These are the best Prime Day deals on laptops, PCs, monitors, and more!
Amazon's Prime Day sale is expected to arrive in under a month and the e-commerce giant is already lining up its (digital) ducks to offer spectacular value in what many brand as Amazon's better version of Black Friday in the summer.
Some of the biggest beneficiaries of this are Amazon's Prime members who are rewarded by Amazon for their subscriptions by offering significantly better value for their money at this time of the year in particular. That being said if you aren't sold yet on Amazon Prime, check the link below to sign up for a free trial for Amazon Prime that also allows you to enjoy Prime Day in all its glory.
Some of these deals are exclusive to Prime members, but don't fret! New members can try Prime for 30 days, free.
Amazon has always been a hub for tech gifts for your family or for yourself and the same is true if you are hunting for PCs, Laptops, or simply upgrades to your existing system such as CPUs, GPUs, and/or storage and memory as well as monitors, making it an important and often, all-encompassing marketplace for PC hardware.
Given Amazon's prior strong showings in this department, we expect the e-commerce giant to be more dominant in 2023 with many more options in play in terms of both Prime Day Deals and lightning deals on offer compared to the previous year.
Here are some of the best early deals you can grab before Prime Day:
The MSI Pulse GL66 15.6″ FHD 144Hz Gaming Laptop is one of the cheapest 12th generation Intel Core i7 laptops you can get paired to an RTX 3070 with plenty of power under the hood squared off with 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512GB SSD in tow. At the Early Prime Day Deal price, it is Black Friday in the summer all over again, but you get a powerful gaming PC masquerading as a gaming laptop instead!
The MSI Stealth 15M 15.6″ FHD 144Hz Gaming Laptop is a gaming-centric laptop that focuses on its weight and dimensions more than the Pulse above. As a result, it offers similar storage, display, and memory specs but cuts down to a slower 12th-generation core i7 processor and a smaller RTX 3060 GPU to achieve its lofty goals. At $1000, it is still a very tantalizing purchase for people looking to get their first gaming laptop or upgrade from their current productivity-centric one to a more powerful one that can game on the side
The Acer Swift X SFX14-42G-R607 Creator Laptop is a well-blended creator-centric laptop that offers decent productivity performance coupled with a discrete GPU from Nvidia housed in a portable 14-inch frame that belies its potential for both, work and play for a laptop in its weight class.
The MSI Pulse GL66 15.6" FHD 144Hz Gaming Laptop is a well-rounded laptop that offers considerable gaming power in a 15.6' chassis while throwing in fast PCI-E gen 4 memory, a 144Hz screen, and Wi-Fi 6 into the mix. While the battery life isn't something to write home about, we feel that is more than an adequate compromise on a laptop that is deeply discounted versus the competition and can play any game out in 2023 at a reasonable frame rate on its FHD screen.
The MSI Stealth 15M 15.6" FHD 144Hz Gaming Laptop is an excellent choice if you are into casual gaming but the laptop you need must prioritize portability. With a decent amount of power under the hood and a slimmer figure than most competing gaming laptops, the Stealth 15M is a great choice for gamers on the go looking for acceptable performance in a smaller frame than most other gaming laptops.
The Acer Swift X SFX14-42G-R607 Creator Laptop is an excellent laptop for creators on a budget or users who need a laptop they can use for productivity purposes without breaking the bank in 2023. Trading at an impressive sub-$300 discount, it offers significant amounts of CPU and GPU power for its form factor, coupled with a standard 512GB SSD storage option and 16GB of DDR4 memory.
The Ryzen 7 processor and RTX 3050TI GPU pack a mean punch, more so because of the size of the laptop which makes it considerably better than most of its peers. Currently, the Swift X offers a unique blend of value and performance for creators that we feel is unique compared to all the other options we looked at.
The Razer Blade 15 Gaming Laptop packs an enormous punch, hosting an Intel Core i7 12th gen 14 core processor, coupled with 16GB of DDR5 memory and an RTX 3070TI that should allow you to comfortably play all modern games with ease. Packing an impressive 360Hz screen that competitive gamers will appreciate along with 1TB of NVME storage, the Razer Blade 15 trades at an impressive discount, making it one of, if not the best gaming laptop deals you can find on Amazon right now
The Apple MacBook Pro’s 2023 refresh features the new M2 Pro processor which has a better CPU and significantly better GPU performance rounding off what is already an excellent laptop offering with more power under the hood. And at $250 off MSRP for the space grey variant with 512GB of storage, a 10-core CPU, and a 16 Core GPU, this seems to be a deal you would want to look at twice, especially if you are in the market for a MacBook before Prime Day.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i 16″ 2.5K Touchscreen Laptop is an excellent work-centric laptop that offers an impressive high-resolution screen, a 12th generation Intel Core i7 U-series processor, and 16GB of memory coupled with a 512GB SSD on offer. With a low retail price coupled with a 5% discount code on offer
Until Prime Day kicks in full force, two deals that we feel are worth checking out if you are looking for a gaming laptop or a new MacBook are the deeply discounted Razer Blade 15 laptop which is a whopping $1200 off MSRP, and the Apple MacBook Pro 14' that we rarely see on sale pushing a discount that sees it offer a significantly better price point at $1750 on Amazon.
The Razer Blade 15 offers excellent gaming performance, an excellent 360Hz display that will leave even the most ardent competitive players happy, and a sleek, portable design that eclipses most of its competition in terms of aesthetics while the MacBook Pro 14' is a great gift to give to family or to spoil yourself, packing the newer M2 Pro processor, trading at a rare discount on Amazon, making it a no-brainer if you are in the market for a MacBook currently in the sub $2k price bracket.
If you are looking for an excellent X360 laptop for work or casual use but are unwilling to push beyond a certain budget range, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i is an excellent place to start your search. While it isn't an early Prime Day deal, it is worth checking out if you are in the market for a cheap, yet reliable laptop for work, casual use, or simply as a gift to someone else.
Trading at an impressive discount for a renewed SKU that offers a full-fledged laptop experience that sees most of its direct competition trade around the $1k mark, the IdeaPad doesn't really have much competition when it comes to pricing in its own weight class for a laptop and the gorgeous display is just icing on the cake if you are looking for a spare work laptop currently.
Note: If you feel that you need extra GPU cores and/or SSD storage for your Mac, the 1TB variant of the MacBook Pro is on sale for $2200, offering a slightly better $300 discount over MSRP.
The Samsung 990 Pro is the fastest PCI-E Gen 4 SSD that Samsung has to offer, and it comes with a new, bold design on the heatsink that should blend in with most gaming PCs and allow your PlayStation 5 to use it optimally. Trading at an impressive discount over MSRP, the Samsung 990 Pro is pretty much the maximum performance you can eke out on most modern gaming PCs, and for $180 for 2 TB of storage, this is a steal.
The Samsung 990 Pro is the best in the business for high-performance SSDs and with a great-looking heatsink. It's not shy to flaunt its performance either. Offering 2TB of high-speed storage and high reliability, backed by a comprehensive 5-year warranty, the Samsung 990 Pro is a premium option for your storage needs, but available at a deep discount thanks to it being part of the early Prime Day sales.
The KOORUI 27 Inch 144Hz QHD Gaming Monitor is an excellent value purchase, offering QHD resolutions with 144Hz refresh rates at a price that is unbeaten in terms of value. The Prime Day discount that sees it pushed at another 12% off makes it an even better deal to look at for a gaming monitor on a budget in 2023.
The KOORUI 27 Inch 144Hz QHD Gaming Monitor is an excellent gaming monitor that offers a QHD resolution on a 27-inch frame with 144Hz refresh rates also in play, making it a great addition to your gaming setup without burning a hole in your wallet. The fact that it is discounted another 12% as an early Prime Day deal makes it an even better offer with astounding value for a budget gaming upgrade this summer.
The MSI Ventus 3X Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is a mid-range GPU based on Nvidia’s Ampere architecture that comes in a triple-fan configuration to keep temperatures low as it goes on sale at a deep discount before Amazon’s Prime Day sales kick in full force
The MSI RTX 4070 Ventus 3X 12G OC is a mid-range RTX 4000 series GPU that offers RTX 3080-esque performance with slightly better value for money thanks to its stellar DLSS 3 performance. Currently trading at a sub $60 discount over MSRP for an RTX 4070 before Prime Day makes it an excellent buy if you are looking to upgrade this summer
The MSI Ventus 3X Gaming GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is an excellent gaming graphics card that is able to run all modern titles at acceptable frame rates at FHD and 2K resolutions with ease. With 8GB of high-speed GDDR6X memory coupled with a powerful GPU core, the RTX 3060TI is extremely relevant for gamers and productivity professionals on a budget alike and the early Prime Day Deal discount makes it even more appealing as a proposition for gamers and creators alike.
The MSI RTX 4070 Ventus 3X 12G OC offers 12GB of fast GDDR6X memory and excellent DLSS 3 performance as it leverages the Ada Lovelace architecture to deliver excellent Ray Traced performance at a sub $600 price point.
The biggest qualm that users have had to date with the RTX 4070 has been its price point, with many pointing out that it's pricing is too close to what an RTX 3070TI or an RTX 3080 goes for with similar rasterization performance.
Amazon's early Prime Day pricing on the Ventus solves this more or less, offering a nice 10% off with a $60 coupon that effectively makes it the cheapest RTX 4070 to date at the time of writing. Having a tri-fan, dual-slot overclocked variant at a nice discount isn't something anyone can scoff at, especially given GPU prices in 2023.
The Intel Core i7-12700K is the last-gen Intel Core i7 processor from Intel that packs an impressive 12 cores and excellent single-core performance, trading at an impressive discount on Amazon for a processor that is compatible with both Intel’s 12th and 13th generation CPUs
The Ryzen 5 7600X outperforms AMD’s last-generation gaming king, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, and it does so at a deep discount allowing you to pass on the savings towards a better AM5 motherboard and cheap DDR5 memory to build a new gaming PC in 2023
Intel's last generation Core i7 12700K is currently trading at an impressive discount relative to its MSRP, making it a great upgrade to pick up with an upgrade path to the Intel Core i9 13900K down the line if you are inclined. With support for both Intel's 12th and 13th gen motherboard chipsets (6XX series & 7XX series), there is no shortage of motherboard options you can turn to if you get the last generation mainstream performance CPU from Intel as part of your new PC upgrade this summer.
AMD's hexacore Ryzen 5 7600X is an excellent processor for gaming and light productivity use, leveraging its powerful and efficient Zen 4 cores to perform better at games than AMD's last gaming flagship, the octa-core Ryzen 7 5800X3D, making it a no-brainer budget gaming CPU purchase for anyone looking to go AMD this time around for gaming.
The higher-end, current-gen Intel and AMD processors do not show yet on early Prime Day deals, but that may change as Prime Day moves nearer in the coming days.
Amazon's Prime Day is a yearly event or a sale that goes live for its regular Prime members that have subscribed to its monthly or annual subscription of value-added Prime memberships that offers free, fast shipping for all products sold by Amazon, as well as Video & Music streaming making it an excellent, well-rounded package.
Prime Day will have discounts from Amazon that meet or beat some of its Black Friday offerings and is one of the biggest shopping events of the year in the US, backed by Amazon's massive e-commerce network and delivered swiftly thanks to the Prime 2-Day promise to your doorstep at a price that makes it astounding value for what it offers.
