It always seems that the most attractive RTX gaming laptop deals often involve you parting with an enormous amount of cash. Particularly when you're chasing those awesome RTX 3080 laptop beasts. However, that's not the case today, as we've found a small handful of RTX laptops at Dell that warrant your attention - particularly if you're looking at saving some cash, not splashing out, but still eyeing up the new 30-series.

Cutting to the chase, there are three RTX laptop deals on offer today, enabling swift and value-busting entry into the 3050-end of the RTX line. A Dell G15 Ryzen edition gaming laptop is down to just $820, a 3050 Ti-powered Dell G5 has $305 off its price tag and is now $880, and if you can stretch the budget just a little more, you can save over $300 on an Alienware m15 R6 laptop, which is an RTX 3060 laptop, and is now $1,180.

While these represent the least powerful 30-series cards on the market right now, you're still getting excellent value, and gear from Nvidia's latest graphics lineup. The AMD CPU in the G15 Ryzen variant is sure to be an additional pull to gamers who value Team Red's components. 

These are great prices, and if you're thinking about pulling the trigger before the Black Friday laptop deals and Black Friday Nvidia deals, then these might just fit the bill.
