If you're looking for a great secondary laptop, or perhaps a main back to school laptop that can handle loads of tasks, we've got the best pre-Prime Day laptop deal for you. And it's not even from Amazon! Right now you can get the brilliant all-rounder Dell Inspiron, 15.6-inch Touch laptop, down from $599.99 to $399.99 - saving you $200 over at Best Buy (opens in new tab)

This isn't a laptop for high-end digital creatives (see below for non-Prime Day laptop deals on more powerful machines). But with its Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD storage, this is a perfect choice if you're a student looking for an all-rounder laptop that will serve you for day-to-day work, and also provide a decent 15.6-inch display for when you want to watch films. What's more, it's a touch laptop that runs Windows 11... and all for under $400! 

And Best Buy has even bigger savings on HP and Microsoft laptops. It has the versatile HP Envy x360 2-in-1 hybrid laptop-tablet with 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD reduced by $350 to $699.99 (opens in new tab). Or if you prefer a 15.6in screen, it has $300 off a 15.6in HP Envy 2-in-1, now $729.99 (opens in new tab).

See the details of these deals and more below. And if you're holding out for a Mac rather than a Windows laptop, make sure you see our guide to the best Apple Prime Day deals, which will include savings on MacBooks.
