Nvidia’s RTX 3060 is one of the best graphics cards for mid-range performance — armed with 3,840 CUDA cores, 6GB GDDR6 video memory and a boost clock speed up to 1,703 MHz. And buying it in a laptop is one of the best ways to actually get your hands on one right now.
RTX 3060 laptop availability is becoming more and more widespread, but getting the good ones is still quite a challenge. That’s why we’re doing this big round-up of all the major-brand RTX 3060 laptops you can buy (in the U.S.), plus links to where you can grab one.

Before we begin, a quick disclaimer: we have not tested all of these laptops. If you want the best gaming laptops, as tested by us, we have a list for that.

Alienware RTX 3060 laptops

Lenovo RTX 3060 laptops
Lenovo’s gaming laptops are customizable, with the option to add an RTX 3060 GPU. But take this with a pinch of salt, as with a 4+ month shipping time (except for the 17-inch Legion 5), availability seems to be limited.
