Amazon's Prime Day brings millions of deals to those looking to spend some money, and if you're in the market for a laptop, Prime Day is a great time to buy one. There are all different kind of laptops available at reduced pricing, so whether you want something that's light and portable, or something powerful that can stay pretty stationary, you'll likely find something here.
How to get the Best Laptop Deals
Finding a deal for a laptop can be a tricky beast, mainly because there are so many options available on the market. Just because something is on sale and a deal, doesn't mean that it's the best one for you. What you'll want to do is take a look at how you plan to use the machine, and then pick some basic specs that you'll be interested in. If you're just using it for basic browsing and document creation, just about anything will work for you, but if you plan to edit videos and photos, well that's a different story.
Once you've figured out the basics of what you need, you'll want to think about brands. These days, each brand offers something slightly different, so be sure to check them all out. Once you've locked all of that in, lastly you'll want to determine a comfortable budget. You may realize that what you're looking to spend doesn't match with what you need from the computer, which means no deal will be a good one for you.
Amazon will have a lot of models available on Prime Day, but as with most electronics, the deals won't last long. Be sure to do your research early, and then you'll be ready when you spot the deal.
Best Windows Discount: Asus Predator Helios 300
Laptops with Windows are as varied as the stars in the sky. What you end up buying really depends on what you want the most, whether that's a slick, slim ulltrabook design or a beefy gaming laptop. The Helios 300 hits a pretty decent spot between beefy insides and a nice design. We used to see the Helios 300 combined with Windows mixed reality headsets because it's powerful enough for virtual reality, but it's the mixed reality headsets that died off not the laptop.
The laptop has a 144 Hz 1080p display, a 256GB M.2 NVMe SSD, and a powerful GTX 1060 graphics card. It avoids bottlenecks like integrated graphics and poor memory. You'll also have USB-C ports, dual AeroBlade 3D Fan cooling, and a battery that lasts up to seven hours.

Best MacBook Discount: MacBook Pro
Ever since Amazon started selling Apple gear, the site has become the de facto place for finding the best Apple deals. I mean, Apple deals are like unicorns they're so rare. At least Amazon gives us these $100 to $200 discounts we can take full advantage of. Most of Amazon's discounts center around the tablets, but every now and then the laptops drop in price as well.
This configuration of the MacBook Pro goes for $1,300 on Apple's website. We have actually seen it go $100 lower on Amazon, but the current discount is decent, too. You'll get a dual-core 7th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, Apple's 13.3-inch Retina display, a 128GB SSD, two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports, and 10 hours of battery life.

Best Chromebook Deal: Samsung Chromebook Pro
Samsung makes some great Chromebook options and its Chromebook Pro has been loved since it was first released. We've seen a few discounts for this model in the past, but recently it hasn't been going on sale as much.
