Amazon Prime Day 2019 has officially launched in the UK and − with it − more laptop, tablet, TV and tech deals to choose from than ever.
As you may already know, the 'day' actually lasts for two days this year and, following yesterday's initial sales extravaganza, we will be here throughout the day to bring you a by-the-hour list of the best Prime Day deals.
For those who are new to Prime Day and its ever-changing offers, make sure you're signed up for a free 30-day trial to Amazon Prime before you shop. You need to be a member to get access to the best deals (but, handily, memberships also come with unlimited one-day delivery on millions of items, all Prime Video content, and more).
Now, with no further ado, here is our ultimate list of the best Amazon Prime Day 2019 deals:
Best laptop deals
Apple MacBook Pro, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD
As the mac daddy of Apple laptops (pun absolutely intended), this MacBook Pro has just been put on a rare and brilliant Prime Day deal. As Apple themselves rarely cut prices, you can assume Amazon are taking the hit on this powerful 13-inch laptop to highlight their final day of sales. Inside, this laptop boasts a dual-core 7th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, crisp Retina display, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640, and an ultra-fast SSD.
ASUS C101PA-FS002 10.1 Inch Touchscreen Chromebook Flip
These are the kind of deals Prime Day is made for. This ASUS Chromebook Flip C101PA is not only one of the world's lightest and most powerful 10-inch Chromebooks but its 360-degree hinged screen means you can create, communicate and chill precisely as you like. Additionally, the tablet gives you access to millions of Google Play Store apps and its USB ports support charging, video output and lightning-fast data transfers (up to 5Gbps) on the go.
HP OMEN 15-dc0029na 15.6-inch Gaming Laptop
As any gamer will know, a laptop's graphics card is one of the most important factors of a gaming laptop. Thankfully, this HP laptop's NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 is the bees knees. The rest of the laptop is pretty well kitted out, as well; Intel Core i7 8th gen processor, an enhanced thermal solution that can take on the most intense of all-night gaming sessions, a backlit rollover keyboard (designed for intuitive reflex play), a 144 Hz refresh rate, and a custom-turned sound system by the audio experts at Bang & Olufsen. Well worth the (very kindly discounted) investment.
Best Alexa and Amazon device deals
Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote
Amazon’s most powerful Fire Stick has been slashed to under £20. With this you can stream your favourite shows and films from Prime, BBC, Netflix, ITV and more. Just plug it into the back of your TV and you’re away, what’s better is that you can take it with you wherever you go, unlike your flatscreen at home. This Fire Stick also comes with an Alexa Voice Remote, meaning it can work in sync with all of your other Alexa devices.
Amazon Echo (2nd Gen) Smart Speaker with Alexa
If you already had an Alexa-enabled smart speaker, you might be included to ask it what the best Prime Day deals of 2019 might be. If you don't, however, your cheapest chance is finally here. This second-gen Amazon Echo lets you play music, make calls, set alarms, ask questions, check your calendar, weather, traffic, sports scores, and much more by simply giving your virtual cloud assistant ("Alexa...") a command. As more and more smart home devices are being created with Alexa compatibility, these smart speakers are becoming increasingly future-friendly pieces of tech.
This all-new Kindle Paperwhite is a traveler's dream. Rather than hauling ten books around on your summer holidays, you can load hundreds into your Kindle and read them on its glare-free and waterproof display everywhere from the beach to the inflatable unicorn float. Its battery also lasts for weeks, rather than hours, meaning it will serve you just as well through on post-holiday commute if you forget to re-charge for a while. With £40 off, this Paperwhite is almost as cheap as a normal Kindle (which has had £20 knocked off its own price), as well. But the extra tenner is worth the free 4G LTE and doubled storage.
Echo Show 5
Smart homes are what everybody is talking about at the moment. Where you can control everything from your boiler and lights, to your coffee machine and fridge, just by speaking out loud. The Echo Show 5 is the latest of smart home hubs which you can use to pair with other wireless devices to take control of your home. Assisted by a 5.5” display, it allows you to access everything from recipes, the weather forecast or traffic, as well as answer phone calls and listen to your favourite music and podcasts. For those who have seen too much Black Mirror, there’s also a function to disable the camera and microphone to make sure your private life stays private.
Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet
This brilliant little tablet is the first of its kind to offer up hands-free Alexa integration. Even when the screen is turned off. As the most feature-packed tablet, it is also a pretty fantastic aide to all manner of personal and professional tasks. You can use it as a Kindle, access Netflix in a single click (and stream on its Full HD display for up to 10 hours), smart speaker, virtual assistant, and mini laptop - it comes with 32 or 64 GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for up to 256 GB of expandable storage. Both the front- and rear-facing cameras won't compare to that of most modern smartphones, but they're there if you need them. Available in black, blue and red.
Fire 7 Kids Edition Tablet
Though the Fire 7 is the least feature-packed of Amazon's three kids tablets (compared to the HD 8 and HD 10), it is more than enough tablet for young children. The 7-inch tablet has a virtually indestructible case (designed for inevitable drops and knocks) protected by a a two year replacement guarantee and all-access parental controls which make it truly worry-free for your little ones. The tablet also includes a one-year subscription to Fire for Kids Unlimited (which gives yous access to thousands of kid-friendly apps, games, videos, books and Audible audiobooks, including content from Disney, Nickelodeon and Sesame Street).
Best phone deals
Samsung Galaxy Note 9
There is a lot to love about Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 and, with an enormous £400 off for Prime Day, it might just be time to make it your own. The phone is has a powerful battery that can last all day, 128GB built-in storage (expandable up to 512GB more through microSDs), a cutting-edge processor (essential for streaming video and gaming), and more. Though its 'S Pen' may seem like a gimmick, it actually utilises Bluetooth technology to make your day to day easier; you can take photos, do presentations, scribble notes and control apps without having to touch your phone.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro
This AI-powered smartphone may not be Huawei's latest release, but it has almost exactly the same technical specs as the brand's more expensive models - plus an ultra wide angle camera lens. With £400 off for Prime Day, you simply couldn't get more for less. The phone comes with 128GB storage, an unbelievable Leica camera (which shoots according to the scenario you're in to ensure the best shot possible), rapid wireless charging, facial recognition, and a beautifully curved glass screen resistant to water and dust.

With and improved seven days of battery life and water resistance of 50m, nothing can stand in the way of a healthier you.
Sony RX100 IV Advanced Compact Premium Camera
Now that the cameras on our smartphones are more powerful than ever, compact cameras really have to offer a lot of value to stand out from the tech-y crowd. Thankfully, brands like Sony have taken note. This pocket-sized camera is both powerful and full of outstanding features. With a 20.1MP sensor and super fast 1/32000 sec anti distortion shutter, your photos will be remarkably clear even in the most chaotic or quick-moving situations (think: catching single drops of a water splash). On top on that, the RX100 IV has a flip-up screen for high-res selfies and HD vlogging.

Robot vacuum cleaner brands are few and far between but, for a budget-priced leader, eufy really stands out from the crowd.

Enacfire Wireless Headphones
As an alternative to the iArmy's beloved Apple Airpods (currently £10 off, for no reason related to Prime Day), these wireless earphones are an absolute steal.

Anker PowerCore 26800 Portable Charger
It’s summer. That means it’s festival and holiday season where often you can be hours from being able to fully charge your phone.

With three USB ports, it can charge a family of devices, claiming to be capable of recharging most iPhones six times over.

Best gaming deals

For under £170 you get the console, two controllers and four games including FIFA 19 and Minecraft. This is a digital-only console, meaning that you can only download your games rather than using disks. But, in this day and age, is that really such an issue?

Best miscellaneous Prime Day deals
G. H. Mumm Cordon Rouge Champagne, 75 cl
Champagne means celebration, and if you’re looking to store up some bottles for any upcoming festivities. Price is usually the main obstacle standing in the way of a good glass of bubbly, but at only £20, this is a steal. Don’t make do with Prosecco, have a proper drink. Who knows, you could even crack open a bottle this year, if we leave the EU.
Nespresso Creatista Plus by Sage
The Creatista is not your average coffee maker. While you can pop a Nespresso pod in and get a fresh coffee in less than a minute, start to finish, the machine's eight beverage options also give you the chance to whip up barista-worthy milk-based recipes (like cappuccinos, café latte, latte macchiatos, and flat whites). The eight additional milk texture/froth settings (from 2 to 30 mm) and eleven milk temperature settings (from 56 to 76°C) make sure you get your individually perfect coffee of choice with ease.

Oral-B SmartSeries 6500 CrossAction Electric Toothbrush
If you have yet to cross over into the wonderful world of electronic toothbrushes, this is your chance. The Oral-B SmartSeries 6500 is currently on Prime Day sale at a, frankly, ridiculous price and comes with every feature you could think of.

ghd Air Hairdryer
Though many people use a hair dryer each and every day, it's easy for us to take them for granted. We simply want dry hair that looks nice in as little time as possible. Which is where the ghd Air comes in. Not all hairdryers are created equal, you see, and the 2100 W motor on this professional hair dryer makes it much more powerful than the average. With advanced ionic technology, the tool actually locks in moisture as it dries (doing so faster, quieter and gentler than you're probably used to) for softer, shinier results. The ergonomic design even makes it comfortable for both left and right-handed users.

One of the many fruits of Prime Day browsing labour is coming across deals like this.

Perhaps even two of Vera Wang's eponymous perfume. For those who love sensual, floral fragrances (think Bulgarian rose, calla lily and white woods), you couldn't hope for more.
Laphroaig Quarter Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Whether you prefer gin, wine or whisky, Amazon is sure to have your tipple of choice covered this Prime Day.

Grey Goose French Vodka, 70 cl
Fancy vodka for a not-so-fancy price. Though we usually think of Russia as the home of vodka, Grey Goose has always been known to be on the pricey side of the clear spirit.

Kick back this summer with a cold glass of this on the rocks, for significantly less.

Campingaz Gas 4 Series Classic Barbecue
