Amazon Prime Day is here, and if you're looking for a cheap laptop to go back to school or college with, then today might be a good day to buy one.

Amazon is offering a range of laptops at discounted prices – there are offers on brands such as HP, ASUS, Huawei, Dell and Lenovo, on everything from day-to-day laptops ideal for browsing the web all the way through to more serious gaming laptops. 

The majority of these deals are available for Prime Day members only (sign up to Prime (opens in new tab) if you're not one). For more deals available via Prime and beyond, see our best Apple Prime Day deals roundup, or our Nintendo Switch live blog.
