If we’re making some suggestions

All of the above Prime Day laptop deals will save you a good chunk of change on a great laptop, but you might still be wondering where to turn.

We can’t help but recommend saving a bunch of money on a Microsoft Surface Pro 6, which is about the best 2-in-1 device you can buy right now. Its convertible design means you can use it as a tablet or as a notebook with Type Cover attached, and it has the hardware inside to keep up with a regular day’s work. The battery will last through a full workday, the touch display will wow you, an IR camera for Windows Hello adds security, and its premium construction makes it worth every penny, especially at the discounted price.

If you’d rather go with a traditional notebook, the LG gram 15Z990 is an outstanding choice. Thanks to a magnesium alloy chassis it weighs in at less than 2.5 pounds, yet it packs in the performance and features to make it your daily driver. The backlit keyboard is comfortable and includes a number pad, the Precision touchpad is smooth and responsive, and a fingerprint reader built into the power button adds extra security. The 15.6-inch FHD display has great color, and you get plenty of ports for accessories.
