If you've wanted to get into high-end PC hardware, but the price of new machines has put you off, fear not because Best Buy is currently running some stellar gaming laptop deals on some of the biggest brands in the industry; Asus and MSI.

The biggest question that you need to ask yourself revolves around what you're willing to spend and what you want your fancy new computer to do. For some, it may be all about 4K portable power, others may choose to save a few bucks and game in Full HD on an equally capable machine.

The important thing to note is what lies beneath the shiny exterior. At the heart of both units lies an Intel i7 processor, complete with a very respectable RTX 2060 and 16GB RAM; the standard for intensive gaming sessions and creative use. 

If neither deal seems to satisfy, fret not because we have a whole host of early Prime Day laptop deals, accommodating a wide range of budgets and feature sets, to make the decision as straightforward as possible.

Save $350: If you're less concerned about 4K, there are deeper savings to be made with the equally powerful Stealth 15M, featuring the buffer Max-Q version of the RTX 2060, which means that the card runs a little quieter while boosting slightly better results on the whole. Should you want to hook this laptop up to an external monitor - a feat made easy by the included full-size HDMI port on the side, then the bigger discount might be more attractive to you. Features: Intel Core i7-1185G7, RTX 2060 Max-Q, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, 15.6-inch Full HD screen.
