These are all the Black Friday gaming laptop deals still live going into the weekend, but we're now switching focus to what's coming up with the Cyber Monday gaming laptop deals (opens in new tab). That's where all the latest and greatest discounts will now be curated going forward, so come take a look.

Discounts like an RTX 3060 notebook for just $649 (opens in new tab) and an RTX 3080-based rig for just $1,569.99 (opens in new tab), mean this is still a mighty tempting time to take the plunge on a new gaming laptop no matter your budget.

We're seeing last year's stock being flushed out ready for portable versions of Nvidia's 40-series graphics cards set to hit us sometime next year. While we wait for Nvidia to figure out how to slim down those monsters, you can bet you'll be able to find RTX 3060-powered gaming laptops on sale, all the way up to RTX 3080 machines if we're lucky.

When it comes to AMD gaming laptop deals, they've always been less common—at least on the GPU side. And although AMD is nearing the release of its RDNA 3 graphics cards, portable versions won't be around for a while yet. In other words, cheap AMD-powered gaming laptops will be fewer than Nvidia-powered ones. But keep an eye out for the odd all AMD gem.

For the best possible gaming laptop deals this Black Friday weekend, we wholeheartedly recommend going for a more recent GPU—something in Nvidia's RTX 30-series or equivalent, ideally. There will be retailers still trying to flog you an RTX 20-series laptop for over $1,000 no doubt, but don't be fooled. You can easily find a low-end 30-series lappys for less than that, so double check before you get your wallet out for an older card. A 12th Gen Intel CPU or equivalent is your best bet to stay as current as possible. And you'll want to watch out for single channel RAM configurations, which can impede performance (1x 8GB especially is a no-no).

Below are all the best gaming laptop deals we feel are worth spending your hard-earned money on. We will continue to update through Black Friday weekend and beyond, and once the fun's over, we'll then make sure to link you through to any Cyber Monday hubs right here.

Black Friday gaming laptop deals in the US

Acer Nitro 5 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $798 (opens in new tab)

Acer Nitro 5 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $798 $649 at Walmart (save $149) (opens in new tab)
Think this might just be the cheapest RTX 3060-based gaming laptop we've found this Black Friday. For this much cash you're usually looking at a GTX 1650 Ti based machine, at best. But here, you get a genuine 1080p gaming GPU, and a quality AMD Ryzen CPU, too. The 8GB of RAM is a bit weak for productivity, but the 144Hz screen and 512GB SSD go some way to make up for that slight shortfall.

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 7 5800HS | 14-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,399.99 (opens in new tab)

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 7 5800HS | 14-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,399.99 $899.99 at Best Buy (save $500) (opens in new tab)
If you don't want a hulking gaming laptop, let me introduce the Zephyrus 14: a 14-incher that can game without busting your bank balance or your shoulder when lugging it around. No-nonsense specs in a delightful package. That $500 saving doesn't hurt either.

Acer Predator Helios 300 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 512GB SSD | $1,499.99 (opens in new tab)

Acer Predator Helios 300 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 512GB SSD | $1,499.99 $999.99 at Best Buy (save $500) (opens in new tab)
There are plenty of RTX 3060 gaming laptops for $999, but what sets the Helios 300 apart is that traditional gaming chassis ensures you've got plenty of airflow to keep the 130W RTX 3060 running harder for longer. The rest of the spec is tasty at this price tag too.

Gigabyte Aorus 5 SE4 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,299.99 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte Aorus 5 SE4 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,299.99 $1,149.99 at Newegg (save $150) (opens in new tab)
A new 12th Gen Intel CPU combined with a powerful 130W RTX 3070 for $1,150 is a solid offering. That's especially true since this one's paired with a fantastically speedy 360Hz panel. There's plenty of RAM for your games and the chassis is attractive too.

Dell G15 Gaming Laptop | Nvidia RTX 3070 | AMD Ryzen 7 6800H | 15.6-inch | 165Hz | 1080p | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,599 (opens in new tab)

Dell G15 Gaming Laptop | Nvidia RTX 3070 | AMD Ryzen 7 6800H | 15.6-inch | 165Hz | 1080p | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,599 $1,349.99 at Dell (save $250) (opens in new tab)
Here's a very well-rounded gaming laptop worth the money asked for it. The RTX 3070 is a great mobile gaming GPU with the power to make the most of the G15's 165Hz screen. Beyond that, however, you have AMD's excellent Ryzen 7 6800H. That's a chip that's mighty for gaming and multitasking, so this laptop is really well-suited to all sorts of use cases.

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | AMD RX 6800S | AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS | 14-inch | 1600p | 120Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,899.99 (opens in new tab)

Asus ROG Zephyrus 14 | AMD RX 6800S | AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS | 14-inch | 1600p | 120Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1,899.99 $1,399.99 at Best Buy (save $500) (opens in new tab)
Ah man, I am sorely tempted, because the G14 is one of the loveliest gaming laptops around. And that's from someone hopelessly in love with the Razer Blade 14. The combination of top-end Ryzen mobile CPU and performance Radeon GPU is impressive. That RX 6800S is only a shade behind the RTX 3070 in notebook form, and the rest of the spec rocks, too, especially that 120Hz 2560 x 1600 resolution screen. And it's the Moonlight White version as well. Mmmm.

Legion 5 Gen 7 | Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti | AMD Ryzen 7 6800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | $2,199.99 (opens in new tab)

Legion 5 Gen 7 | Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti | AMD Ryzen 7 6800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB DDR5 | 1TB SSD | $2,199.99 $1,450 at Lenovo (save $749.99) (opens in new tab)
The mobile take on the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is a beastly GPU that'll chomp through games, especially at this laptop's 1080p native resolution. You'll stand a good chance of hitting that 165Hz refresh rate at the very least. You also get a powerful AMD CPU, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and a healthy 1TB NVMe SSD. There are a bunch of ecoupons Lenovo has in place that you can add to the basket, too: BLACKFRIDAYGAME and HOLIDAYSURPRISE. That's how you get the extra discount down to $1,450.

Gigabyte Aero 5 XE4 | Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 4K | 16GB DDR4 | 1TB SSD | $2,199 (opens in new tab)

Gigabyte Aero 5 XE4 | Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti | Intel Core i7 12700H | 15.6-inch | 4K | 16GB DDR4 | 1TB SSD | $2,199 $1,490.57 at Newegg (save $709.42) (opens in new tab)
This deal isn't as hot as it was early Friday, but it's still a good price. For the cost of some RTX 3060 laptops, you can net an RTX 3070 Ti, a high-end up-to-date Intel CPU, plenty of RAM and storage, and all packed into a chassis that we've been fans of for a long time. It's billed as more of a creator laptop, as an Nvidia Studio laptop, and that's what we've always used these laptops for on-team. Hence the 4K resolution. But you could still game at high-res on this machine with the spec it delivers.

MSI GP66 Leopard | Intel Core i7 11800H | Nvidia RTX 3080 | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,849 (opens in new tab)

MSI GP66 Leopard | Intel Core i7 11800H | Nvidia RTX 3080 | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,849 $1,569.99 at Walmart (save $279.01) (opens in new tab)
It's an old code, sir, but it checks out. That's still an RTX 3080 GPU in there, even if it's plugged into an 11th Gen Intel CPU it'll still game like a hero. The rest of the spec is pretty decent, too, and means you'll have an RTX 3080-based system for less than an RTX 3070 Ti.

AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 300Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,199.99 (opens in new tab)

Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 | RTX 3080 | AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 300Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,199.99 $1,799.99 at Newegg (save $400) (opens in new tab)
An immense component combo here, one that's sure to smash anything you throw at it, especially at its native 1080p resolution. It's not the cheapest we've seen it, but you may even be able to make the most of that speedy 300Hz refresh rate screen with gear like that under the hood.

Black Friday office laptop deals in the US

Inspiron 15 | Intel Core i5 1135G7 | Intel UHD | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 8GB RAM | 256GB SSD | $599.99 (opens in new tab)

Inspiron 15 | Intel Core i5 1135G7 | Intel UHD | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 8GB RAM | 256GB SSD | $599.99 $379.99 at Dell (save $220) (opens in new tab)
If you're not bothered about gaming and simply need a laptop for work, then this Dell machine is a good place to start. The Tiger Lake Core i5 may be getting on a bit now, but it's still capable enough. The RAM and SSD aren't much to get excited about, but for $400 it's acceptable for a school machine with a decent size screen.

Dell XPS 13 | Intel Core i7 1250U | Intel UHD | 13-inch | 1920 x 1200 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,349 (opens in new tab)

Dell XPS 13 | Intel Core i7 1250U | Intel UHD | 13-inch | 1920 x 1200 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,349 $999 at Dell (save $350) (opens in new tab)
The Dell XPS 13 is one of the best office notebooks around. I've been in love with the design since I first got my hands on one, and they're outstanding devices. This machine comes with a healthy complement of DDR5 memory and a relatively capacious SSD, too. The CPU only has a pair of Performance Cores, but with a further eight Efficient Alder Lake cores there's a lot of multithreaded performance baked inside that slim chassis.

ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 | Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti | AMD Ryzen 7 5800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 60Hz | 16B RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,399.99 (opens in new tab)

ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 | Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti | AMD Ryzen 7 5800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 60Hz | 16B RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,399.99 $799.99 at Best Buy (save $600) (opens in new tab)
Atop a great entry-level hardware spec, you get a lovely OLED panel, though sadly you're locked at 60Hz if you're looking to get some gaming underway. You'd have to turn the settings down to get over 60 fps anyway, and that doesn't make it bad for gaming, just not great for super competitive games. Productivity tasks shouldn't be an issue, though, and this is the cheapest it's ever been.

Black Friday gaming laptop deals in the UK

Medion Erazer Deputy P25 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1099.98 (opens in new tab)

Medion Erazer Deputy P25 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1099.98 £899.99 at Ebuyer (save £199.99) (opens in new tab)
Yeah, it's a chunky chassis to be sure, but this fairly generic gaming laptop does offer a great spec for this money. Its RTX 3060 will be able to drive its 144Hz display at 1080p, and with 16GB of RAM it's not lacking where it matters, either. 

Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3i (opens in new tab)

Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 120Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £899.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Technically not a deal, but one of the cheapest RTX 3060 gaming laptops we've seen so far. Granted there are some sacrifices made to deliver the GPU performance at this price. Notably, the RAM and SSD are pretty miserly, but compromises always have to be made when you're on a tight budget, and the CPU and GPU combination will deliver great gaming performance on the 120Hz 1080p screen.

MSI Katana GF66 | Nvidia RTX 3070 | Core i7 11800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,399 (opens in new tab)

MSI Katana GF66 | Nvidia RTX 3070 | Core i7 11800H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £1,399 £949 at Very (save £450) (opens in new tab)
This machine has been discounted below £1,000 across all the retailers so far this sales season, but this is the cheapest we've seen it at. And to be able to get an RTX 3070 laptop for less than a grand makes this svelte MSI machine a great deal. The only issue I have with the spec is that 512GB SSD, and that there is only a single NVMe slot in which to upgrade your storage.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402RK | AMD RX 6800S | R7-6800HS | 14-inch | 1200p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,799.99 (opens in new tab)

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 GA402RK | AMD RX 6800S | R7-6800HS | 14-inch | 1200p | 144Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,799.99 £1,499.99 at Amazon (save £300) (opens in new tab)
The pure AMD version of the delectable ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14. Compact 14-inch proportions, 144Hz 1200p panel, AMD Radeon RX 6800S graphics, 1TB SSD. What's not to like? OK, it's not 1440p, but 1,920 by 1,200 on a 14-inch panel is plenty.

Razer Blade 14 | NVIDIA RTX 3070 | R9-5900HX | 14-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £2,199 (opens in new tab)

Razer Blade 14 | NVIDIA RTX 3070 | R9-5900HX | 14-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £2,199 £1,549 at Amazon (save £600) (opens in new tab)
Is there a sweeter small form factor gaming lap[top than the Razer Blade 14? This one packs a serious punch thanks to RTX 3070 graphics and an eight-core AMD Ryzen 9 CPU. Add in 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD and you have a comprehensive package. 

| 17.3-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,999.99 (opens in new tab)

HP Omen 17 | Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti | Core i7 12700H | 17.3-inch | 1440p | 165Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £1,999.99 £1,549.99 at HP (save £450) (opens in new tab)
Coming in with a powerful last gen CPU and GPU, this laptop should even be able to make the most of the 165Hz 1440p panel at mid-low settings. Otherwise it's a fantastic spec with a nice big SSD and, of course, some speedy DDR5-4800 RAM topping it off. Juicy.

Dell Alienware m15 R7 (opens in new tab)

Alienware M15 R7 | Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti | AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 165Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | £2,349 £1,879 at Dell (save £470) (opens in new tab)
A very nice machine here, with a powerful CPU/GPU combo that will eat through those frames at the laptop's native 1080p. That's a powerful CPU backing up a great last gen mobile GPU and it even comes topped with some tasty DDR5-4800 RAM. It's a little lacking on the storage side, but it could be worse, for sure.

£2,149.99 (opens in new tab)

Razer Blade 15 base | 15.6-inch | Intel Core i7 11800H | Nvidia RTX 3070 | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | 165Hz | 1440p | £2,149.99 £1,916.99 at Razer (save £233) (opens in new tab)
The specs could be a little more generous in terms of storage space, but the Blade is one of our favourite portable gaming machines. This config comes with a great processor and capable Ampere GPU which should be able to make the most out of that tasty 1440p panel and it's 165Hz refresh.

Razer Blade 17 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 | Intel Core i7 11800H | 17.3-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £2,999.98 (opens in new tab)

Razer Blade 17 | Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 | Intel Core i7 11800H | 17.3-inch | 1080p | 360Hz | 32GB RAM | 1TB SSD | £2,999.98 £1,999.97 at Laptops direct (save $1,000.01) (opens in new tab)
Sure, you're looking at two generations back on the CPU here, but the i7 11800H is still a very relevant processor today. Paired with a beastly RTX 3080 and 32GB of RAM you can bet it'll handle whatever you throw at it in it's native 1080p, and will even work with an external monitor up to 4K. That 1TB SSD wont go amiss either.

While you won't get much, if any, gaming done on this, it is a great office laptop. It's a fairly standard chassis and size, but it's neatly made and offers great connectivity for busy students.

When is Black Friday 2022?

Black Friday 2022 begins today, November 25, and we're likely to see gaming laptop deals from heaps of retailers coming in.

The deals will run all the way through the weekend over November 26 and 27, and into Cyber Monday on November 28. Once the initial panic is over, you can bet to see leftover discounts spilling into Cyber Week, too.

So, buckle up for some great Black Friday gaming laptop deals, as we're expecting a bunch of the best gaming laptops (opens in new tab) from 2022 to go on sale.

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.
