Gaming laptops have come through the recent hardware shortages basically unscathed. As a result, the best of them are going to be in high demand over the holidays. Fortunately, then, Black Friday is here, and deals have been cropping up across all the main stores. This is now the ideal time to get yourself a nice discount, whatever your budget.

But which is the best gaming laptop for you, and how can you be sure you're getting the best deal? Don't worry, we don't expect you to do that on your own. With our expertise at hand, we're be making sure to filter the very best Black Friday gaming laptop deals into the list below, right the way through into Cyber Monday.

For a great 2021 gaming laptop deal, you'll want to look out for one with a more recent GPU, such as Nvidia's RTX 30-series. You can find some older models with RTX 20-series still kicking around, though we don't recommend paying over the odds for one when there will be plenty of deals on newer GPU laptop models. A newer CPU is also a good idea. A greater core count will give you more processing power to handle your workload, but be wary of single-stick configurations—these could cause you to lose precious performance because an OEM or manufacturer wanted to cut costs.

Below are all the best gaming laptop deals we've found so far, or which have been discovered through our automatic deals widgets. We'll continue to update this page throughout Black Friday and Cyber Monday, adding the best deals to the top and removing deals that have expired.

Where are the best Black Friday gaming laptop deals?

Black Friday gaming laptop deals

Asus ROG Flow X13 | 13.4-inch | Ryzen 9 5980HS | GTX 1650 + RTX 3080 Dock | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £2,999.97 £2,399.97 at Box (save £600)
Asus' X13 is one ultra desirable bit of kit, mixing the portability of a 13-inch touchscreen notebook with the gaming power of an external RTX 3080 GPU. Mix in 32GB RAM, a 1TB SSD, and AMD's might octa-core Ryzen 9 CPU, you have a notebook for all occasions. And one with a hefty discount, too.

Alienware M15 R6

Alienware M15 R6 | Intel Core i7 11800H | Nvidia RTX 3080 | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £2,449 £1,999 at Dell UK (save £450)
This is one of the few RTX 3080 laptops I've seen under £2,000 so far, and it's a good mix of specs for high-end gaming. That includes a 360Hz 1080p display, which will really make the most of Nvidia's top mobile GPU in most games.

MSI Katana GF66 | 15.6-inch | Intel Core i7 11800H | Nvidia RTX 3070 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,399.99

MSI Katana GF66 | 15.6-inch | Intel Core i7 11800H | Nvidia RTX 3070 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,399.99 £1,229.95 at Overclockers (save £170)
This is an impressive spec for the money; any time you can bag an RTX 3070-powered gaming laptop for under £1,250 you're doing well. Throw in a high-refresh rate panel, a full 16GB of memory and a relatively generous 512GB SSD and this is a system that will last you years.

Intel Core i7 10750H | 16GB  RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,599.97

Razer Blade 15 | 15.6-inch | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 10750H | 16GB  RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,599.97 £1,299.97 at Box (save £300)
This is far from the cheapest RTX 3060-powered gaming laptop on this list, but I wanted to point it out as it's a Razer Blade 15, our favourite gaming laptop and an incredibly popular design, too. The specs could be a little more generous in terms of storage space, but at least you've got a great processor beneath the hood working alongside that capable Ampere GPU. And all inside Razer's lovely chassis. 

AMD Ryzen 7 5800H | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,149.97

Victus by HP 16 | 16.1-inch | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 7 5800H | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,149.97 £949.97 at Box (save £200)
While familiar in specs, the HP Victus has a unique style and screen size, despite maintaining a smaller chassis. It's generally pretty smart, too, and that specs list offers a heady mix of GPU and CPU grunt with the right amount of RAM for us gamers.

Asus TUF Dash F15

Asus TUF Dash F15 | 15.6-inch | Intel Core i7 11370H | Nvidia RTX 3060 | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,099 £899 at Very (save £200)
Sporting Intel's 11th Gen ultraportable gaming CPU, the Dash F15 pairs a decent processor with a very good gaming GPU, and all for an affordable price. With a 144Hz screen and speedy SSD, this is a great sub-£1,000 gaming laptop.

Asus TUF Gaming F17 (2021)

Asus TUF Gaming F15 FX506 | 15.6-inch | Nvidia RTX 3050 | Intel Core i5 11400H | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £879 £699.99 at Ebuyer (save £180)
Fitted with an Ampere generation GPU, this laptop is able to offer the benefits of an RTX 30-series card, such as DLSS, on a tighter budget. One way it's hit that is by slimming the RAM down to 8GB, though this can be upgraded after the fact. The 512GB SSD is plenty big enough for a handful of games with your OS too.

HP Omen 15 | 15.6-inch | Nvidia RTX 3070 | AMD Ryzen 7 5800H | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,499.97

HP Omen 15 | 15.6-inch | Nvidia RTX 3070 | AMD Ryzen 7 5800H | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,499.97 £1,399.97 at Box (save £100)
This Black Friday there are some decent RTX 3070 gaming laptops around with impressive discounts on them if you look hard enough. This HP Omen machine pairs Nvidia's powerful GPU with AMD's excellent Ryzen 7 5800H eight-core, 16-thread CPU, and comes in under £1,400. The 165Hz 1080p screen is another bright spot in this quality notebook.

Black Friday office laptop deals

M1 SoC | 8-core CPU | 7-core GPU | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,529

Apple MacBook Air | 13-inch | M1 SoC | 8-core CPU | 7-core GPU | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,529 £1,399 at Very (save £200)
Look, oranges aren't the only fruit, and nor is x86 the only processor design worth a damn. Love them or hate them, Apple has created a fantastic slice of silicon with the M1 chip and it makes for an outstanding productivity notebook, even in this slight MacBook Air form factor. It's pretty rubbish for gaming though.

What should I look out for in a Black Friday gaming laptop deal?

The best Black Friday 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 10-series graphics card inside it that's worth buying this Black Friday, 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.
