Update: Amazon Prime Day is over now, but there are still plenty of other opportunities to get a great deal. We've got you covered for more gaming laptop deals (US) and cheap gaming laptops (UK).

Amazon's Prime Day deals are is in full swing, and the Acer Nitro 5 has had its price cut by a huge £300 — so now it's under £1,000.

For £799.99, you get the Acer Nitro 5 with an Intel Core i5 processor and Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card. This will give you plenty of oomph for playing the latest games.

Sign up for Prime Day

You'll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of Prime Day deals. You can sign up for a free trial (opens in new tab), which will see you through Prime Day and which you can cancel after 30 days, or if you like the look of Prime then right now you can save £20 on a one-year subscription.

While it's not the most powerful gaming laptop around, it's a brilliant performer — and at this price it's very competitive. Most gaming laptops under £1,000 cut a few too many corners to keep the price low in our opinion. 

However, the Acer Nitro 5 packs hardware and features that other budget gaming laptops can only dream about, like the fast 144Hz refresh rate for smooth and responsive gaming.

We've also collected the very best Amazon Prime Day laptop deals as well.
