This is probably the cheapest laptop we've seen with the GeForce RTX 2060 GPU and 120 Hz 1080p display. However, you're going to want to upgrade the 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB PCIe SSD at some point to get the most out of the system.

Gaming laptops with the GeForce RTX 2060 launched almost two years ago with high starting prices of about $1400 USD. Fast-forward to Holiday 2020 and now laptops sporting this same GPU can be found for almost half the price. The Walmart Gateway Creator is currently on sale for $700 down from its original launch price of $1000.

The highlight of the deal is its high performance-per-dollar as most gaming laptops in this price range would typically come with the much slower GeForce GTX 1650 instead. The Walmart system even includes a 120 Hz IPS display to reduce screen tearing and increase responsiveness.

Of course, there are some drawbacks to keep in mind. The Core i5-10300H CPU, for example, isn't nearly as fast as the latest Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 CPUs. Furthermore, the configuration comes with just 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of PCIe SSD storage which are barely enough for the latest games. These modules are thankfully user-upgradeable, but warranty may be impacted.

We also can't confirm if the 120 Hz display is a Panda panel. Such panels tend to offer high refresh rates but with poor colors and slow black-white response times. Note that the Gateway laptop utilizes a Tongfang white label chassis similar to some Schenker laptops.
