Arguably the best gaming laptop deal this year has just been relisted over at Best Buy today - this RTX 3060 equipped MSI GF65 for $799.99 (was $1,099.99)

It's not the first time we've spotted this one at the retailer - it's been an one and off feature for a few months now - but it's an absolute steal in our books. If you're someone who follows gaming laptop deals regularly, you'll know that bagging an RTX 3060 in a machine for under $799 is a real bargain.

It's this powerful graphics card, alongside a $300 saving, that's going to give you some fantastic bang for the buck here. Also featuring 8GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and a Intel Core i5-10500H processor, this machine is more than capable of outputting some great performance 1080p resolution with fairly high settings in-game.

If portability is a priority for you, then you could also check out today's gaming laptop deal on the Asus Dash F15 at Best Buy. The RTX 3060 variant is going for just $999 today after a $200 discount and offers a speedy machine with a Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB all in a chassis that's under 0.8-inches thick. This one isn't quite as good bang for the buck as the MSI above, in our opinion, but it's definitely a great choice if you're going to be lugging your laptop around regularly.
