Not a bad price considering currently GPU are unobtainable nowadays and especially at a decent prices. The best card microcenter had in stock was a 1660ti for $450 everything else has been sold out or out of reach so laptops kinda make sense right now.

Seems pretty decent if you just slap another stick of ram in there. $100 Dell offer was just added it to my American Express card though, I think I will hold out to see if anything comes along from them.

He is referring to this deal
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Gatewa.../425492039

It's a Tongfang chassis with the Gateway brand slapped on it. Supposed to be decent?
This laptop has been around $650-$700 during last BF/Christmas sale fyi.

It's a smaller ssd in the gateway (250GB), so there's a tradeoff to getting a newer CPU. You can always upgrade the SSD yourself though, while a laptop CPU isn't easily upgradeable.

This MSI is an ok solid deal (with a backpack thrown in free, and a 144hz screen) compared to it's past deals...MSI laptops tend to cost more, so they always garner some attention. But others will say they would never buy this since it is newegg, and other issues they may know about, etc. Any RTX 2060 laptop for $800 or less deserves a look.
(probably clearing old stock out for newer models this year... )
----------------------
Not as good as past laptops for a $100 more eg. Lenovo y540, but everything is usually slightly incrementally better than others for the price we pay. Deals are competitive with plenty of choices in the $700- $1100 range.I'd probably go for the Gateway since it had 10th gen i5 vs 9th and easier return to Walmart...or just wait for newer laptops and spend couple hundred more.
----------------------

Here's a similar old slickdeal post for this laptop at $900 in the Fall. (except that one only had 120hz, vs this one has 144hz)

If you are buying from Newegg, this is probably a better deal: https://www.newegg.com/bonfire-bl...klink=true

Much better processor, and I'd put ~$0 value on a 80W 2060 over a 1660Ti.... they'll perform the same.

RTX cards can use DLSS which gives you a lot more FPS in games that support it.

Isn't this laptop has fake vents on the bottom along with bad cooling system that thermal throttles like crazy? I believe Hardware Unboxed did a video and had back and forth arguments with ASUS about this. The guy actually took a Dremel to those fake vents.

He doesn't really know what he's talking about. Wide open grills are good for actively cooled components like CPU and GPU, but they create hot spots everywhere else, like other motherboard components, RAM, SSD, etc. Those components end up with no airflow to dissipate heat. When you create airflow tunnels like ASUS has done, then your CPU and GPU may register a few non-consequential degrees higher, but you're ensuring that there's active airflow over other components too.

MSI generally has the most poorly designed products that experience chassis failure soonest, so I find it amusing that someone's praising their thoughtless mesh-bottom design while trashing Asus.

The CPU is useless in this.
