Best Buy has some great gaming laptop deals today including a hefty $200 price cut on our current favorite machine - the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 - which you can pick up for just $1,149.99 (opens in new tab) right now.

This price is for the top-of-the-line configuration with a Ryzen 9 processor, RTX 2060 graphics card, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD - absolutely amazing specs for any gaming laptop to have and especially on such a small, portable 14-inch machine. We tested this particular spec last year and safe to say it's had the top spot on our best gaming laptops (opens in new tab) buyers guide ever since.

Ok, so this isn't a cheap gaming laptop deal (opens in new tab) by any stretch of the imagination, but hear us out - it's actually a good machine for the money. The Asus G14 specifically has a premium build and a ton of power for such a small, portable laptop. It also comes in a whole lot cheaper than something the Razer Blade Stealth 13 for example, which is currently retailing for an eye-watering $1,799 (opens in new tab) for its latest iteration. 

You could, however, opt to wait for something like this Asus TUF 15.6-inch for $1,099.99 (opens in new tab) to come on the market. Of course, this one doesn't quite have that premium look, or small form factor of the G14, but it does come with that latest RTX 3060 graphics card. It's not a bad thing to be waiting if you want that latest hardware, but if portability and a premium build is king for you, the Asus G14 is a no brainer in our eyes.
