Best Buy could have the best Memorial Day gaming laptop deal yet, with an RTX 3060-powered laptop for just $800.

Gaming laptops with such a powerful graphics card tend to be much more expensive than this, so to see the MSI GF65 with a $300 discount is incredibly exciting. It's easily one of the cheapest RTX 3000-powered laptops we've seen this year and a deal that's not to be missed in this year's Memorial Day sales.

The RTX 3060 in this machine is backed up by an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a fast 15.6-inch 144Hz screen, which will help make games feel fast and responsive. Meanwhile, the 512GB SSD will give you plenty of room to store your games. It's worth noting that the processor in this model is an I5-10500H, which is a little older now but still more than powerful enough for decent performance at 1080p settings.
