Deal | MSI GL75 for $1200 USD is probably the cheapest gaming laptop at the moment with GeForce RTX 2070 graphics
The Holiday shopping season is almost here meaning a deluge of laptop sales are right around the corner. The latest deal involves the 17.3-inch MSI GL75 gaming laptop equipped with the Core i7-10750H CPU and GeForce RTX 2070 GPU for just $1200 USD after applying the coupon code '4STUDENT' and factoring in the $100 USD rebate card. Typically, gaming laptops with this same GeForce RTX 2070 would retail for around $1500 or higher.
Other than the high performance-per-dollar, the laptop comes with per-key RGB lighting, a 144 Hz/3 ms display, 16 GB of RAM, and two storage drives. Gaming laptops in this price range usually come with slower GeForce RTX 2060 graphics instead or less RAM and a poorer display to keep prices low.
The main drawback to the GL75 is its chassis. Unlike the pricier MSI GE or GT series, the less expensive GL series uses thinner and cheaper plastic materials for an overall budget feel. In other words, the GL75 may perform like a high-end gaming laptop, but it definitely won't feel or look as sexy as one.
