If you’re looking for a gaming PC instead, the Alienware RTX 3080 desktop PC just dropped to $1799.

Alienware m15 R5 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop
Update: To get this deal, you must select Support – 1 Year Hardware Service with Onsite In-Home Service After Remote Diagnosis ($100) in the customization page and then apply coupon code “50OFF699” in your shopping cart.
This Alienware m15 laptop is equipped with a powerful AMD Ryzen 7 5800H 8-core processor, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and of course the RTX 3070 video card. The RTX 3070 found in this laptop has a TDP rating of 125W (115W + 10W dynamic boost), which is higher than the RTX 3070 TDP rating you’ll find in most other gaming laptops. Higher TDP means more power is supplied to the graphics card, and that directly equates to better performance in games. Most laptops are willing to sacrifice gaming performance in order to conserve power and reduce heat, allowing for thinner laptop designs with more basic cooling. Alienware laptops, however, prioritize gaming performance first and foremost. The video cards are more powerful, the proprietary “Cryo-Tech” cooling is more effective at cooling the components, and the main tradeoff is s slightly heftier 5.5lb weight.
Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16″ RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop
Walmart is offering an outstanding deal for a powerful gaming laptop from Lenovo. The RTX 3070 found in this laptop has a TDP rating of 140W. That is the maximum TDP rating you’ll find for a mobile RTX 3070 graphics card, meaning this is the one of the most powerful RTX 3070 gaming laptops you can get. Higher TDP means more power is supplied to the graphics card, and that directly equates to better performance in games.
Acer Nitro 15″ Intel Core i7-12700H Alder Lake RTX 3070 Ti Gaming Laptop
The Acer Nitro is jam packed with the newest tech that gaming laptops have to offer. To start off, this is one of the first laptops that features the new 12th gen Intel Core i7-12700H mobile processor with a whopping 14 cores. This processor is significantly faster than any Intel CPU before it, and actually beats out the Apple M1 Pro chip in many scenarios (albeit at a higher power consumption). The RTX 3070 Ti is the next generation of mobile RTX 30 series GPUs. Performance-wise it sits right in between the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080, no big surprise there. The 15″ display also boasts an above-average resolution of 2560×1440.
55″ JVC 4K QLED Roku TV for $248
Simply put, if you’re looking for a good sized 4K smart TV and want to pay as little as possible, you can’t get better than this. This JVC TV is currently the least expensive 55″ 4K TV you can get, and it even features a quantum dot LED LCD display (QLED) for wide color range and great contrast, and the excellent Roku smart TV interface.
CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme RTX 3060 Gaming PC
Currently this is one of the least expensive RTX 3060 gaming rigs we can find. It’s sold and shipped by Amazon direct (not a 3rd party vendor). Although the ship date is a little while off in early April, there are reports of some people getting it much earlier. The low price tag might imply that the RTX 3060 is not up to snuff, but nothing could be further from the truth. The RTX 3060 is about 20% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER and is on par with the RTX 2070. That means it handles 1080p gaming beautifully and has the chops to take on 1440p and VR.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3080 PC for $1799.99
The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5900 CPU, which is still one of the best processors out there, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It’s been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.
Samsung CRG9 49″ Gaming Monitor for $699.99
Need to add $14.99 Gamestop Pro membership to cart
The Samsung CRG9 shares many of the same features of the Odyssey G9 at a substantially lower price point. Like the G9, it boasts the same 49″ panel size, the same 5140×1440 DQHD resolution, and the same HDR1000 quantum dot (QLED) panel with 95% DCI-P3 color space. Unlike the G9, however, the CRG9 has a 120Hz refresh rate and it’s not NVIDIA certified G-SYNC compatible. The latter is really a moot point, though, because even though it’s not officially G-Sync compatible, plenty of people have reported that this monitor works perfectly well with G-SYNC enabled.
Seagate Firecuda 8TB RGB Gaming Hub
You’ll need a traditional hard drive instead of an SSD in order to get 8TB of storage for an affordable price, but you might as well get the fastest hard drive there is. The Seagate Firecuda 8TB Gaming Hub sports a USB 3.2 interface and a performance hard drive that spins at 7200RPM as well as fancy Razer Chroma-compatible RGB accent lighting. It also has USB 3.2 Type A and Type C ports as passthrough. It normally retails for over $200, but Gamestop has far and away the lowest price at only $138.99. Considering the fact that a regular ol’ non-RGB 8TB 7200RPM external hard drive usually costs more than this hard drive, you can see why this is a pretty sweet deal.
Acer Predator 32″ Gaming Monitor
The Acer Predator XB323U is a 32″ 2560×1440 IPS gaming monitor with a 1ms response time, 170Hz refresh rate (through DisplayPort), NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility, and VESA certified HDR600. It normally retails at $800, but Amazon is offering it for $300 off.
10% Off $50 Nintendo eShop Gift Card
Save $5 off any game at the eShop with this digital gift card from Amazon. Use it to pick up rarely discounted favorites like Super Smash Bros Ultimate or Metroid Dread, recent new releases like Kirby and the Forgotten Land or Triangle Strategy, or DLC like the new one for Animal Crossing: New Horizon. Or you can just hold onto the card and use it during the next eShop sale, since it stacks with instant discounts.
Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Console with Game
This is a convenient bundle for those who want the Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing themed gaming console, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game, and the official Animal Crossing Aloha Edition carrying case. It’s also cheaper than buying each item separately (the game retails for $60 and the case retails for $25). This themed Switch console is, in my opinion, the best looking and most thought out design of the themed Switch consoles. In addition to the exclusive pastel blue and green Joy-Con controllers, both the Switch dock and the rear of the Switch chassis features cute Animal Crossing designs.
Xbox Series S Console with 2nd Controller
Dell is offering the Xbox Series S gaming console (which comes with one wireless controller) bundled with a second Xbox wireless controller for only $317.99. That’s basically paying $18 for that second controller. Considering the Robot White controller normally runs about $60, that’s a great deal if you were planning to pick up a second controller anyways.
48″ and 55″ LG C1 4K OLED Smart Gaming TVs
Supports 4K @ 120Hz for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X gamers
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for both the 48″ and 55″ LG C1 OLED TVs. If money isn’t an object, OLED TVs are considered the best TVs you can buy right now. Compared to traditional LED LCD TVs, they offer better image quality, deeper blacks, better contrast ratio, wider color gamut, and super fast response times. They excel at both gaming and viewing 4K HDR content. In terms of general usability, they consume less power and they’re very thin and sit flusher against the wall. Amongst OLED TVs, the LG C1 is oft considered the flag bearer; it’s the one TV that all other OLED TVs are compared against. The LG OLED TV boasts several generations of optimizations under its belt and the latest C1 model is future proofed with technology like HDMI 2.1 (4K @ 120Hz), variable refresh rate, G-SYNC, the newest LG A9 Gen4 processor and a revamped webOS smart TV interface.
New Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
This is the newest generation model with the MagSafe compatible wireless charger. The AirPods Pro is considered one of the best noise-cancelling in-ear headphones you can get, especially for under $200. The noise cancellation is considered to be even better than the Bose Quietcomfort because of the natural noise isolating design of the in-ear earbuds.
Apple Watch Series 7 and SE
The Series 7 is Apple’s latest and greatest watch. Today, both the 41mm and 45mm models are heavily discounted on Amazon (cheaper than Black Friday). The biggest upgrade the Series 7 has over the Series 6 is the display. It has the same always-on Retina display, but it’s 20% bigger and features a more crack-resistant front crystal screen. It also adds on even more health-related features, like measuring your blood oxygen or taking an ECG. If the Apple Watch Series 7 is out of your budget and you don’t think you’d make much use out of the health features, the newest Apple Watch SE is also on sale today at the lowest price ever. This affordable smartwatch features a Retina OLED display, Aple S5 chip, optical heart rate sensor, fall detection, and an always-on altimeter.
Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED Gaming Monitor
The first QD-OLED panel on the market
After much anticipation, Dell is now offering the Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED gaming monitor for $1299.99 on its website. Although by no means inexpensive, this is the first ever QD-OLED monitor we’ve seen and thus the price point is surprisingly reasonable for the new tech. Undoubtedly due to the hype, it has been going in and out of stock throughout the day, so don’t hesitate if you’ve been waiting for this release. If you don’t put your order in now, you’ll have to wait a very, very long time to receive it; estimated ship date has already been pushed back to June.
HP Victus RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC for $975
This is far and away the lowest price we have ever seen for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3060 Ti GPU. Once you hit the product page, you’ll have to select “RTX 3060” for $250 and a “500W Power Supply) for $50. You can buy the system as is, or you can choose to add a few more choice upgrades. You certainly have leeway with this super cheap price.
ASUS Vivobook 14″ Laptop w/ WQXGA+ OLED Display
This ASUS Vivobook laptop has one of the best laptop displays we’ve seen, especially at this really low price. The 14″ OLED display sports a 16:10 WGXGA+ (2880×1800) resolution with a 100% DCI-P3 color range and Pantone color calibration. It’s paired with an Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. It even has a Thunderbolt 4 port.
Samsung 980 Pro 1TB M.2 SSD
If you want to stick with another brand you’re probably more familiar with, check out the Samsung EVO 980 PRO solid state drive. Samsung EVO SSDs need no introduction, and the 980 PRO is the best of the best. It is fully PS5 compatible with read speeds of up to 7,000MB/s. No heatsink is included but you can pick up a cheap $10 one on Amazon.
