Prime Day Acer Helios 300
Don't miss out on these amazing deals for gaming laptops, as Prime Day is probably the best time to go out and buy one for yourself. Amazon

One of Amazon’s biggest sales of the year is once again upon us, bringing with it deals like no other for thousands of different choices for every kind of gamer there is. Prime Day 2019 will be available from today, July 15, until tomorrow, which is the prime time to take a gander at what you’re missing in your different game collections, be it titles, accessories, and other peripherals.

For this piece, we’ll be taking a look at some of the best deals available now on great gaming laptops, courtesy of the best laptop manufacturers around. A gaming laptop is always one of the best compromises if you’re ever in the market for PC gaming, but in a smaller, and somewhat portable form factor. Of course, they’re understandably pricier especially given the hardware inside, and that’s why it’s always important to get gaming laptops while they’re hot on sale, and there’s no better time than Amazon’s Prime Day.

Without further ado, here are some of the best gaming laptops on hefty sales for 2019’s Prime Day.

Acer Predator Helios 300

When someone points out that you cannot possibly get a great PC gaming experience for a mere fraction of the cost, I always point towards Acer and its lineup of decent-priced gaming laptops that offer quite the performance. What’s even better is that one of their most popular offerings, the Predator Helios 300, is crossing that thousand-buck threshold while offering a feature set that will put most other gaming laptops to shame.

Why you should get it – Well, if the price alone isn’t worth it for you, consider that the Helios 300 boasts a 15.6-inch, 144 Hz IPS LED-backlit panel, which at this price range is absolutely insane. You also get quite the punch with an eighth Gen Intel Core i7-8750H 6-Core Processor which can absolutely moonlight as a productivity machine, given the extra cores on top of the 4.1 GHz boost clock. The whole beast is powered by the mid-range Nvidia stunner, the GeForce GTX 1060, with 6 GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM. On top of all of these, you also get some decent RAM with a 16GB DDR4 2666MHz kit, as well as fast storage with the included 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD.

MSI GV62

MSI continues to show its dominance in the gaming laptop scene with its yearly offerings that boast very decent price-to-performance ratio, and if you need any proof of that then look no further than the GV62, which, even without the sale, manages to sell itself and its feature-rich existence for just under a thousand bucks. This is one of the best entry-level gaming laptops out there, and should be on just about every list if you ever wanted PC gaming on the go without breaking your wallet too much.

Why you should get it – For the price on sale, the MSI GV62 is an absolute steal, which is saying something considering that it’s one of the biggest sellers even when it’s not on sale. The GV62 does compromise a bit, featuring a 15.6 Full HD “IPS-like” display running at 60 Hz. It is, however, powered by the same chip as the Predator Helios 300, the i7-8750H 6-Core Processor, which makes it amazing steal at this price. In the GPU department, you can do some entry-level stuff fairly well with the included GeForce GTX1050TI with 4GB of VRAM, which is also perfect for the screen. The GV62 also boasts 16GB of DDR4 RAM running at 2400 MHz, plus two storage drives – a 128GB NVMe SSD for your OS, and a 1 TB hard drive for your library of games.

Razer Blade 15

Going over a thousand bucks for a gaming laptop feels like a pretty big investment, but for the most part it’s worth it, especially if you’re looking at the Razer Blade 15. With Prime Day slashing off five hundred dollars off its retail price, the Blade 15 is in a very competitive spot that sees it providing incredible build quality, amazing visuals, powerful processors and all the premium bells and whistles you’ve grown to expect from the Razer brand. Performance-wise, the Razer Blade 15 is unbeatable at this price point, so consider this if you’re thinking of going over $1000.

Why you should get it – It’s an absolute no-brainer at this lower price point, considering everything you get along with it. The Blade 15 has the same-sized screen sitting at 15.6 inches, but it’s also a lot smaller in overall profile thanks to its incredibly smaller bezels. Like the two previous entries, it also comes with a six-core i7-8750H, which is more than enough for the latest titles to shine through. The graphics department is a bit more impressive, though, as the Blade 15 gets a GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q, which is specifically built for thinner laptops without any significant decrease in performance. The Blade 15 also comes with a 16GB DDR4 2667 MHz memory kit, a 128 GB SSD and a 1 TB hard drive for your digital library.

This next entry sets the bar pretty high for the lowest-priced 1080p 60 fps gaming machine, as Asus partners with AMD to bring its brand of amazing price to performance ratio in a laptop format. Even before the Prime Day sale, this laptop is pushing the limit of what you can do with quite the limited budget, while still getting a fairly decent experience with a portable machine. It’s a match made in heaven, as the TUF lineup is always seen as a somewhat mid-ranged offering compared to its big brother, the ROG, which is all about the premium – however, that mid-range hits quite the sweet spot, especially for players who are into less demanding titles on the PC.

Why you should get it – Fans of AMD’s hardware offerings will find a lot of things to love with the Asus TUF FX505, as the whole thing is powered by both a Ryzen CPU and a Radeon GPU. You get an incredibly competitive performance with the Ryzen 5 3350H, AMD’s mobile platform with a boost clock of 3.7 GHz with onboard Radeon Vega 8 graphics. You also get dedicated graphics performance also powered by AMD, as the TUF FX505 comes in with a Radeon RX 560x sporting 4GB of VRAM, which is incredibly sufficient for less demanding titles on the platform. For such a low price, you also get an amazing screen with very thin bezels, as the TUF FX505 comes with a 15.6-inch IPS-level FHD display. There is a bit of compromise with the RAM, though, as you only get 8 GB of DDR4, along with just one storage drive in the 256GB NVMe M.2 SSD.

As competitive as the TUF FX505 may be in terms of pricing, you can get an overall better performance with its Intel- and Nvidia-powered brother if you can raise your budget by a little over a hundred dollars. The TUF FX504 sits in a good place among other contenders, as it does offer decent value as both a gaming machine and a productivity-centered one, thanks to Intel providing it with a great mobile processor. There are, however, some trade-offs, but for people already within the price range, the TUF FX504 has made its mark.

Why you should get it – It’s a bit better in terms of performance over the TUF FX505, although it has some features missing from it, too. For instance, the TUF FX504 has thicker bezels, meaning you get a smaller screen size. It’s still the same panel, though, a 15.6-inch stunner running at 60 Hz. The real winner comes under the hood, as the TUF FX504 rocks a six-core Intel i7-8750H, compared to the four-core Ryzen one in the TUF FX505. The graphics department is no slouch either, as the TUF FX504 comes with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB of VRAM. The differences end there, as the TUF FX504 also has an 8GB RAM kit running at 2666MHz and a 256GB M.2 SSD for basic storage.
