What gaming laptop deals can you expect?
Now for the big question. What’s still on sale? Are there big discounts on the latest hardware or small price cuts to previous-gen systems?
In terms of the biggest price cuts, it should come as no surprise that we predict sales across RTX 20 and GTX 16 Series laptops. However, don’t count out some genuinely good RTX 30 Series gaming laptop savings too.
This year’s Dell gaming deals have proven just how low the latest hardware can go. For example: Alienware’s m15 R4 with RTX 3080 GPU has been available at nearly $1,000 off the list price.
