With Cyber Monday upon us, now is a great time to look for a laptop that has what it takes to smoothly run your favorite games. We're seeing massive Cyber Monday gaming laptop deals from brands like Asus, MSI, Alienware and Razer this Cyber Monday and the deals are just rolling in.
Before you add anything to your cart, make sure you know which ingredients make for a good gaming laptop. As a quick refresher, the most powerful gaming laptops pack either an Intel Core i7 or Core i9 CPU and a 20-series Nvidia RTX discrete graphics card. For faster refresh rates and better battery life, we generally recommend going with a 1080p display. Also, if you like a good light show, make sure the gaming laptop you buy has an RGB-backlit keyboard.
Keeping that in mind, here are the best Cyber Monday gaming laptop deals.
