That's not all Acer are looking to…

Looking for a budget gaming laptop deal to take your gaming on the go? Here's your latest roundup of all the best budget gaming laptop deals around that you can buy for under £1000 / $1000.

Save £199 on our favourite Acer gaming laptop

The Acer Predator Triton 500 was one of our favourite gaming laptops of 2019, but at £1799, its top set of components didn't come cheap. Thankfully, that’s no longer the case. At Scan you can get a slightly different version of the Triton 500 for considerably less money right now, with a superior Core i7-9750H CPU and an RTX 2060 graphics chip for £1600. Scan…

GPD’s 8in handheld gaming laptop is proper bonkers

I see you PC gamers looking longingly at your Nintendo Switch wishing it was a tiny, miniature gaming PC. I know I do, and that's partly why I'm hopeful / excited / vaguely optimistic about Dell's Alienware UFO doodad, which they unveiled earlier in the year. But while the UFO was just a 'concept' device, the mad folk over at GamePad Digital, or GPD, have…

Feature: In a good way, of course

The Asus Zephyrus Duo could be the Wii U of gaming laptops

The Asus ROG Zephryus Duo is unlike any other gaming laptop I've ever seen. It's one of the first wave of dual-screen gaming laptops coming out over the course of this year, and it's both baffling and beautiful in equal measure. It's beautiful because the engineering on its secondary 14.1in display is just so damn gorgeous. Seriously, I made a GIF of its sturdy, rock…

Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake H-series laptop CPUs are absolute speed demons

Intel have lifted the lid on their H-series of 10th Gen Comet Lake laptop CPUs today, and gee whiz they're nippy. With top clock speeds reaching all the way up to 5.3GHz in some cases, Intel are quite rightly calling these "the world's fastest mobile processors". It's not just the really high-end CPUs that have super high frequency speeds, either. Of the six new CPUs…

This Razer Blade Pro laptop is £550 off and comes with more free stuff than I know what do with

Gaming laptops are usually crazy expensive compared to their desktop counterparts, but your ever faithful deals herald has managed to find one that's quite possibly the gaming laptop deal of the decade. Right now, you can get an RTX 2060 Max-Q-powered Razer Blade Pro laptop from Ebuyer for £1650. That's still a fair old whack, of course, but when you consider a Blade Pro of…

Feature: GIFs are the new laptop stickers

Asus’ Zephyrus G14 laptop is a compact powerhouse with a strange animated LED lid

As well as a plentiful supply of new gaming monitors to coo over this week, this year's CES tech bonanza has also brought us dozens of new gaming laptops, including the world's most powerful 14in laptop, the Asus Zephyrus G14. But it's not so much the G14's souped up innards that have me all aflutter (although its 4th Gen AMD Ryzen CPU and RTX 2060…

The excellent Alienware m15 gaming laptop is $750 off right now

Dell's Alienware m15 is hands down one of the best gaming laptops I've tested this year, so imagine your deals herald's excitement when I learned it's one of the current doorbuster mega deals in the Dell US Black Friday sale. It's the RTX 2060 model that's up for grabs right now, and whereas this particular model would normally set you back a cool $2250, you…

This Asus ROG laptop is probably the best Black Friday gaming laptop deal I’ve seen so far

What's this? Another visit from your deals herald today? I do apologise, I really do, but I simply must tell you about this Asus ROG Strix gaming laptop deal I've found, because this Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti powered gaming machine is really quite a steal in Best Buy's Black Friday sale. Normally $1400, the Asus ROG Strix G731GU-BI7N9 is now down to a very sweet…

Feature: The next evolution of the gaming laptop?

The good, the bad and the ugly of tomorrow’s dual-screen gaming laptops

When I first saw HP's Omen X 2S dual-screen gaming laptop a couple of months ago, I thought they were having a laugh. After all, what could you possibly do with such a tiny secondary display above the main keyboard when you're playing games? It screamed 'gimmick' at the time, but after visiting Intel's Open House event last week (in between getting enslaved by the…

HP Omen’s ear-cooling gaming headset returns as the even more brilliantly named Mindframe Prime

By far one of the best hardware announcements to come out of last year's Gamescom was HP's ear-cooling Omen Mindframe headset. The name was just pure, unbridled brilliance, and its chilly, sweat-blasting thermoelectric ear cups were novel and worked surprisingly well in practice, even if its suspension-style headband didn't quite hold up comfort-wise once I got one in for review. Now, the Mindframe is back…

Acer Predator Triton 500 review: Finally, a gaming laptop that isn’t a jet engine in disguise

The Acer Predator Triton 500 is probably the first gaming laptop I've tested where I've almost completely forgotten it's a gaming laptop. Sure, the keyboard's RGB backlight is a bit of a giveaway, as is the blue LED Predator logo on the back of the display, but this is by far one of the quietest gaming laptops I've had on my desk in quite some…

Feature: AMD's Ryzen 7 CPU meets Nvidia's GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q GPU

Asus ROG Zephyrus G GA502 review: A slim 1080p gaming laptop for just over a grand

When AMD said they were going to get serious about sticking more of their 3rd Gen Ryzen 3000 H mobile CPU chips into proper gaming laptops this year, they really weren't kidding. Take the Asus ROG Zephyrus G, the ever so slightly fatter cousin of the ultra slim Asus ROG Zephyrus S I reviewed earlier in the year. It's not an outright AMD machine -…

HP’s Omen X 2S is the world’s first gaming laptop to have two screens for some reason

In a classic case of 'doing it because we can'-itis, HP have unveiled the world's first dual-screen gaming laptop. Dubbed the Omen X 2S, this gaming laptop not only has a regular 15.6in screen, but a smaller, almost touch pad-sized screen beneath it sitting above the keyboard. According to HP, you see, 82% of people use their phones for messaging while playing games these days,…

Feature: Which laptop will emerge victorious?

Acer Predator Helios 500 review: GTX 1070 vs Vega 56

Take a look at the specs of any of today's gaming laptops and there's a 99.9% chance it's got an Intel CPU and Nvidia graphics chip inside it. That's mostly because AMD haven't really bothered with gaming laptops for the last couple of years, but that's slowly starting to change. Case in point: Acer's Predator Helios 500 laptop, which is available in both AMD and…
