There’s never been a better time to be looking for cheap laptop deals thanks to the ongoing 4th of July sales from Best Buy, Amazon, and Dell.
While there are literally hundreds of gaming laptop deals on offer right now, four have caught our fancy in particular. First up is this Lenovo Legion 5 for just $949.99 (was $1,099.99), which features everything we at TechRadar like to see in a gaming laptop deal. It’s got a powerful 10th Gen Core i7 processor, a GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, 8GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and a 120Hz refresh rate monitor, which is an often overlooked feature that manufacturers like to cheap out on. With $150 off, this is definitely a good candidate if you’re looking for a solid performer for under $1,000.
If you are on more of a budget, however, then check out this Acer Nitro 5 at Amazon for $599 – which offers the cheapest Core i5 9300H, GTX 1650 combo we think we’ve ever seen. Dell also has a fantastic 4th of July sale on right now, which is offering up this New Dell G5 15 for just $842.79 (was $959.99). With an Intel Core i5-10300H, GTX 1660 Ti, 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD, this machine is definitely not quite at the same level as the Lenovo above, but it is much friendlier on the wallet – and hey, you could even spend that $100 saving in the Steam summer sale.
Last but definitely not least is this Asus Zephyrus G14 for just $999.99 (was $1,199), which is the cheapest price we’ve ever seen on our current best gaming laptop of 2020. This little monster is packing an AMD Ryzen 7 4800HS, 512GB SSD, 8GB of RAM, and a GTX 1650 – which make it surprisingly powerful for its size.
