Of all the Black Friday laptop deals we've seen, this looks like it's one of the best. The Gigabyte Aero 15.6" 4K OLED Creator Laptop is down a whopping $650 when ordered online from Best Buy, down to $1,250 from a weighty $1,900. Not only that, but this baggable behemoth comes with a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 6GB graphics card, an 11th Gen Intel Core i7-11800H that can reach 2.3GHz~4.6GHz of processing power, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage. This is a big deal, both literally and metaphorically.

So yes - putting aside that more than a third reduction in price is a great thing in any situation, we also can't find any other retailer selling the Aero first-hand for anything close to that price, making it a clear winner among Black Friday laptop deals. To clarify - it's meant to be a creator laptop in theory, but it's clearly got the hardware to be good for those looking for the best gaming laptop deals, which is why Best Buy is bundling in a free month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate with it, as well as a no-cost three-month subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud Bundle. If you ever wanted to create worlds and destroy them in the same evening, now you have the option.

Of course, those who want a laptop more specifically designed for gaming can find other Black Friday laptop deals out there - for example, check out how to get $300 off the ASUS ROG Zephyrus, reduced to $1,549.99 from $1,849.99.
