it is really getting confusing between great pricing and what is inside those laptops. we've researched to the point of getting VERY confused.

in your opinion, what is a great price for a gaming laptop that can be used for games in between projects of premiere pro and after effects? (alienware or msi or... ?) during the black friday/cyber monday events? our budget is $1200-ish.

THANK YOU!

Would you be using the laptop for Premiere Pro / After Effects too?

Realistically, you need to get a baseline for what's available in the ~$1,500 range to have any chance of a <$1,200 Black Friday/Cyber Monday price, IMO.

The thing is, I see a lot of i7-9750H + 1660TI laptops for that pricepoint.... Some have an RTX2060.

Then, there's this one:
https://www.newegg.com/black-msi-gl-series-gl73-9sd-409-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834155241

Same spec (lower RAM and SSD though) for $999 + $100 rebate (so $899).
Personally, on info available right now, I'd look to buy that and upgrade it for maybe $100-$200 tops.
