You’re not just looking for a workhorse. You want to get a laptop the game. Maybe that means a higher-refresh-rate screen for increased frame rate, or even increased responsiveness in less demanding games. But above all, you want bang for the buck. That’s why you buy now, during Black Friday week, when some of the best deals (and a bunch of predatory nets) appear.
These deals caught my eye — ones I might consider myself or recommend to a friend, depending on their needs and budget. Let’s start with the least expensive and go from there!
November 23rd Update: Several more deals have been added.
