If you're searching for a cheap laptop deal, then this offering from Dell might be for you. Using the code 'DG715485AFF' you can get one of their G7 gaming laptops for $799.99 - that's a saving of a massive $485! The laptop has a solid, considered composition but not a brand-new build: an i7-8750H processor, a GTX 1060 graphics card; 16GB of RAM; and a 128GB SSD/1TB HDD storage combo. (The SSD is a boot drive.) We know the appearance of a 1060 card will raise some eyebrows given how it's been replaced by a few card iterations now. However. It's still a GPU that'll serve you very well for 1080p gaming, and combined with the other components should provide a comfortably competent gaming machine, if nothing blinding. The 1060 does give a decent graphical backbone to this laptop, which will be great as a go-to or everyday home or school-use laptop.

It's one of many compelling early Black Friday game deals we've seen, and it's a solid offering if you're in need of a laptop that plays games like Fortnite and Apex Legends, and performs as a reliable and quality everyday machine too. It's also worth throwing it out there that laptops with a similar spec and build are still going for around the $1000 mark so you're saving a bunch of dollars on this machine and getting Dell's warranty, build-quality, and service thrown in.
