Black Friday 2018 and Cyber Monday 2018 gaming laptop deals: What to expect this year

What's more fun than playing PC games? Playing PC games on the go, obviously. This Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you can expect to see decent discounts on all kinds of gaming laptops—from budget models to high-end desktop replacements.

In this post, we'll go over what kind of sales you can expect to see in the weeks ahead, and what you should keep an eye out for. 

What to expect from gaming laptop deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday

There haven't been any groundbreaking technological advancements in gaming laptops over the past year. There aren't any models with Nvidia's new RTX graphics cards yet. However, we have started to see plenty of laptops using Intel's eighth-generation Core processors, which include the usual performance and battery life improvements.

This Black Friday/Cyber Monday, you should expect to see the same $100-300 discounts as last year, depending on the original price. Nothing too exciting, but if you are in the market for a gaming laptop, the money saved can go towards a few Steam games or a nice headset.
