The Intel Gamer Days event is underway – an 11-day promotion that features unique streaming events, giveaways, and a whole bunch of gaming laptop deals.
As you'd imagine, it's the gaming laptop deals that we're most interested in here at TechRadar, and we've rounded up the best offers that we've spotted right here. In short, there are some great options for a range of budgets – particularly at Amazon, which has sections for entry-level, mid-range, and high-end machines.
If you're strictly on a budget, the best cheap gaming laptop deal we've found is the HP Victus 15 at Amazon for $699 (was $979). Not only is the discount absolutely fantastic, but the RTX 3050 graphics card, Intel Core I5-12500H processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD give this machine heaps of power for the price. It's one of the better cheap gaming laptop deals out there in our opinion right now, and perfect if you want an inexpensive machine for college for both work and play.
For higher-end gamers, we've picked out the Asus TUF Dash F15 for $999 (was $1,299) and this Acer Predator Helios 300 for $1,164.99 (was $1,299). Both are a bit on the pricey side for gaming laptops with an RTX 3060 graphics card, but powerful CPUs and 16GB of RAM ensure both should offer fantastic performance at 1080p. For a lightweight machine, the F15 is going to be the better choice, but we'd suggest the Acer for those who really value performance. While a bit older, the Intel Core i7-11800H in this machine is still one of the best chips on the market for gaming.
