This week, Dell's just launched a new wave of gaming laptop deals that includes three superb options for those on a budget - all of which are selling out quickly.

First up is this Dell G15 for $749.99 (was $1,218) - probably the best value choice out of the three if you can afford it. With an RTX 3050 Ti graphics card, Intel Core i5-11400H processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD, this one's both packing in a respectable GPU for the money and components that are really up to date. Of course, as a mid-range model, it still won't max out every game at 1080p, but for the money, it's one of the best cheap gaming laptop deals we've seen for a while.

Another great choice is this lower-end Dell G15 for $699.99 (was $1,218). This one's packing in the same graphics card, RAM, and SSD as the more expensive version above but slightly drops the price by having an older Intel Core i5-10500H processor. If we're honest, this component is almost as fast as its 11th gen counterpart, so it's still a very good buy. For our money, we'd rather spend that $50 more to get the newer CPU, but it's a close second and a good option if the first sells out.

Finally, we've got this baseline Dell G15 for $599.99 (was $1,018), which is going to be the machine of choice for those who are really on a budget. With a GTX 1650 graphics card, Intel Core i5-10500H, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD, you're not getting world-beating specs by any stretch of the imagination, but it'll run most games at 1080p if you're willing to tweak the settings. For games like Minecraft or Fortnite, it's not a bad choice.

For outright value, it's hard to beat this mid-range Dell G15 with an RTX 3050 Ti graphics card, Intel Core i5-11400H processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD. Put together, those are some really beefy specs for the money and should get you pushing respectable frame rates for 1080p gaming. Out of all of this week's gaming laptop deals, this one is the best value.

If you find the above G15 sold out, then you could instead opt for this slightly downgraded version with an RTX 3050 Ti, Intel Core i5-10500H, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD. The CPU is a little older on this model, but you'll still get great performance for the money overall.

And, for those really on a budget, consider this entry-level G15 with an Intel Core i5-10500H, GTX 1650, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD. This one won't quite match the above two options for outright performance, but it'll still manage to play most eSports and casual games at 1080p well enough for the cash.
