When it comes to laptops, we generally recommend finding a machine that suits your needs without exceeding your budget. That’s why we’ve put together our top recommendations for the best laptops for programming and the best laptops for hacking. There’s no doubt that many of these laptops will be reduced during Prime Day, so we did the work for you. Below, we’ve listed some of the best laptop Prime Day deals in 2023.

The early offers already started rolling in. As expected, Prime Day has already started with heavy discounts on gaming laptops. To help you find the best deals, we've already spotted several worthwhile early offers.

Prime Day Deals on Desktops

If you prefer desktops over laptops, don’t worry — there are a ton of desktop deals available too! Desktops are incredibly versatile and can be far more powerful than laptops while also being more affordable (at least sometimes). There are many prebuilt towers on Amazon, many of which are also on sale during Prime Day.

Desktops are fantastic investments as you can upgrade and replace parts as they age. You can pick the setup you need and use your machine for work and for play, as desktops are often more capable than laptops for gaming. Below, we’ve curated a list of some of the best Prime Day Deals on desktops this year.

This year, we're already seeing a discount on the HP Omen i7 Gaming Desktop. It falls from $2,499.99 during the early Prime Day sale. Check out the current price for today's discount.

Prime Day Deals on Software and Accessories

Laptops and desktops will always need software, operating systems, and essential accessories like keyboards, storage devices, and headphones. If you’ve been looking for deals on software and other useful accessories, you'll be pleased to know that Amazon has plenty available. Here are some of the best software and peripheral devices on sale during Prime Day. Take your chance to buy what you need while it’s discounted!

Let's start with a modern programming essential. That's right, in 2023, every programmer needs headphones! We found Prime Day discounts on Aftershokz for those who like bone-conduction technology. The sale includes their OpenRun and OpenComm styles. 

Of course, not everyone wants to hear the sounds of an office while they code. That's why we also looked for discounted on-ear and over-ear headphones. We found discounted Beats headphones as a major draw this year. The promotion includes on-ear and in-ear styles. Check out their current prices in the Prime Day Beats sale section. Note that we expect some of these to sell out pretty quickly.

Or check out these Sony WH-CH520 Headphones, for example. We caught them at $38 during today's Prime Day sale. That beats any other price we found online.

And if you really want to turn any environment into your own programming sanctuary, check out the award-winning Bose QuietComfort 45, which you can currently pick up with a 30% discount at $229. This is an impressive deal for a top-of-the-line pair of noise-canceling headphones.

As a programmer, you'll always need a reliable storage device drive to protect your data. And in the era of SSDs, one of the most reliable data storage manufacturers is Samsung. That's why we were really impressed by the 53% discount on the 4TB Samsung T7 Shield portable SSD. With speeds approaching 1050MB/s, this is a fantastic deal on a particularly robust SSD.

This is a solid deal when you consider the built-in VPN and AiMesh compatibility.
