Need a gaming laptop but don’t want to spend thousands of dollars? Well, that’s where this Asus notebook comes in, delivering an eight-core 16-thread Ryzen 7 CPU (4800H), 8GB of RAM, and an Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU. Sure, it doesn’t have the latest Nvidia graphics, but the RTX 2060 still delivers a ton of power for VR and AAA games. Other notable specs include a 512GB SSD, and a 15.6-inch FHD screen at 60Hz. All in all, you’ll be paying $800 for the laptop, knocking $200 off the original price.

The retail chain has also slashed the price of the 12TB Western Digital external hard drive, dropping from $279.99 all the way to $174.99. This external drive packs USB 3.0 support and is powered by an external adapter rather than via your computer’s USB port. In any event, 12TB should be plenty for your media server, gaming library, or as a general local backup solution for all your devices.

Laptops starting at $119

Best Buy is offering laptops that start at just $119 for its Prime Day event in addition to the deals already highlighted above. This makes a variety of entry-level and midrange laptops more accessible than ever. You’ll find basic AMD and Intel Celeron processors onboard, and most of the laptops have smaller 11.6-inch to 13.3-inch displays. It’s true that this deal is more of a teaser right now, but we’ll add some of our favorite options once they go live.
