Like the MSI model above, this Gigabyte isn’t on sale but 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.

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. Need more power? The step-up model with RTX 2060 graphics is discounted by $211.


The Asus ROG Zephyrus is the company’s thinnest, most compact gaming laptop. Despite its trim dimensions, the ROG Zephyrus does not sacrifice performance. It offers the latest silicon from AMD and the latest GPU from Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 30-series line. This model features an AMD Ryzen 9 CPU, an ample 24GB of RAM, a roomy 1TB SSD and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 graphics. The 15.6-inch display features a 2,560×1,440-pixel resolution and a speedy 165Hz refresh rate.
