Gaming laptops powered by the GeForce RTX 2070 GPU rarely drop below $1500 without heavy compromises elsewhere on the system, but this MSI deal has got almost everything covered all for a price that's close to a slower RTX 2060 alternative.

The performance gap between the mobile RTX 2060 and mobile RTX 2070 is not insignificant at about 20 to 30 percent depending on the laptops in question. Gaming laptops with the RTX 2070, however, will often retail for hundreds more than those with the RTX 2060. The 15.6-inch Asus Strix Hero G531GW with the RTX 2070, for example, retails for $1700 compared to $1300 for the RTX 2060-powered Asus ROG Strix G15 G512LV as of this writing.

This latest MSI GP65 deal on Amazon is notable because it is one of the least expensive 15.6-inch gaming laptops we've seen equipped with a GeForce RTX 2070. It doesn't appear to cut any corners elsewhere on the specifications sheet either with its Intel 10th gen Core i7-10750H CPU, 144 Hz/3 ms 1080p display, 512 GB NVMe SSD, 16 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, and per-key RGB keyboard lighting.

The main drawbacks to the system are nothing out of the ordinary. The loud fan noise, high core temperatures, and thick bottom bezel are common on most gaming laptops like the Alienware m15 or Asus ROG G15. Upgrading storage or RAM is easy, but it will require tearing a factory seal sticker which may impact your warranty.

See our full review on the MSI GP65 to learn more about it if you're on the fence. The GP series is home to MSI's budget to mid-range gaming laptops as opposed to the higher-end GE or GT series.

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.
