We always want to help you find the best deals and give you the tools you need to advance your programming career. To help you shop, we’ve combed through the Prime Day deals to find some of the very best available during the sale.

For example, we found some stellar prices on Beats headphones, and there's an impressive Prime Day deal on Samsung, Google Pixel, and Lenovo tablets with up to 37% off the range.

These can be excellent tools for reviewing code or programming on the go, plus there are the added benefits you get with tablets, like watching movies, browsing the internet, and gaming.

Prime Day Deals on Laptops

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, and the early offers have 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 did the work for you and have listed some of the best laptop Prime Day deals in 2024.

For example, this Alienware X16 gaming laptop pictured below is already on sale for 20% off. This is the ideal dual-purpose laptop for programming and gaming, with a 16-inch QHD display, Intel Core i9, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080.

And if you're in the market for a laptop that can double up for coding and gaming, we'd highly recommend checking out the ultra-thin Razer Blade 14, which is currently available with a massive 44% discount! 

With an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, 14" QHD screen, and 16GB DDR5 RAM, not to mention a CNC Aluminum case and Chroma RGB keyboard, it's an incredible machine.

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 lots of 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 28% discount on the HP Omen i7 Gaming Desktop.

With an Intel Core i7-13700KF, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Graphics, this powerful gaming rig falls from $2,499.99 during the early Prime Day sale. Check out the current price for today's discount.

Prime Day Deals on Peripherals & Accessories

Laptops and desktops will always need 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 2024, 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, with discounts of 30% or more. 

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, with discounts of up to 50% for their on-ear and in-ear styles in the Prime Day Beats sale section. 

A great example is the Beats Solo3, which has a whopping 50% discount and a price tag of less than $100. 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.

You can also find similar discounts on in-hear headphones, including the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II at less than $200 thanks to a 29% discount. These are a great way to get class-leading noise canceling without the added heat of wearing over-ear headphones.

When it comes to in-ear headphones, one of the best options for Apple users is, of course, the Apple AirPods. If you've spent any time using them, you'll know just how seamlessly they work with all of your Apple devices. I still have mine, and I love them!

That's why we're so impressed by the 24% discount on the Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) with Active Noise Cancelling, bringing the price down to less than $185 this Prime Day.

Need a keyboard upgrade? An important piece of the modern programming setup, we found dozens of Prime Day discounts for computer accessories. One popular style is the Havit Mechanical Keyboard, which has dropped 31% to less than $35.

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 impressed by the 19% discount on the 4TB Samsung T7 Shield portable SSD.

With speeds approaching 1050MB/s, this is a fantastic deal on a particularly robust SSD.
