The holiday shopping season is here and we're seeing so many great gaming laptop deals. Today’s best gaming laptops are expensive, to say the least, which is what makes these next few weeks the best time to save big.

Scouring the internet for the best deals is my bread and butter, and the state of these huge gaming laptop savings so far is a good telltale sign that Black Friday is going to be impressive if you're on the lookout for a portable powerhouse.

Gaming Laptop Deals: Quick Links

What holiday gaming laptop deals can you expect?

Now for the big question. What’s going to be on sale? Will there be 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 these to occur 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. You can expect a lot more of the same as we countdown to the big day.
