Our review of the Dell G5 15 SE cemented it as one of our favorite gaming laptops of last year. More than a year later, however, this laptop still packs plenty of power and its most powerful configuration is available at Dell for just $900. While Dell’s gaming laptops typically use Intel-based architecture, the G15 SE instead relies entirely on AMD hardware. A Ryzen 7 4800H CPU capable of delivering speeds up to 4.2 GHz and a 6GB RX 5600M GPU deliver excellent performance for 1080p gaming. While we weren’t thrilled with the aesthetics of this laptop, we couldn’t argue with the overall performance.
A favorite among Verge staffers, our review of the Xbox Elite Series 2 should give you some idea about how much we love this controller. Right now, you can add this beast to your gaming arsenal for $158, its lowest price ever at Amazon. This model brings back the backside paddles of its predecessor, as well as the swappable thumb sticks and a D-pad. Perhaps the controller’s biggest improvement, however, is its built-in rechargeable battery, which can last up to 40 hours on a single charge and can be recharged via the clamshell case, which doubles as a charging dock.
Looking to upgrade your aging gaming setup at home? If so, the curvaceous Razer Iskur gaming chair has received a hefty discount on Amazon, making it just $400 for a limited time. While it definitely raised some eyebrows last year with its snakeskin aesthetic, the Razer Iskur has proven itself to be one of the most comfortable gaming chairs in its class. The Iskur has a wide variety of adjustment options, as well as uniquely pronounced lumbar support that can be moved based on your height and posture. While its price point is certainly a bit on the high side, the Razer Iskur is a great investment for anyone who spends a considerable amount of time planted behind a desk.
The cringe-inducing humor of Borderlands 3 can be yours today for just $10 at Best Buy. The writing of the Borderlands series has always been divisive, but regardless of your stance on poop humor, the gameplay remains extremely addictive. A staple of the loot-shooter genre, Borderlands 3 marries a virtually limitless number of weapon combinations with RPG-style character builds and its own unique brand of comedy. While it definitely has more than enough features and content for an engaging single-player experience, the game also supports up to four players via online co-op. Right now, Best Buy is offering $20 off the physical version of the popular title on PlayStation (PS4 and PS5 compatible) and Xbox (Xbox One and Xbox Series S / X compatible).
