Deal | Get the Gateway Creator gaming laptop with RTX 2060 dGPU for only US$799
While scalpers and crypto miners are fighting over the already limited supply of RTX 3000 laptops, one may find some great deals for the previous gen models. Right now you can get a mid-range 15.6-inch Gateway Creator laptop with RTX 2060 for as low as US$799 at Walmart. Gateway was quite the PC OEM back in the 1990s, yet the new millennium came with a takeover from eMachines, so the Gateway brand slowly phased out. However, Walmart managed to revive Gatweay a few years ago and the joint venture is now offering some sweet laptop deals.
What exactly do we get besides that RTX 2060 dGPU for $800? The CPU side is quite modest with an Intel Core i5-10300H quad-core CPU coupled with 8 GB DDR4-3200 RAM and a 256 GB SSD produced by Phison. Still, the 120 Hz 15.6-inch FHD panel as well as the dual speaker system are said to be tuned by THX. Port selection comes with 1x USB-A 2.0, 2x USB-A 3.0, HDMI and DP outputs, GbE jack and audio jack. Other features include a 1 MP webcam, Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth 5.1, a microSD card reader supporting up to 512 GB capacities, plus a 46 Wh battery that should last for around 8.5 hours. Total system weight is 4 lbs. Gateway and Walmart are also offer a free Xbox game pass for PC.
This model uses a Tongfang white label chassis which is quite sturdy and allows users to easily upgrade the RAM along with the SSD solution. From what we hear, the IPS panel made by BOE has a decent color gamut, although it could get a bit flickery at lower brightness settings.
