RTX 3060 laptop deals are much cheaper than they used to be - we regularly see these rigs coming in under $1,000 / £1,000 these days. Those kinds of prices were impossible to find outside of major sales this time last year, so we're celebrating these rapidly falling costs with a collection of the best value discounts from all around the web. 

There's some excellent value up for grabs right now, especially considering machines are stacking 16GB RAM into their cheaper offers as well (we usually only see 8GB at the bottom end of the price scale). 

These GPUs are found in some of the best gaming laptops on the market, but can sit in a sweet spot between value and price if you're sticking to a budget. If you're looking to spend between $900 and $1,500 (£900 and £1,500) on RTX 3060 laptop deals, this is the configuration you should be looking at and, paired with Ryzen's 5000 series or Intel's 11th generation processors, these machines are capable of some serious power. 

While it's rare to find gaming laptop deals with an RTX 3060 GPU for under $1,000 / £1,000, it can be done if you're browsing at the right time. We're rounding up all the best RTX 3060 laptop deals this week right here, with our top picks from retailers known to regularly discount current-generation models - and, remember: keep a close eye on the upcoming Prime Day laptop deals too for more sales and offers.

Why buy an RTX 3060 laptop

As far as the best gaming PCs are concerned, you need something that's both versatile and fast but that's also well equipped for any game you throw at it. However, prices on top of the range rigs can certainly shoot through the roof, which is why it's important to balance that performance with your wallet. 

An RTX 3060 laptop with enough RAM and a decent processor shouldn't cost you more than $1,500 / £1,500, especially when on sale. That makes it perfect for anyone looking for a taste of today's tech without splashing out on features they won't necessarily make the most of. However, if your budget is set at $1,000 you'll find an RTX 3050 laptop much easier. 

That may be the case if you're looking for an RTX 3080 laptop or an RTX 3070 laptop. These machines rarely drop below $1,500 / £1,500 but the performance boost on offer may not even be necessary, especially if you're not playing demanding games. 

RTX 3060 gaming laptops do feature one of the best graphics cards that you can buy at the moment. However, actually getting your hands on that GPU by itself has been proving difficult for years. Laptops, on the other hand, have been packing these RTX 3060 cards for a while now/ If you are looking to pick up a desktop model, though, we're showing you where to buy RTX 3060 right here.

Which RTX 3060 laptops are available

There's plenty of choice out there, whether you're after a budget RTX 3060 laptop or something a little more premium. The best Razer laptops and the best Alienware laptops all come with RTX 3060 configurations, as these graphics cards often form the entry level options of luxury, high-end rigs. 

At the cheaper end you'll find the Asus TUF Dash F15, Dell G15, and Acer Nitro 5 will often offer up the lowest prices. However, if you're aiming for a more powerful processor and more chance of scoring 16GB RAM, you should also check out the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14, MSI Stealth 15M, and Alienware M15 R5/6. At the top end of the scale, you'll find the Alienware X15 and X17, and the Razer Blade 14. 

Is an RTX 3060 GPU good in a laptop?

An RTX 3060 GPU is perfect for a mid-range laptop that can outperform entry level options but doesn't need to match the lofty prices of high-end machines. The unit itself offers up 6GB of DGGR6 memory with a 192 bit bus, with a performance generally similar to the RTX 2070 Super mobile GPU. 

That means it will offer up solid performance in both 1080p and 1440p gaming, though newer, flashier titles may not run at their best on ultra settings, depending on the processor and RAM you're pairing them with. 

If you're after a desktop PC, we're also rounding up all the best RTX 3060 gaming PC deals, or if you're already settled on a brand, check out the latest cheap Razer laptop deals and cheap Alienware laptops on the market.
