If you’re buying a new gaming laptop, you should also set aside some money to buy new games.

It just so happens that there are two big PC game sales going on right now.

Firstly, it is Steam Autumn Salewhich started yesterday and lasts until November 29 at 10.00 PT.

But it is also Epic Play Black Friday Sale, with games up to 75% off. It also ends on November 29.

Some agreements, which Cyberpunk 2077 for $29.99 and Spider-Man: Remastered for $44.99 can be found on both platforms, although there are some exclusives, so be sure to check them both out!

This cheap HP gaming laptop dropped under $500

The HP Victus 15 is one of the best gaming laptops under $1,000 because it starts at rock-bottom prices for budget buyers. For Black Friday, it’s down to just $379.99 at Best Buy, down from a listed $800 price tag.

This should make the Victus particularly attractive to the most budget-conscious buyers. It also happens to be the exact configuration we reviewed back in August. The GTX 1650 wasn’t exactly powerful when we tested this laptop, but if you’re willing to turn down some settings, you’ll be able to play most games.

This retail configuration also includes an Intel Core i5-12450H, which we found to be strong for productivity work on the side. There’s also 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 1080p display supports a refresh rate of 144 Hz.

However, our review unit had single-channel RAM, so you may want to consider upgrading it at a later date.

Razer’s AMD-based gaming laptop, the Blade 14, is on sale at many stores, including Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, and B&H.

This configuration has an AMD Ryzen 5900HX and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD, as well as a 2560 x 1440, 165 Hz display. We reviewed a very similar configuration – albeit with an RTX 3070 Ti.

We liked how thin and light the laptop was, and the 1440p display was sharp and colorful. It also happens to charge over USB Type-C, although you’ll want the proprietary connector for gaming.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 is $599.99 at Amazon

The Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3, one of the best gaming laptops under $1,000, is on sale at Amazon ahead of Black Friday.

It’s not the same configuration we tested. This one has an AMD Ryzen 5-6600H, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050, a 120 Hz, 1080p display, 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD. Ours had an Intel Core i5-12500H and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, but otherwise the specs were similar.

We liked the laptop for its modern style, surprisingly decent speakers and, of course, the low price. With the sale in mind, you may want to consider upgrading your RAM and adding more storage when you need it.

Amazon’s sale also includes three free months of Xbox Game Pass.

MSI GE66 Raider $200 off at Newegg

The MSI GE66 Raider, a smaller variant of our favorite gaming laptop, the GE76 Raider, is on sale at Newegg. You’ll have to add it to your cart to see the price, but we’ll tell you here: it’s $2,499, which knocks $200 off the regular price.

Newegg’s sales configuration combines an 11th Gen Intel Core i9-11980HK with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 GPU, which is plenty of power for high performance. It also has 32GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage.

Notably, the listing says it runs Windows 10 out of the box. It might be great for purists, although it shouldn’t upgrade to Windows 1.

The 15.6-inch touchscreen doesn’t have a resolution listed, so we’re guessing it’s 1080p (a separate 4K option specifies) and runs up to 165Hz.

Gigabyte gaming laptop with RTX 3060 is $649 on sale

Typically, a gaming laptop with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 gaming laptop will go for well over $1000. Sometimes $1500. But the Gigabyte A5 K1 costs just $649 at Newegg (opens in a new tab) with the promotional code ZIP11 in the box.

It previously sold for $1,199, and the regular retail price is $719. But that promo code gets you to the low price of $649.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600H isn’t the latest CPU, although the 16GB DDR4 RAM and 512GB SSD are some pretty decent specs for the price. The 1080p display has a 144Hz refresh rate, and the RTX 3060 should be able to push lower games to take advantage of that.
