It’s a good day to be alive. I feel like I’ve been waiting for Prime Day all year, because… I have. If there’s one thing that’s going to make you want to replace your computer ASAP, it’s when it’s being glitchy on Prime Day — a real Catch-22 for the ages. Whether you've been thinking about upgrading your tech, or the idea just occurred to you, the year's best computer and laptop deals on Prime Day are sure to get you shopping.
I recently upgraded my laptop after my almost decade-old model, which had to be hooked up to an external keyboard, finally stopped turning on. (Word to the wise: don’t have two-and-a-half glasses of wine, then decide to Windex your keyboard.) Let me tell you, there are few things as liberating as a brand new computer. With its blank desktop and empty trash can, the possibilities for cruising Twitter and adding things to your online shopping cart without ever checking out seem endless. You know when's a good time to actually check out? Yep, you guessed it, Amazon Prime Day.
So what are you waiting for? Familiarize yourself with a few Prime Days hacks and read on for some of the best laptop and computer deals you won't regret cashing in on.
