The $1000 USD price range seems to be a sweet spot for many users looking for a brand new Ultrabook or gaming laptop. Our latest deal today is the 15.6-inch Gigabyte Aorus 5 KB gaming laptop retailing for $1150 before factoring in the $100 rebate card from Newegg.

The deal is notable for its Core i7-10750H CPU, GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, and 144 Hz FHD display with full sRGB coverage which are key specifications for any upper mid-range gaming laptop. Other gaming laptops for $1000 USD would typically come with the slower Core i5 CPU, GTX 1660 Ti GPU, 60 Hz display, or just half of the RAM or storage capacity instead. Opting for this Aorus 5 configuration will mean you won't have to make any major sacrifices in these key areas.

Drawbacks are mostly superficial. Users will not be getting a flashy or super-thin chassis a la the MSI GS series or Asus Zephyrus series. There is no per-key RGB lighting or Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, either. Assuming you can live with these disadvantages, then the Aorus 5 will offer strong gaming performance and an impressively accurate display especially at this price.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
