Paying full price on big-ticket items is the domain of chumps. Never buy a mattress outside of Memorial Day weekend, never buy a new car unless it’s Toyotathon season, and never, ever, buy a new laptop unless it’s Amazon Prime Day. America’s favorite shopping holiday is always good to those looking to upgrade their tech, and this year is no exception. This year’s Prime Day has sales on laptops, tablets, and even graphics cards.
Of course, in order to take advantage of the day’s deals, you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber. Luckily, if you’re not already on the two-day shipping train, you can nab a complimentary 30-day trial membership here. Here are the best Prime Day deals on computers.
