While you’ll usually find the best performance in PC gaming on an actual desktop PC, gaming laptops can still provide a worthy experience that’s also portable, and waiting until Black Friday to scoop up a new gaming laptop can easily save you hundreds of dollars to boot. Below, we’ve provided all the relevant information you need to get a solid gaming laptop at a great price during Black Friday 2017.

What To Look For When Buying A Gaming PC

When it comes to picking out a solid gaming laptop, a Windows PC tends to be the go-to option. Even if you’re usually more used to Macs, the good news is that the specs you want to look out for are actually pretty straightforward.

For running games on a laptop, RAM and graphics capabilities are key, so if you want to play the latest games, you should be shooting for at least 16GB of RAM and the newest graphics parts you can find (the GeForce GTX 1060 is a popular choice).

The Best Gaming Laptop Deals From Black Friday 2016

Last year, several different retailers offered some pretty great deals on gaming laptops, all of which we have compiled below. Now, there’s no guarantees that the below deals will make an encore appearance, but at the very least the below deals should be indicative of what to expect for Black Friday 2017.

The Best MacBook Pro Deals From Black Friday 2016

If you’re a Mac user who absolutely refuses to give up the Apple lifestyle, a modern MacBook Pro can also serve as a decent gaming laptop, especially if you have the technical know-how to install a Windows 10 partition via Bootcamp. The MacBook Pro doesn’t tend to get a whole lot of discounts, but the below deals from last year prove that you can at least shave a little off the price tag if you can wait until Black Friday.
