There have been a few deals with i5 and 1060 for under $800 maybe a couple with i7 but i5 vs i7 for gaming/VR is nearly meaningless. All that matters is the gpu and and an i5 doesn't bottleneck a 1060 at all. If you go with an i5 you should have no issues finding something in that range. I got a dell Inspiron with 1060 6gb for $750 AR last month.

Hmm I'm still looking around and cant seem to find something decent. I'll have to check for i5 instead. Do gaming laptops tend to overheat after awhile or get loud? I would assume they would but then again I've never owned one.
