A couple of 2021 laptops equipped with the new RTX 30XX mobile video cards are finally up for preorder today, and they’re not as expensive as you might think. In fact, Best Buy has one for under $1,000. You might want to lock your order in now just in case demand skyrockets once the benchmarks are released. Razer has also announced their 2021 lineup of RTX 30XX equipped gaming laptops and they’re up for preorder as well. In other deal news, Dell has a big sale going on thanks to a 12% sitewide coupon code, LEGO just introduced some new sets that are perfect for Valentine’s Day, and Walmart has an Xbox controller for as low as $39. These deals and more below.
Preorder the MSI GF65 15″ RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop for $999.99

The new generation of gaming laptops is here! The RTX 30XX video cards were a huge step forward in the gaming PC category, and we’re all expecting big things for the newly announced RTX 30XX mobile processors as well. There are a few options already up for preorder, but this particular model from Best Buy is by far the least expensive. It’s equipped with the RTX 3060 Max-Q video card. Benchmarks haven’t been released yet, but personally I’d be disappointed if this card didn’t match up to the current generation’s RTX 2070 Max-Q. If it indeed does live up to expectations, these new generation of laptops may sell out in short order. It’s best to be safe and preorder one in advance, since recent history has proven that it’s easier to cancel or return your preorder than to later secure something in high demand.
