The MSI GF65 Thin 15.6-inch gaming notebook (opens in new tab) has dropped to $699 at Walmart. This laptop normally sells for as much as $1,000, and there are variations that sell for even more than that. Today's price at Walmart is great value considering the built-in discrete graphics card. This will come with free two-day delivery, but you may need to go with in-store pickup to get it before Christmas.
The specifications include an Intel Core i5-9300H processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti graphics card, and a 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD. Includes a 1080p 15.6-inch display. Has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB-C, and Windows 10 Home.
This notebook has all the specifications you need for a solid gaming laptop, and you really get a lot of bang for your buck. It's powered by an Intel Core i5-9300H 2.4GHz processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM that can be expanded up to 64GB, and a 512GB M.2 NVMe solid state drive. It's definitely a gaming laptop because the graphics are powered by a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti graphics card, which uses Nvidia's Turing architecture that makes it as good as the regular GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. The laptop's specs are good enough that it's considered to be VR Ready.
You also get a 15.6-inch display with a 1080p display, IPS panel, and a 144Hz refresh rate, which is also a positive if you're into games like Call of Duty or Fortnite. The Thin part of the GF65 Thin model name means it has a nearly bezel-less edge to the display as well, which helps immerse you in whatever you're doing.
The six heat pipes work to keep the laptop as cool as possible, too, so you maximize the airflow and keep your gaming experience as smooth as possible. Enjoy Hi-Res audio, too.
Connectivity options include an HDMI port, four total USB ports including two USB-C ports, and a connection for Gigabit Ethernet. You get Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a long-lasting battery.
Download the MSI App Player on your phone and use it to not only create a seamless gaming experience for mobile games but also use its features to customize your laptop's keyboard lighting.
