The best MSI gaming laptops have all the speed and elegance of an ancient dragon. Ok, well maybe not an actual dragon but they do deliver smooth framerates in style. MSI is a name associated with powerful gaming components and can be found in our list of the best gaming laptops (opens in new tab) around. So I thought it best to find you the best prices on MSI gaming laptops. This week I programmed my super secret deal-finding bots to scour the entire internet for the best MSI gaming laptop deals out there. 

If you're after true portability without sacrificing performance, the MSI Stealth Thin takes full advantage of Nvidia's Max-Q technology, with a slim-line chassis that weighs in at less than five pounds. You'd have a tough time finding a better gaming laptop giving the same level of portability, without ducking out on FPS.

If portability is second on the list, and performance is your top priority, a heavier 'muscle class' laptop (aka. desktop replacement) with more powerful components might be a better bet. The MSI GT75 Titan, for example, with its choice of full-fat GTX or RTX graphics, these aptly named machines can handle recording, streaming, and editing too, as well as some immense gaming sessions.

MSI Pulse GL66 | Nvidia RTX 3070 | Intel Core i7 11800H | 15.6-inch |144Hz |1080p | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,499 $1,275 at Amazon (save $227) (opens in new tab)
The RTX 3070 is far more capable in mobile form than it is on the desktop, particularly when driving a 1080p screen like this. Pair that with an 11th Gen Intel CPU, and that 144Hz screen will be well used. This is a decently specced gaming laptop that will handle whatever you throw at it.

MSI Pulse GL66 | Nvidia RTX 3050 | Intel Core i7 11800H |15.6-inch 144Hz 1080p | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $1149 $1049 at Gamestop (save $100) (opens in new tab)
You're not seeing double, but Gamestop has a sale on a slightly lower spec GL66. You get all the same goodies from the above model, except this one comes with an RTX 3050 to keep your price under $1000. This model does have a sizable 1TB SSD which we never really see in laptops.  

MSI GF75 | Nvidia GTX 1650 Ti | Intel Core i5 10300H | 17-inch |1080p |144Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1499 $889 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (save $610)
The extra $200 spent on this machine will net you a larger screen, and one with a refresh rate of 144Hz, too. The GTX 1650 Ti should deliver decent frame rates at the native 1080p resolution in most games too. That 512GB SSD is more than welcome too, especially with the storage hogs that games such as Call of Duty can be these days.

MSI Creator M16 | RTX 3050 Ti 4GB| Intel Core i7-11800H |16-inch | 2560x1600 | 60Hz | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,599 $1,149 at Adorama (save $470) (opens in new tab)
If you do more work than play, this MSI Creator should be right up your alley. This laptop has a great display 1600p display and should be able to handle all of your photo and video editing needs along with with some light gaming. 

Alan has been writing about PC tech since before 3D graphics cards existed, and still vividly recalls having to fight with MS-DOS just to get games to load. He fondly remembers the killer combo of a Matrox Millenium and 3dfx Voodoo, and seeing Lara Croft in 3D for the first time. He's very glad hardware has advanced as much as it has though, and is particularly happy when putting the latest M.2 NVMe SSDs, AMD processors, and laptops through their paces. He has a long-lasting Magic: The Gathering obsession but limits this to MTG Arena these days.
