Best Buy

This MSI model isn't on sale but is the lowest cost laptop I've encountered with Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series graphics. It pairs the RTX 3060 GPU with decidedly midrange offerings in a previous-generation Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM. The 15.6-inch display features a full HD resolution and a speedy 144Hz refresh rate.


Like the MSI model above, this Gigabyte is one of the lowest-cost laptops I've seen with RTX 30-series graphics. It features the RTX 3060 GPU along with a 10th-gen Core i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 15.6-inch screen has full HD resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate.

This RTX 3060-based model looks like an even better deal than the two picks above at its current $1,350 sale price. It has a slightly smaller 14-inch display but bumps you up to an 11th-gen Core i7 CPU. The 14-inch screen features full HD resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate, while the keyboard provides a bit of flair with three-zone RGB lighting.

IMHO, this is the best-looking gaming laptop on the market. Impossibly thin for a high-powered gaming laptop with a sleek, slablike look, this 15.6-inch Razer Blade machine also boasts a powerful, smart component lineup. Last month's astonishing Prime Day savings of $550 are no longer on offer, but you can still save more than $300 on the baseline Razer Blade. It features a 10th-gen Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics. The 15.6-inch display features a full HD resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate.

One of the first laptops based on AMD's Advantage Design Framework, this blazing, AMD-based model isn't on sale but provides excellent bang for your gaming buck, serving up an AMD Ryzen 9-900HX CPU and Radeon RX 6800M graphics along with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. The 15.6-inch display features Full HD resolution and a rocket-fast 300Hz refresh rate.
