You’re not just looking for a workhorse. You want a laptop that has gaming. Maybe that means frame rates, maybe even a high refresh rate screen for improved responsiveness in less demanding games. But most of all you want bang for the buck. So shop right now, during Black Friday week, when some of the best deals (and a bunch of predatory fakes) are popping up.
These are the deals that caught my eye – the ones I might consider myself or recommend to a friend, depending on my needs and budget. Let’s start with the cheapest and go from there!
Update November 23: Added several more deals.
