As Amazon Prime Day 2020 approaches, and with it a deluge of sales, consumers in need of a new laptop are in luck: A number of the retail giant’s most positively reviewed computers are set to be heavily discounted.
The annual sales event, usually held in July, is now set for Oct. 13 and 14, the company announced late last month. (Plus, here’s more info on further details and how to sign up.)
Here are a few of the best deals on the laptops with the best specs forthcoming on CEO Jeff Bezos’ Black Friday.
HP Chromebook X360 14 Series
This touchscreen laptop, previously $379.99, is getting a Prime Day price drop to $249.99. The thin, entertainment-based Chromebook is foldable, the keyboard becoming a supportive backing for when users prefer to only use the touchscreen. Reviewers praise the book’s accessibility and battery life but mostly that price, which, as one five-star giver puts it, is “a lot of bang for the buck.”
Razer Blade 15 Advanced Gaming Laptop
For gamers looking to shell out for a quality machine, this 15.6-inch Windows 10 gaming laptop is being discounted by over $500, from $2,599.99 to $2,079.99. This device won the 2020 PC Gamer Editor’s Pick award, and while some reviewers complain of a limited lifespan for brand products and specific delivery issues for this model, it has 4.2 out of five stars and has garnered plenty of praise for being “powerful.”
Google Pixelbook Go
For those looking for a lightweight device which also has a touchscreen, the Google Pixelbook offers both, previously for $1,399, currently for $1,174.97. This Pixelbook comes in “not pink” and “just black,” and many users herald it as the best Chromebook on the market, with all around reliable hardware.
ASUS Chromebook Flip C434
This affordable laptop is about to get even more affordable, with its price set to go from $499.99 to $399.99 come Prime Day. Although it has a 14-inch HD touchscreen, owners warn users outside the US to beware of power-adapter issues, but generally say the device is a good choice for those wary of not breaking of the bank. And many give kudos to the keyboard’s backlighting.
Acer Aspire 5
A 15.6-inch laptop, this slim Acer model is set to drop from $359.99 to $279.99 on Prime Day. The description boasts up to 7.5 hours of battery life, and current owners say they were pleasantly surprised to find that the cheap option turned out to in fact be better than pricier models, and an all-around great computer.
Acer Chromebook Spin 311
Another good pick for those who are into the convertible laptop function, this Acer Chromebook easily flips from laptop to tablet. In addition to being Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-equipped, reviewers are notably age diverse and say the device — which is set to have its price drop modestly from $269.99 to $209.99 — has proven ideal for distance learning.
ASUS VivoBook 15
The 15.6-inch ASUS VivoBook weighs in at 3.75 pounds, runs on Windows 10 and is fingerprint-sensor activated. The lightweight, portable aspect of the device — which will drop in price from $456.95 to $299.99 come Prime Day — has users praising it for student use, although some complain of issues with the screen.
Samsung Chromebook 4
This Chromebook will be about as cheap as new laptops get come Prime Day, when its price drops from $249.99 to $199.99. Wi-Fi-enabled with a bitty 11.6-inch display, reviewers have found the item to be a “good little laptop” for those who are fans of Chromebooks.
