As we mentioned in our previous article, the countdown until this year’s Amazon Prime Day started and tech fans are already making wishlists with all the items they are looking forward to buying on July 15, when the madness begins. This year, Prime Day will be Prime Days, as the event will last for 48 hours. Therefore, you’ll have some extra chances to grab some of your favorite computer tech deals.
We’re expecting some great offers from Amazon through the next days. Some deals were already announced, giving us a hint on what we could see in the upcoming two weeks. And we have a feeling that the folks over at the Amazon warehouses have some pretty cool stuff ready for us!
For those of you who know that they want to grab some new tech on July 15, we’ve made a round-up list with some of the best computer tech deals the retailer has already announced and will continue to update as Prime Day 2019 promotions release more updates.
So, without much further ado, let’s see what Prime Day 2019 will bring us, shall we?
12″ Apple MacBook
MacBooks are amazing machines, but they aren’t exactly cheap. Still, Prime Day can be the best moment to get your first or a new one.
The 12” model – in all three colors, Gold, Space Gray, and Rose Gold – will be available for those who want an incredibly portable laptop, excellent for daily tasks and even office works. It’s worth mentioning that one of the main reasons behind this price is that the laptops are refurbished and certified by Apple, so there’s no reason to worry, as it will be just like a brand new one after the manufacturer’s team of experts took care of it.
With an amazing Retina Display, Intel M3 CPU, 8GB of RAM and 256GB PCI-E SSD, it’s not exactly a beast of a PC, but it’s more than enough for the regular user. Add the fact that it comes with an excellent OS, and you can benefit from one of the best deals on Prime Day 2019.
PS: This model is eligible for Apple’s upcoming operating system upgrade, macOS Catalina.
Razer Deathadder Elite
The Razer Deathadder Elite has been around for a while, but it’s still a top choice among gamers from all over the world. The price has been quite low for the past months, but on July 15, when Prime Day 2019 begins, you can find it with an even better price tag.
Amazon will offer a 25% discount for one of the best gaming mice out there, and it would be a real shame to miss it. It’s light, responsive, and comes with an incredible 16,000 dpi sensor, perfect for smooth moves during intense gaming sessions.
If you’re one of those gamers with an entire battle station built based on a theme color – green, for example – the Deathadder Elite can be a great addition to your setup, as it will match everything nicely, thanks to the integrated lighting. But don’t worry if you opted for other colors, as we’re talking about an RGB sensor here, able to ‘deliver’ 16,8 million color combinations.
Acer Predator XB321HK 32″
A gaming setup looks incomplete without a proper monitor, and the Acer Predator XB321HK is one of the models you should seriously consider, especially after checking out the ridiculously good price it’s going to be available for on Prime Day 2019.
First thing first, let’s not forget that we’re talking about a 4K 32” monitor, which usually doesn’t come for cheap. Well, on July 15 you will be able to get it with $300 off!
The XB321HK comes with an IPS panel, 4ms response time and it’s G-sync enabled. Add the fact that it features flicker-less technology, able to reduce screen flickering, so no more eye strain issues when spending long hours in front of your PC. It sounds like a pretty great deal.
Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD
Probably one of the best deals in terms of SSD you can currently find, the Samsung 860 EVO is optimized for everyday computing, while the 1TB capacity should be more than enough for the average user, whether it’s used with a desktop or laptop.
The 860 EVO can perform to sequential read speeds of up to 550 MB/s, thanks to the Intelligent TurboWrite technology, while the write speeds can go up to 520 MB/s. As for the TurboWrite buffer size, it received an upgrade, from 12GB to a whopping 78GB.
One feature that we really like is the so-called “boosted endurance”, which allows you to write ridiculous amounts of data – eight times more than on than the 850 EVO – on this solid-state drive, meaning that you can store and render even the most extensive 4K videos, as well as 3D data, used by the most recent apps.
Intel 660p Series 1TB SSD
This SSD is currently one of the best (and cheapest, on Prime Day 2019) upgrades you can make to your PC, we’ve spotted other great models available for a special price on July 15.
The 660p Series, from Intel, comes with a price tag of under $100 and it’s empowered by the manufacturer’s innovative QLC Technology, offering higher capacities at a lower cost. And by higher functions, we mean a data transfer rate of up to 1GB per second.
Finally, we should mention the form factor, because, for a lot of users, it’s one of the aspects they consider before making the purchase. To be more specific, this SSD rocks an M.2 80mm form factor, being perfect for using along with notebooks and even mobile computing.
Asus ROG Strix Hero
If you’re after a gaming laptop Prime Day 2019, it’s the perfect time to get one, considering that you’re going to find some great prices for some great machines, like the Asus ROG Strix Hero.
For a bit over $1,000, you’re getting a 15,6″ laptop, rocking a full HD resolution, as well as an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU under the hood, GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, as well as a storage combo, consisting in a 128GB SSD and a 1TB FireCuda SSHD.
The laptop is relatively slim and lightweight, while the Aura RGB keyboard and the already-traditional ROG design basically scream “gaming.” This is a deal worth checking out on July 15 or even earlier!
9.7″ Apple iPad 128GB
You can’t go wrong with an Apple iPad, as it can be the perfect device for daily tasks like checking emails, browsing the web, watching videos and even spending some time on social media. And the 9.7″ model can be a great choice for anybody who wants a tablet able to cover all these tasks.
On Prime Day 2019, the 2018 variant, with 128 gigs of internal storage, will be available in Amazon’s deal offer, so we have added it to our deals list.
Besides the 9.7″ Retina display, it comes with Apple’s A10 Fusion chip, an 8MP camera on the back, able to shoot full HD videos, paired with an 1.2MP front-facing unit, Apple Pencil capability and the Touch ID sensor for an additional security layer. You kind of understand why we’re saying that you can’t go wrong with such a tablet, right?
Echo Dot 3rd Gen
In 2019, you just can’t call yourself a real tech enthusiast without a smart speaker. And if you’re looking forward to joining this club, then what better way to do it than by getting yourself the 3rd iteration of the Amazon Echo Dot?
On this year’s Prime Day, the retail giant is offering the Echo Dot with a notable discount, making it one of the cheapest ways to an Alexa-powered speaker. For half of its usual price, you can get a device able to answer questions, control your smart devices play music, check the news and many more. And for us, this is a great example of Amazon Prime Day deal which one shouldn’t miss!
Speaking about playing music, you should know that this little guy can deliver a more than decent sound experience, considering its size! And as a side note, we’re really digging the fabric design, which adds a plus of style to the smart speaker, otherwise a very elegant presence in any room.
Microsoft Surface Laptop
The folks over at Microsoft did a pretty amazing job with their Surface laptop lineup, as most of them pack some serious power under the hood, being able to compete with models coming from manufacturers with more experience in this…field.
On Amazon Prime Day, you’ll be able to get a Core i5 version, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, thanks to an SSD, for an excellent price. You’ll also be getting an impressive battery life, able to deliver up to 14,5 hours of video playback, as well as pre-installed Windows and Microsoft Office.
One of the features that make the Microsoft Surface laptop stand out is the Alcantara fabric-covered keyword, which easily stands out wherever you are. Combine this with the Aluminum casing and you’ll have a really stylish device if you decide to splash some cash on Amazon Prime Day!
All-new Kindle Paperwhite
Presented as thinner, lighter and waterproof, the all-new Kindle Paperwhite can be your perfect travel companion this summer! But you know what’s the best thing about it? You can get it on Amazon Prime Day 2019 for an amazing price!
The e-reader gives you the possibility to adjust millions of books for the first three months for free, as you will also receive Kindle Unlimited for free and read them on the crisp 300 PPI glare-free display. Yes, you can read like real paper, even in bright sunlight.
Sure, the Kindle Paperwhite is not necessarily revolutionary, as the concept was introduced by Amazon a few years ago. Still, what makes the latest iteration of the device special is the fact that it’s water-resistant, meaning that you can relax reading at the beach, by the pool or even in your own bathroom, without having to worry about what could happen if some water would get on it.
Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB
This summer could be the best time for a PC upgrade, as Amazon Prime Day 2019 is bringing some of the best prices for hardware! We’ve talked about SSDs already, so let’s look at some great RAM upgrades, like Corsair’s Vengeance LPX 2x16GB 3200MHz set, with XMP 2.0 support.
Designed for high-performance overclocking and with a low-profile heat spreader design, made of pure aluminum, this RAM kit basically screams “performance”, having everything it takes to adjust to the fastest safe speed. It also features a small form factor, making it perfect for smaller cases or any setup with a reduced amount of internal space.
And because we’re suckers for a good looking setup, we were delighted to find that the Vengeance LPX 32GB is available in several colors, so you will definitely find one that matches your motherboard and the rest of the components! Or you can just pick your favorite color, your call.
