This RTX 3060 MSI gaming laptop is a smart penny-saver purchase at $850

Black Friday sales haven’t quite reached fever pitch yet, but we’re already seeing plenty to wet the whistle. One such decent deal is this MSI GF65 Thin 10UE-213 gaming laptop, listed over at Best Buy, for $849.99. For that, you get your hands on an the elusive RTX 3060 GPU, an Intel Core i5 10500 processor, and a 144Hz, 1080p panel.

I’m very familiar with this chassis and model of laptop, as I reviewed the RTX 2060 version of it back in 2020, which you can read up on in my MSI GF65 Thin 9SEXR review. A few of the key specifications have changed with this 10UE model, however, and for the better.
