The retail sales event is still several weeks away, but there's already a whole slew of sales that you can shop right now. And these discounts include some of the best gaming laptops you can buy.
My favorite picks right now focus on RTX 40-series models. Sure, there are some good savings on older gaming laptops, including this RTX 3070 system for just over a grand. But with some huge discounts like £800 off MSI’s beastly RTX 4090-armed GE78 HX, why bother with the old when the new is offering shockingly good value for money?
