Find PC bargains during Amazon’s Fourth Day of Deals

Last Updated December 2018

If you’ve been eyeing a new computer for yourself or a loved one, Amazon’s end-of-year sales could offer the final push you need to take the plunge.

The fourth day of Amazon’s 12 Days of Deals is all about PCs. Beyond just computers, Day Four also offers some of the year’s best discounts on PC accessories such as keyboards, printers, hard drives, and more.

Not sure where to start? Here’s our list of the very best PC products to snag, at what are likely to be the lowest prices of the year.

If you already own a PC or are looking to make your setup more portable, consider the Acer Chromebook 14. Inexpensive and lightweight, the aluminum Chromebook still packs the features you’ll want on-the-go, such as an Intel Celeron Quad-Core processor, web browsing, Microsoft Office and Google Docs, an HD webcam, USB/HDMI ports, and 12 hours of battery life. You won’t be playing the latest games or rendering terabytes of HD video with the Chromebook, but if you’re after a compact and capable machine for daily tasks, there’s no better option.

You can have the most powerful computer in the world, but if it’s hooked up to a shoddy monitor, you really aren’t getting your money’s worth. With stunning 4K resolution on its anti-glare screen, this 24-inch monitor from LG can bring your immersion and overall computing enjoyment to new levels. And if you’re a gamer, it has more tricks up its sleeve — LG’s Black Stabilizer helps increase detail in dark areas, and Dynamic Action Sync reduces input lag for lighting quick responses.

A quality set of headphones is vital to a well-rounded PC setup, but with hundreds of options out there, the choice isn’t always easy. Allow us to simplify by recommending the Razer Kraken 7.1. This classic gaming headset projects 7.1 virtual surround sound through 50mm drivers for maximum audio accuracy, and with its noise-cancelling microphone, two-way communication is crystal clear. It boasts ultra plush oval ear cups as well, perfect for marathon gaming sessions.

Printing, scanning, copying, and faxing used to be separate tasks that required separate machines, but products like the HP OfficeJet Pro can tackle all that and more easily. It’s 2018, though, and that’s not enough to stand out from the pack, which is why with OfficeJet offers wireless printing from mobile devices and tablets. It can also be paired with Amazon Alexa for intuitive voice control.

Tablets are nearly as ubiquitous as smartphones and PCs these days, and the choices between brands, screen sizes, operating systems, and battery lives can be dizzying. The Amazon Fire HD 8 remains one of the most popular tablets on the market for good reason, however, with its high-definition 8-inch screen, dual-speaker sound, dual-band WiFi, and high value. Like device synergy? The Fire HD 8 is an even better choice if you already own Amazon products like the Alexa smart speaker or other smart home products.

Put simply, a mesh WiFi system spreads wireless internet throughout your home more efficiently than a standard router, meaning you won’t have to putter around looking for the best connection. This home WiFi system from eero is our go-to for its low-key design, simple setup, and solid coverage — up to 3,000 square feet. Eero’s companion app is another nice feature, as it allows users to quickly check network status and create profiles for different devices in the home.
