There have been plenty of great deals on mid-range gaming laptops lately, but if you're looking for something high-end, today might be your day. One model of the Asus ROG Strix Scar II laptop with an RTX 2070 graphics card is now $1,499.99 on Amazon. That's a $100 drop from the previous price, and $500 below the original MSRP.

The hardware of this laptop includes an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card with 8GB of VRAM, 16GB of 2666MHz DDR4 memory, a 512GB PCIe SSD, and support for both 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0. The screen is a large 15.6-inch 1080p "IPS-Type" display running at 144Hz.

The combination of a high-end Intel CPU with one of Nvidia's best graphics cards means this laptop is ready for any game you throw at it, or really any other task.
