Seems like a pretty good deal for MSI brand and for the specs… but maybe worth waiting for Black Friday?

Amazon product: MSI Bravo 15 A4DDR-009CA 15.6″ 120Hz Gaming Laptop AMD Ryzen7-4800H Radeon RX5500M 16GB 512GB NVMe SSD Win10
The MSI Bravo 15 is a great value. I have the 120 Hz model. It runs Windows 10 and Arch Linux perfectly. To get Arch Linux installed, turn off Secure Boot in the BIOS, make sure you install an EFI boot loader, and select that boot loader in the BIOS as well. All of the hardware is supported with open source drivers. | The discrete Radeon RX 5500 (Navi) works great, as does the built-in Renoir (Vega) graphics. No stability issues at all. At maximum performance, it does get pretty loud, but you can use CoreCtrl (available in the Arch Linux AUR) to set a lower power profile and settle it down a bit at the cost of some frames of course. | The built-in Intel AX200 WiFi chips actually performs well – I sustained 30-35 MB/sec (megabytes, not megabits) transfer speeds through my Asus RT-AX58U WiFi-6/802.11ax router during my testing with transfers on a CAT-7 LAN. As a bonus, it actually includes an Ethernet port as well, in case you’re still on an older WiFi standard but want half decent network performance. | The keyboard is not bad and while I’m not sure if it has a full n-key rollover (antighosting), I have yet to run into a key rollover issue while gaming. It’s also a pleasure to type on and is backlit. I haven’t really assessed the touchpad as I don’t think people who would care about the touchpad are the target demographic for a laptop like this. Annoyingly however, all of the USB ports are on the right side of the laptop, forcing you to partially obscure your mousepad with the USB cable. This is a minor gripe for a laptop that allows you high performance without forcing you to use an nVidia graphics card, however.
