This holiday tech deals season, we've seen some great sales on mid-range gaming laptops, including  a number of configurations of MSI's GL65. Right now, Newegg has a particularly-compelling version of the GL65 for just $1,149 after rebate.

Reduced from $1,399 after a discount and a mail-in rebate, this GL65 sports an Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU, which means that it can support ray-tracing in games like Battlefield V, Control and Metro Exodus. Its 144 Hz screen allows it to play games at high frame rates without tearing while its Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM make it more than capable of productivity and gaming. The 512GB SSD isn't huge, but you can easily upgrade it.
