Gaming Laptop - (GTX 1660 ti / RTX 2060)

I'm currently on the hunt for a 1660 ti or 2060 laptop.

Here are my current requirements (can be altered for a good deal)
i5 or i7 (8th or 9th gen)
120/144 hz display
12/16gb ram
GTX 1660 ti or RTX 2060

Basically I want a low(ish) budget but decent rig. Like mentioned earlier I am willing to part with the 144hz display or i7 for a low price.

Here's what I've found so far (deal expired) (SEE ATTACHMENT)**

Best *warm* deal I found was a Lenovo Legion Y540 with an i5, 12gb ram, gtx 1660 ti, 144 hz display, 1318.19 $ CAD +TX (BEFORE EBATES 9%)

Do you think I will find a better price before/on BF? The current 'sneak peak BF deals' are a joke. I will keep this thread updated if I find interesting offers, please post if you find anything.

$1200ish is pretty good for a 1660Ti.
I can't get below $1500 for a 2060.

Then again I'm looking at 17" instead of 15"

Lowest I found was 1419.59 $ CAD +tx (before 9% cashback) for a 2060 (with an i5 and 12gb ram).

I'm hoping a similar deal will pop up but with 16gb ram and an i7 (wishful thinking)

Thanks for the info though, I'll definitely keep looking around.

RAM can always be changed but CPU/GPU/screen size can't.
I wouldn't fret too much about the RAM.

You realize we'll eventually see slim profile 14" true gaming ultraportables. It's our Kennedy moonshot, and no one is talking about it.

The Flex 14 is the closest thing in the ultraportable space.

I mean that Yoga that @Elrondolio posted is technically true gaming since it has a real GPU.
But I HIGHLY doubt we're gonna get a 14" with a 2060 or better. Even if they did release one, I'm not gonna game on 14".
I wouldn't even game on a 15" unless it was a great deal. 17" or bust.
