$130 Off Acer Aspire 5 Intel Core i5-8250U 15″ 1080p Laptop with 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Now $399

This isn’t a gaming laptop (there’s no discrete video card), but for students looking for an inexpensive but capable laptop to get them through the school year, this is a perfect deal. For less than $400 you’re getting a very capable 8th generation Intel Core i5 processor, a generous 8GB of RAM, and fast solid state storage.

$540 Off Slim Alienware m15 Intel Core i7-8750H 6-Core 15″ 1080p 144Hz IPS Laptop with 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, GeForce GTX 1060, Now $994

Add this laptop to your cart to see the discounted price! The Alienware m15 is the newly designed 15″ laptop for 2019 and weighs only 4.8lbs, which is remarkable given its payload. We reviewed the m15 and highly recommend it. This particular model pairs an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8750H 6-core processor with a very capable GeForce GTX 1060 video card with the full 6GB of VRAM (not the gimped 3GB version). It’s a great matchup especially with the 15″ 1080p 144Hz IPS display.

$430 Off Alienware Area-51m 17″ Laptop with Desktop-Class Intel Core i7-9700 8-Core Processor and RTX 2060 Video Card, Now $1623.59

Use code “LCS10OFF”

We scored this laptop an “Amazing” 9.2/10. The Alienware Area-51m is a true desktop replacement laptop in every sense of the phrase. The Area-51m is the first notebook with a socketed desktop CPU and a swappable GPU. Talk about a future-proof laptop. It’s well designed, exceedingly powerful, and kept up with anything I threw at it in the last 2 weeks.

The CPU in the Area 51m is a desktop-grade component. In this case, you’re getting an Intel Core i7-9700 8-core processor, one of the fastest mainstream processors you can get, even for a desktop PC. The proprietary RTX 2060 video card has been overclocked to the max and Dell claims that it is within 90%-95% of the performance of the desktop variant (which is equivalent to a GTX 1070 Ti video card). You also get 16GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive.

$1100 Off Alienware 17 Intel Core i7-8750H 6-Core 17″ 2560×1440 QHD 120Hz Gaming Laptop with Tobii Eye Tracking, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD, and GeForce GTX 1070, Now $1393.91

Use code “LCS10OFF”

This GeForce GTX 1070-equipped laptop boasts a high-resolution 17″ 2560×1440 QHD 120Hz display and built-in Tobii eye tracking (best implemented in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided). You’ll need the GTX 1070 to run the most games at the maximum 120Hz refresh rate.

$1100 Off Alienware 17 Intel Core i7-8750H 6-Core 17″ 3840×2160 4K IPS Gaming Laptop with Tobii Eye Tracking, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD, and GeForce GTX 1070, Now $1504.79

Use code “LCS10OFF”

This is similar to the deal above, but your screen gets upgraded to a true 4K resolution. You still keep the Tobii eye tracking.

$300 Off ASUS ROG STRIX Intel Core i5-9300H 6-Core 15.6″ 1080p 120Hz IPS Laptop with 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, Now $999

This laptop is completely decked out for under $1000. You get the newest 9th generation 6-core processor, a 1080p IPS display with 120Hz refresh rate, a whopping 512GB of fast SSD storage, and a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti video card that is faster than a GTX 1060.

$200 Off Lenovo Legion Y540 Intel Core i7-9750H 6-Core 17.3″ 1080p IPS Laptop with 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD, and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, Now $1099

This laptop is completely decked out for just over $1K. You get the newest 9th generation 6-core Intel Core i7 processor, a big 17″ 1080p IPS display, plenty of dual storage, and a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti video card that is faster than a GTX 1060.

$250 Off Dell G5 Intel Core i7-9750H 6-Core 15.6″ 1080p IPS Laptop with 16GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 1TB HDD, GeForce RTX 2060, Now $1129

If a 17″ laptop is too big for you, check out this outstanding 15″ laptop deal. The specs are similar, but this laptop is equipped with the RTX 2060 video card, which is slightly faster than even the GTX 1660 Ti and has support for newer technologies like Ray Tracing.

$400 Off Acer Predator Helios 300 Intel Core i7-8750H 6-Core 15″ 1080p IPS Laptop with 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, GTX 1060, Now $899.99

You need to be logged into your Amazon Prime account to see this price. This Acer Predator Helios laptop has killer all-around specs right out of the box and the GTX 1060 video card can run all of your games admirably at 1080p resolution. It also has enough horsepower to drive your Oculus Rift or HTC Vive VR headset.

$400 Off the HP OMEN 15t Intel Core i7-9750H 6-Core 15.6″ 1080p 144Hz IPS RTX 1070 Laptop for $1259.99

The OMEN is HP’s premium line and build quality is superior to anything else you’d find at this price range. The base config is fine, but in my opinion this deal gets so much better if you upgrade to the GeForce RTX 2070.

This ASUS G703GX laptop is a true desktop replacement. What stands out most is that this laptop houses a desktop-grade RTX 2080 video card, NOT the gimped RTX 2080 “Max-Q” mobile card. That means that this laptop has more gaming prowess than a desktop equipped with a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti video card. You’ll be able to push 144Hz on the 1080p display with first person shooters like Fortnite, Apex Legends, Call of Duty, or Battlefield V.

This is an outstanding gaming laptop for under $700. At that price point you won’t find a video card more capable than the GeForce GTX 1650, which is very close in performance to the GTX 1060 (within 10%). The Ryzen 7 R7-3750H processor is a brand new CPU and performs very similarly to the newest 9th generation Intel Core i5 processors. You also get a copious 8GB of RAM and fast 256GB solid state drive.

$150 Off the HP 15 Intel Core i3-7100U 15.6″ Laptop with 4GB RAM and 1TB HDD, Now $259

There is no need to spend money on a powerful laptop if all you plan to use it for is surfing the internet, watching YouTube videos, and maybe a bit of word processing or Paint. This laptop is well south of $300 yet still sports a very capable Intel Core i3 processor (which is considerably more powerful than an Intel Celeron, Pentium Dual-Core, or any mobile processor variant), plenty of RAM and hard drive storage, and the full Windows 10 OS.

These are some crazy specs for a laptop that costs under $1400. Even crazier is the fact that despite all the bells and whistles, the Asus Zephyrus measures only 0.62″ at its thickest point and weighs well under 5lbs.
This page is Dell’s deal hub. Almost every laptop on sale will be found somewhere in this section. This page will also be the main portal for holidays and special events. Bookmark this page when you’re laptop hunting. Some other Dell pages worth bookmarking:
Best Buy’s weekly ad updates every week, on Sunday. Although most of their laptops are non-deals (regular price), some of the laptops on sale can be some of the lowest across the net.
Auctions from eBay’s Daily Deal page work differently from your typical eBay auction. All of these deals are “Buy It Now” only and vendors have been screened and vetted by eBay. Most have tens if not hundreds of thousands of reviews with 98%+ feedback. Some of the laptop deals here are the best you’ll find, ever. Just make sure you read the fine print.
