This is one of the best gaming laptop deals that we have seen all day. The MSI Pulse GL66 was already attractive from a price-to-performance ratio since it was available in the $1,300-$1,400 range, but on Black Friday 2022, the latest discount takes the cake. After all, when do you come across an RTX 3070 laptop that costs $1,099.99? There are other impressive aspects of the machine that we will get into shortly.
For instance, the Pulse GL66 features a 15.6-inch 1080p 144Hz IPS LCD, and though it is slightly thicker than your average gaming laptop, those dimension changes are there for a reason. Armed with an Intel Core-i7 12700H, which is a 14-core CPU (six performance cores, eight efficiency cores) and a 105W RTX 3070, you will experience phenomenal gaming performance. In terms of build quality, this MSI laptop is an all-plastic affair, which was expected at this price point.
You also get 16GB of DDR4 RAM and 512GB of PCIe NMVe storage, both of which can be upgraded down the road. There is also a healthy assortment of ports, ranging from HDMI, and USB-A, so you do not run into compatibility issues down the road. Given that this gaming laptop features an Intel processor, do not expect an all-day battery when you want to use it away from the plug, as we recommend that you have it plugged in using the barrel connector for as long as possible.
The keyboard features a chiclet-style mechanism, and right off the bat, the MSI Pulse GL66 runs Windows 11. If battery life and premium build quality are the least of your worries, you cannot go wrong with this gaming laptop. Unfortunately, the deal is only active for Black Friday, so make sure that you make the most of this opportunity.
