$350 off this RTX 3060 Ryzen Alienware gaming laptop deal makes me regret pulling the trigger in spring

Dell is calling this Alienware laptop deal - and others - 'Black Friday in July', and some of these price drops would certainly live up to that reputation. If you've been waiting for the right time to pick up an RTX 3060 laptop at a great price, now could be the best time with a massive amount of money off Ryzen and Intel-powered computers featuring those ever-elusive graphics cards.

There's little debate about just how powerful an RTX 3060 PC is and - for its price point - that's why it has become the entry-level jewel in the crown of many would-be PC builders in recent months. The RTX 3060 price point, combined with its 6GB VRAM, means it can hold its own against the once-top dog of GPUs - the RTX 2080 at a fraction of the cost. Bag yourself what has every chance to be one of the best gaming laptops for the money below. 

What this means for portable gaming is that you'll be getting a ray-tracing ready system that - while operating at 1080p/Full HD with high refresh rates (120Hz or above) - will be able to be hooked up to an external monitor to take things onto a bigger screen with enough grunt to play games in 4K. 

If you like the look of either laptop, you'll have to act fast as stock for similar spec models is continuing to fly off the proverbial shelves even as you read this. For the money, we've scarcely seen an offer as strong as it is.
