Now let me tell you I hear you: Mail-in discounts are a hassle. I, like many of us, haven’t bothered to collect discounts for small purchases in the past because the $5 at stake wasn’t worth the trouble of getting out of my chair. But Gigabyte is a reputable vendor, so the submission and return process should be relatively painless, and we’re talking about $100 here—that’s a card worth filling.

A solid laptop at a great price, the Gigabyte G5 is a good way to take your Steam library on the road, if you’re looking for something a little more practical than a Steam deck. And don’t forget the $100 off!
Even without the discount, a solid CPU, a good amount of RAM, and a 30-series GPU for under $1000 make this a good laptop at a good price. If you’re looking to take your Steam collection on the road with something more substantial (and, perhaps, doable) than the Steam Deck, it’s definitely worth a look.
(And it’s definitely worth sending in that discount card. Don’t forget!)
