Huawei gaming laptop deals


Huawei have risen to prominence in the last few years, and have developed a wide ranging portfolio of tech products.

ASUS gaming laptop deals

HP gaming laptop deals

These ranges combine everything you need to take on whatever genre of game you prefer with the seal of quality that only a brand such as HP can boast.

MSI gaming laptop deals

Unlike many gaming laptop manufacturers, MSI have always had a focus gaming, rather than laptops. As such, they're perfectly positioned to know exactly what gamers look for in their devices. They have an expansive range designed to suit every budget and requirement, with their Stealth range in particular extremely popular for its combination of value and, as the name suggests, portability.

Lenovo gaming laptop deals

Lenovo have also launched a range of dedicated laptops intended for gaming, the Series 3 and the Legion.

What is a gaming laptop?

A gaming laptop simply refers to any laptop that’s been specifically designed with the purpose of playing video games in mind. You see, whereas the early days of computing saw the internet rife with flash games that didn’t demand lashings of processing power, your standard word-processing laptop simply won’t be capable of running games such as the latest Far Cry, Call of Duty and Battlefield. A gaming laptop will run games at the highest possible fidelity, boasting a powerful enough GPU to always ensure a smooth experience.

Where can I buy a gaming laptop?

Various UK retailers have been quick to jump onto the gaming laptop craze, offering units from the likes of HP, Razer and MSI that have all been developed to offer PC players with the upmost convenience. We at Gaming Deals save you the trouble of scouring the internet in search of the best gaming laptops at the lowest price, comparing prices from such popular UK retailers as Argos, Currys/PC World and others. Some retailers offer a more extensive range than others, so we pull in the gaming laptop line-ups of everyone.

How is a gaming laptop different from a gaming PC?

Gaming laptops and gaming PCs share a lot of similarities, with obviously the major difference being the former’s inherent portability. Another comes from how a lot of PC players who opt for a traditional computer setup prefer to build their own using various components, whereas gaming laptops save you the hassle by letting you play the latest games in the best quality right out of the box. Because of this, though, gaming PCs can be continually upgraded over time to keep up with the processing demands of new games. Gaming laptops, meanwhile, are more affordable but usually have to be sent to its manufacturer to have a new graphics card or storage drive upgraded.

How much do gaming laptops cost?

Gaming laptops run the gamut of affordability, generally ranging anywhere between £400 to £3000. The higher the gaming laptop costs will directly correlate to the amount of power it’s packing, often featuring a better screen, better-equipped graphics card and a larger hard drive. Cheaper gaming laptops, on the other hand, will always come with certain concessions. The good news is that Gaming Deals aims to highlight all styles of gaming laptop at the very best price, comparing units from various UK retailers to ensure you get a great deal whatever your preference.

Why buy a gaming laptop instead of a desktop?

Gaming laptops hold one key advantage over desktops; their portability. However, the reason for their increasing growth in popularity among hardcore gamers is that this portability and accessibility is nowadays coming with fewer and fewer compromises in terms of power. Depending on your budget, gaming laptops are now able to go toe-to-toe with some of the most powerful gaming desktops out there, and can also outstrip the likes of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. 

There’s also been some significant leaps forward in design, enabled by the ever-improving technology that powers these laptops being far more compact. This means that having a powerful laptop no longer means lugging around something that resembles a full desktop in both size and weight. Modern gaming laptops are sleek, high performance devices that offer outstanding usability beyond the standard gaming remit. Equally, many top end laptops are now capable of running games at high quality thanks to their superb specs.

Why buy a gaming laptop instead of a console?

As you might have guessed, we love consoles! However, we also love helping our users to make informed choices and to find great deals no matter what gaming device they’re looking for.

Though consoles have made huge strides in the online gaming arena, there’s no question that the biggest online community and choice of huge online games continue to reside on PC. Gaming laptops also come with a huge library of games that are being constantly updated and tweaked available via launches such as Steam and Epic, which is less true in the case of the upcoming PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles, at least initially.

Gaming laptops also cater to a wider range of budgets - while most budget options will cost similar to what a PS4 Slim or Xbox One S will set you back at least, there are almost limitless options to invest in more powerful options should you wish.

What to look for in a gaming laptop

Buying a gaming laptop can be tricky, particularly if it’s not an area that you’re familiar with. These are the key features you should look for before choosing which gaming laptop to buy:

The processor

Processors are of utmost importance when picking a gaming laptop. Unfortunately, the terminology around them can be a bit labyrinthine. The key stat to look at (you may need to Google the precise processor you’re looking at) is the number of cores the processor has. These go as low as two and as high as sixteen, but for a solid gaming laptop, you’re probably going to want a minimum of four and ideally six or more.

Graphics card

While the processor determines what games the laptop can cope with in general, it’s the graphics card (or GPU) that dictates what resolution and at what frame rate you can expect. Unlike cores with processors, there’s not a quick and easy way of determining the power of a GPU (typically, the bigger the model number, the better), so some searching of particular models is always a good idea.

RAM

If you’re the sort of person who likes to have a lot of programmes running at the same time, RAM is important. The more GBs of RAM you’ve got, the more room you’ve got to play with when it comes to running programmes, which includes games, concurrently. Some gaming laptops go above and beyond when it comes to offering dozens of gigs of RAM, which is overkill for many games. However, it is still a key differentiating factor between gaming and non-gaming laptops. For most games, you need to be looking at around 8GB of RAM.

Hard drive

Though not as important as the other features on our list when it comes to actually playing games, it’s still important to bear in mind the size of the drive you’ll have to store games on. Most laptops nowadays have more than enough storage space, but if you’re a particularly prolific gamer, you might want to bear it in mind. Another consideration is the sort of hard drive the laptop comes with. SSDs are more expensive, but are much quicker, meaning loading times are reduced.
