When it comes to online gaming, a plain old laptop just won’t cut it. The thing has to be a beast with tons of storage, a blazing fast processor and a top-notch GPU (graphics processing unit) – and you’ll want a pretty high-end display too if you’re a serious player.
Unless you cut corners, the whole package will traditionally cost you approximately an arm and a leg, but today Amazon is saving the day with discounts on two of its best performing gaming laptops: the MSI GS75 Stealth Gaming lapton, which is an impressive $350 off, and the Alienware M17 R4 Gaming Laptop for $270 off.
Gaming laptops are designed for serious performance and feature powerful Intel Core processors for seamless gaming, but they also look as sleek and sophisticated as these machines. Ready to level up? Don’t miss these offers.
Amazon’s best deal on gaming laptops is from this fierce competitor. The MSI GS75 uses premium NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Graphics to bring games to life on the 17.3-inch display. But the first thing you notice is the adrenaline-pumping backlit keyboard with its glowing key edges and sleek black frame. This device also features CPU and GPU cooling technology to keep airflow and thermals at maximum, so your computer won’t overheat during intense gaming.
“This MSI is by far a better option than the other brands on the market,” a satisfied customer said. “It’s super fast, fluent in the processes I do related to my profession like electrical engineering. I have no problems running simulators, computer aided drawing programs like autocad, solidworks, etc.”

Game on! This Alienware Laptop features the latest 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor for enhanced performance and NVIDIA GeForce GTX Graphics for stunning output wherever you game. The M17 features a 360Hz 300nits 5ms FHD panel for smoother graphics and richer colors than its competitors. A thin monitor and lightweight feel (only 5.5 pounds!) make this gaming computer easy to carry. Enjoy all the action on your hefty 17.3-inch screen.
“Great purchase if you want to buy a laptop that will last several years,” a five star fan said in the reviews. “The Alienware m15 R4 is an excellent choice for gaming on the go… This particular laptop comes with quality components that will last and provide superior gaming experiences. All in all, a great choice for the price.”
