Whether you’re hoping to gift a capable gaming laptop to a loved one for the holidays or you just want to get one for yourself, Amazon has some great deals today. Of this batch of sales, the one that sticks out the most is the model equipped with the Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics chip that dips just below the $1,000 mark.

If you want to check that one out, it’s the $979.99 Asus TUF (15.6-inch IPS FHD display, quad-core AMD Ryzen 7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of PCIe SSD storage, and, of course, the RTX 2060). Unlike the others in this post, this machine lacks a fast refreshing display. So while it’s powerful, you won’t see above 60 frames per second displayed on-screen.

Acer’s Predator Helios 300 gaming laptop is mostly the same in terms of specs to the model above, differing slightly with some design tweaks. It’s $1,299.99, and that bump up in price gets you an Intel Core i7-9750H processor and a 144Hz refresh rate display, which provides a smoother experience when gaming. Today’s sale makes this particular model more affordable than the version with a lesser GTX 1660 Ti graphics chip.

For a souped-up model, Asus’ ROG Zephyrus S gaming laptop (15.6-inch IPS FHD display with 144Hz refresh rate, Intel’s Core i7-9750H CPU, and Nvidia’s RTX 2070, all other specs are similar to the model above) is $1,499, $500 off of its usual price. This one features a keyboard at the front of the chassis, which is an ergonomic whiff if you ever try to use it on your lap. But this is still a good deal if you want a lot of power for the money.

Finally, if you have more money to burn, Razer’s Blade Pro 17 (17.3-inch FHD display with 144Hz refresh rate, 16GB of RAM, Thunderbolt 3 ports, 512GB of solid-state storage, and Nvidia’s RTX 2070) is $2,099. It usually costs $2,800, so that’s quite a steep price drop. We reviewed the option with a 4K 120Hz display (pictured above) with much better specs, but you can check out the photos within to see what to expect with the discounted machine’s design.
