Nvidia has a bunch of back to school deals on the boil right now, with some tempting gaming laptops that benefit from Turing graphics cards having chunky discounts applied.

This includes a whopping $500 off one Lenovo Legion laptop, and that’s the main deal that caught our eye.

Lenovo’s 15-inch gaming notebook is built around an Intel Core i7-9750H six-core processor, paired with an RTX 2070 (Max-Q) graphics card, plus a Full HD display which is an IPS panel with Nvidia G-Sync and a 144Hz refresh rate for seriously smooth gaming.

You also get 16GB of system memory, a 256GB PCIe SSD along with a 1TB hard drive for extra storage.

We’ve also highlighted an Asus gaming laptop powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 chip at the lowest price we’ve ever seen, and the same is true for an HP Omen model, as you’ll see highlighted in the deals below. All of these deals will only remain while stock lasts, as ever.

For those on the lookout for a monitor with a high refresh rate for competitive gaming, HP has knocked some money off the OMEN X 25, which is a 240Hz gaming monitor.
