The best gaming laptop deals this Black Friday

1. Acer Aspire 7: 15.6in, Core i5, GTX 1050, 1TB HDD (was £715, now £599)

This Acer laptop has dropped in price, making it a must-buy for those of us who are on a budget. It features a Full HD 60Hz display, has a GTX 1050 inside, 8GB of RAM, an Intel Core i5-7300HQ and a 1TB HDD drive to store all your favourite games. Grab it before prices go back up.

Alternatively, it's worth considering the Asus TUF FX504GD, which has near-identical specs, but has a newer (and slightly faster) Core i5-8300H processor, instead. The newer generation chip costs a cool £100 more, bringing the laptop's price to £700, down from £800.

4. HP Omen: 15.6in, Core i5, GTX 1060, 1TB HDD (was £949, now £899)

While not quite as big of a saving as other gaming laptops on this list, the HP Omen still offers stonkingly good value for money. A GTX 1060 graphics chip is perfect for the latest games, and its buttery-smooth 144Hz screen allows for high frame rate gaming, too.

5. Acer Predator Helios 300: 15.6in, Core i5, GTX 1060, 1TB HDD (was £1,299, now £1,199)

Top of our list is the Acer Predator Helios 300. Falling under Acer’s well-established Predator brand, the Helios 300 – despite the silly name – not only looks rather swish but is a feature-packed gaming laptop with a massive Full HD, 144Hz screen, Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics and Intel’s new high clock-speed eighth-gen chip.
