Today is the last chance to score a Prime Day laptop deal for anyone that’s going back to school soon, and everyone else who needs a new or more modern and powerful laptop that can keep up with the latest software and technologies in their job or personal life.
This year’s Prime Day discounts are much better than last year, and even includes some of the latest 2023 laptop models with the newest AMD or 13th gen Intel Core processors that are available for computers today.
Which means that these laptops and smaller notebooks are future proof for a couple of years.
The only thing to keep in mind is that sub $300 laptops just don’t cut it. Their performance is too low, and they are mainly just suited for reading and writing small documents.
So with that in mind, I’ll help our readers sort out the Prime Day laptop deals by their objective performance scores, using Geekbench 6 benchmarks.
For that reason, I’ve excluded laptops with single-core benchmark scores below 2000, even if they are on sale with prices between $800 to $1200 today. The laptops are sorted by price, starting with the cheapest Windows laptops on top.
