It's all over. The Big Deal Days are done and dusted... well, until the big deal that is Black Friday, obviously. But because it wasn't just Amazon doing the do with deals there are still a perhaps surprising number of gaming laptop discounts still live. We've highlighted the best still live below, and we'll continue to curate the top offers in our early Black Friday gaming laptop deals page, so keep an eye on that.
In fact, Amazon really wasn't the best place to pick up a new laptop in all honesty. Our favorite high-end and budget picks (both Lenovo Legion machines) came from B&H Photo and Best Buy respectively. They're still on offer today, but both are slightly more expensive than they were this time yesterday. If it wasn't for the fact that the Black Friday deals season is just around the corner I'd suggest they were still worth a look, but I can't shake the feeling that both will be discounted down to the same level again in around a month.
Which actually makes this slightly bizarrely timed Amazon sales event actually quite useful: It's given us a good picture of the sort of discounted prices we should expect to find on Black Friday.
This is the last time we will update this page for now, so if you want to keep an eye on what the best gaming laptop deals are going forward, then check out our early Black Friday coverage.

Amazon Prime Day gaming laptop deals
Gigabyte G5 KF | Nvidia RTX 4060 | Intel Core i5 12500H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 8GB DDR4 | 512GB SSD |
$1,099 $859.99 at Newegg (save $239.01)
The Gigabyte G5 (see our review) is our favorite affordable gaming laptop, packing the RTX 4060 GPU for some serious 1080p gaming performance in a budget package. It's a smart spec that essentially uses an otherwise older specification with the simple addition of just the new Nvidia RTX 40-series graphics chip. The 512GB SSD is a bit miserly, but that is upgradeable. The 8GB of DDR4 memory is also upgradeable, and you'll want to bump it to 16GB, so this is a bit of a project buy.
MSI Katana 15 | 15-inch | RTX 4060 | Intel Core i5 12450H | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD |
$1,199 $949 at Newegg (save $250)
This is the RTX 4060 laptop to buy right now. For a little under $1,000, you can score a brand new RTX 4060 in a laptop that's not massively underpowered in some other way. Usually, we'd see manufacturers skimp on the SSD or RAM to get the cost down to this level, but here you're looking at a healthy 16GB of DDR5 and a 1TB NVMe drive. Lovely.
Price check: Amazon $1,399.99
Lenovo Legion Slim 5 | RTX 4060 | AMD Ryzen 5 7640HS | 16-inch | 144Hz | 1200p | 16GB DDR5 | 512GB SSD |
$1,349.99 $1,029.99 at Best Buy (save $320)
Lenovo has been doing great things with laptops lately. Our pick as the best gaming laptop is a Lenovo, in fact. This isn't that laptop, but it's a slim version with a cut-down spec that will appeal to anyone actually looking to carry this around day-to-day. The only downside here is the slim SSD storage, but otherwise the spec looks great. It was cheaper over the recent Prime Day, so I'd expect it to drop below $1,000 again closer to Black Friday.
MSI Crosshair 15 | RTX 4070 | Intel Core i7 13620H | 16-inch | 144Hz | 1200p | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD |
$1,699.99 $1,389.90 Amazon (save $310.09)
We were surprised to see a new 16-inch RTX 4070-powered laptop for only $1,400. This Crosshair has a current-gen Intel CPU, so it's great for working and gaming. Also, the display has a 16:10 aspect ratio, so you get more field of view which is super useful in first-person shooters.
Price check: Best Buy $1,399.99
Asus TUF A17 | Nvidia RTX 4070 | AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS | 17.3-inch | 144Hz | 1080p | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD |
$1,799.99 $1,369 at Amazon (save $430.99)
If you're after a large-screen laptop for school with a little Triple-A gaming on the side, the TUF A17 will certainly deliver. It is only a 1080p panel, which is a bit of a shame, but its RTX 4070 will run pretty much everything at that resolution. It also has an 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen CPU that sports the 780M integrated graphics. That's the same as in all the latest handhelds so it can give decent gaming performance on the go and should offer more gaming battery life than running on the RTX 4070 when away from a plug socket.
Price check: Newegg $1,399.99
Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | Nvidia RTX 4060 | AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS | 14-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,599.99 at Best Buy (save $200)
If you don't want a hulking gaming laptop, let me introduce the Zephyrus 14 (see our review): a 14-incher that can game without busting your bank balance or your shoulder when lugging it around—no-nonsense specs in a delightful package. This is the latest version with the RTX 40-series GPUs; this is a very smart package, though not the most affordable RTX 4060 machine by any stretch.
Price check: Newegg $1,764.99
MSI Pulse 15 | RTX 4070 | Intel Core i9 13900H | 32GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | 1440p | 165Hz |
$1,899 $1,600.58 at Amazon (save $298.42)
This laptop offers a higher-spec CPU and more RAM than most you'll find cheaper with an RTX 4070. If you're after a laptop that can deliver for work, creative pursuits, and gaming, this will be a better fit for it.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 | RTX 4070 | Intel Core i9 13900H | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | 1600p | 240Hz | $1,949.99 at Best Buy
This Zephyrus 16 is one of our favorite next-gen RTX 40-series laptops (see our review of the RTX 4090 version). This flashy machine has a lot going on under the hood and has a beautifully bright QHD+ (2560 x 1600) at a speedy 240Hz, which might just about :thumb.
Lenovo Legion Pro 7i | Nvidia RTX 4080 | Intel Core i9 13900HX | 16-inch | 1600p | 240Hz | 32GB DDR5-5600 | 1TB NVMe SSD |
$2,749.99 $2,149.99 at B&H Photo (save $600)
This is a great discount on the best RTX 4080 laptop I've tested even though the price has gone up $50 since Prime Day. It's a fantastic notebook, offering performance that can often match and sometimes beat an RTX 4090-based system (see our review). There's a high-performance CPU to back it up, a decent, bright 1600p screen, and a fair amount of storage. All with a discount.

Medion Erazer Deputy P25 | AMD Ryzen 5 5600H | Nvidia RTX 3060 | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD |
£969.97 £749.97 at Laptops Direct (save £220)
It can be a little tougher to recommend a last-gen gaming laptop at this level, because the RTX 4060 machines are pretty good value right now. But if you really can't stretch to that, this affordable RTX 3060 machine will deliver a decent level of 1080p gaming performance with a pretty healthy back up specs list to boot.
Gigabyte G5 | Intel Core i5 12500H | Nvidia RTX 4060 | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB DDR4-3200 | 512GB SSD |
£1,198.97 £897.97 at Laptops Direct (save £215)
We're big fans of this little budget gaming laptop, and our Jacob loved its "great gaming performance" (check out our review). With over £200 off the original price, this powerful notebook is a great deal today.
Price check: Amazon £879.97
Asus ROG Strix A15 | AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX | AMD Radeon RX 6800M | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 300Hz | 16GB DDR4-3200 | 1TB SSD |
£1,949.99 £999.99 at Box (save £950)
This is proof that sometimes it's still possible to recommend a last-gen system over a current-gen option. The RX 6800M is almost the best mobile GPU AMD released in the previous generation and it handily beats the RTX 4060 in most benchmarks. That 8-core Ryzen chip is still a very effective processor, and that 300Hz IPS screen will be a looker, too.
Asus ROG Strix G16 | Intel Core i7 13650H | Nvidia RTX 4080 | 16-inch | 1200p | 165Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD |
£2,249.99 £2,002.32 at Amazon (save £247.67)
The G16 is a more value-focused gaming laptop from the ROG stable, and as such doesn't have the sparkly Nebula display of something like the Zephyrus M16. But the Strix G16 still has an impressively punchy 1920 x 1200 panel, and the RTX 4080 at its heart will power any game at peak settings on that display beautifully.
