AU$7,399 AU$4,999 at Scorptec (opens in new tab)
This is an extremely pricey piece of kit at RRP, and while AU$5,000 is still a lot to pay for a laptop—even this highly spec'ed—these Aeros really are impressive. Specs listed above aside, it's the UHD+ OLED display that does a lot of talking, especially given the 16 inch display size and ultra-thin bezels. Like the model above, this is pitched as much to creators as to gamers.
Gigabyte Aero 16 XE4 silver (i7-12700H, RTX 3070 Ti, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD) (opens in new tab) |
AU$4,599 AU$3,599 at Mwave (opens in new tab)
A tidy grand off this well-spec-ed and very aesthetically pleasing gaming lappy. It boasts an UHD+ OLED display with a generous 16 inches of real estate, VESA DisplayHDR 500 True Black certification, and a virtually non-existent bezel. This is as much a laptop for creators as it is for gamers, so if you happen to reside within both those niches, this is a PC well worth investigation.
Gigabyte Aero 16 KE4 (i7 / RTX 3060 / 16GB RAM / 1TB SSD) (opens in new tab) |
AU$3,779 AU$2,799 at PC Case Gear (opens in new tab)

AU$3,999 AU$2,699 (opens in new tab)
Here's AU$1,300 off a special edition MSI, which is really well spec'ed for this price point. An i7-11800H, 16GB of RAM and 1TB SSD with an RTX 3060Q make this a laptop as well suited for work as for gaming, though it's the 165Hz Mini LED display that does all the talking.
MSI Creator Z16P B12UGST | (i7, 16GB RAM, RTX 3070 Ti) (opens in new tab) |
AU$4,999 AU$3,999 (opens in new tab)

MSI Vector GP66 12UGSO| i7, 16GB RAM, RTX 3070 Ti at Scorptec (opens in new tab) |

MSI Crosshair 15| i7, 8GB RAM, RTX 3060 (opens in new tab) |
AU$3,099 AU$2,324 at JB Hi-Fi (opens in new tab)
Here's a generous AU$775 off this suave gaming laptop, which really takes the gamer aesthetic to new levels. The Crosshair 15 packs in a Core i7-12700H that puts many desktop CPUs to shame.

2020 13-inch MacBook Air (M1 / 8GB / 2356GB SSD): (opens in new tab)
AU$1,499 AU$1,247 on Amazon (opens in new tab)
What is this, Mac Gamer? No, but this is the office laptop section, and if you're after a productivity lappy that is also an Apple (because I dunno, you prefer that for business stuff) then you might as well have a good ol' look at this. It's AU$252 off in Gold and Space Grey, which is a good chunk discounted for the bargain averse company.
Lenovo ThinkBook 16p G2 ACH (16-in, Ryzen 7 5800H, RTX 3060, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD) |
AU$2,670 AU$1,699 at Mwave (opens in new tab) (save AU$971)
Save nearly a grand on this lovely Lenovo. It's got a powerful Ryzen 7 5800H processor and RTX 3060 graphics, so it'd make an excellent gamer or work machine. It's rugged aluminium construction, 2KG weight and 100% sRGB 2560x1600 screen make this a classy allrounder.
Cyber Monday CPU deals
AMD Ryzen 5 7600X 6 Core/12 Thread Socket AM5 processor - AU$399 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
AMD's Ryzen 5 7600X processor is a great option if you're looking for an affordable current generation CPU without spending big bucks. It's easy to cool, it's power thrifty and just $399, it's well over $100 cheaper than it was just a month back. It'll let you divert your gaming dollars towards a high end graphics card, which the 7600X will drive with ease.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600G 6 Core Socket AM4 CPU |
AU$399 AU$199 at Mwave (opens in new tab) (save AU$200)
This affordable AMD CPU comes with strong integrated graphics, making it a compelling option if you play older games or those that don't require a powerful and expensive graphics card. Its six cores offer decent general purpose performance, it sips power, and it comes with a bundled cooler too.
Cyber Monday graphics card deals
PNY GeForce RTX 3060 VERTO Dual 12GB Graphics Card |
AU$579 AU$469 (opens in new tab) (save AU$110)
This PNY RTX 3060 at $469 delivers a lot of gaming performance for your buck. It's a good option for use with a high refresh rate 1080p screen, but it'll happily run games at higher resolutions too, especially if you enable DLSS.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER OC 6GB Graphics Card |
AU$399 AU$329 at Mwave (opens in new tab) (save AU$70)
We might want a shiny new RTX 4090, but at over $3k, that's an instant pass for most. This GTX 1660 Super is a far more worldly option at $329. It's a good card for 1080p gaming and it might offer a surprising bump in performance if you're upgrading from a card from a few years back.

Asus TUF 29 inch curved gaming monitor (opens in new tab) |
AU$699 AU$524.25 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
It's ultrawide, it's curved, but most importantly, it boasts a brilliant 200Hz refresh rate. If you want to dip your toe (or immerse your whole foot—why not?) into 21:9 gaming, you'd do well to investigate this display, which also boasts FreeSync Premium, HDR, and a 1ms response time.
LG 38WN95C 38in Ultrawide Curved Monitor |
AU$2,199 AU$1,499 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (Save AU$700)
Formerly AU$1,599 a few days ago, this increased "discount" is still an alright deal if you're in the market for this model in particular. It's a sizable 38 inch gaming monitor: a 3,840x1,600 ultrawide affair with a 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and HDR600 support. It's pitched to creators, but the specs will hold you in good stead in-game.
Alienware 25 gaming monitor (AW2521HFL) (opens in new tab) |
AU$748 AU$448 (opens in new tab)
What this display lacks in size it makes up for with smoothness: 240 flippin' Hz is on offer here, with a 1ms reponse time, and G-Sync and FreeSync support. It's a 1080p affair, so silky motion is really the priority here, and will appeal to competitive gamers. This AU$300 discount certainly sweetens the deal.
Cyber Monday TV deals
LG C2 77-inch Self Lit OLED TV (opens in new tab) |
AU$7,995 AU$5,990 at Appliance Central (opens in new tab)
Here's an undeniably substantial AU$2,000 discount on what our sibling site TechRadar considers one of the very best TVs on the market.

Cyber Monday SSD deals
Western Digital Black SN850X 1TB NVMe SSD | AU$185.65 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This is a great price for WD's excellent 1TB SN850X SSD (via Amazon US), even more so considering this is the version that includes a heatsink. It's PS5 compatible, and whether you use it with a PS5 or a PC, you'll be getting one of the fastest drives on the market.

Crucial P3 4TB PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD |
AU$579 AU$429 (opens in new tab)(save AU$150)
It's tough to find a 4TB SATA SSD at this price, let alone an NVMe one. This Crucial 4TB PCIe 3.0 is a great option for a secondary drive or storing a big game library. It won't set speed records but at this price you won't find better.
Cyber Monday gaming chair deals
ErgoTune Supreme V3 |
AU$749 AU$599 at NorthDay (opens in new tab) (save AU$150)
We reviewed (opens in new tab) this office chair recently and found it to be a great happy medium between "office" and "gaming" chair, especially for those now working from home (lucky you!). It has customisation galore, strong but breathable mesh, and is especially good for those among us not quite sold on gamer flair.
Secretlab Titan 2020 | NAPA Leather|
$1,239 $909 at Secretlab
(opens in new tab)The Secretlab Titan 2020 is still an excellent gaming chair. It's a long time favourite of ours, being supremely comfortable and well built. This version adds the feeling of luxury that only comes from genuine leather. A saving of $330 makes this a great deal.
Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Classic | 4D armrests |
$759 $724 at Secretlab
(opens in new tab)This is our pick for the best gaming chair (opens in new tab), and you'll know why once you sit in it. Or read our review (opens in new tab). As for this specific design, it's one of the more understated of the lot. It's not as sensual to the touch as the Softweave fabric choice, but still boasts immaculately upholstered, premium quality Neo Hybrid Leatherette, and of course fantastic ergonomics. The full price can be a bit deceiving on Secretlab chairs, as we rarely ever see it, but this is still a good deal on a great chair.
Cyber Monday gaming microphone and streaming deals
HyperX QuadCast S streaming microphone (opens in new tab) |
AU$299 AU$207.65 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The QuadCast S is among our favourite microphones for gaming and streaming, chiefly for its lavish RGB stylings. Of course, the thing has to work well as a mic as well, and the QuadCast S excels in that important area too. It's easy to use, has a touch-sensitive mute button, built-in shock mount, and 20Hz-20kHz frequency response. This AU$91 discount is good, and relatively rare.
Elgato Wave:3 Streaming Microphone |
AU$239 AU$167 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The Elgato Wave:3 is a well built cardioid mic that's great for streamers. It received a positive review over at our sister site Tom's Hardware (opens in new tab). And with a 30% Black Friday discount, it's even better.
Cyber Monday Gaming Mice deals
Logitech G203 Lightsync gaming mouse | (opens in new tab)
AU$69.95 AU$28-$37 (opens in new tab)
This is our favourite cheap gaming mouse, and now it's even cheaper to the tune of at least 50%. The white variety linked above is AU$35, but if you can cope with (or love!) the blue variety, that's the cheapest at AU$28. Black and lilac colours are both AU$37, if you're feeling plush and fancy.
Razer DeathAdder V2 gaming mouse (opens in new tab) |
AU$139.95 AU$43 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Well well, if it isn't our very favourite gaming mouse with a 69% (nice) discount! We praise this unit for its superior sensor, brilliant shape, and support for all the many and various hand sizes out there. You're saving a huge AU$96.95 on this one, so if you're in the market for a mouse this is a brilliant steal.
Logitech G Pro X Superlight wireless gaming mouse | (opens in new tab)
AU$279 AU$150 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
For our money this is the best wireless and lightweight gaming mouse, according to our list of the best gaming mice (opens in new tab). Its pros include its weight (only 63 grams!) comfort and accurate CPI sensor. There's no DPI switch though, and it only comes in a right-handed variant at the moment. The price above is for the black version; if you want the white it'll cost you AU$5 more (opens in new tab).
Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed wireless gaming mouse (opens in new tab) |
AU$109.95 AU$39 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
A huge 65% off this ergonomic, wireless gaming mouse, which we rewarded an admirable 81% upon release. Come for the long battery life and near-zero latency, stay for the comfort. We considered this "relatively affordable" at its RRP, which makes this discount "extremely affordable".
Razer Viper Mini gaming mouse (opens in new tab) |
AU$74.95 AU$59 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
We saw this one dip under AU$40 clams, but AU$59 is still decent value for a quality, Razer-branded gaming mouse. This is the company's lightest gaming mouse, both in terms of weight, and also thanks to its pretty RGB stylings. It's a corded affair with six programmable buttons and a 8500 DPI optical sensor.
Cooler Master MasterMouse CM110 Gaming Mouse |
AU$39 AU$19 at Mwave (opens in new tab) (save AU$20)
It might not have all the bells and whistles of a $100+ mouse, but it's got the important ones and at just 19 bucks over at Mwave, the Cooler Master CM110 is an absolute steal. It's got 3-zone RGB, adjustable DPI optical sensor and six buttons. Did we mention it's $19?
Cyber Monday Gaming Keyboard deals
Logitech G915 Lightspeed wireless mechanical keyboard (opens in new tab)|
AU$399 AU$251 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This slab is our favourite wireless gaming keyboard, with its lag-free wireless, brilliant battery life, and low-profile mechanical switches. As per usual with Logitech gear it's a tastefully understated piece of gear, though that's not to say it can't be awash in hectic RGB stylings, if you want it to be. This AU$148 discount makes now an opportune time to grab one, though obviously it still ain't an impulse buy.
Asus ROG Falchion Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard |
AU$279 AU$139 at Mwave (opens in new tab) (save AU$140)
This 65% Asus keyboard is a great option if you're looking to enjoy the benefits of a wireless mechanical keyboard with a desk space saving compact size. It's got Cherry MX Brown switches, RGB lighting and a customizable touch panel on the side. Oh, did we mention that it's half price over at Mwave?
Razer Cynosa V2 Chroma (opens in new tab) |
AU$119.90 AU$48 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Under AU$50 for this RGBified membrane keyboard verges on nonsensical, but here it is. The original (ie, not the "V2") version of this keyboard is the best membrane gaming keyboard for our money, and while you should go in aware that this ain't a mechanical affair (it's membrane, natch) if you've been holding out to grab one, now is verily the time.
HyperX Alloy Origins Core mechanical keyboard (opens in new tab) |
AU$166 AU$118 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
If you're after a tenkeyless mechanical keyboard from a trusted brand in gaming peripherals, this Alloy Origins Core is well-worth consideration—especially with AU$48 off the usual price. This one is an HX red switch affair with the obligatory RGB stylings, a robust aluminium body, and memory enough to store three custom-designed profiles.
Razer BlackWidow V3 Mini Hyperspeed TKL gaming keyboard (opens in new tab) |
AU$299.95 AU$110 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This is exactly the kind of chaos we like to see during Black Friday: AU$189.95 (or 63%) off this tenkeyless mechanical gaming keyboard, which we scored an impressive 88 / 100 upon release last year. This one was considered "very pricey" by us, but not anymore! Grab it now if you're in the market. Listed above is the green switch model; for yellow, that'll cost you a whole extra buck (opens in new tab).
Cyber Monday Controller deals

This isn't a discount per se, but for a limited time you can get some Amazon credit—and a substantial amount too—with every purchase of the Meta Quest 2. That means an additional credit of AU$150 on the 128GB Quest 2 (opens in new tab) and AU$200 on the 256GB Quest 2 (opens in new tab) for shopping on Amazon, which can be used to purchase products "sold by Amazon AU".
Cyber Monday PC case deals
be quiet! Dark Base 700 Mid Tower RGB E-ATX case |
AU$249 AU$186 at Mwave (opens in new tab) (save AU$63)
As you might guess from the name, Be Quiet cases are built with an emphasis on quiet computing, which I for one definitely appreciate! This classy case is big enough to hold the largest graphics cards and dual 360mm radiators. It has external switches to control fan speeds and RGB. It looks good too, and its tempered glass side panel allows you to show off the goodies within.
Cooler Master HAF 500 ARGB White E-ATX case |
AU$199 AU$150 at Mwave (opens in new tab) (save AU$49)
Are you planning on buying a big graphics card? You'll need a case to hold it and keep it cool. This Cooler Master case includes dual 200mm intake fans which is perfect for a hot running year 2023 system. A well built white case with ARGB always looks good too, and right now it's 25% off at Mwave.
Cyber Monday gaming headset deals
HyperX Cloud II Wireless gaming headset (opens in new tab) |
AU$299 AU$168.96 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Back before the Razer BlackShark V2 usurped it, the HyperX Cloud II was our favourite gaming headset. This wireless version is still a tidy affair, boasting an advertised 30 hour battery life (at maximum), 7.1 surround sound, detachable mic and cushy memory foam cups. This is a substantial discount, knocking just over AU$130 off the RRP.
HyperX Cloud Stinger S gaming headset (opens in new tab) |
AU$99 AU$69 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
This budget set of wired gaming cans are decently specced for their regular AU$99 price, so knocking off AU$30 makes it a worthwhile purchase. The Cloud Stinger S has virtual 7.1 Surround Sound, a robust steel frame, 90 degree rotating ear cups and a handy "swivel-to-mute" noise-cancelling mic.
Razer BlackShark V2 Pro | Wireless | Closed-back (opens in new tab) |
AU$239 AU$150 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
The "Pro" version of our favourite PC gaming headset, this pair is an over ear affair with "hyperspeed" wireless connectivity, advanced passive noise cancellation, and what Razer calls a HyperClear supercardioid mic.
Razer BlackShark V2 X (opens in new tab) |
AU$104 AU$47 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

As far as the BlackShark range goes, this V2 X is on the cheap side: it's a wired over ear affair, and unlike its more expensive sibling, doesn't have its own USB sound card, nor is its mic detachable.

When is Cyber Monday 2022?
Cyber Monday is set for November 28, 2022, trawling Black Friday like a lovesick puppy. The temptation is to look at Cyber Monday like the unwanted sibling of Black Friday, with just the dregs left on offer. But while it's still going to be tough to get the goods shipped ahead of Christmas, retailers will often have a stock of great deals set aside for Cyber Monday.
Cyber Monday also kicks off Cyber Week, where you may find a bunch of other deals on PC hardware to stretch out the sales season.
