Deals season is kicking off and the Prime Day gaming laptop deals are already going strong.
The big day doesn’t kick off until tomorrow, but there are already Amazon Prime Day gaming laptop deals to be had. But, shhh, right now they’re not all actually on Amazon itself. You can check out our current selection of Amazon Prime Day deals from the early offers on assorted goodies, but we’ve also seen some pretty impressive gaming laptop deals too.
You might be concerned that the new Nvidia RTX 3080 launch would instantly render the RTX 20-series obsolete, and while that’s almost true from a desktop GPU point of view, on the gaming laptop side it’s not so cut and dried. With the Nvidia RTX 20-series Super cards only launching this year I wouldn’t expect RTX 30-series mobile GPUs until well into 2021.
Yet there are certain to be discounted gaming laptops as last-gen processors from Intel get phased out ahead of the upcoming 11th Gen Intel Tiger Lake launch, and Rocket Lake next year.
We’ve also added a bunch of non-gaming laptops to the pile too. Because sometimes you just want a svelte little notebook to take on the road, while your hulking great desktop monster takes care of gaming at home.
The Stealth 13 is a true gaming ultrabook, packing in an Ice Lake mobile CPU and a discrete GTX 1650 TI GPU, into a svelte 13.3-inch package. You also get 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD.View Deal
This is a great price for one of the best gaming laptops around. The chassis is slim, the RTX 2070 GPU is powerful, and the 15.6-inch display runs at 240Hz.View Deal

Okay, this is PC Gamer, and I’m recommending a Mac. One that cannot really game. But if you want to do some of that there creative stuff, with $300 off, the six-core MacBook Pro and AMD 5300M GPU will see you right.View Deal
Dave has been obsessed with gaming since the days of Zaxxon on the Colecovision, and code books for the Commodore Vic 20 (Death Race 2000!). He built his first gaming PC at the tender age of 16, and finally finished bug-fixing the Cyrix-based system around a year later. When he dropped it out of the window. Thankfully it’s a lot easier to build a gaming rig now there are no motherboard jumper switches, though he has been breaking technology ever since… at least he gets paid for it now.
