The best Windows laptops of 2024: Put these models on your Prime Day shopping list

  • July 11, 2024

The best Windows laptops run an impressive gamut, from 2-in-1s with new Intel Core Ultra hardware to dual-display stunners and AI-ready gaming stations. (Some of them, dare we say, will tempt even the most devoted Macbook disciples.) Users who need a new laptop for everyday productivity, creativity, or entertainment have no shortage of options. And that’s for better or worse.

To help you pick out your next PC from the crowded Windows market, we’ve broken out our best laptops rundown into this separate guide to the best Windows machines of 2024. All of these laptops have been rigorously hands-on tested by the Mashable team for performance and build quality, and we stand by their value — or at least think they’re worth finding on sale.

Speaking of: Amazon’s flagship summer Prime Day sale is set for July 16 and 17. For Windows users looking to save on an upgrade, the 48-hour event should get marked on your calendar. It’s not because Amazon itself offers amazing deals on Windows laptops during the sale, though we do sometimes encounter cheap gaming machines there. No, it’s because Prime Day motivates other tech retailers and computer brands to run their own competing sales.

The one to watch in particular will be Best Buy’s Black Friday in July savings event from July 15 to 17. Per a Best Buy rep, this will be its “biggest sale of the summer” with “a variety of deals on the latest tech,” including laptops. We’re keeping a close eye on Best Buy’s sizable lineup of new Copilot+ PCs, so stay tuned.
