Amazon is offering the MSI 15.6-inch Gaming Laptop i7/8GB/128GB SSD + 1TB (GV62 8RD-034) for $799.99 shipped. That’s $150+ off the typical rate there and is within $1 of the lowest price we have tracked there. This laptop is powered by a six-core i7 processor that fluctuates between impressive 2.2-4.1GHz speeds. You start out with 8GB of RAM, but this laptop can be upgraded to 32GB in case the need arises. Rated 4/5 stars.

Update 4/15 @ 2:52 PM: Amazon is offering the Microsoft Surface Go with 4GB/128GB for $399 shipped. For comparison, you’d normally pay $399 for the 4GB/64GB model, and the only way to normally get 128GB of storage is to upgrade to the $549 version. The Surface Go is great for on-the-go document writing, web browsing, and video watching. Rated 3.9/5 stars.

We also spotted the ASUS ROG 15.6-inch Zephyrus Gaming Laptop i7/16GB/512GB (GX501) for $1,799 shipped at Amazon. That’s $900 off what its fetching at Best Buy and is a match for the lowest price we have tracked. Although this gaming laptop offers top-notch performance, its 0.7-inch thickness doesn’t keeps it packed into a conveniently-sized package. ASUS’ ROG line-up is well-rated.

Hesitant when it comes to spending this amount of money? Have a look at the deal we found earlier for Samsung’s Chromebook Plus. It’s much more affordable and offers a 2-in-1 form-factor.
