We've been reviewing the best gaming laptops around for a while now, and our dedicated computing team is scouring Amazon for only the most worthwhile Prime Day deals on major brands like Acer, HP, Alienware, and Razer.

And we're not just looking for the laptops with the highest-end specs that cost thousands of dollars, but we're digging up the deals that offer the great value, which includes many of the best cheap gaming laptops around that get the job done without fragging your wallet in the process.

We've broken down all the deals by country (US and UK) and sorted them by price to make it quick and easy to find the best laptop deal for you. Fortunately, a lot of the deals we've seen so far are much better than the ones we saw during last year's Prime Day event, especially in the UK.

Just remember though that you'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to get the very best deals, but if you're not a member, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial of Prime (opens in new tab), just remember to cancel it before your 30 days are up or you'll be charged a monthly fee for membership.

Also, Amazon isn't the only retailer who will be running deals this week, and you won't need any memberships to take advantage of those. This includes retailers like Best Buy, Newegg, Dell, HP, Currys, Box, and many more. We've pulled those together too to make sure that you get the best Prime Day gaming laptop deals no matter what the retailer.

Prime Day gaming laptop deals: FAQs

Do you need Amazon Prime for Prime Day gaming laptop deals?

To take part in Amazon Prime Day gaming laptop deals proper, you will need a Prime membership. However, there's two pieces of good news to consider here. 

The first is that Amazon usually offers a free trial in the week's leading up to Prime Day itself to ensure its customer base is as large as possible for its big sales event. You'll find similar Prime free trials available right now, but keep your eyes peeled closer to the event itself to time your membership just right. 

The second piece of good news is that there will be a number of non-Prime member deals at Amazon and plenty at other retailers too. Rival Prime Day laptop deals are on offer at Best Buy, Walmart, Dell, HP, and even Currys to name just a few and also offer some absolutely great options.
