Best Buy has the Acer Nitro 5 15.6-inch Laptop with 2.5GHz/8GB/256GB SSD and an 4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti for $599.99 shipped. Normally $800, this laptop goes for around $700 at retailers like Newegg right now. This is one of the best prices we’ve tracked for a gaming laptop like this in a while. This is the perfect computer for someone who wants to get their feet wet in PC gaming without going all-in on a custom built desktop. With its 4GB GTX 1050Ti dedicated graphics card, this laptop should play most games at medium to high settings fairly well on the built-in 1080p screen. Rated 4.1/5 stars on Amazon.
