Gaming laptop deals hunters will be pleased to note we're in an absolute sweet spot right now. Nestled in between the now-past Labor Day sales and the rapidly encroaching Black Friday deals event, we're seeing some great offers drop from Best Buy, Dell and Newegg - although we can't say for how long they'll be around.
[Update] This post was originally posted this weekend, but due to popularity, we've just updated it with two stunning new gaming laptop deals from Dell.
Unfortunately, you've just missed this stellar $250 off HP Omen 15 retailing for just $999.99 (opens in new tab) but this Dell G3 15, complete with $400 sale price, going for just $799.99 (opens in new tab) should more than make up for it. With a GTX 1660Ti, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD and 10th gen Intel Core i5 processor, these are specs that really take some beating at this price point.
If you were on the hunt for a cheap RTX 2060 card, then you're also in luck with this MSI GF65 Thin going for just $899 (opens in new tab) right now at Newegg. That's easily one of the cheapest prices we've ever seen on an RTX specced machine, and, considering you're also getting a 512GB SSD and 120Hz screen, it's also got plenty more premium appointments too.
For those looking for some higher-end machines, check out this Asus Zephyrus M15 at Best Buy for $1,149.99 (was $1,299) (opens in new tab) and this Gigabyte Aorus 7 (opens in new tab) at Newegg for $1,349 (was $1,599) (opens in new tab). Both these machines are rocking some hefty price cuts right now, and are absolutely great buys if you're on the hunt for a gaming laptop that'll be able to square up to high settings.
And last, but certainly not least, is this beastly Asus Zephyrus S at Newegg for $1,599.99 (was $2,999) (opens in new tab). That's a $1,400 price cut on a machine that's capable of the smoothest of frame rates, not least because of that RTX 2080 card packed inside.

HP Omen 15.6-inch gaming laptop: $1,249.99 $999.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
[Expired] this week on a stunning HP Omen at Best Buy. The Omen range features the slickest gaming laptops offered by HP and certainly can give any Alienware or Razer a run for their money. Featuring one of the fastest processors from AMD - the Ryzen 7 4800H, plus a GTX 1660Ti, this machine will perform fantastically at 1080p gaming. A 144Hz screen rounds off the specs here for a superbly well-rounded gaming laptop.
MSI GF65 Thin 15.6-inch gaming laptop:
$999 $899 at Newegg (opens in new tab)
An RTX 2060 GPU should bring this MSI GF65 Thin to your attention this weekend. A $100 saving from Newegg makes this one of the cheapest gaming laptop deals we've seen rocking an RTX graphics card and you're also getting a 512GB SSD and 120Hz screen. Downsides? There's only one at this price. It's got a slightly older Intel Core i5-9300H processor, which while still speedy, isn't the newest generation on the market.
ASUS ROG Zephyrus M15 gaming laptop:
$1,299 $1,149.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
While pricey, this Asus Zephyrus M15 has quite possibly the coolest, sleekest looking aesthetic of any gaming laptop around. It's almost too cool, and, with a 10th gen Intel Core i7-10750H processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD and GTX 1660 Ti, it runs along rather speedily as well.
Gigabyte Aorus 7 17.3-inch gaming laptop:
$1,599 $1,349 at Newegg (opens in new tab)
It's not often you see these Gigabyte Aorus gaming laptops go on sale and this one's looking particularly tempting - especially if you're on the hunt for a larger display. With an RTX 2060, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and Intel Core i7-10750H, a $250 saving from Newegg makes this one excellent value for money.
Asus Zephyrus S 15.6-inch gaming laptop:
$2,999 $1,599.99 at Newegg (opens in new tab)
We don't normally feature gaming laptop deals this pricey at TechRadar, but this Asus Zephyrus S is getting a $1,400 price cut this week at Newegg - outstanding value. That's one of the cheapest prices we've ever seen on an RTX 2080 equipped laptop, and the 144hz screen, 16GB of RAM and 512GB SSD are also great additions. Our only foible is the processor being the slightly older Intel Core i7-8750H, but don't let that stop you from checking out this beastly machine.
