Did you ever wonder what happened in the middle of October? Spooky szn isn’t news to you. As expected, this is the season’s highest consumption of pumpkin spice lattes. And if you enjoy picking apples, now is the perfect time to do so. But something is still missing from our souls, right?
It’s another Prime Day, Bezos says.
This #PrimeDay, it's time for CEOs like Jeff Bezos to pay a fair share to their workers. Join @SenSanders, #FightFor15 worker @Adriana_4812 and workers from Amazon, Walmart, and more. Tonight at 7pm on Facebook Live: https://t.co/J90HbIgKgX pic.twitter.com/Ieu1Wuvi2S

As a first, Amazon will hold two Prime Day sales events in a single year. Even though it has only been three months since the last one, sales are still sale-ing.
Amazon’s Prime Early Access event leads to savings at many different retailers. This year, you don’t have to wait until Black Friday to find some of the best deals of the year on key PC components and prebuilt computers. Amazon is running its Prime Early Access sale, more commonly called Prime Day October or Prime Day 2, on October 11th and 12th.
But, as with the original Prime Day that took place in the summer, the tech deals are taking place all week long and aren’t limited to Amazon. Other key PC retailers such as Newegg, Best Buy, Dell, and Lenovo all have their own sales going in response to Amazon’s initiative.
Even without the sales, this is a great time to upgrade your PC, do a whole new PC build, or buy one of the best gaming laptops or desktops. After a couple of years in which graphics cards were overpriced and hard to find, there’s a glut of unsold stock so we’re seeing good prices not only on GPUs but also on other key components such as CPUs, SSDs, and RAM.
SSDs are under particular downward price pressure as the price of NAND continues to drop. And we’re also seeing savings on important peripherals such as gaming monitors, keyboards, and mice.
To help you find the best Prime Day October deals on PC hardware as they appear, we’re maintaining this live blog throughout this deal holiday. In addition, we have dedicated lists for the best SSD deals, best CPU deals, best gaming laptop deals, and best PC hardware deals overall.
