To make room for upcoming 2014 stock, on Presidents Day several retailers are slashing prices to liquidate their 2013 PC’s. If you’re in the market for gaming laptop, now’s not a bad time to grab a discount on last year’s gaming laptops, from lower-end models to high-end models.

What exactly is a “gaming laptop” can be up for debate, but basically you’d want something that runs modern video games (we’re talking about 2012+, not 2009 games). That’s going to require a higher end processor, at least 8GB RAM, and mostly important: a discrete graphics card. After crunching the numbers on a ton of retailers, below are the top 8 price drops of Presidents Day. You’ll find everything from lower-end models with a GeForce GT 740M to faster mid-range models with GT 750M and high-end configs with GTX 770M.
