This year’s Black Friday deals are starting early, and like every year, Black Friday laptop deals will likely be among the most popular offers. For gamers, Black Friday gaming laptop deals are also available, and if you’re looking to get a good discount, you should begin by looking at the Best Buy Black Friday deals that are now available. One of Best Buy’s most enticing gaming laptop offers is for the Acer Nitro 5, which is being sold for $620, down $80 from its original price of $700, as part of the one-day Best Buy Treat Yourself Black Friday Sale that ends at midnight.

The Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, allowing it to run even the most demanding games without a hitch, not to mention enabling multitasking between apps and browser tabs. Gamers need every advantage that they can get, especially in online multiplayer sessions, and the Acer Nitro 5 will make sure that you don’t lose due to slowdowns or stuttering.

Games are clear with vivid colors on the Acer Nitro 5’s 15.6-inch Full HD display, with Acer’s ComfyView technology that reduces distracting reflections. The gaming laptop, however, remains lightweight even with a screen of that size, weighing in at just a shade over 5 pounds and measuring less than an inch thin.

The Acer Nitro 5 is equipped with a 256GB SSD, which offers faster start-up times, eliminates noise, lowers heat production, and reduces the draw of power from the battery, compared with traditional hard drives.

If you are looking to buy a gaming laptop for Black Friday, you don’t have to wait until November 27. The Acer Nitro 5 is currently available in the Best Buy Treat Yourself Black Friday Sale with an $80 discount that brings its price down to $620 from its original price of $700. You only have until midnight to take advantage of this offer, and with Best Buy’s Black Friday Price Guarantee, which will grant you a refund of the difference if the Acer Nitro 5’s price goes even lower between now and November 28, you shouldn’t think twice about clicking that Buy Now button.

Best gaming console deals: cheapest prices on PS5, Xbox S and X and Switch
father and son playing video games

Picking a console is a big decision. They're not cheap, so unless gaming is your passion, you probably don't want to spend the cash to grab all three of the major ones. That's why we've collected the best prices on every version of the three major consoles. Below you'll find Xbox Series S and X deals, PlayStation 5 deals, and Nintendo Switch deals (on all the various versions). We've listed the best prices at the major retailers, and any deals we could find among them. Once you've grabbed your console, check out the best video games deals to go along with them.
Xbox Series S deals -- starting at $280

The Xbox Series S is the less powerful but cheaper option out of the newest generation Xbox line. When comparing the Xbox Series S versus the Xbox Series X, the Series S takes a hit in all the component categories. That means it's not quite as fast. But if you're not hung up on getting the optimal performance out of your system, you'll actually notice very few differences. The two biggest ones are the Series S's inability to play in 8K, and its lack of a disc drive. Most people don't even have 8K TVs, so that shouldn't be an issue. If you're alright with downloading all of your games straight to the console's memory (and you have a separate DVD or Blu-Ray player), the Series S will work fine. It's quite a bit smaller anyway, and easier to fit on a shelf.

HP Victus 15 Gaming Laptop -- $680, was $900

The HP Victus 15 is a relatively affordable gaming laptop, but it doesn't sacrifice performance because it's powered by the Intel Core i5-13420H processor and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Graphics, with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. It's got a 15.6-inch screen with Full HD resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate, and it comes with Windows 11 Home pre-loaded. An enlarged touchpad and backlit keyboard add to the gamer aesthetic for less.

Dell Black Friday in July Sale: Laptops, gaming PCs and more
Three different color variants of the Dell G16 gaming laptop on a table.

You may be confused to hear of a Black Friday deal in July, but it's mostly what most retailers call their big July sale, which they often use to compete with and profit from Amazon's Prime Day. As such, many great deals are floating around, including from Dell, which has a discount on pretty much everything, from laptops and PCs to monitors. So, without wasting too much time, let's jump right into some of their best deals.
Dell 27 Monitor SE2722H -- $120, was $160

If you're looking for a great budget monitor, you don't have to go further than the Dell SE2722H, which gives you a great VA panel and thin bezels for a great viewing experience. While it only comes in an FHD resolution, it does have a 75Hz refresh rate, which isn't necessarily ideal for gaming, but if you've grabbed one of these cheap GPU deals, it's a nice option. You also get AMD Freesync thrown in, which we appreciate, and the 178-degree viewing angle means you don't have to be head-on all the time, so it's great if you want to use it for console gaming, especially with something like the Xbox Series S.
