Deal | MSI Sword 15 laptop with Intel i7-12650H and RTX 3070 Ti dGPU drops to US$1,199 at BestBuy
As the new CPU and GPU generations are entering the market, laptops with previous gen configurations are starting to get handsome discounts at various retailers. With the Black Friday deals from last year, some RTX 3070 laptops dipped close to US$1,100, and now it is time for the RTX 3070 Ti models to see some generous price slashes. BestBuy right now has a US$400 discount on the MSI Sword 15 gaming laptop with Intel i7-12650H and Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti, which is on sale for only US$1,199.99.
This particular model from MSI comes with a white color scheme and blue backlit keyboard. The i7 processor is complemented by 16 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM (upgradeable to 64 GB) and a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD (one M.2 slot vacant). Despite having a cooling system with 2 fans and 6 heatpipes, the RTX 3070 Ti card is limited to a maximum of 105 W TGP. It is also worth noting that the chassis is fairly thin at 24.9 mm and weighs 4.63 lbs (2.25 kg).
On the display side, we find a 15.6-inch IPS panel with 1080p resolution and 144 Hz refresh rate. Port selection features 1x USB-C 3.2 Gen 1, 2x USB-A 3.2 Gen 1, 1x USB 2.0, an HDMI 2.1 video out, plus audio combo and GbE jacks. Wireless connectivity comes via a Wi-Fi 6 + BT 5.2 card and other standard features include a 720p webcam, 2x 2 W speakers and a 53.5 Wh battery.
BestBuy's offer also comes with a 1-month Xbox game pass.
