Update: This was originally published a few days ago, when the laptop was $1,050, but now it has dropped even further to $999.00.

Original story: Even during the height of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal madness, gaming laptops with Nvidia's RTX 2060 rarely dropped as low as $1,000. However, one of Dell's laptops with that GPU is now on sale for $1,049.00 at Walmart, a savings of $150 from the original MSRP and one of the best prices we've ever seen for an RTX 2060 laptop.

This Dell G7 17 has a 4-core/8-thread Intel Core i5-9300H processor, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card (not the Max-Q version, thankfully), 8GB of 2666MHz RAM, a 128GB SSD, and a 1TB 5400 RPM hard drive. The screen is a large 17.3-inch 144Hz IPS panel, with a resolution of 1920x1080.

This is one of the lowest prices we've ever seen for an RTX 2060 laptop, though the large physical size (to accommodate the 17-inch screen) might not be for everyone. It's also disappointing to see the small SDD+large HDD combo, instead of simply having a large SSD, but that appears to be the only 'catch' to this model.

This is one of the cheapest laptops with an RTX 2060 graphics cards that we've seen yet. The 128GB SSD+1TB HDD combo is a bit disappointing, as most other gaming laptops simply use a large SSD, but at least replacing the storage only requires a screwdriver.

On the bright side, the Dell G7 is easily serviceable, so you can swap in a higher-capacity NVMe SSD down the road if you need more quick storage. The hard drive can also be easily replaced with a SATA-based SSD, or a larger HDD. You have plenty of upgrade options—and you can check the best storage sales at our SSD deals roundup.
