Deal | MSI GL65 with Core i5-9300H, GTX 1650 GPU, and 512 GB SSD is only $599 right now after rebates
Black Friday is merely two weeks away and most retailers are already celebrating early. The latest laptop deal is the MSI GL65 9SC equipped with Intel's latest 9th gen Coffee Lake-H Core i5 processor, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, 1080p display, and a roomy 512 GB SSD For $699 on NewEgg. The retailer will throw in a $100 rebate card for a final price of $599. When considering that laptops with the GTX 1650 launched earlier this year for about $900 to $1000 USD, the $600 sale price is a good Holiday deal for users interested in a a budget gaming laptop.
Of course, almost no deal comes without some catches. This particular GL65 SKU ships with just 8 GB of RAM that will likely be single-channel only. Furthermore, the 1080p display will likely have a narrow color space and so colors won't be as vibrant or accurate as most flagship Ultrabooks. Thirdly, fan noise can be pretty loud at about 51 dB(A) based on our time with the GL65 9SEK SKU and its more powerful RTX 2060 GPU.
