Best Buy has always been one of my favorite retailers for excellent laptop deals. And the electronics specialist is particularly strong when it comes to big discounts on powerful gaming laptops. Case in point, Best Buy is currently offering a selection of desirable machines at significantly reduced prices. 

We’re not talking about saving money on underpowered machines either, some seriously powerful laptops are currently on sale over at Best Buy. Our favorite deals include as much as $700 off the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14, which continues to top our ranking of the best gaming laptops you can buy. And even if all the options below aren’t the very latest models on the market, they still have enough power to run some of the best PC games at high settings. 

If you’re looking to take your first steps into the world of PC gaming, or are a desktop veteran looking for a portable device to take your library on the move, here are six gaming laptop deals at Best Buy that I think are worth considering.

This Dell G15 Gaming Laptop packs a AMD Ryzen 5 6600H CPU, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 GPU, 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. It also features a 15.6-inch FHD display with 120Hz refresh rate. Be aware, this is definitely a budget pick, and it's far from cutting edge. Don't expect to play the latest games at the highest setting, but it's a worthwhile pick if you want to play less demanding games and spend as little as possible.
