Deal | Acer Nitro 5 with Core i5-8300H, GTX 1050 Ti graphics, and 256 GB SSD is only $630 USD right now
Now is a good time to buy a gaming laptop if you are gaming on a budget. The latest 9th generation of Intel CPUs in particular don't offer that much of a performance boost over the now cheaper 8th generation series. Thus, gaming laptops of yesteryear can be found at bottom-of-the-barrel prices and still have almost the same processing horsepower as the latest models.
As of this writing, Best Buy is currently offering the 15.6-inch Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop for $630 down from its original retail price of $800. The system packs a respectable Core i5-8300H CPU and GTX 1050 Ti GPU which will be about 15 to 20 percent slower than the latest laptops equipped with the newer and pricier Core i5-9300H and GTX 1650, respectively, when gaming. For nearly half the price, however, we think the target audience will appreciate the significantly better performance-per-dollar surrounding the sale.
