MSI’s Alpha 15 gaming laptop is $100 off at Newegg (opens in new tab) with an additional $100 rebate bringing the total price down from the usual $999 to $799.
The model on sales features 8GB of RAM and a 120 Hz display, but Newegg is also selling the computer’s 16GB/144 Hz model (opens in new tab) for $100 off right now as well, although the rebate no longer applies. Still, buying an MSI Alpha 15 laptop for $799 will net you an AMD Ryzen 7 3750H and an AMD Radeon RX 5500M at a price point well below the best gaming laptops and many others.
