One of the best gaming laptops you can buy is $600 off right now
Cyberpunk 2077 running on the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14.

Best Buy has one of the best gaming laptop deals around right now thanks to having $600 off the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop. It usually costs $1,600 so the discount brings it down to $1,000. That’s pretty great for a well-specced gaming laptop. Even better, it's a rare gaming laptop that is actually portable enough to take around with you. Here’s what you need to know before you commit to hitting the buy button.

Why you should buy the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14
Considered to be one of the best gaming laptops, particularly if you want something highly portable, there’s a ton to love about the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14. It has an AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS processor along with 16GB of memory and 512GB of SSD storage. That’s pretty respectable for the price but what’s even better is its Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 which ensures you can play a lot of the latest games at a great detail level.

Best Buy’s deal of the day is a starter gaming laptop for $700

You don't need to spend thousands of dollars to get into PC gaming because there are gaming laptop deals like Best Buy's offer for the Acer Nitro 5. The starter gaming laptop, which is already relatively affordable at its original price of $950, is currently even cheaper at just $700. You'll be able to use the $250 in savings on video games and gaming accessories, but you'll have to act fast if you want it because we're not sure how much time is remaining before the bargain disappears, and once that happens, we don't know when you'll get another chance at it.

Why you should buy the Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop
The Acer Nitro 5 is equipped with the 12th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics card, and 16GB of RAM. It's not going to challenge the performance of the top-of-the-line models of the best gaming laptops, but it's going to be more than enough to play the best PC games. Some of the more demanding titles may force you to choose low graphics settings, but that's a fine trade-off for a gaming laptop that you can get for less than $1,000.

Our 5 favorite gaming laptop deals in Best Buy’s ‘3-Day Sale’

Gaming laptops are typically quite expensive. To have an effective one, you've got to get good storage, a nice processor, and likely throw in above-average RAM. We've all seen the big towers of pre-built desktop computers — they're big, and that space is totally non-existent in a gaming laptop. In other words, a gaming laptop is a feat of engineering. That's why we're particularly interested in gaming laptop deals, whenever they come up. And right now they're coming up via Best Buy's 3-Day Sale, an aptly named sale that lasts for... three days. It's ending Sunday, so go check these deals out now.
HP Victus 15.6-inch Gaming Laptop — $550, was $800

The key stat/hardware line (AMD Ryzen 5 7535HS processor, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 graphics card, 512GB SSD storage) of the HP Victus can sound intimidating, even with 8GB of RAM. That's why we're delightfully shocked that this laptop is nearing the $500 mark after discounts. For your gaming needs, it also has an anti-glare monitor with 144Hz refresh rate. While it still won't beat using the best ethernet cables, the WiFi 6 standard will help you get your games downloaded fast. Other features gamers will enjoy are the full keyboard with numpad (traditional ASCII-based roguelikes, anyone?) to AI noise removal for clear communication with your teammates.
