Black Friday Gaming PC Deals and Gaming Laptop Deals – What to expect and deals live now

Black Friday Gaming Laptop Deals and Gaming PC Deals: If you’re looking to make a killing on a gaming rig or laptop this Black Friday, our handy list of deals has got you covered. 

Say what you will about console gaming, there’s nothing quite like having a high-end gaming PC or laptop that can really push a game to its limits – and that’s coming from someone who’s happy to game on all platforms.

Case in point, playing Far Cry 5 in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second is an experience like no other – Montana never looked so good (outside of real life, of course).

The obvious downside to playing games this way is the general price of entry. When it comes to shelling out for a serious gaming rig, it’s not out of the ordinary for you to pay double, or even triple the price of a PS4 or Xbox One.

Once you have a gaming laptop/ or PC however, you’ll often find that the games themselves tend to be cheaper on the platform. Online retailers such as Steam, Green Man Gaming and GoG frequently hold sales events where games can usually be had at a cheaper price than their console counterparts, saving you money in the long run as well as often offering the best graphics fidelity.

While a gaming PC or laptop is of course great for games, they’re also worth considering for anyone who needs pure processing grunt power, too. You often find gaming PCs and laptops, with their discrete graphics and often beefy processors, apply themselves well to intensive tasks like video editing or CAD, too. If you don’t fancy picking up a dedicated workstation, then a powerful gaming PC can also do the trick for a lot of tasks.

That said, your initial investment will still make a sizeable dent in your wallet, so whether you’re thinking about buying a gaming PC, building one from scratch, or you’d rather pick up a purpose-built gaming laptop that’s ready to go out of the box, then Black Friday 2018 is your best bet.

The likes of Dell (and therefore Alienware), HP and Lenovo have historically made some tasty discounts for Black Friday in years gone by, making it an opportune time to pick up a new gaming laptop. But aside from the manufacturers directly, the likes of Currys PC World, John Lewis and Amazon have also been known to discount gaming laptops and PCs from the likes of Asus, Acer, Razer and more.

While this article focuses explicitly on gaming systems, we also have a Black Friday Laptop Deals page where you can get a heads up on what to expect from this year’s Black Friday, as well as bag some bargains right this moment.
