11 gaming laptops of 2020 at a great price in pre-Black Friday deals
Since today is November 20th, we’re officially just a week away from that Black Friday, one of the most important and anticipated dates in the pre-Christmas shopping environment, as well as a good opportunity to review the above offers hoping to find something at a good price that we would like to acquire in the short term. In this preweek there are many stores that start offers a week before the given day, a kind of preweek that we will cover in our own way. Start by looking at what they are some of the most interesting laptops to play on the PC that we’ve seen discounted.
Laptops on sale in the run-up to Black Friday
The following selection of laptops has been made from the available offers that we could find in virtual stores today, November 20th. All the selected models seem remarkable to us for some reason, which we have more or less briefly described for each article; Due to the fact that we could only select discounted models, our choices were fewer than with a “clean” list, but we still see these models as interesting propositions. We should also point out that, as usual, there are some affiliate links among the articles in this list, but not all articles contain such links as the aim is to give you the best possible preview. We hope to achieve this goal:
- Acer Nitro 5 laptop (AN515-598S) for 639 euros (original price 779 euros). We open this list with a simple model with a price that hasn’t changed particularly during this data; We’re talking about the 2020 Acer Nitro 5 in its most humble version, which packs an i5-10300H as the main processor and an Nvidia GTX 1650 as the graphics section. The good thing about this model is that under 700 euros it offers a team capable of running titles with the appropriate settings on current generation hardware without any problems.
- MSI GP65 Leopard Laptop (10SFK-495XES) for 1,349.99 euros (original price 1,699.99 euros). We continue with a much more powerful model than the previous one in terms of gaming, since this MSI Leopard is powered by a GeForce RTX 2070 as the main graphics of the system, coupled with an Intel i7-10750H; Coupled with elements such as its 16 GB of RAM or its high-resolution FHD screen, this device makes for a fast and powerful gaming system that is now also available on Amazon at a minimum price.
- MSI Bravo 15 laptop for 899 euros (original price 1,019 euros). The biggest advantage of this MSI laptop is that it is one of the few proposals that has full AMD hardware and can use technologies like SmartShift to play on it efficiently. This hardware mainly consists of a Ryzen 7 4800H processor along with a Radeon RX 5500M; The latter makes this model a relatively easy laptop to play with, but with the right settings, it will be able to see our entire library of titles on its FHD screen without much trouble.
- Acer Predator Helios 300 (PH315) for 1,444.92 euros (original price 1,699.90 euros). Acer’s Predator laptops match the Asian brand’s gamer range; As a gaming laptop, the Helios 300 has interesting additions such as increased cooling or OC at the push of a button; However, the main attraction of this model at the current price is that it offers a GeForce RTX 2070 along with an i7-9750H as the processor and a high-resolution display for less than 1,500 euros. As many of you know, its processor is the previous generation of Intel, which would explain the existence of this offer; However, we know that the progression from ninth to tenth generation video games is negligible, so we still see this as an interesting proposition.
- HP Omen 15 (EK0004NS) for 1,399 euros (new price 1,599 euros). One of the models that corresponds to this laptop series was part of our recommended models list for this year 2020, so when we saw this laptop on sale, we wanted to highlight it as well. This is HP’s latest review of its Omen series, with design changes and slight cooling tweaks. In this particular model we find an i7-10750H processor and a GeForce RTX 2070 as the main components, together with a high-refresh panel and ample SSD space on offer under 1,400 euros; a proposal that we consider very valuable.
- Asus Rog Strix G15 (G512LV-HN221) for 1,199 euros (original price 1,499 euros). This Asus Rog series laptop has a 144 Hertz panel in FHD resolution, a GeForce RTX 2060 in charge of the graphics muscle and an Intel i7-10870H processor. With the appropriate adjustments in the titles of our library, together with the hardware mentioned, we can easily use the screen while enjoying the rest of its features. Now it’s under €1,200, a reasonable price for all its hardware in a portable format.
- Lenovo Legion 5 (82B1005CSP) for 1,359.15 euros (original price 1,599 euros). As usual, this week’s offers can not only be found in specialist shops, but also on the websites of the manufacturers themselves. This is the case of Lenovo, which offers its new Legion 5 at a good price, a laptop that, at list price, has an AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor along with a GeForce RTX 2060, but whose main asset is its fantastic body that it features excellent cooling and a robust build, making this model one of the best on this list in its price range.
- MSI GE66 Raider (10SF-296XES) for 1,799 euros (new price 2,299 euros). In our Black Friday week preview we have the presence of the model that is immediately superior to this MSI Raider. This model has a slightly lower price since it packs a GeForce RTX 2070 as its main graphics card, but it still packs the i7-10875H processor, the other model’s 32GB of RAM, its 1TB NVMe SSD, and its 240- Hertz screen for around 200 euros less on offer. If we think the difference isn’t enough to justify your purchase, the model recommended above is still on sale.
- Asus VivoBook 15 (X571LI) for 749 euros (new price 899.99 euros). As the only model outside of the “gaming” tag on our list, the Asus VivoBook is also one of the most basic in design and features on the list; but no less interesting. This ordinary laptop has an i5-10300H as its processor, accompanied by an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, a graphics card that has proven to be more than efficient in light and intense games with configuration adjustments. Being a generic model, it doesn’t have a high refresh rate screen or particularly lively cooling, but it’s a great performing device for its price.
- HP Pavilion Gaming 16 for 1,099.99 euros (original price 1,399.99 euros). With this HP model we are repeating one of the offers from our Black Friday preview. In our eyes, with the components it contains, it seems to be one of the most interesting proposals of today’s sales in gross value, since it packs a GeForce RTX 2060, an i7-10750H processor, 16GB of RAM and a high soda screen , for just over 1,000 euros.
- Asus Rog Zephyrus G14 (GA401IV-HE003) for 1,499 euros (new price 1,589 euros). The Rog Zephyrus G14 is one of our favorite laptops this year; Despite the low availability, Asus is one of the few manufacturers, along with the new Lenovo Legion, to release models with mid-range and high-end features that use the new Ryzen processors for laptops. This one in particular uses the Ryzen 4800HS together with an RTX 2060, has an excellent construction both in terms of finishes and features, and is available and on sale, which is difficult to say about these models.
