Just because GeForce RTX 30 laptops are available doesn't mean older RTX 20 models are suddenly useless. Users in the market for a new gaming laptop ought to keep an eye out for the inevitable sales on last year's top GeForce RTX 20 sellers.

The latest GeForce RTX 30 laptops offer only moderate gains over the previous generation GeForce RTX 20 models. Thus, gamers on tighter budgets may want to take advantage of the inevitable sales for older laptops sporting the Nvidia Turing GPUs.

Newegg is currently listing the MSI GL65 Leopard 10SFSK for $400 USD off the original asking price. The deal is notable as it includes the GeForce RTX 2070 Super instead of the slightly slower GeForce RTX 2070 or RTX 2070 Max-Q. This makes the system one of the least expensive gaming laptops you can buy with this exact Nvidia GPU.

Other than its graphics, the configuration also comes with a Comet Lake-H Core i7 CPU, 144 Hz IPS display, 16 GB of RAM, and dual SSD+HDD storage. This should be a very capable gaming laptop for several years down the road based on these specifications alone.

Users should be aware that the GL65 is still a lower mid-range MSI laptop and so its chassis isn't going to impress when compared to the pricier MSI GS series or Asus Zephyrus series. See our full review on the MSI GL65 to learn more about the chassis and its physical features.

  • 15.6-inch 1080p 144 Hz IPS display (close to 100 percent sRGB)
  • Core i7-10750H CPU
  • GeForce RTX 2070 Super w/ 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM
  • 16 GB DDR4 RAM (2x SODIMM)
  • 512 GB NVMe SSD + 1 TB secondary HDD
  • USB-C, 3x USB-A, HDMI 1.4, Mini-DisplayPort, 3.5 mm headphones, 3.5 mm microphone, RJ-45, SD reader
  • 27.5 x 357.7 x 248 mm
  • 2.3 kg

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.
