You're right, this is a good gaming laptop for the price. It does have two SO-DIMM slots, and definitely needs another 8GB chip to get the laptop up to 16GB for gaming. I see them for around $30.

However if I were in the market and had to choose between this, and one of the laptops with a i7 9750H / 1660 Ti, I'd go with the Intel instead. You're looking at roughly $150 more considering most come with 16GB RAM already. Can take a look at previous deals if you search on Slickdeals for "9750h" and make sure it comes with a 1660 TI

I only say this because you're gaming at 1080P (assuming you don't hook up an external monitor). You will get a big FPS jump considering the resolution since most games are more CPU biased at 1080p.

For disclaimer, I'm not an Intel or AMD biased. I just built myself a Ryzen desktop rig with a 3900x but I'm gaming at 1440p, so CPU is almost a moot point in that case. Like I said, for laptop, I'd go with the Intel 9750H

Edit: Another way to look at it... You're already spending close to 1k. If you plan on keeping this laptop for the long haul (over 3 years), why get the 3750H

Yeah, except instead of just saying "IPS" they say "IPS-level" and "IPS-style" in a few places. Considering how hard some companies have been pushing TN as 'IPS-like' or similar, it doesn't instill confidence.

Asus would be smart to just say "IPS" and leave the modifiers out.

Not bad. Happy with my Intel and 1650 from BB BF. Extremely easy to upgrade these. A few screws, pop the bottom off, and easy access to 2nd HDD bay and memory sticks. 2X16GB memory will only set you back $100.

Sorry...I meant 2X16GB! $50 each. I guess if you wanted 16GB you just need to slap in another 8GB stick.

You all are crazy. THUMBS UP! This is a solid deal for a 1660TI laptop. It may lack a high refresh display, but for the money it's a great deal. You won't find much that outperforms this for $750.

Definitely, I agree with you on the CPU. I suppose my point is, for some, this $750 is a stretch in the budget and they may not have another $150 bucks. For the money, this is a solid deal. Although like you state, if you can swing it a 9750H is going to perform better.

If you missed Black Friday and Cyber Monday I guess this is an ok deal. I got an $800 Helio Predator with much better all around specs. It's got an i7, 16gigs, and 1660ti and I honestly wouldn't want anything slower. I notice rather full utilization in games. 144hz screen as well.
