The best cheap Cyber Monday gaming laptop deals might not utilize bleeding-edge specifications across the board, but you're still to find some stellar options for well under $1,000 to make the most out of the latest games with few (if any) compromises having to be made. Below we've rounded up a few options that will provide a great gaming experience without breaking the bank. 

When it comes to the cheapest Cyber Monday gaming laptop deals, you can currently pick up the Lenovo Legion 5, featuring the Ryzen 5 5600H and GTX 1650, for only $699 at Walmart. It's one of the most competitively priced models that we've come across given the hardware inside, as we rarely see such specs for under the $700 mark. 

If you're willing to spend a little more, however, then there are models featuring the RTX 3050 which gives you access to the likes of ray tracing and DLSS (digital upscaling) for higher frame rates and better overall fidelity. The Gigabyte G5 MD is one of the more feature-rich gaming laptops utilizing this mobile GPU. It's selling for just $849 (with a rebate card down from $1,200) and nets you a bump up to 16GB RAM and the RTX 3050 Ti for enhanced performance. 

Scroll down below to find our full roundup of the best cheap gaming laptops to pick up on Cyber Monday featuring components from both Nvidia and AMD, so all bases are covered well under $1,000. With that said, if you're looking for something more static, we recommend checking out the Cyber Monday gaming PC deals, too, for the latest offers on towers of all specs and sizes.
