HP Victus 15 $750 at Amazon
The moment I finish writing up one great gaming laptop deal, another one catches my eye! HP’s Victus 15 is enjoying a full third off the retail price for Prime Day 2022, making this the cheapest it’s ever sold for.
With an RTX 3050 and Intel Alder Lake processor, the HP Victus 15 is a strong choice for anyone who wants to game with the best of them but also needs an effective computer for work. Robust build quality and a reserved aesthetic with a distinct lack of rainbow lighting means that this gaming laptop looks like it belongs in an office or at home.
MSI GF63 $800 at Amazon
It’s time for a spicy gaming laptop deal, y’all. MSI’s GF63 is on sale – already a solid choice for mid-range gaming laptop if you really want an RTX 3000-series GPU, since this baby packs a 3050 Ti and Intel Core i5 processor. At $200 off, it’s a good deal on a laptop that should last you for years.
A nice big 15.6-inch screen with a 144Hz refresh rate makes this a great pick for esports games, where framerates mean everything. Really though, it’s a competent all-rounder of a gaming laptop that manages to be a bit thinner and lighter than most of the crowd – considering how hefty some gaming machines are, I consider this a huge bonus.
If you check out the Amazon store page, you’ll see that a version with an upgraded i7 processor is also available with the same $200 discount. Unless you’re planning on playing lots of CPU-bound strategy games, we’d say you can comfortably stick to the cheaper version.
Happy Prime Day, everyone! Computing Editor Christian Guyton signing on, with one of my personal recommendations for anyone looking for a shiny new laptop on this blessed day.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i might not be the most heavily-discounted laptop on sale this time around, but this deal is still the best price it’s ever seen, and frankly? It’s worth it at MSRP. I love this Chromebook; it’s got that sweet 360-degree hinge for swapping into tablet mode, but even in laptop mode it’s a joy to use thanks to the sturdy keyboard and 1080p touchscreen.
8GB of RAM, a proper 128GB SSD, and an Intel Core i3 processor mean that the IdeaPad Flex 5i stands above more budget Chromebooks using Intel Celeron or MediaTek CPUs, so performance here is sound. At $360, this is one of the best Chromebook deals I’ve seen on Prime Day 2022.
HP Chromebook 14a-nd0001sa £150 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
If you want a super-cheap laptop deal in the UK, then a Chromebook really is a great choice as well. This HP Chromebook is now just £150, and is an ideal buy if you’re looking for something to work on while sitting on the sofa. It’s price and ease of use also makes it ideal for students and kids, and the long battery life means this will go throughout a whole school day with ease.
Today’s best Prime Day laptop deal in the US for bargain hunters
Let’s get straight into it with the best ultra-cheap laptop deal available right now in the US.
For just $135 you can get this great Chromebook. I know, I know, it’s not a Windows 11 laptop, but to be honest, you’re just not going to get a good Windows laptop for less than $200. Sure, there will be offers, but these will be for under-powered devices that you’ll end up regretting buying.
But Chromebooks like the IdeaPad 3 11 are great little performers for rock-bottom prices.
