Did you know that you can get an RTX 3080 gaming laptop for less than $1,800? That’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen on a system this powerful and certainly one of the best Black Friday gaming laptop deals out there.
Right now, the MSI GP66 Leopard with RTX 3080 and 11th Gen Intel Core i7 is $500 off — taking the price down to $1,799. But hurry! This deal won’t be around for long.
Of course, an RTX 3080 is a big selling point, but it’s not the only thing that makes a good system great. You need a good CPU, plenty of RAM and a massive amount of storage for those space-intensive games.
MSI’s GP66 Leopard checks all the boxes with a 15.6-inch, 240Hz display, a 2.2-GHz Core i7-10870H CPU, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB M.2 SSD. This combo easily makes it one of the most powerful VR-ready gaming laptops around.
And while we didn’t test this model specifically, it does share a lot in common with one of our favorite gaming rigs from the same brand. In our MSI GS66 Stealth review, its attractive design and solid overall and gaming performance won us over. We were also impressed by its solid battery life and gave it a 4 out of 5 star rating and our Editor’s Choice award.
At 5.3 pounds and 14.09 x 10.51 x 0.9 inches, the GP66 Leopard is in the same weight class as the Alienware m15 R4 (5.0 pounds, 14.2 x 10.9 x 0.7~0.8 inches). It’s slightly heavier than competitors like Gigabyte’s Aorus 15G (4.7 pounds, 14 x 9.6 x 0.9 inches) and Razer’s Blade 15 Advanced Edition (4.7 pounds, 14 x 9.3 x 0.7 inches).
The MSI GP66 Leopard is a wise choice if you’re looking for a powerful gaming laptop for under $2,000.
