Laptop computers are good for a lot of things, but if you’re into hardcore gaming, it’s usually easier to find (or build) a desktop PC with discrete graphics and a high-end CPU.
There are some laptops designed for gamers, but they’re usually pretty expensive. But right now Woot is running a sale on refurbished gaming laptops, with some models selling for as little as $700.
Models on sale include Razer Blade and Razer Blade Stealth laptops, HP Omen, MSI Dominator, and Alienware 13 laptops.
Note that the warranty period for these models is probably a lot shorter than the one you’d get with a new computer. So that’s a good reason to have a few marathon gaming sessions as soon as you get your hands on the computer so you can detect any problems sooner rather than later.
Here are some of the day’s best deals.
