We're seeing big Prime Day deals across the board on laptops. And you can save hundreds of pound on some impressive laptops if you're fast. 

Case in point: Amazon has the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion on sale for £729 at Amazon, saving you a hefty £520. That's a 42% discount on a laptop that has a lot going for it, not least an impressive Full HD QLED display.

The Samsung Galaxy Book Ion's obvious standout feature is its Full HD 13-inch QLED screen — and yes, that's the same tech Samsung uses in its excellent TVs. But with a lightweight 970g body, 1.6Ghz Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM, it's more than just a pretty face.

Samsung's QLED tech is well established in its 4K TVs, offering many of the benefits of OLED without the ultra-high cost, but you don't often see it in laptops. In fact, the Galaxy Book Ion is one of only two to feature the tech; the other is the Galaxy Book Flex, which we praised in our review for its "high brightness and vivid colours." 

Screen aside, this is an attractive and full-featured Windows 10 laptop: with a 10th-generation Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB RAM, you get a decent amount of power, while its 512GB SSD has plenty of space. 

It also has a few nice extra touches, not least the Wireless PowerShare function, which uses the laptop's touchpad to charge Qi-compatible products. If you're on the lookout for a cheap laptop this Prime Day, you could certainly do a lot worse.
