Prime Day laptop deals — what to watch for

Last year, Amazon sold over 100,000 laptops during Prime Day. Naturally, we expect Amazon to shatter that record this year. And given the high demand for laptops this year, there's a chance we'll see even more aggressive Prime Day laptops over the next day.

Although there have been some Chromebook deals, we still think there won't be as many. These Chrome OS-based laptops tend to dominate the budget space, but Chromebooks have been hard to find on sale throughout 2020. As a result, we expect Chromebook discounts to remain modest throughout Prime Day. 

Instead, you'll find better discounts on Celeron or Core i3-based machines running Windows. Expect these systems to see discounts of $50 to $100 off with prices starting at $199.

If you're looking for Prime Day laptop deals on gaming rigs, you'll want to focus on systems by MSI and Asus, which tend to get the steepest price cuts from Amazon. By comparison, gaming rigs manufactured by Alienware and Lenovo tend to see better discounts when purchased direct from the manufacturer. Look for Dell discounts that take from 10% to 12% off sitewide and Lenovo deals that save from $100 to $400 off.
