Amazon Prime Day best laptop deals: $600 off Razer Blade 15 gaming laptop, plus savings on Asus, Microsoft, HP and more

2020’s Amazon Prime Day deals mix includes significant savings on tablets and laptops, and many of these discounts will be felt right up to Black Friday and into the holiday season. The number of students and employees now working from home has seen increased demand for everyone to have their own device, and the number of machines on offer has kept up.

Amazon’s Prime Day line-up of discounts for 2020 includes savings on gaming laptops, a two-in-one from HP, and even a dual-screen pc from Asus. It’s still early days though, so don’t fret if none of these machines are quite right — we expect more laptops and tablets to go on sale this week with offers to come from Newegg, Walmart and Best Buy. 

We’ll keep this list up to date with the latest from Amazon and others.

Some people even flew through Hurricane Laura as it happened in the game.
