If you’re buying an Nvidia GPU-based gaming laptop, RTX 3080 Ti is the extremum. We don’t have RTX 3090 or 40-series laptops yet, and we have a long way to go before seeing one. But even amongst the RTX 3080 Ti laptops, you can secure a great deal by buying one of the cheapest and most value-for-money laptops. You don’t need to research or scroll through the entire internet; leave that to us, and we have already done it for you. Here’s a list of the cheapest and most valuable laptops with an RTX 3080 Ti GPU.

Cheapest RTX 3080 Ti Laptops – October 2022

Before you go on and buy the cheapest laptop on this list, you need to keep a few factors in mind. Not every laptop with a 3080 Ti will perform similarly. That’s because of a critical factor called TGP (Total Graphics Power). Different models of the RTX 3080 Ti will have different TGPs, the maximum being 175 Watts (W). The power of the GPU will dictate your laptop’s performance and capabilities.

Another factor is the VRAM or Video RAM. Like RAM, VRAM temporarily stores data for a smoother experience without stutters and lags. More VRAM equals a better gaming experience and better FPS.

Alright, technical jargon aside, let’s head to the list.

1. Alienware m15 R7 – $2,499.99

Trust me, I tried to find a cheaper laptop than the m15 R7 but failed(I’m sorry if I missed a laptop, I’m still learning and honing my research skills). Alienware is a common name when it comes to gaming systems and laptops. Its actual price is $2,949.99, but you can save $450 thanks to Dell’s Black Friday Pricing. Note: It’s a limited offer pricing.
