Cyber Week. It's got a certain nostalgic '90s vibe about. Back when it was a mega-novelty to purchase anything 'online'. Could you even do it back then? I don't know, I didn't get the internet plumbed into my home until well after I'd left university. Anyways, whatever you want to call limbo time after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are still gaming laptop deals floating around in the void, and we'll be keeping track of the best throughout the week as we get into the Christmas gifting period.
And we know just what to look for, too. Ideally a current-gen GPU, for one—an Nvidia RTX 40-series card will have the chops to take on most modern games. Even some older models with RTX 30-series GPUs are still kicking around, though we don't recommend paying over the odds for those when there are better rigs around for less.
You'll also want to consider newer CPUs, many of which come with greater core counts than the usual four-core options. That said, if you're being presented with the choice of a last-gen CPU paired with a current-gen GPU, it's not the end of the world—it'll still serve you well, and the GPU is more important for most games.
- We'll carry on curating the best Cyber Week PC gaming deals all the way through.
Below are the best laptop deals we've found at the moment, but the bots below the deal blocks will keep an extra eye out. We'll be updating this page if we spot anything worth your money, and make sure to save this page in your Cyber Monday bookmark folder to stay up-to-date with the best prices!

Cyber Week gaming laptop deals in the US
Steam Deck (original) | 64GB SSD | $349 at Steam
Okay, it's not a laptop, and the Steam Deck may have had an OLED refresh but the original version is still pretty much the archetype of what a mobile PC gaming device should be. It's just as powerful as the most recent model so all those Steam Deck compatible games should run well, and while the 64GB storage is rather small, SSD upgrades like the Sabrent 2230 512GB are at a great price for a straightforward upgrade. It's the OG PC gaming handheld, and it demands respect.
Asus ROG Ally | AMD Z1 Extreme | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | 7-inch 1080p | 120Hz |
$699.99 $599.99 at Best Buy (save $100)
The most powerful version of once of the best PC gaming handhelds just got hit with the deal stick. The Asus Ally surprised us at launch with its relatively low price (for a premium Asus product). Now it's even cheaper. Has the time come for you to get in on some handheld gaming action?
Price check: Amazon $720
Gigabyte G5 | Core i7 12650H | RTX 4060 | 8GB DDR5-4800 | 512GB SSD | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz |
$1,099.99 $749.99 at Newegg (save $350)
This is a lot of laptop for not very much money. To start with, you're getting a 10-core, 16-thread CPU that will easily cope with pretty much any game you throw at it. There's an RTX 4060 Mobile graphics chip too, that supports DLSS upscaling and frame generation. The main caveats here are that storage is a bit disappointing, so you'll probably want to upgrade it at some point with a large SSD, and 8GB of RAM isn't enough for gaming these days. However, with 16GB of RAM available for under $30 this shouldn't be too much of an issue to upgrade. For portable gaming and school work, though, this Gigabyte G5 laptop will keep you and your wallet happy.
Lenovo Legion 5 | RTX 4060 | AMD Ryzen 7 7735H | 16GB DDR5 | 512GB SSD | 15-inch | 2160 x 1350 | 165Hz |
$999.99 $869.99 at Walmart (save $130)
We've become big fans of Lenovo laptops here at PC Gamer this generation, and this particular budget machine is ticking a lot of boxes. For an RTX 4060 laptop it has to be under $1,000, and you also get a better than average screen, though I'm a little confused over Walmart's listing of it as 2160 x 1350 when Lenovo itself claims a 1440p panel. That 512GB SSD, however, is disappointing, even in a budget laptop, but is a cheap and easy issue to fix if it becomes annoying down the line.
Asus TUF F15 | RTX 4070 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15-inch | 144Hz | 1080p | 16GB DDR4-3200 | 1TB SSD |
$1,399.99 $979.99 at Best Buy (save $420)
The sub $1,000 RTX 4070 laptop is back! The TUF range of laptops from Asus is its more value-oriented range, but they're still solid machines and when they're this price, with this level of spec, they're hard to ignore. This is the cheapest I've seen an RTX 4070 laptop on sale for, and your only real compromise is the last-gen CPU and memory combo... which isn't much of a compromise for a gaming laptop.
Price check: Amazon $1,228.90
MSI Katana 15 | RTX 4070 | Intel Core i7 13620H | 15-inch | 144Hz | 1080p | 16GB DDR5-4000 | 1TB SSD |
$1,379.99 $1,199 at Newegg (save $179)
It doesn't have the highest possible spec for an RTX 4070 GPU at 105W. But this is still a pretty appealing overall package for the money. It also sports the latest 13th Gen Intel CPUs, a 1TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD and 16GB of RAM. A solid proposition for the money, then.
Price check: Amazon $1,199.99
MSI Katana 17 | RTX 4070 | Intel Core i7 13620H | 17.3-inch | 144Hz | 1080p | 32GB DDR5-4000 | 1TB SSD |
$1,399 $1,199 at Newegg (save $200)
The bigger 17-inch sibling to the Katana 15, you get a larger screen plus an upgrade to 32GB of RAM for exactly the same price, with a cracking RTX 4070/i7 combo just like its little brother. Not bad. OK, not everyone wants a 17-inch lump. But if you do prefer a bigger portable rig, this is quite the deal.
Price check: Amazon $1,649.99
Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | Nvidia RTX 4060 | AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS | 14-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD |
$1,599.99 $1,199.99 at Best Buy (save $400)
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, it is still a good deal for this delightful little laptop.
Price check: Newegg $1,764.99
Alienware x14 R2 | 14-inch | QHD+ 165Hz | RTX 4060 |Core i7 13620H | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB |
$1,899.99 $1,399.99 at Alienware (save $500)
The world's thinnest 14-inch gaming laptop they say. It's certainly far cheaper than Razer's 14-inch Blade, with comes in $600 higher with the same GPU. A very slick little machine for portable gaming action.
Asus TUF A17 | Nvidia RTX 4070 | AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS | 17.3-inch | 144Hz | 1080p | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD |
$1,799.99 $1,399.99 at Newegg (save $400)
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's 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.
Acer Predator Helios 16 | GeForce RTX 4070 | Core i7 13700HX | 16-inch | 1600p | 240Hz IPS | 16GB DDR5-5600 | 1TB SSD |
$1,899.99 $1,399.99 at B&H Photo (save $700)
We're big fans of the latest Acer Predator laptop (read our review of the RTX 4080 version) and this RTX 4070 machine has got a lot about it, too. The Core i7 13700HX CPU is ostensibly an eight-core chip with E-core benefits. That means you get 16 full power processing threads, and a further eight cores to take it up to a total of 24 threads. For a $1,400 laptop that's pretty tasty. It's also sporting some speedy DDR5 memory, a full 1TB SSD and a 500nit IPS display with a 2560 x 1600 native resolution. Sadly, it's not the Mini-LED version in the top Helios 16 models, but it's still a bright, colorful screen.
MSI Pulse 15 | RTX 4070 | Intel Core i9 13900H | 32GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | 1440p | 165Hz |
$1,899 $1,599 at Newegg (save $300)
It's not a huge saving but this laptop offers a higher-spec CPU, bigger screen, 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.
Price check: Walmart $1,599 | Amazon $1,599
MSI Vector | RTX 4080 | Intel Core i9 12900HX | 16GB DDR5-4800 | 1TB SSD | 1200p | 144Hz |
$2,099 $1,599 at Newegg (save $500)
This is the most affordable RTX 4080-based gaming laptop I've found, possibly at any time this year. It's not some hobbled GPU implementation either, using a 175W design of the graphics card to give you the full gaming performance. It's certainly not the most beautiful laptop you will see, nor the slimmest (though that helps keep it cool), and I'd rather a higher refresh rate panel and a bit more RAM, but it's a great price for an otherwise high-spec gaming machine.
Price check: Amazon $2,091.05
Razer Blade 14 | Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti | AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX | 14-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | 16GB DDR5-5600 | 1TB NVMe SSD |
$3,499.99 $1,799.99 at Razer (save $1,600)
This is last year's model with the bigger chin and RTX 30 graphics. But the latest Razer 14 with an RTX 4060, which is comfortably slower than the RTX 3080 Ti in this model, goes for $2,399. So, if you're feeling Razer's smallest gaming laptop, this deal is. definitely worth considering.
Price check: Amazon $1,799.99 (out of stock)
Razer Blade 17 | Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti | Intel Core i7 12800H | 17.3-inch | 1440p | 240Hz | 16GB DDR5-5600 | 1TB NVMe SSD |
$3,199 $1,999.99 at B&H Photo (save $1,200)
It's a last-gen model, and it's still not cheap by normal laptop standards. But you'd have paid over $3,000 for this laptop a year ago. So, if you're in the market for a big Razer, this is a very nice deal. The RTX 3080 Ti is likewise still a very decent mobile GPU.
Price check: Amazon $3,109.99
Alienware m16 | Core i9 13900HX | RTX 4080 | 16-inch | 16GB DDR5-4800 | 1TB SSD | 240Hz | 2560 x 1600 |
$2,699.99 $2,099.99 at Best Buy (save $600)
Alienware laptops are often pricey versus the competition, though we can be thankful they're not quite as premium as a Razer device. Right now you can shave some money off this m16 with an RTX 4080 and one of Intel's top mobile chips, which also has an awesome screen for gaming on it at 240Hz, QHD+. It might not be the cheapest RTX 4080 laptop, but it's a good deal on a high-end Alienware laptop right now.

Medion Erazer Deputy P25 | AMD Ryzen 5 5600H | Nvidia RTX 3060 | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD |
£969.97 £697.97 at Laptops Direct (save £272)
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 |
£1,199.00 £847.97 at Amazon (save £351.03)
We're big fans of this little budget gaming laptop, and our Jacob loved its "great gaming performance" (check out our review). With over £300 off the original price, this powerful notebook is a great deal today.
Price check: Laptops Direct £847.97
Asus TUF A17 | AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS | AMD RTX 4070 | 17.3-inch | 1080p | 144Hz| 16GB DDR5 | 512GB SSD |
£1,499.99 £1,349.99 at Amazon (save £150)
This laptop has a great CPU and GPU combination, and is more than good enough to run the latest games at 1080p high settings. The amount of storage is disappointing though and you'd probably want to upgrade that sooner rather than later. It's not the biggest of savings but there aren't any RTX 4070 laptops at this price right now.
Price check: Overclockers UK £1,349.99
MSI Stealth 17 Studio | Core i7-13700H | GeForce RTX 4070 | 17.3-inch | 1440p | 240Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD |
£2,649.97 £1,697.97 at Laptops Direct (save £952)
This big-screen machine packs the RTX 4070 into a compelling studio package that's also a great option for gamers, too. The 17-inch display rocks a 2560 x 1440 resolution and a 240Hz refresh, making it a good-looking panel for both creators and Alan Wake 2. The back up spec of 16GB DDR5 and a 1TB SSD are the expected pairing for the 14-core, 20-thread CPU at its heart, but is still welcome at this price.
Price check: Scan £1,699.99
Asus ROG Strix G16 | Intel Core i7 13650H | Nvidia RTX 4080 | 16-inch | 1200p | 165Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD |
£2,249.99 £1,802.49 at Amazon (save £447.50)
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.

What should I look out for in a Cyber Monday gaming laptop deal?
The best Cyber Monday gaming laptop deals will deliver high-performance hardware for a knockdown price, or at the very least not come with an overly inflated price tag.
But it doesn't automatically scan that just because something has a three-figure discount that it will be worth the money. You need to keep an eye on what parts are being used, what else you get for your cash, and whether it's actually right for you.
Things are tough for PC gaming hardware, as it stands today. But companies are still aiming to shift stock so expect some discounts on current-gen kit. Don't be fooled into parting with money for anything beyond the last generation of GPUs, however. It's unlikely there'll be a laptop with an Nvidia 20-series graphics card inside it that's worth buying this Cyber Monday, unless you can find a wonderfully cheap deal.
Keep an eye out for storage, and memory size too. That's most true at the low end of the market, where manufacturers may aim to keep prices low by using single sticks of memory and therefore halving the potential memory bandwidth. That might not be a problem in the very cheapest of gaming laptops, however, where the GPU will make the most difference to your experience.
When is Cyber Monday 2023?
Cyber Monday officially starts on November 27. But once the day itself is over, you can bet you'll see leftover discounts spilling into Cyber Week, too.
So, buckle up for some great gaming laptop deals, as we're seeing a bunch of the best gaming laptops from 2023 go on sale.
