Best laptop deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021: Offers on Apple, Microsoft and Samsung

For the savvy shoppers among us, we have been waiting for Amazon Prime Day to stock up on our tech and home essentials - and we have good news. The countdown is officially on.

The online retailing giants have announced that its annual sales extravaganza will be taking place this year from June 21 to 22.

The event typically takes place in the summer months but due to lockdown and the huge surge in orders that came with it, Amazon pushed it back to October last year. For those who didn’t make the most of the offers, you’re in for another chance as the two day bonanza promises to be the retailer’s biggest and best ever. Last year, customers saved a total of £75 million so we’re expecting big things.

One of the most hugely anticipated sales items will be the laptop offering. Many among us are still working from home on tired, old laptops that were made only for light weekend streaming. 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.

Amazon Prime Day has got a whole host of great laptop deals from some of the biggest brands. Last year saw discounts across Acer, Asus, Huawei, Samsung, HP, Microsoft and Apple. There were also tables, monitors, hard drives and accessories that came in particular handy for those looking to elevate their set-up.

Gamers rejoice, we have not forgotten you. There’s also tons of tech to optimise the experience and put you one step in front of the competition.

There’s just one catch. You must be an Amazon Prime member to shop the deals or have a generous friend willing to share their password and card details. It costs £79 a year (that’s just £6.58 a month), £7.99 a month for the commitment-phobes, just £3.99 a month for students and there’s a 30-day free trial to take advantage of first. This includes free next day delivery, Prime Video with thousands of movies and TV shows at no extra cost and Amazon Music.

Look out for two kinds of deals; ones that will last the duration of the event (until the item sells out) 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 deals.

Shop the best deals on laptops, tablets, monitors and accessories.

But first, here are ES’ top pick of the deals:
