The Black Friday gaming laptop deals might still be over a week away, but that hasn't stopped Best Buy from putting out some of the deepest savings we've seen all year, as you can currently save up to $650 on some of the best gaming laptops around right now. If you've been after an RTX 30 series machine for less, now could be the perfect time to pick one up and beat the upcoming sales madness. 

The largest discount in the sale has been reserved for the Gigabyte 4K OLED Creator which is selling for just $1,249.99 (reduced from $1,900) (opens in new tab). You're getting some truly top-of-the-line specs with this deal, too. If you're after some futureproofed and ideal for work and play then the aggressive price here is not to be missed. 

While it's not uncommon for RTX 3060 laptop deals to sell for around the $1,250 mark, we very rarely see 4K displays and 1TB NVMe SSDs in machines for this price range, so if you're interested in really pushing that GPU to its limits, as well as getting a stellar panel, period, this is one of the better times to do so.

On the cheaper end of things, however, the Gigabyte G5 (complete with an RTX 3050 and 16GB RAM) is retailing right now for just $849.99 (down from $1,150) (opens in new tab). It offers exceptional value for money where RTX 3050 laptop deals are concerned, given you're getting not only a 512GB SSD but also double the memory that we normally see in entry-level gaming laptops for around $800 - $900. 

Another highlight is the Asus Tuf Gaming laptop, which despite running 8GB RAM, features the upgraded RTX 3050 Ti and a 512GB SSD, too, for only $799.99 (down from $1,000) (opens in new tab). That makes it one of the more aggressively priced machines we've come across in some time.
