Home Features Gaming laptops are one example of tech that’s come through the shortages basically unscathed. That’s not to say gaming laptops are immune to today’s technological woes, though, and the best of these will be in high demand over the holidays. With Black Friday just around the corner, there are deals cropping up all over. And good ones, too. The key to finding the best laptop will be staying on top of the latest laptop deals. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to do that on your own. Right now we’re grinding away on the deals machine, and with our expertise at hand, we’ll be making sure to filter the very best Black Friday gaming laptop deals into the list below, right the way through into Cyber Monday. For a great 2021 gaming laptop deal, you’ll want to look out for one with a more recent GPU, such as Nvidia’s RTX 30-series. You can find some older models with RTX 20-series still kicking around, though we don’t recommend paying over the odds for one when there will be plenty of deals on newer GPU laptop models. A newer CPU is also a good idea. A greater core count will give you more processing power to handle your workload, but be wary of single-stick configurations—these could cause you to lose precious performance because an OEM or manufacturer wanted to cut costs. All the best Black Friday PC deals you can grab today. Below are all the best gaming laptop deals we’ve found so far, or which have been discovered through our automatic deals widgets. We’ll continue to update this page in the lead up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, adding the best deals to the top and removing deals that have expired.

That means we could see deals popping up from the likes of Dell, Lenovo, Asus, Razer, and more as early as the end of October/start of November. What should I look out for in a Black Friday gaming laptop deal? The best Black Friday gaming laptop deals will deliver high-performance hardware for a knockdown price, or at the very least not come with an overly inflated price tag. But it doesn’t automatically scan that just because something has a three-figure discount that it will be worth the money. You need to keep an eye on what parts are being used, what else you get for your cash, and whether it’s actually right for you. Things are tough for PC gaming hardware, as it stands today. But companies are still aiming to shift stock so expect some discounts on current-gen kit. Don’t be fooled into parting with money for anything beyond the last generation of GPUs, however. It’s unlikely there’ll be a laptop with an Nvidia 10-series graphics card inside it that’s worth buying this Black Friday, unless you can find a wonderfully cheap deal. Keep an eye out for storage, and memory size too. That’s most true at the low end of the market, where manufacturers may aim to keep prices low by using single sticks of memory and therefore halving the potential memory bandwidth. That might not be a problem in the very cheapest of gaming laptops, however, where the GPU will make the most difference to your experience.
