If you're hoping to grab one of the Amazon Prime Day gaming laptop deals this year, you'll need to act soon. Some deals will start disappearing now that we're into the second day, though some of the wider deals could last until the end of the week. Retailers are pushing laptop discounts hard with big savings this time around, so it's an excellent time to pick up a gaming laptop if you've been thinking about making that leap.

Gaming laptops and work laptops haven't been under the same stresses we've seen graphics cards dealing with recently. Laptops have stood firm in the face of shortages and delays, while Nvidia, AMD, and Intel have come out with new components to improve portable machines. In fact, we're now looking at a highly competitive laptop scene.

Competition encourages innovation, as they say; performance and value for money have both gotten a boost since things have been heating up between AMD and Intel in the CPU game, as well as AMD and Nvidia when it comes to GPUs.

The RTX 3080 Ti from Nvidia owns when it comes to mobile GPUs in gaming laptops right now, but they'll cost a pretty penny. AMD's RX 6800S and RX 6700S offer alternatives to Nvidia at the high-end, and through the lower rungs of performance. On the cheaper side, Nvidia's RTX 3050, RTX 3050 Ti, and RTX 3060 GPUs are boss, all of which can be found for under $1,000 in gaming laptops. Discounts on the high-end laptops should bring them under the $2,000 mark. Here's our Prime day gaming laptop guide (opens in new tab) if you're unsure. 

Also, it isn't just Amazon that's littered with discounted goods, the whole tech retail industry tries to match Amazon's prices with their own. So be sure to check everywhere for a bargain—we will be.

If these aren't the laptops you're looking for, the best Prime Day gaming PC (opens in new tab) and Prime Day gaming monitor deals (opens in new tab) might provide a more powerful solution. You can also check out our current selection of Amazon Prime Day PC gaming deals (opens in new tab) around today's tasty offers, from TVs to peripherals, and more.

When does Amazon Prime Day 2022 end?

The official answer is that Prime Day 2022 ends at 11.59pm on Wednesday July 13. But the more complicated answer is that it depends on your time zone. In the US, Amazon Prime Day ends at 11.59pm PDT Wednesday July 13, but that's actually 2.59am EDT Thursday July 14.

In the UK it's a more straightforward cut off at 11.59pm BST Wednesday July 13.

But that's all for Amazon's own specific deals, and we would expect to see deals from the likes of Newegg and Best Buy hanging around just that little bit longer.

MSI Stealth 15M | Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7-11375H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,399 $1,059 at Amazon (save $339.01) (opens in new tab)
This ultra-thin gaming laptop offers a healthy saving, boasting an RTX 3060, 16GB RAM, and an ultra-portable 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, it's only a quad-core, eight-thread chip, but will be fine for most games. The 15.6-inch screen has a tasty 144Hz refresh rate, and while the 512GB SSD is a little on the small side, it's nothing an external SSD can't sort out, and that can be upgraded yourself later on down the line if you need.

Gigabyte A5 K1 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 7 5800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 240Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,399 $1,049 at Amazon (save $249.84) (opens in new tab)
This is just over that $1,000 bar we set for a good deal this Prime Day; an RTX 3060 gaming laptop that actually has the other specs to back up its gaming performance. That's not only a great AMD CPU at its core, like genuinely great, but also 16GB of speedy RAM, 1TB of speedy storage, and a speedy screen. You'd think one of those things would have to go at this price.

MSI GF63 Thin | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 | Intel Core i5 11400H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 8GB RAM | 256GB SSD | $749.99 $689.99 at Newegg (save $60) (opens in new tab)
It may come in at the lower end of the gaming spectrum, but this is a dependable machine that's lighter than your average gaming laptop. It falls down a little when it comes to storage space, and the RAM is a little lacking, but if you're alright with a few restrictions, that's a good price for a portable gaming machine with a current gen GPU.

Gigabyte G5 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 | Intel Core i5 11400H | 15.6-inch 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512 GB SSD | $1,299 $849 at Newegg (save $450) (opens in new tab)
This RTX 3060-powered machine sits neatly below the $1,000 deal bar for Prime Day. That CPU is only last Gen, and it's backed up with 16GB of RAM as well as a nice 144Hz monitor that's great for competitive gaming. The SSD is a little lacking for the size of today's games, but it's still a great price for a smashing lappy.

Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 (2021) | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 | AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX | 15.6-inch 1080p | 300Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,399.99 $1,899.99 at Newegg (save $500) (opens in new tab)
The Strix Scar is an impressive machine, and one that we appreciate for its high quality build. It's also one of the flashier gaming laptops in terms of being plastered in RGB lighting. But that's okay, it has the specs to back it up, including an RTX 3080 for under $2,000. Definitely not a bad get, though perhaps we'll see laptops like this drop even further in price as Prime Day approaches.

Alienware M15 R6 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 11800H  | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,949.99 $1,699.99 at Amazon (save $250) (opens in new tab)
That's $250 off a powerful, portable gaming machine here. There's a massive stack of RAM here too, so you can get to some serious multitasking, all while that intense CPU/GPU combo will get to some serious gaming chops, even on a higher resolution, external monitor if that's the plan. If not, its 1080p panel has a super speedy refresh rate to make the most of the frame rates this thing will be throwing out.

MSI Pulse GL66 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 11800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,499 $1,199.99 at Amazon (save $299.01) (opens in new tab)
Damn that is a chunk of money off. There's a lot to say about a machine with an RTX 3070 inside for under $1,200. Our general rule is to stay under $1,500 for a standard RTX 3070-powered laptop, so you're onto a winner with this one. It even comes suped up with a powerful last Gen Intel mobile CPU, and has a speedy 144Hz monitor to top it off.

Asus TUF Dash 15 (2021) | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti | Intel Core i7 11370H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $949.99 $799.99 at Amazon (save $150) (opens in new tab)
For the 2021 model, this is a really great deal. Not only are you getting a powerful 11th Gen intel CPU and a decent entry-level GPU, you'll even get the benefit of a 144Hz panel packed in there, too. The RAM and storage may be a little lacking, but those are easy enough to upgrade after the fact. Either way, this is a stellar buy at this price.

HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 | Intel Core i7 11390H | 16-inch UHD OLED | 16:10 |  16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,939.99 $1,399.99 at Microsoft (save $540) (opens in new tab)
This HP Spectre is expensive for the specs by comparison to a gaming laptop, but if you want a sleek office machine which still has plenty of power, you do have to pay a little more for it. This is a very slender machine, at least, and won't fall over at the sight of a massive spreadsheet. As someone that finds my compact Dell XPS 13 to be a very handy device, I would definitely like it to have a little more graphical grunt like this here Spectre.

MSI Modern15 A5M | AMD Ryzen 7 5700U | 15.6-inch  | 1080p | 8GB RAM | 512GB | $799 $549 at Microsoft (save $250) (opens in new tab)
While this one doesn't come with a discreet GPU, it does boast an 8-core, 16-thread CPU that's still very relevant today. The RAM is a little lacking, but otherwise it's a smashing little laptop that's hard not to recommend for the price. And you get a nice little chunk of storage, to boot.

Lenovo IdeaPad 5 | Intel Core i5 1135G7 | 15.6-inch 1080p | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $899 $699 at B&H (save $200) (opens in new tab)
A speedy little laptop for work and study here, one that's packing Intel's last generation CPU. That's topped with a nice chunk of RAM, making it a good bet for multitasking. You might even be able to get a bit of gaming done with the processor's Xe integrated graphics if you drop the resolution and graphics settings down a bit.

Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 | RTX 3060 | Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 120Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £899.99 £749.99 at Amazon (save £150) (opens in new tab)
This is the cheapest RTX 3060 gaming laptop we've found, and the first time that it's ever dropped below the £800 mark, too. Granted there are some sacrifices made to deliver the GPU performance at this price. Notably the RAM and SSD are pretty miserly, but compromises always have to be made, and the CPU and GPU combination will deliver great gaming performance on the 120Hz 1080p screen.

Asus TUF Gaming F15 | RTX 3060 | Core i7-11800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,199 £849.95 at Overclockers (save £350) (opens in new tab)
This RTX 3060-powered laptop has dropped below the £1000 mark for Prime Day. This machine offers 16GB RAM, an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, and a 512GB SSD. The 15.6-inch screen won't leave you squinting at the screen on longer gaming sessions either, thanks to that 144Hz refresh rate.

MSI Katana GF66 | RTX 3060 | Core i7-11800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,199 £849 at Amazon (save £350) (opens in new tab)
This is a healthy saving on a gaming laptop. It boasts an RTX 3060, 16GB RAM, and an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor. The 512GB NVMe SSD may be a touch on the small side but this laptop is still a solid choice if you're looking for a portable alternative to a gaming desktop for under £1,000.

Lenovo Legion 5 | RTX 3070 | Ryzen 7 5800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,399.99 £999.97 at Amazon (save £400.02) (opens in new tab)
This laptop won't ship straightaway, but some things are worth waiting for. The only bad thing I have to say about this spec is the size of that SSD, ideally I'd want a cool 1TB. But I can compromise when it allows me to grab an RTX 3070-powered laptop with an excellent AMD Zen 3 CPU for less than £1,200. The rest of the spec is excellent, and hey, external SSDs aren't that pricey these days if you need a little more storage on the go.

Dell G15 |RTX 3050 | Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 120Hz | 8GB RAM | 256GB SSD | £749 £599 at Dell (save £150) (opens in new tab)
This has dropped to a great price if you're looking to break into the portable PC gaming market. The Nvidia Geforce RTX 3050 will let you run most modern games comfortably if you drop the settings a touch. And, while the RAM and the 256GB storage might be a little on the low side, the saving makes this machine well worth considering. Especially as it's one of the few machines that you can still upgrade memory and SSD later on if you wish.
