Amazon Prime Day 2019 has officially launched in the UK and − with it − more laptop, smart device and tech deals to choose from than ever.
As you may already know, Prime Day actually lasts for two full days this year and we will be bringing you a by-the-hour list of the best deals both today (July 16) and tomorrow (July 17).
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
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.
Huawei MateBook D 15.6" Laptop, 1080P FHD Ultrabook
This Ultrabook really is Ultra. For shoppers who want something that looks as good as it performs, the laptop's all metal uni-body shell gives the little PC powerhouse a truly luxurious finish. Then, on the inside, the laptop boasts a powerful 8th Generation Intel Core i3 Processor, Dolby Atmos Sound System (for cinematic sound on the fly), and a 43.3Wh battery for up to 8.5 hours of local video playback. All at its lowest-ever price.
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 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.
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 tech deals

Robot vacuum cleaner brands are few and far between but, for a budget-priced leader, eufy really stands out from the crowd. This upgraded model is still a fraction of the cost of its competitors, but performs similarly.

The small device lets you see, hear and speak to visitors at your front door from anywhere in the world; all you need is a phone, tablet or PC to control it and its HD camera. The doorbell notifies your app whenever someone rings it or movement is detected, making it as useful for security as it is for ignoring door-to-door salespeople.

Oral-B SmartSeries 6000 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 6000 is currently on Prime Day sale at a, frankly, ridiculous price and comes with every feature you could think of.

Best gaming deals

Whether you're shopping ahead for a gamer's birthday, Christmas present or simply feel like treating yourself, this PS4 bundle is as good as it gets. Alongside the revamped 500GB console itself (slimmer and lighter than its previous generations), the PS4 comes with Red Dead Remption (or RDR) 2 − arguably the game of the year. The pair are perfect for making the most out of the game's HDR-demanding Western adventures and the deal, which knocks £30 off an already generous bundle, couldn't be better.

Best miscellaneous Prime Day deals

Let's not beat around the bush; this 50-inch Smart TV is an absolute steal. Even in smaller sizes, 4K and Ultra HD can cost you over £1000. You'll want to get this while it's hot. As well as incorporating state of the art tech and easy access to all apps (including Netflix, Prime Video and Google Assistant), Philips' unique Ambilight technology emits a wide glow from three sides of the TV which mimics those shown, as they happen, on the TV.

Vera Wang Signature Eau de Parfum
One of the many fruits of Prime Day browsing labour is coming across deals like this. By taking over £50 off the price of a designer fragrance, Amazon not only give you the chance to treat yourself to something special but leave you enough money to buy a second one. 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.
Apple iPhone XR
Is Prime Day ever really a Prime Day without a great iPhone deal? We think not and, this year, Apple's iPhone XR is the one to basket. The phone's all-new 6.1 Liquid Retina display is the most advanced LCD in the industry and, thanks to innovative backlight design, it's virtually all screen. Virtually — apart from a lot of fantastic tech; its Intelligent A12 Bionic chop (powering everything from augmented reality to beautiful portraits), its intuitive 12 MP camera (including an f/1.8 wide-angle lens), and face recognition security. Plus wireless charging.
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. For those who love the latter in particular, you'd be sore to miss out on this discounted bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask. The supremely smoky whisky has won countless awards for its delectable balance of peat and sweet, making it a perfect bottle to stock up on for future dinner party gifts and fireside drams alike.
