Best Black Friday budget gaming laptops deals from Lenovo, MSI, and HP

Deal starts at $499

If you’re thinking of picking up a new gaming laptop this holiday season, we’ve rounded up some of the more wallet friendly offerings this Black Friday. The best bang-for-your-buck machine in our opinion is an MSI GL65 15-inch gaming laptop at Walmart for only $599. This comes with a mid-range GTX 1650, which is slightly faster than the older GTX 1050 Ti. You’ll be able to run Borderlands 3 at high settings, and Modern Warfare at ultra setting. The best part of this laptop? They’re tossing in a giant 512GB SSD.

The next best candidate if you have a little bit more to burn is the Dell G3 15 at $679 with sports a GTX 1660 Ti Max Q, which is a higher mid-range GPU. It gets you about 15% more frame rates compare to the 1650 listed above in similar settings, and makes VR gaming a lot more viable. This means for $680 you’ll get a head start on a VR-capable gaming laptop if you eventually want to pluck the money over for Half-Life: Alyx.

Finally, for those with a bit more budget, we’ve also listed some under $1,000 laptops below, the noteworthy of the bunch being the MSI GL75 which includes a high-end 144Hz 3ms IPS 1080p display.
