There’s a lot I don’t know, but two things I’m an expert on are gaming laptops and saving money, so you can trust me when I say these are the four best Prime Day gaming laptop deals on offer right now, and I heartily recommend all of them. They cover a range of different price points/budgets and use-cases, so there should be something here to cater to everyone’s needs. I’ve provided a little bit of info below each one of them below to help you pick the right one for you.

First up is the Acer Predator Helios 16, which I reviewed and benchmarked with these exact specifications earlier this year, and gave it a score of 4.5/5. In short, this is an affordable gaming laptop with power, features, and performance greater than what you’d typically expect at its price point, and that’s when it’s full price, never mind with a juicy $350 discount. The RTX 4060 graphics card and Intel Core i7-13700HX combo are capable of churning out impressive performance on the latest AAA games, even on the highest settings, it comes with Advanced Optimus, G-Sync, a nice bright 500 nits, high resolution 1600p display, and even has an impressive 7-hour battery duration on battery saver mode – far better than most gaming laptops. If that’s not enough to convince you, I’ll probably be buying one of these badboys myself over this sales period.

Legion Pros are a well-respected sub-brand of the Lenovo gaming laptop range, and regularly make it into peoples’ best gaming laptop of the year list. This particular Legion Pro 5 comes with a powerful combination of the Nvidia RTX 4070 graphics card with the latest AMD Ryzen 7 7745HX CPU, plus a huge amount of memory and storage to boot, specifically 32GB DDR5 RAM and 2TB of SSD storage – an absolute steal for $250 off in this Prime Day deal.

Best Prime Day RTX 4080 laptop deal

The RTX 4080 laptop graphics card is one of the best high-end laptop GPUs we’ve seen in performance/price terms, and this ROG Strix SCAR 17 is one of the best gaming laptops around that comes equipped with it. Not only that, but it comes equipped with the Ryzen 9 7945HX, which is very nearly the most powerful laptop CPU on the market right now – it certainly beats out any of the Intel competition. With an immersive, vibrant, 17-inch display with 240Hz refresh rate plus 32GB of DDR5 RAM and 1TB of storage, this is one of the best high-end gaming laptops around, now available for a pretty reasonable price.

Our final selection is one of the much coveted Alienware gaming laptop range. For most gamers, we’d recommend picking the alternative RTX 4080 laptop above instead of this one, as it comes with a higher resolution display. If however, your priority is squeezing out the maximum FPS from your games to give you that competitive edge in fast-paced online shooters, then the 480Hz refresh rate on the display of this device is the fastest currently available on any laptop – it’s frankly ridiculous if we’re honest. For $610 off this is a great buy.

Laptop specialist Aaron’s insight: Any one of these devices would make the ideal gift for yourself or others this Prime Day. These are all top class gaming laptops, among the best of their respected niches, so I can’t recommend them enough at these sorts of prices.
