Now that the latest series of RTX 3000 cards are fast on the way to the mobile market, gaming laptop deals on slightly older machines have started to tumble in price - great news for bargain hunters.
Many may be holding out for those new cards, and that's a fair position to take, but for those looking to score themselves a bargain on a premium, previously prohibitively priced machine - you could just be in luck.
We've spotted some great gaming laptop deals on Razer, Dell, Alienware, and even Asus machines at Dell and Best Buy this weekend - most of which feature on our best gaming laptops (opens in new tab) list. Price cuts range all the way up to $700 off right now - on this stunning Alienware m15 R3 at the Dell store for $1,499.99 (opens in new tab), although those on a budget will also find this i7-equipped Dell G5 15 for just $749.99 (opens in new tab) particularly high value.
