The best RTX 3060 laptop deals in January 2022

GamesRadar logo GamesRadar 4 days ago Aleksha McLoughlin

As one of the cheaper cards available from Nvidia, an RTX 3060 laptop won't break the bank but still offers the next generation of mobile computing. If you're looking to spend between $800 and $1,500 (£800 and £1,500), this is the configuration you should be looking at and, paired with Ryzen's 5000 series or Intel's 11th generation processors, these machines are capable of some serious power. 

The only risk with picking up a cheap RTX 3060 laptop deal is sacrificing a little RAM. More affordable configurations do tend to skimp on this more expensive component, which means it pays to make sure you know how much you're getting and how much you'll need from each rig on offer. However, if you're only looking to play lighter titles, there are some excellent prices out there for you. 

We're rounding up all the best RTX 3060 laptop deals this week right here, with our top picks from retailers known to regularly discount current-generation models.

Sure, this is a starter rig with 8GB RAM and an i5-10500H processor. However, you're still getting that current-gen GPU and 512GB of SSD storage.

Why buy an RTX 3060 laptop

As far as the best gaming PCs are concerned, you need something that's both versatile and fast but that's also well equipped for any game you throw at it. However, prices on top of the range rigs can certainly shoot through the roof, which is why it's important to balance that performance with your wallet. An RTX 3060 laptop with enough RAM and a decent processor shouldn't cost you more than $1,500 / £1,500, especially when on sale (and thanks to Black Friday laptop deals we're seeing more and more prices hit that sweet spot right now). That makes it perfect for anyone looking for a taste of today's tech without splashing out on features they won't necessarily make the most of. 

That may be the case if you're looking for an RTX 3080 laptop or an RTX 3070 laptop. These machines rarely drop below $1,000 / £1,000 but the performance boost on offer may not even be necessary, especially if you're not playing demanding games. 

Certain brands - such as Razer laptops and Alienware laptops - are well regarded by many PC gamers for good reason; while expensive, the build quality and form factor more than makes up for it. 

RTX 3060 gaming laptops do feature one of the best graphics cards that you can buy at the moment. However, actually getting your hands on that GPU by itself has been proving difficult for years. Laptops, on the other hand, have been packing these RTX 3060 cards for a while now, and regularly see discounts. If you are looking to pick up a desktop model, though, we're showing you where to buy RTX 3060 right here.
