Amazon's Prime Day laptop deals are here and we're seeing major price cuts on everything from high performance gaming PCs and creative workstations to Chromebook deals that are going so low the prices are nearly in double digits.

It's been a tough couple of years for computer inventories around the world, and the resulting price inflation has made people a lot more conscious of their budgets, especially when it comes to new technology purchases like laptops. That's what makes Prime Day and Black Friday so special, since they're the two times during the year when you have the opportunity to get the most value on major purchases with your budget.

That's why we're pulling together the best Prime Day laptop deals we can find to help you spot the laptop you want at a great price.

Right now, Amazon has all the best laptop deals we've seen so far, but the Prime Day event is still developing, and other retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, and more are all running sales right now to try to ride the wave of energy around Prime Day and cash in. We've seen a bunch of those too and we'll be bringing them to you as well, because sometimes the best Amazon Prime Day laptop deal isn't on Amazon at all.

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.

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.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i: $430 $360 at Amazon
A more premium Chromebook equipped with a 13.3-inch touchscreen and a robust 360-degree hinge for hybrid laptop-tablet modes, the IdeaPad Flex 5i is one of Lenovo's best Chrome devices. It's all powered by an Intel Core i3 processor and 8GB of RAM, with 128GB of local storage.View Deal

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.

MSI GF63 $800 at Amazon

MSI GF63: $1000 $800 at Amazon
Save $200 - At 20% off, this is one of the best deals on RTX-powered gaming laptops this Prime Day. The MSI GF63 is thinner and lighter than the average gaming laptop, but it still packs plenty of power for 1080p gaming with an RTX 3050 Ti, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD.View Deal

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.
