Here’s a neat trick: If you want a high-end gaming laptop but don’t want to overspend, consider the Corsair Voyager A1600. If you buy it from the Corsair US web store, add a pc case like this and then use the code NEW CONSTRUCTIONyou can pick up the laptop and case for significantly less than the cost of the laptop alone.
Indeed, this $1800 laptop that debuted in December of last year for $2300, complete with Ryzen 9 CPU, 32GB of DDR5 RAM, 2TB of NVMe storage, a 16-inch 2560×1600 (16:10) 240Hz display and Radeon RX 6800M graphics card, down to just $1536. And you get a free case, essentially, that you can resell later if you don’t need it. Or save it and build a PC in it, because these Corsair cases are really lovely!
But is the laptop good? I think it’s a credible first effort in a challenging category, given that Corsair made a name for itself with cases, power supplies, fans, and RAM. The laptop looks great, has a solid build quality, and performs well; it just doesn’t outperform competing systems with thicker chassis and higher-end Intel or Nvidia components. As you may have noticed, it’s an all-AMD laptop with Team Red CPU and GPU, so it scores some synergy points there, and respectable battery life as a result.
reviews, like east of pc magPlease cite the build quality, taller-than-usual 16:10 aspect ratio display, mechanical keyboard, Thunderbolt support, and 1080p webcam as major positives; The only downside found is the specs you get for the price, now perfectly settled with this deal.

So all in all a solid laptop for the money, especially when you get it for nearly $800 less than when it launched just four months ago! This is a super nifty deal, so we have to tip our hats to Reddit user /u/3ng1neer who first found this combo a bit sneaky.
