Why buy a new fridge when you can grab a gaming laptop?
Finally thinking of retiring ye ol’ current gaming laptop? Struggling to play the latest titles at non-blurry graphics settings? This Presidents Day we’re spotting some decent and great gaming laptop deals from major manufacturers, from more-reasonably-priced Alienware laptops to HP and Dell budget rigs.
In the best value-vs.-performance department we have two sub-$800 gaming laptop picks: Dell has an Inspiron 15 7000 series gaming laptop at $782.49 after a $50 coupon (SAVE50). It comes with a Quad Core i5-7300HQ Kaby Lake 7th-gen processor, GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, and a 256GB SSD. Over at HP, they are discounting the Omen 15t with Quad Core i7-7700HQ and GeForce GTX 1050 to only $799.99 (no coupon required). Both of these machines will run modern games without a sweat at medium or high settings.
The straight-up value champion from the list of 15 laptops below? HP’s Pavilion 15t which sports a Quad Core i5-7300HQ 3.5Ghz Kaby Lake 7th-gen processor along with a GTX 1050 for only $689.99 (use code LIBERTY17 for $10 off). It’s very similar spec-wise to the Dell 15 mentioned above, but you’re looking at a non-Ti GPU (slightly lower clock), plus a regular hard disk drive compared to the SSD found in the Dell.
In the pricier and today-only department, all the Alienware machines are at a steeper-than-usual discount, but the deals are fairly limited in terms of time frame. The new Alienware 15 R3 with Core i7-7700HQ and a GTX 1060 is “only” $1,299.99. While pricey, this model comes with a sexy 300-nits IPS panel with G-SYNC enable — a rare feature in a laptop. The deal is today-only, won’t stack with coupons, and is currently 84% claimed as of writing.
*Note: Deals with an asterisk are today-only and will expire after tonight.
