Today you can score this laptop on the cheap for a mere $749.99, which is $250 off the regular MSRP. This deal comes during Best Buy's counter-sales on Prime Day.

The laptop comes replete with high-end options, like a Ryzen 5 2750H processor, 512GB of fast PCIe SSD storage, and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card that powers a 17.6" 1920x1080 LED panel.

At just 5.84 pounds and a 1.1" thickness, the laptop is also plenty portable for gaming on the go.
