We love the Razer Blade 15, it's one of the most well built gaming laptops money can buy. This one's a bit of a belter with an RTX 2080 Super, Core i7 CPU and 16GB of RAM - more than powerful enough to blast through any game you can think of. With $1,400 off it's a real bargain at $1,599.99.
Another deal on the Razer Blade 15, this time with a 2070 super graphics card. It might be last-gen but it's still a beast, and of course, has all the same great features as the other Razer Blade 15 models. An absolutely fantastic price at $1,399.99 down from $2,599.99.
With a giant 17.3 inch display that runs at 1080p 144Hz, this Asus TUF laptop is a great option for esports titles like CSGO. The RTX 3050 will power through less graphically demanding games with ease, you might have to turn some settings down when it comes to AAA titles though. A great buy at just $679.99.

When is Black Friday 2021?
Black Friday will fall on 26 November 2021 and be followed by Cyber Monday on 29 November. Cyber Monday is often associated with tech deals online, but in truth, the discounts all start much earlier.
In previous years we've seen sales events starting in early November, giving laptop hunters a couple of weeks to see the deals and grab the device they're after. Some savings will be limited to the Black Friday weekend, but the smart shoppers will know what they want to buy and keep an eye on the action from the middle of November onwards.
