Should you buy a Windows laptop on Prime Day?

One of the great things about Windows laptops is that you're spoiled for choice. Whether you want a cheap laptop, a gaming laptop, or a laptop for school, there are several great options to choose from. With so many PCs available in every category, there's almost always one on sale, and that's certainly the case on Prime Day.With Prime Day spanning over two days, there will be plenty of laptops that go on sale from a long list of manufacturers. Some of the sales will sell out quickly, so you'll want to jump on any deal that you think is an especially good bargain on a Windows laptop.$1,650 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Even though this year's Prime Day deals happen a few months later than usual, the two-day sale is still a great time to buy a Windows laptop. The best Prime Day laptop deals will include devices across a wide range of categories, so it's worth keeping an eye out for deals no matter what type of laptop you're hunting for.

With the laptop space crowded with good devices, companies often try to stand out with good deals. With more people working from home and studying from home than ever, you can bet that laptop makers will want to get their devices into people's hands.

Last year, we saw deals from Microsoft, LG, Acer, ASUS, and more. With such a long list of manufacturers jumping in on the Prime Day deals, there are laptops of every shape and size on sale. Whether you want a slim 2-in-1, a beefy gaming laptop, or an Ultrabook to help you get work done, there will be a Prime Day deal for you.

Look out for ways to upgrade your current Windows laptop

If you already have a laptop, and you prefer to tinker with it by upgrading its internals, you'll want to keep an eye out for the best Prime Day deals on PC parts. Processors, graphics cards, RAM, and storage all frequently go on sale on Prime Day. It's a great time to pick up a part to speed up your laptop or replace a component that's showing its age.

This Dell XPS 13 7390 is a year old at this point, but it's still a good laptop. It has a beautiful InfinityEdge display that's available in up to 4K and plenty of ports to help you get work done.

Should you wait until Black Friday?

Windows laptops are on sale frequently, but sales don't always last, and the same sale might not pop up again. If you find a deal that you think is worth it on Prime Day, it's probably best to grab it rather than hoping for a better deal on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
