The ASUS laptop is a portable lean gaming machine that offers a great, capable gaming laptop for well under $1000, whereas the MSI gaming desktop is at the more premium end of the scale but has a sweet selection of components that'll crunch through any game, task or combination of those and work that you throw at it.
- Save big in Newegg's daily Shell Shocker deals (opens in new tab)
Newegg often has gaming desktop deals and gaming laptop discounts, but the daily Shell Shockers can surprise and offer some great value every now and then. There's some components and parts for sale too, but for now we've picked out two machines that stand out.
The ASUS Tuf gaming laptop is on offer at just $799.99 (opens in new tab). This is a discount of just $50 but even that takes this into very good value indeed territory. Within it's 15.6"-screen chassis is a GTX 1650 graphics card, an i7-9750H processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. This will prove a great little machine with an underrated set of components. It proves that you can get a great cheap gaming laptop deal under $1000 (opens in new tab).
The MSI Trident PC is exquisite in every sense: design, component configuration and value for money. With a $130 discount taking its price down to $1,469, (opens in new tab) it has an RTX 2070 Super graphics card, an i7 9700F processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. Excellence all round. That'll munch through anything, plus it has the proven MSI gaming pedigree behind it - and it looks pretty cool, for what it's worth!
The main thing to remember for both of these deals is that they end today (PT), so you better act now if you want to take advantage.
