Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop (Intel Core i7, RTX 3050 Ti, 8GB RAM, 512 SSD) | $790 | Amazon

Not sure where to look for a good gaming laptop? Well, start here with the Acer Nitro 5. The screen is 1080p which should be fine at that size and it runs at 144Hz getting you a high frame rate in a portable package. Packed with an Intel Core i7 and an RTX 3050 Ti, you shouldn’t have a problem playing most games so long as the graphics aren’t pumped up to the maximum. It’s got a memory of 8GB and its 512 SSD will give you ample storage to at least get started. The rig’s 15% off right now bringing it to $790—a very reasonable price for an entry-level PC gamer.
