Black Friday Gaming Laptop Sales
There are good laptops and then there are good gaming laptops. There is a big difference. If you want to get a laptop to browse the web and read Twitter, don’t worry too much about what’s inside your laptop, but if you want to play games you’re going to want a decent processor, lots of RAM and good dedicated graphics. Expect some good deals on laptops packing superb Geforce 1060s over Black Friday, which will play games very well indeed.
Bear in mind that if you buy a gaming laptop with a high res display (1440p or 4K) you’ll need the GPU in the laptop to be up to the task. This will push the price up for gaming laptops, as you really need a 1070 or 1080 to run a display with a resolution that high.

Is Black Friday the Right Time to buy a Gaming Laptop?
The quick answer is yes and no! While there are loads of deals for ‘gaming laptops’ over Black Friday, you just need to be careful that the machine is up to the job of playing new games. Like we said, you need at least a GTX 1050 in your laptop to run games well, and ideally a 1060 or higher. Of course, you can crank the settings down to get better performance, but if you’re spending close to $1000 you’ll expect great things. If portability isn’t really an issue, you could opt for a desktop system, which will give you far greater gaming performance for a much cheaper price.
