This is the BEST Prime Day laptop deal so far

The Samsung Galaxy Book Pro is a total bargain this Amazon Prime Day

UPDATE: The deal we’ve written about here has now expired but there’s an equally good alternative available now in the Prime Day sales. It’s on the 13.3in verson of the same laptop – the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 13.3in – which comes with an OLED display, 4G connectivity, an 11th Gen Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. It’s on at a bargain £599 right now.

Amazon Prime Day has kicked off with aplomb; take this Samsung Galaxy Book Pro deal, which sees the killer laptop at its cheapest EVER price on Amazon. Shoppers can now snap up the Galaxy Book Pro Intel Evo i5 15.6in laptop with 8GB RAM and 512GB storage for just £650, down from an average of £1,045. That means savings of a whopping £395.

The model in question, which comes in the colour Mystic Silver, has a lot to recommend it. One of its biggest merits is its weight: at 1.05kg for a 15.6in notebook, it’s remarkably light, perfect for carting around at work or university. Its dimensions, meanwhile, are a slim 355 x 226 x 11.7mm, meaning it’s further optimised for portability, despite the sizeable screen.

We were such big fans of the 15.6in model that we awarded it five stars in our full-length Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 15.6 review, praising its long-lasting battery life. When our testers ran their video rundown test, the battery depleted in a commendable 16hrs 28mins.

The punchy AMOLED screen will also delight, plus you’ll be able to switch between colour profiles for different uses via the Samsung Settings app: from Natural for everyday use to Vivid for gaming to Photo editing for tidying up your holiday snaps.

The Samsung Galaxy Book Pro’s keyboard, though a tad shallow, is a pleasure to tap away at, with the added bonus of being relatively quiet, so it’s a great option for libraries. Easy, secure access to the device is facilitated by a handy fingerprint scanner concealed in the power button. All-in-all? A lightweight five-star laptop at a ludicrously discounted price.
