Amazon’s Prime Big Deals Day (or Prime Day part 2, if you will), is underway. And while there are discounts on thousands of items including smartphones, tablets, headphones, smart TVs, and more, it can be a bit tough to sift through everything to separate halfway decent deals from… well, everything else.

So if you happen to be in the market for a laptop, 2-in-1 PC, or mini PC, Liliputing here to help with some of the best deals I could find.

Windows Laptops & 2-in-1s

Keeping with Liliputing’s focus on thin and light computers, I’m primarily highlighting notebooks with smaller screens and/or large-screen laptops that are still extraordinarily lightweight for their size. 

I also weeded out notebooks with processors that are more than a year or two old, although it’s worth keeping in mind that two of the notebooks listed below have AMD Ryzen 7020U series “Mendocino” chips with the same Zen 2 CPU cores as AMD’s older Ryzen 5000U series chips, but with newer RDNA 2-based integrated graphics. And the Intel Core i3-N305 processor is an Alder Lake-N chip with 8 12th-gen Intel Efficiency CPU cores, but no Performance cores. 

In other words, there’s a reason the laptops with Mendocino and Alder Lake-N chips are so much cheaper than the others in this list.

Chromebooks

There are surprisingly few great Chromebook deals on sale. While there are also a couple of Asus and Samsung models on sale, they tend to have older processors and fewer years of guaranteed software updates from Google.

But there are a few models worth considering.

MacBooks

Apple’s 2020 MacBook Air 13 inch laptop with an M1 processor might be a few years old, but it’s still a pretty good machine if you’re looking to balance performance, portability, and silent operation. And it’s on sale for one of the lowest prices I’ve seen. 

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for something with a little more performance, the 2023 MacBook Air 15.3″ laptop and 2022 MacBook Pro 13″ with Apple M2 chips are both on sale for $1050 and up.

Mini PCs

For this list of mini PCs, I did include some models with chips that are a little older, because while it’s impressive how much performance you can squeeze out of a cheap, low-power 2023 Alder Lake-N chip like the Intel N100, you still get more performance from a 2021 AMD Ryzen chip like the Ryzen 5500U.

One thing to keep in mind about these mini PC is that the prices seem to fluctuate quite a bit, even during Amazon’s Prime Big Deals Days sale, so the prices listed below may be subject to change.

    1. I get the feeling that if you buy that, you’re really going to have a bad time. It’s not just the specs, but the cheap materials and construction in the shell. An N200 would be just fine in something built like my x380 Yoga, given the ability to use 8gb or more of RAM and nvme.
      But that’s a degree of min-maxing that no one seems to be willing to try, even as a CPU option.
