If there's been one product that's somehow withstood the worst of the chip shortage, it's gaming laptops. We even suspect we'll see Black Friday gaming laptop deals cropping up in the lead up to the big shopping event. That's not to say gaming laptops are immune to today's technological woes, though, and no doubt the best of these will be in high demand.

The key to buying the best laptop will be staying on top of the latest deals, but don't worry, we don't expect you to do that on your own. We're already manning the deals machine, which is gradually spluttering back to life in the lead up to the Black Friday at the end of November, and we'll be making sure to load up the very best Black Friday gaming laptop deals below right the way through the event and into Cyber Monday.

What you want to look for in a gaming laptop in 2021 is, ideally, one of the latest GPUs, such as Nvidia's RTX 30-series. You can find some older models with RTX 20-series still kicking around though, although we don't recommend paying over the odds for one when something better is about for less. You'll also want to consider newer CPUs, many of which come with greater core counts than the usual four-core lot. And just make sure to be weary to single-stick configurations, which could cause you to lose precious performance because an OEM or manufacturer wanted to cut some costs.

Below are all the best gaming laptop deals we've found so far, or which have been discovered through our automatic deals widgets. We'll continue to update this page in the lead up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, adding the best deals to the top and removing deals that have expired.

When will Black Friday gaming laptop deals start to appear?

We suspect manufacturers will try and pre-empt the rush of Black Friday deals at the end of November with their own events throughout the month. That means we could see deals popping up from the likes of Dell, Lenovo, Asus, Razer, and more as early as the end of October/start of November.

What to look out for in a Black Friday gaming laptop

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.
