If you're on the lookout for a deal on a decent gaming laptop, you're in luck. You can grab the Acer Predator Helios 300 gaming laptop for $1,299 right now at Best Buy. That gives you a pretty substantial saving of $300 off one of our favourite gaming laptops.

This Acer Predator Helios 300 comes with an Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a Geforce RTX 2060 graphics card, meaning you should be able to play most modern games without too much of a problem. The 512GB SSD may seem a little on the conservative side but you can always pick up an external hard drive or a portable SSD if you find yourself running out of space. 

This particular laptop also boasts a 15.6 inch full HD IPS display with a 1920x1080 resolution. The 144Hz refresh rate, coupled with the respectable 3ms response time should make it a solid choice if you're into competitive shooters or fighting games.
