The Asus TUF Gaming F15 has dropped below $1,000 for Cyber ​​Monday. B&H has the laptop for $969 with an 11th Gen Intel Core i7, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.

This model is a slightly older version of the TUF Gaming F15 we tested this year, which had a 12th generation processor.

This retail configuration also includes a 1080p, 144 Hz display, DTS speakers, and an RGB keyboard (what gaming laptop would be without it?).

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 is a sleek 14-inch laptop that’s ideal for gaming on the go. This 3.5-pound, 0.7-inch-thick system comes with a Ryzen 7 5800HS processor under the hood, with eight cores and 16 threads running at up to 4.4 GHz during intensive work.

The CPU pushes the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, which in turn drives the LED-lit 144Hz 1080p display. The laptop comes standard with 16GB DDR4-3200 memory and a 512GB PCIe 3.0 SSD. The laptop also comes with a customizable LED panel that adorns the top of the lid. You can see this in action in our Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Review, although it’s notable that the model we tested comes with a different CPU and GPU than this deal.

Grab a Razer Blade 14 with RTX 3070 Ti for $1,999.99

Razer’s AMD-based gaming laptop, the Blade 14, is on sale quite a bit at Best Buy, where an RTX 3070 Ti-powered configuration is just $1,799, down from $2,599. The model in question has a Ryzen 9 6900HX CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD and a 2560 x 1440, 165 Hz display.

In 2021, we tested an almost identical Razer Blade 14, but ours had the last-gen Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU instead of the current Ryzen 9 6900HX. But given that the GPU is the real driver of gaming performance, the one-generation difference in the CPU should have a small but positive effect on results.

We liked how thin and light the laptop was, and the 1440p display was bright and colorful. It also happens to charge via USB Type-C, although you’ll need the proprietary connector for gaming.

In our testing, the Razer Blade 14 was a gaming beast, boasting a strong 93fps on Grand Theft Auto V at 1080p resolution and very high settings. That beat most of its competitors, except those with more powerful RTX 3080 or RX 6800M graphics.

This laptop only weighs 3.92 pounds, which is very light for any gaming laptop, especially with RTX 3070 Ti graphics. The screen on our review device was pretty bright too, offering 332 nits of brightness, along with a solid 79 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut.

The MSI GE66 Raider, a smaller version of our favorite gaming laptop, the GE76 Raider, is on sale at Newegg. You’ll have to put it in your cart to see the price, but we’ll tell you right here: it’s $2,499, which means a $200 discount off the regular price.

Newegg’s retail configuration combines an 11th Gen Intel Core i9-11980HK with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 GPU, providing plenty of power for high-end gameplay. It also includes 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB of SSD storage.

Notably, the list says it will run Windows 10 out of the box. That might be great for purists, although upgrading to Windows 1 shouldn’t be a problem.

The 15.6-inch touchscreen has no resolution, so we’re assuming it’s 1080p (a separate 4K option does specify) and goes up to 165Hz.
