The MSI Sword 15.6-inch gaming laptop is on sale today for $799.99 through Best Buy. The sale is part of Best Buy's deals of the day, which means it is only available through the end of the day. Normally this machine is going for something closer to $1,200 and it has a configuration similar to models in that price range. This is a great way to save and get a decent gaming laptop in one fell swoop.
The internal specifications for this laptop are pretty nice. You get an Intel Core i7-11800H processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM, a 512GB solid state drive for both fast loading times and storage, and a dedicated Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics card. That's plenty of power for your favorite games with room to upgrade if you want.
The laptop also comes with a built-in 720p webcam, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for wireless connectivity, and a backlit keyboard. Play games and watch media on the 15.6-inch display with an IPS panel, 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, and a 144Hz refresh rate. That refresh rate is well above the average and will help make your first-person shooters and other games look that much better.
The ports include two USB-A 3.2 ports, one USB-C port, and one USB 2.0 port for connecting a peripheral like your gaming mouse.
