While GPUs and some other parts have continued to drop in price for months now, the best gaming laptops are still as expensive as ever. If you've been looking for a budget option, the Dell G3 15 is currently on sale for $689.99 from Office Depot. That's $209 lower than the original price, and significantly cheaper than most other laptops with similar hardware.
The full specifications include a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS display, an Intel Core i5-8300H processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 6GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 MaxQ graphics card. With that hardware, you can easily play less-demanding games like Fortnite and Overwatch at 60FPS, as well as some newer AAA titles like Apex Legends.
The only downside is that the laptop utilizes a 1TB hard drive with 8GB of SSD cache, instead of just using a regular SSD. But on the bright side, there are plenty of connectivity options—including 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI 2.0, USB 3.1, an SD card slot, and even Thunderbolt 3.
Most other laptops with a 6GB GTX 1060 cost around $1,000, so if you've been waiting to get a budget portable gaming setup, this isn't a bad choice at all. We're yet to see the 20 series GPUs widely integrated into laptops, so this is a decent option.
