If you are well acquainted with the spinning wheel of doom, you have come to the right place.
There is no reason why your laptop should be holding you back or taking an age to load even the simplest of web pages. It’s 2022 and we live in a technologically advanced world where there are newer, faster, better models available – and contrary to what you might believe, it doesn’t need to cost you an arm and a leg.
Amazon Prime Day is almost here and with it comes a bevy of discounts across tech staples, ranging from TVs and Amazon Devices, to laptops – the focus of this particular article (although we have specific ones for both of the aforementioned).
Investing in a new device is only going to enhance your productivity. With most of us still working hybrid between home and the office, our laptops have become the most essential bit of kit that we own. Our devices have had to take on a whole new role to cope with the daily grind too and for many, this was a feat too challenging to meet.
Taking you from work to the weekend, it may also be the place where you watch the majority of your TV on streaming services like Netflix and Prime Video or for the gamers among you, it will be where you shoot, kick, or explore in virtual worlds – all of which require a level of horsepower to get going.
Find out all about the sales event and shop the best laptop deals on Amazon right now.
When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?
The two-day mega discount event is taking place on July 12-13. Over 48 hours, you can stock up on tech, home and even baby essentials where the prices have been slashed.
Do you need a Prime account to get the deals?
It is important to have a Prime Day membership otherwise you will not be able to make the most of the reductions. The subscription costs just £7.99 per month or £79 per year, but for those new to the service, you can test the waters with a free 30-day trial. Students get the reduced rate of £3.99 a month.
This monthly or yearly cost includes next or even same day delivery, Prime Video, Music and much more so gives real bang for your buck.
What type of deals are available?
Look out for three kinds of deals; ones that will last the duration of the event (until the item sells out), Deals of the Day or Lightning deals that - as the name suggests - will only last a few hours. Once the items are gone, they’re gone, so don’t wait to snap up the bargains.
What deals on laptops were there last year?
Amazon Prime Day is the time to invest in a new laptop. The discounts last year were across all the big names including Acer, Asus, Huawei, Samsung, HP, Microsoft and Apple. There were also tablets, monitors, hard drives and accessories that came in particular handy for those looking to elevate their set-up.
The biggest reductions were on the Samsung Galaxy Book that was discounted 45 per cent as well as the HP Pavilion 15-dk1019na, reduced from £1,149.99 to £899.99.
What deals can we expect this year?
The deals will follow in last year’s footsteps with Microsoft, Samsung, Apple and HP among the names to watch.
