If you're on the look out for a cheap gaming machine, you should definitely consider this smashing deal: an Acer Nitro 5 laptop for gaming that's down to $629.99 over at BestBuy. This is an impulse purchase-worthy price for a competent and capable machine, that will also offer portability. It's a fine addition to your setup if you're looking for a portable companion to your 'main' machine and is well serviced by an i5-8300H processor, an Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti graphics card, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. It will keep up with almost all modern games, though perhaps not at maximum settings, and give you an incredible enjoyable, and mobile, PC/laptop gaming experience.

If you've been considering a leap into PC gaming and want to dip your toe in first, then this represents one of the best options we've seen in a while.

I'm one of the Hardware Editors for GamesRadar+, and have been for nearly three years; I've also been a writer on games - freelancing and the like - for four or so years for the likes of Eurogamer, RPS, PCGN, and more. Day to day, I take care of a whole host of gaming tech reviews, buying guides, and news and deals content that pops up across GamesRadar+. I'm also a qualified landscape and garden designer so do that in my spare time, and use it to write about games' landscapes and environments too, including an upcoming book on the topic!
