How would this compare with the Intel Core i7-9750H
With 8GB memory/512GB SSD + 1TB HDD and 4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 for the Lenovo Y540 during Black Friday?

Slower, the 560x is like a 1050

Just a friendly reminder that RBC offers has a $50 statement credit if you use your RBC credit card, effectively making this $649

Just called in to get a refund on the difference since I got it at $799 the other day.

I have a similar Asus to this, the one that was on here a few months back that has the Ryzen 5 and the 1650. I'd say the Ryzen is a bit of a bottleneck on it.

I doubled the ram for $50 or so from an Amazon deal and it makes a huge difference.

Overall, I wouldn't be afraid to buy this unit if price was the main factor when it comes to a gaming laptop.

Mine plays everything I've tried running on it.

Assuming you can get the Lenovo one, I would say the extra $120 is worth it. Both the CPU and GPU are faster than this Asus model. However, if the Asus one comes with 144hz screen, it would be a different story though.

Normally this would make sense. However, this is Red flag Deals where people switch banks just for 0.00000001% extra.
