can also be cozy to curl up next to someone else and watching programming together on its surprisingly large 11-inch, 1920 x 1200p screen. As the Galaxy Tab A9+ only uses 4GB of RAM and has a mere 64GB of storage, you might think it wouldn't be too great at gaming, but with a 90Hz refresh rate, it can definitely take on some action-packed fun. Just install a few apps at a time and be a completionist about it.

Our 5 favorite gaming laptop deals in Best Buy’s ‘3-Day Sale’
Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 placed on a desk.

Gaming laptops are typically quite expensive. To have an effective one, you've got to get good storage, a nice processor, and likely throw in above-average RAM. We've all seen the big towers of pre-built desktop computers — they're big, and that space is totally non-existent in a gaming laptop. In other words, a gaming laptop is a feat of engineering. That's why we're particularly interested in gaming laptop deals, whenever they come up. And right now they're coming up via Best Buy's 3-Day Sale, an aptly named sale that lasts for... three days. It's ending Sunday, so go check these deals out now.
HP Victus 15.6-inch Gaming Laptop — $550, was $800

The key stat/hardware line (AMD Ryzen 5 7535HS processor, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 graphics card, 512GB SSD storage) of the HP Victus can sound intimidating, even with 8GB of RAM. That's why we're delightfully shocked that this laptop is nearing the $500 mark after discounts. For your gaming needs, it also has an anti-glare monitor with 144Hz refresh rate. While it still won't beat using the best ethernet cables, the WiFi 6 standard will help you get your games downloaded fast. Other features gamers will enjoy are the full keyboard with numpad (traditional ASCII-based roguelikes, anyone?) to AI noise removal for clear communication with your teammates.
