We're crawling closer to a flood of Black Friday gaming laptop deals this year, and it's going to be a doozy. Once the big day rolls around on November 25, you can expect gaming laptops of all power-levels to come tumbling onto our radar. For now, we've sent our price detecting bots off to find some early Black Friday gaming laptop deals, and have scraped the Early Access barrel for left over deals, but we'll be populating the hubs with flashy discounts as they appear.

Black Friday gaming laptop deals are going to be everywhere over the 2022 deal season. We should see last year's stock being flushed out ready for portable versions of Nvidia's 40-series graphics cards set to hit us next year. While we wait for Nvidia to figure out how to slim down those monsters, you can bet you'll be able to find RTX 3060-powered gaming laptops on sale, all the way up to RTX 3080 machines if we're lucky.

When it comes to AMD gaming laptop deals, they've always been less common. And although we are expecting announcements for RDNA 3 GPUs this month, portable versions won't be around for a while yet. In other words, cheap AMD-powered gaming laptops will be fewer than Nvidia-powered ones. But keep an eye out for the odd all AMD gem.

For the best possible gaming laptop deals this Black Friday, we wholeheartedly recommend going for a more recent GPU—something in Nvidia's RTX 30-series or equivalent, ideally. There will be retailers still trying to flog you an RTX 20-series laptop for over $1,000 no doubt, but don't be fooled. You can easily find a low-end 30-series lappys for less than that, so double check before you get your wallet out for an older card. A 12th Gen Intel CPU or equivalent is your best bet to stay as current as possible. And you'll want to watch out for single channel RAM configurations, which can impede performance (1x 8GB especially is a no-no).

What should I look out for in a Black Friday gaming laptop deal?

The best Black Friday gaming laptop deals will deliver high-performance hardware for a knockdown price, or at the very least not come with an overly inflated price tag. 

But it doesn't automatically scan that just because something has a three-figure discount that it will be worth the money. You need to keep an eye on what parts are being used, what else you get for your cash, and whether it's actually right for you.

Things are tough for PC gaming hardware, as it stands today. But companies are still aiming to shift stock so expect some discounts on current-gen kit. Don't be fooled into parting with money for anything beyond the last generation of GPUs, however. It's unlikely there'll be a laptop with an Nvidia 10-series graphics card inside it that's worth buying this Black Friday, unless you can find a wonderfully cheap deal.

Keep an eye out for storage, and memory size too. That's most true at the low end of the market, where manufacturers may aim to keep prices low by using single sticks of memory and therefore halving the potential memory bandwidth. That might not be a problem in the very cheapest of gaming laptops, however, where the GPU will make the most difference to your experience.
