This Week’s Gaming Laptop Deals Just Dropped!

Hello deal hunters!

The best gaming laptop deals of the week are here:

This Week’s Best Deals

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 7640HS


RAM: 16GB DDR5-5600

Display: 16” 1920 × 1200 144Hz

SSD: 512GB

$849.99 at Best Buy
Save $500 (37%)
Was $1349.99

Comments: This isn’t the first time this deal has come around, but it’s still a good one for the price.

Full disclosure, the screen isn’t ideal as it has a lower 45% NTSC color gamut. In other words the colors look a bit dull compared to more expensive laptops, but that’s the compromise.

If you don’t mind that and just want great bang for buck performance, then $850 for a Zen 4 processor + RTX 4060 with decent build quality is hard to beat.

Of course the screen wouldn’t be an issue for those that plan to dock the laptop and connect a monitor 😀

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 7535HS



Display: 15.6” 1920 × 1080 144Hz

SSD: 512GB

$699.99 at Best Buy
Save $250 (26%)
Was $949.99

Comments: This is the cheapest RTX 4050 gaming laptop that we’ve listed for a while. Despite that, it still comes with 16 gigs of RAM rather than 8.

Yeah, like most of the cheapest options the screen color might not be optimal. They don’t actually specify it, so I’d assume it’s not impressive.

But most other laptops this price tend to have older graphics from last gen, like RTX 2050 or 3050. Compared to those, the 4050 here is good value, while the chassis is better quality compared to others like MSI’s GF63 for a similar price.

CPU: Intel Core i9-13900HX


RAM: 32GB DDR5-5600

Display: 16” 2560 × 1600 240Hz


$1999.99 at B&H
Save $750 (27%)
Was $2749.99

Comments: We’ve had this laptop listed on the site for months now, but they made it an even better deal by lowering it another $50 a few days ago.

B&H recently added the 14th gen Legion laptops at a higher price. We get the impression that they’re trying to clear older stock, as they stopped listing some configurations once they sold out.

From our testing, RTX 4080 laptop graphics offer a huge 55% FPS boost compared to the RTX 4070 at 1440p. The 4080 can really be worth it for a few hundred dollars more compared to a 4070 if you want to take things to the next level.

These are some nice deals – but sales change over time. Our website is updated multiple times a day, so check it out regularly to save money 🤑

Video of the Week

In this week’s laptop review we covered Gigabyte’s G6X – their “budget” gaming laptop option.

At least, it’s meant to be. Unfortunately there are too many negatives with this laptop for its current price, so definitely check this out if you’ve been considering it 👇

Tip of the Week

Which CPU brand should you get in your new gaming laptop – Intel or AMD?

This generation, performance is surprisingly a bit of a tie. Intel might do better in some workloads, while AMD might be ahead in others. But once you average a bunch of different tasks or games, the difference is fairly negligible.

Intel typically has the edge when it comes to single core performance, and they have options with more cores and threads. Intel usually ends up being less power efficient, as their chips need higher power levels to reach those higher levels of performance.

This may be why, generally speaking, AMD based gaming laptops last longer on battery power. That isn’t always the case, and Intel’s Meteor Lake processors have started to change this. We have 240+ laptop battery tests published here, and there’s a clear trend of AMD Ryzen laptops coming out on top.

For now, AMD based gaming laptops tend to have better integrated graphics performance. This won’t be important to most gamers as you’ll be using the more powerful discrete graphics, but some people like to run less demanding games on battery with the iGPU.

Ultimately you can’t really go wrong with AMD or Intel laptop processors at the moment. The difference has been much bigger in the past, but not in 2023-2024.

Source: I compared AMD’s Ryzen 7 7840HS against Intel’s Core i7-13700H. Technically these aren’t the newest processors anymore, but Ryzen 8X4X processors and Intel 14th gen are essentially the same as last gen.
