The Lenovo summer sale has just gone live, and we've spotted some fantastic cheap gaming laptop deals that are worth checking out if you've been looking to get your game on without breaking the bank.

This $200 saving on a Lenovo IdeaPad L340 15.6-inch gaming laptop for just $779.99 is a particular treat for those on a budget. Somehow, Lenovo has managed to cram an Intel Core i7-9750H processor in there for under $800, which is absolutely ridiculous. It's also got a 512GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, and a GeForce GTX 1050, which make this is a high-speed little machine for non-GPU intensive games like Minecraft or popular strategy titles.

If you did want to upgrade that graphics card, however, then we've rounded up some other excellent gaming laptop deals, including these Legion 5's for $899.99 and $939.99. The first Legion features a brand new Ryzen 5 4600H processor and a GTX 1650 under the hood, while the second Legion features a GTX 1660Ti but a slightly weaker Intel Core i5 9300H processor. Both these machines feature 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and 1TB hard drive - making them both well rounded regardless of whether you prefer a faster graphics card or processor.

Still not powerful enough? Well, for good measure we've thrown in this bonus gaming laptop deal on a 15.6-inch Legion Y540 for just $1,129.99. With an Intel Core i7, GTX 1660Ti, and a $480 saving to boot, this is our top-end pick of the bunch from this week's Lenovo summer sale.
