Update: Amazon Prime Day might be over, but this epic gaming laptop deal is still going strong. If you still need to pick up a solid gaming laptop on the cheap, the Asus ROG Strix GL53 can be yours – but only if you act fast.

There are a ton of deals on Amazon Prime Day, especially if you're after a gaming laptop. And, there are plenty of competing manufacturers that are trying to steal Amazon's thunder: like this Walmart deal for the Asus ROG Strix GL53 gaming laptop.

Sign up for Prime Day

You'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of these and other Prime Day deals. You can sign up for a free trial, which will see you through Prime Day and which you can cancel after a month.

Right now, even though Amazon Prime Day is over, you can get the Asus ROG Strix GL53 for just $899, equipped with the Intel Core i5-9300H processor (CPU), 8GB of RAM and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics processor (GPU).

And, sure, this isn't going to be the most powerful gaming laptop on sale this Prime Day, but the GTX 1660 Ti graphics are more than enough to power the best PC games at 1080p and max settings – not bad in a gaming laptop under $1,000.

One of the biggest benefits this gaming laptop has over the competition is the display – at this low price point, you're getting a 1080p, 120Hz display, meaning you can get some high refresh gaming done for cheap. And, with that 1660 Ti, you actually can achieve some pretty high frame rates in esports titles.

And, if a gaming laptop isn't quite right for your needs, you can still find plenty of laptop deals on non-gaming devices.
