If you’ve still got money burning a hole in your pocket after the Steam Winter Sale, good news! Valve's assault on your wallet returns with the Steam Lunar New Year sale, which kicked off Thursday and runs through 10 a.m. Pacific on Monday, February 15.

The deals aren’t quite as steep this time around, but there are still bargains galore. Steam’s landing page places personal picks curated from Valve’s recommendation engine right up top. After that, the spotlight shines on games organized by genre, such as co-op or action games.

Steam’s servers are currently choking on themselves, as they do so often when new sales kick off, but we spotted Dirt 5, Fallout 4 VR, Marvel Avengers, various Dark Souls games, Dragonball Fighter Z, Surviving Mars, Frostpunk, Planet Coaster, Baldur’s Gate II Enhanced Edition, Assetto Corsa, No Man’s Sky, and a whole lot more going for 50 percent-plus off, with several games hitting the 85-percent-off mark. Valve tells us there are tens of thousands of games on sale during the event.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
