This might not be the best price on Apple's latest 13-inch MacBook Pro, but you're still saving on the amazing M1-powered laptop that launched last year. Apple's first attempt at producing its own processor has been a massive success, with the MacBook Pro helping the chip push itself even further with the addition of a fan for cooling. There's still the OLED touchbar at the keyboard, but the keyboard itself is also the latest iteration that does away with those terrible butterfly switches. It's one of the best thin and light laptops around.
The Razer Blade is as close as you can get to a gaming laptop with the profile of a MacBook, and even though it's due for a hardware refresh there's still some great deals on 2020 models. Just like this powerful Razer Blade 15 Base configuration, which comes equipped with an RTX 2070 Max-Q, a 10th-generation Intel Core i7 (6 Cores/ 12 Threads) CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. It also has a 4K OLED display. That should be more than enough horsepower for popular shooters like Apex Legends and Fortnite, while also providing enough processing grunt for mobile video rendering and editing.
Apple's latest 13-inch MacBook Air with its in-house M1 chip is on sale for $100 off at Amazon. This MacBook Air features an 8-core processor, 256GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM. It's listed as only $50 off, but you'll save an additional $50 at checkout. You can choose between Space Gray, silver, and gold models.
Asus is known to make some impressively thin and powerful laptops too, and this ZenBook Flip S 13 laptop is no exception to that rule. The near bezel-less display crams in a 4K display with an extremely impressive OLED panel that can display HDR content with up to 400 nits of brightness. That will come in handy with the laptops convertible design for content consumption, but when you want to get some work done you can equally depend on the 11th-generation Intel Core i7 CPU, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB SSD for storage. That's an impressive package in a small, and discounted, package.
Chromebooks are extremely popular choices for students and users who just need something to get through light workloads and word processing, but Samsung has managed to turn even the most modest of laptops into a premium piece of tech. The 13-inch Galaxy Chromebook comes with an AMOLED display, Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of SSD storage, which brings it ever closer to the entry specifications of ultrabooks. You will of course have to be comfortable with ChromeOS and its limitations, but if you're willing to pay a bit more this is one Chromebook that you'll keep around for a long time.
Dell's XPS 13 is one of the easiest ultrabooks to recommend. The XPS line has been consistently fantastic, with its stunning design, slim screen bezels, fantastic keyboard, and consistent performance. This model comes equipped with Intel's 11th-generation Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and Intel Iris Xe graphics. That makes it one of the few laptops that qualifies for Intel's Evo program, which lets you know you're getting some of the best performance on the market today.
Microsoft's Surface Laptops have been great go-to devices that strike a good balance of being both sleek and powerful. While the design has endured for multiple generations now, you're still getting a top-of-the-line keyboard, an accurate 13.5-inch touch display, and a gorgeous matte black aluminum chassis. Pair that with 8GB of RAM, an Intel Core-i5, and a slew of ports (that aren't just USB-C), and you've got a capable machine that can go anywhere with you.
If the Dell XPS 13 is just a bit too high for your budget but you like the performance it offers, then Dell's Inspiron range has become a great middle ground for exactly that. You get an Intel 11th-generation Core i7 CPU, 12GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and Intel Iris Xe graphics, which is almost on par with the above Dell XPS 13. But instead of just a 13-inch display, the Inspiron comes equipped with a 14-inch FHD touch display in a convertible design, which gives it a bit more flexibility if that's what you need.
One of Asus' more innovative laptops in recent times, the ZenBook Pro Duo fits not one, but two displays into a 15-inch body. The primary display is a stunning 4K OLED panel, with the secondary one situated above the keyboard for a range of productivity purposes. Even if you don't need the extra display space for more windows, you can turn it into a powerful sketchpad for more creative work. With $300 off its regular price on Prime Day, it's an enticing deal.
If you can't yet commit to ChromeOS, Samsung does have a range of great Windows laptops with its Galaxy Book Pro line. There are two models on offer this Prime day, a 13-inch and 15-inch. Both come with 11th-generation Intel CPUs (either Core i5 or Core i7 chips), 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. All of them come in the company's Mystic Silver, which looks fantastic, too.
This model of the ASUS ROG Strix Scar gaming laptop sports a rare 240Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time on its 15.6-inch 1080p IPS screen. To back up this high-end display, this laptop also rocks an RTX 2070 Super video card, an eight-core Intel Core i7-10875H CPU, 16GB of RAM, and an ultra-fast 1TB NVMe SSD--overall, these are impressive specs for competitive gamers. You can save $460 on this laptop during Prime Day sales.
