MSI manufacturers some of the best gaming laptops around and its GF65 Thin is $300 off at Best Buy. It packs a 15.6-inch (1920 x 1080) IPS display, 2.6-GHz Intel Core i7-9750H 6-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics.

MSI's GF65 Thin is among the more affordable gaming laptops out there — especially at this price. The laptop in this deal packs a 15.6-inch (1920 x 1080) IPS display, 2.6-GHz Intel Core i7-9750H 6-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics, and a 512GB SSD.

Although we didn't test this exact model, we find that MSI laptops generally deliver powerful graphics and overall performance. In our MSI GS66 Stealth review, we liked its gorgeous, lightweight design and great battery life. 

At 4.1 pounds, and 14.1 x 10 x 0.85-inches, the GF65 Thin is lighter and thinner than the Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 (5.1 pounds, 14.2 x 9.9 x 0.7 inches) and Razer Blade 15 (OLED) (4.9 pounds, 13.9 x 9.3 x 0.7 inches). By comparison, it's lighter and thicker than the Acer Predator Triton 500 (4.8 pounds, 14.1 x 10 x 0.7 inches). 

The MSI GF65 Thin is a solid pick if you're looking for a gaming laptop under $1,000 that's good on performance.
