Time to get a gaming laptop? Cyber Monday (opens in new tab) deals are a great time to do so. We found these two laptops that offer tremendous punch for the dollar, with beefy enough specs to power through the latest PC games. Buying a system for about $1,000 all-in sounds appealing, and Newegg currently has two deals that deliver.

Right now, the MSI GF65 Thin 10UE-071 on sale for $1,049 at Newegg (opens in new tab), including a $100 savings via a mail-in rebate card. Alternatively, Gigabyte G5 KC on sale for $999 @ Newegg (opens in new tab) after a $50 mail-in rebate card.
