The cheap gaming laptop deals just keep coming this summer, and the latest one from Newegg has got some excellent offerings in it. As part of their summer 'FantasTech Sale' they have cut the prices of laptops across the gaming spectrum, from discounts on gaming behemoths with incredible power to offers on great value prices on budget, entry-level models.
There's a couple of gaming laptop deals going, but we've picked out five that cut across the spectrum and are worthy of your attention.
The best value laptop is probably the HP Omen with an RTX 2060 card, a brand-new 10th generation Intel processor, and 16GB of RAM with a healthy, though not massive, 512GB SSD. It can be yours for a good price of $1,299.99 right now, saving you $150. With ray-tracing laptops not crashing below the four-figure mark just yet, this is a good price for a 2060-centered machine.
The best budget entry is an MSI GF63 model that sports a GTX 1650 graphics card. This lean mean gaming machine is only $699 right now - a solid deal and one that qualifies with good merit to be amongst the top cheap gaming laptops for under $1000 we've seen in recent weeks.
Meanwhile, anybody looking for maximum power in their machine for a good price is going to want to consider the MSI GS75 Stealth laptop. While this beast 'only' has an i7-9750H CPU (the last generation), it has a 2080 graphics card, 32GB of RAM (!), and a 1TB SSD which will have games running beautifully and exquisitely on its IPS-level display. This model can come crashing down to $2,099 after a discount and rebate card. Excellent value.
These will naturally crunch through all work and home tasks with ridiculous ease but they really are primed for serious play. Plus, they are all from the bowels of trusted manufacturers so you'll get good aftercare and a warranty to boot.

If you're looking to take things up a further notch or two then this laptop is a winner. A 2080-powered laptop for this price tag is pretty good and is extremely enhanced by a strong supporting cast in the shape of 32GB of RAM and a large SSD storage arrangement. And at a grand total of just over two thousand dollars after the rebate card, this is a great price.
