      What do you think? Personally waiting for the 30- series or any 2080 super deals that comes with the ampere being way better scare

      •  

        Yeah, very decent at the price. I'm struggling to find anything better, though for a wifi downgrade you could get a metabox with a
        Intel Core i7-10875H 2.3GHz - 5.1GHz, 8-Core, 45W, 16MB Cache

        for about $70 more. Probably not worth it.

          If the wifi is ac or wifi 5 then yeah I would take the cpu upgrade for $70 more.

          I know the laptop cpu's are held back by lower TDP's aka power usage but you would definitely see some slight improvements going from 6 core to 8 core and at that price level $70 is worth it imho that or put the money into more ram or storage.

          But having played at both 1080p and 2160p now the difference is pretty insane even with the huge fps drop it is hard sometimes to keep the gfx at 1080p.

          Depends on what you are after I suppose.

            @AlienC: It's an Intel 9462 AC.
            Extra $29 gets a better upgrade.

            Forgot to mention no windows included in price, though that's of debatable concern

      Someone I know got either this exact model or a very similar MSI laptop and while the quality overall seems reasonably good, the touchpad buttons broke off after only a month or so of fairly gentle use (!) and warranty support is return to base in Sydney.

      Also not possible to upgrade the hard drive or memory without breaking a warranty sticker as you have to pull the whole base off. No hatches.

      There is no comparison, a 1660ti vs a 2070 super for the price difference.

        GTX 1660Ti isn't bad.
        I don't expect to be playing AAA games in ultra setting on a thin laptop. I use a desktop for that. For laptop I aim for portability with some gaming capability.
        Hence GTX 1660Ti is best bang for buck on a thin laptop.
        RTX 2060 MaxQ is OK too and are usually around the same price range.
        Get 2070 Super if you have the $$$, its around $400 extra for the better GPU.

          Op clearly isn't looking for a gtx card

        •  

          Also GPU changes rapidly. 2070 Super maybe good now, but in a couple of years time, it will only be average.
          Hence upgrading desktop GPU is more economical than changing laptops every couple of years.

          I have got some old laptops with great GPU at the time (eg. GTX660M, 980M), but they are all out of date now.

          But if you want 2070 Super, this is a good price.

    At this point in time and this kind of money, it's time to wait for RTX3***

      this.

  •  

    I'll personally wait for a RTX3xxx or RDNA2 laptop even if end of year , bought a 1650 for the interim.

  •  

    I bought it for about that price imported by Amazon US in October 2020
    Pretty happy with it. Slightly cheaper from Amazon

      That's just 2070, this one is super

  •  

    Is the Super actually better than the regular 2070? I mean I know its a great product on the desktop, but what about mobile? Also, what is the situation with storage and memory expansion/upgradability?

    •  

      Yeah, pretty decent. About 15% performance gains while using a little less power.
