Black Friday season is upon us and there are set to be loads of 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 and get a powerful portable rig.

I’ve been busy scouring the internet for the best PC and laptop deals all year long and the fact discounts are starting to disappear is a good telltale sign that these Black Friday savings are going to be impressive.

What Black Friday 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.

When is Black Friday 2021?

Black Friday normally happens on the day after Thanksgiving, which means you can expect Black Friday 2021 to happen on Friday, November 26.

But of course, Black Friday is not just a day anymore. It’s a weeks-long sales extravaganza, which has already started with Amazon’s daily deals and Newegg’s Black Friday Price Promise.
