This $499 MSI GF63 Thin is a gaming laptop deal you won’t want to miss

Gaming laptops have come a long way, and it’s no longer required to buy a giant slab of heavy plastic to get a capable portable workstation. The same goes for the price, especially as we head into Black Friday. The MSI GF63 is a gorgeous gaming laptop that’s both compact and contains powerful components for enjoying the latest games.

The model in Walmart’s promotion today includes an Intel Core i5-10300H CPU, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q GPU, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 256GB SSD. That’s more than enough to enjoy countless PC titles, from the most popular MMOs and MOBAs to the latest RPGs and shooters. It’s all yours for just $499, a saving of $325.

It’s available at Walmart where the deals kick off today at 3 p.m. for Walmart+ members and 7 p.m. for everyone else. If you want to get in early to reserve a unit for yourself, you’ll want to sign up for Walmart+ (not the free trial) to gain access in the earlier bracket. You can always cancel the subscription at the end of the month!

Don’t let the older 10th Intel Core i5 processor or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 fool you into thinking this gaming laptop isn’t powerful. The processor is still a solid workhorse in 2021 with four physical cores and eight threads. The GPU isn’t the best, especially when compared to modern RTX 30-series graphics cards, but it’ll get by so long as you don’t try to turn everything up.

Where all this technology shines is in portable use. The GPU and CPU are designed to be lighter on the battery, allowing you to get more gaming done between charges or before needing to be chained to an outlet. At just $500, you’ll be able to purchase a companion that can be taken to LAN events to enjoy some lighthearted game time with others.
