Prime Day delivers big discounts on budget laptops
Prime Day is when all the good laptop discounts come into play.
If you've been waiting for a decent deal to pull the trigger on a new laptop, this year's Prime Day sales are here to answer the call.
Finding the best budget laptop is typically an exercise in patience. It's less about finding the perfect laptop, and more about coming to terms with what you're willing to give up in exchange for a better price. Sales events like Prime Day and Black Friday change that dynamic in a big way.
Although the discounts here aren't as steep as what you'll find on more expensive laptops (which, in fairness, have more to lose), the right Prime Day discount can push a mid-tier or even premium laptop into the reach of those who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it.
This time around, ASUS have some of the best product and prices on offer. For instance, the VivoBook Flip 14 is a solid 40% off its usual price. Armed with an 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, 512GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, it's a slick buy that easily eclipses any of the budget laptops we'd usually recommend at that particular pricepoint.
If you need something a little larger than the 14-inch display found on the VivoBook Flip 14, there's another model with a larger 17.3-inch display that's discounted by a similarly-slick 37% off the usual price. This particular VivoBook does come with half as much storage and an i5 processor, but it's also $200 cheaper.
Finally, for gamers, ASUS ROG Strix G15 is also 37% off. That discount knocks it down from its usual perch around the $2000 mark to just $1257. When you consider the specs on offer here, from the Ryzen 7 processor to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics, that leaves it standing tall as a candidate for the best budget-friendly gaming laptop you can currently buy.
For those unswayed by any of the above, Huawei's Matebook range might also be worth consideration. While the company's reputation has taken a hit in recent years, the impressive hardware on offer with their discounted range of laptops may still be worth a look.
Coming in at $999, it's hard to complain too much about the 2K display, 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage found in the current Huawei MateBook 14.
