Amazon Prime Day is one of the most highly anticipated shopping events of the year. Each year, Prime Day rivals Black Friday with once-a-year low prices on all kinds of gadgets and tech devices. You can prepare for Prime Day deals by searching online for news about which items are expected to see the best savings.

On this year’s Prime Day, you can expect plenty of laptops to see price drops and discounts. Each year, Amazon marks down a variety of laptops at all price points, and you can score significant savings. You can search online today to learn which laptops might see sales and discounts during this year’s event.


If you’re ready to start planning what you’ll buy on Amazon Prime Day 2020, here’s what you need to know.

When is Amazon Prime Day?

Typically, Amazon Prime Day is held on the anniversary of Amazon’s founding: July 15.

In the days leading up to July 15, Amazon will unveil deals. In recent years, Prime Day has lasted through the end of the day on July 16, giving Prime shoppers more time to score deals and discounts. However, the biggest and best deals will usually be available only on Prime Day itself.

For 2020, Prime Day is a bit different. Amazon didn’t hold its traditional sale on July 15, and it’s uncertain when the big event might happen. It’s believed that Prime Day is postponed until October, but Amazon has kept quiet on whether or not this is true.1

Since 2020 is heading into its final months, Prime Day will certainly be in the fall or winter — if it even happens at all. You can keep an eye out for news about the official date by searching online.

Laptop Deals You’re Likely to Find on Prime Day

One of the most exciting products that you’ll see get steep discounts on Amazon Prime Day is laptops. Amazon always boasts a large selection of laptops from popular brands. Therefore, these computers typically see great markdowns when the big sale arrives.

While much is still unknown and uncertain about this year’s event, it’s likely that laptops will once again be one of the most heavily discounted items. Based on previous years’ sales, we can predict which laptop models might be offered as great deals.

If you’re hoping to score an affordable laptop on Prime Day, you’ll want to keep your eye on the following models. They might be marked down or offered at special pricing.

Dell XPS 13

The Dell XPS 13 is one of the most popular laptops right now – so don’t be surprised if this laptop sees discounts on Prime Day. Amazon often marks down some of the biggest laptops of the year, so the company may do so with this Dell model.

There are many different versions of the Dell XPS 13 to choose from. Any of the following models might see a Prime Day sale:

These Dell XPS 13 laptops offer impressive resolution and brilliant displays. Touchscreen models give you even more flexibility and convenience. Plus, you can choose the memory and screen size to suit your needs.

Chromebooks tend to see the biggest discounts out of all types of laptops on Prime Day. In the past, shoppers were able to score all kinds of different Chromebooks at low prices on Prime Day, and it’s expected that this will be true for 2020 too.2

You’ll want to keep an eye on some of the latest Chromebooks, like those by HP and Acer. For example, the HP x360 2-in-1 14-Inch FHD Touchscreen Chromebook, which retails for $615.99, is a budget-friendly laptop that may be marked down even further on Prime Day.3 Another laptop that might see discounts is the Acer Chromebook Spin 11 Convertible Laptop, which typically sells for $390.4

Apple MacBook Pro

Apple’s beloved MacBook Pro is always a big seller on Prime Day. This laptop rarely goes on sale. Moreover, Apple tends to offer only the smallest of discounts on other big shopping holidays like Black Friday. But during Prime Days of years past, the MacBook Pro has seen some discounts.

So, for 2020, Apple fans who want to score a discounted MacBook Pro will want to keep an eye out. There are likely two Apple MacBook Pro models that will see potential discounts: the 13-inch and 16-inch.

Make sure to check for discounts on the newest MacBook Pro models as well as last year’s models, as either could see sales on Prime Day 2020.
