We've compared gaming laptops from Amazon Australia to see how their prices stack up against other Aussie retailers.
Why spend thousands of dollars on a tricked-out gaming PC when it's just going to spend most of the day sitting dormant at home while you're out and about? Wouldn't you rather the ability to take your beastly rig with you, playing the likes of Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed and Forza Motorsport on the train to work or during your lunch break?
Ten years ago, that might have been nothing more than a fantasy, but thanks to the breakneck pace of modern technology, today's gaming laptops are more than capable of powering the latest games without tying you down to a desk.
Of course, all that power doesn't come cheap, and it can be difficult to find a gaming laptop that fits within your budget. To help you with that, we've rounded up some of the most popular gaming laptops on the market and compared the best prices from Australia's biggest tech retailers.
Prices were last checked between 20 Dec 2017 and 22 Dec 2017 and may be subject to change. Prices include any discounts but exclude potential shipping charges.
