Hardware

This Gateway laptop with a GTX 2060 and 120Hz screen is back down to $799 again

This 6-core AMD Ryzen laptop packs in a GTX 1650 and 120Hz screen for just $599

This one pops up on sale every so often, and each time it does, I feel compelled to let you know about it, because $799 is a fantastic price for the hardware. The star of the show, of course, is the GeForce RTX 2060. It’s slightly less interesting now that Nvidia has launched its GeForce RTX 30 series in mobile form, but still an exciting option in this price range.

To put the price into perspective, the least expensive laptop with an RTX 2060 at Best Buy (non open box/refurbished, that is) is the MSI GS66 10SE, currently discounted from $1,500 to $1,100. It’s a beefier config all around, though it should be, at $300 more than the Gateway Creator model highlighted here.

Ray-traced gaming for $799? Hell yes! Of course, this laptop would be even better if you spend a bit of money upgrading the RAM to 16GB and the SSD to 512GB. But those are relatively inexpensive upgrades, and easy to perform on this model.
