Keeping up with the latest developments in technology can sometimes be an expensive process - which is why Amazon Prime Day is such a wonderful period. For a couple of days every Summer, Amazon unleashes a barrage of deals across its storefront, and this usually includes a number of significant discounts on various items of technology.
This year, there’s offers on everything from laptops and smartphones to monitors and storage devices, and we’ve rounded up our picks of the best discounts to help you grab the biggest savings. We haven’t personally tested all the items in the list, but these deals have been hand-chosen by our experts, and they’re all from trusted and reliable tech manufacturers, so you can buy with confidence that you’re getting a good offer. These offers, unless otherwise stated, will all finish at midnight on 13 July, so you’d better be quick.
Best Amazon Prime Day laptop deals
Our top choice from the laptop deals in this year’s Amazon Prime Day festivities is the Lenovo IdeaPad 3, which boasts a Ryzen 5 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD, all wrapped up in an attractive 17in package. Even better, a discount of more than 40% means it’s available for just $350.
Best Amazon Prime Day storage deals
It may be something of a niche product (even by normal storage standards) but we really can’t get over the massive 55% price cut on the 14TB WD Red Plus. This enormous hard drive is build for NAS deployments in businesses, but if you need to add significant amounts of capacity to your array, then $210 for 14TB is a deal that’s hard to turn down.
