Gaming laptops are either traditionally incredibly expensive or rather bulky and unimpressive. The MSI GL65 Leopard is on sale for Black Friday and cannot be found in either camp. It's more affordable at $1,100 and comes with everything you require to enjoy the latest games like Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. This is a limited time deal, but I wouldn't be surprised if it ends early due to demand.
MSI GL65 Leopard | $300 off
Prepare yourself to save $300 on the MSI GL65 Leopard portable gaming battle station. This impressive piece of kit comes with a 15.6-inch FHD display with a 144Hz refresh rate, Intel Core i7-10750H processor, NVIDIA RTX 2070 GPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD.
Inside the laptop, you'll find an Intel Core i7-10750H processor, which has 6 cores and 12 threads clocked at 2.6GHz. When possible, the laptop will boost to anywhere up to 5.0GHz, providing additional firepower for your favorite PC titles. Alongside this CPU is 16GB of DDR4 RAM, which can be bumped up to a maximum of 64GB.
There's also a 512GB SSD for storing not only Windows 10 and all your apps, but also your huge Steam library. The highlight of the MSI GL65 Leopard is the GPU, however. For the price, you're also getting an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070. It's not quite as powerful as the desktop equivalent, but it's more than capable of most modern PC games.
The 15.6-inch FHD display ensures games aren't too taxing on the system, but offers headroom should the laptop be able to run them well. The low response time of just 3ms is great for gaming. So too is the 144Hz refresh rate. Looking for a new laptop to play games on? Look no further.
