Buying a new laptop

I’m looking into buying a new laptop and I found a model I like. It’s the MSI GL62M 7RD-056. I can get it here: https://cukusa.com/msi-gl62m-7rd-056-15-6-vr-ready-gaming-laptop.html/ with 32 Gb RAM for about $1100. I would appreciate any feedback regarding this model, MSI products generally, or the website I plan on using. Thanks.

Howdy!. If you are planing to get a laptop from MSI, make sure that the GPU in the product is a GTX 1060 and above. I know i would chose a GTX 1070 over a 1060 any day., but not a GTX 1050 GPU.

Or just save up for this little one.

Thanks for the reply. Is there really that much of a difference from the 1050 to the 1060? I’m kind of clueless, as the last laptop I bought was a Toshiba Sattelite for school back in 2012.

Here are the difference between both GPUs

In other words, the 1060 is more powerful than a GTX 1050 and a GTX 980, plus it can handle VR really well, i would say that you will be able to game on real smooth and cool.

Appreciate the quick response, I’ll keep searching for models with the 1060 or better.

The one i posted for you is a monster of a laptop when it comes to gaming. Best of luck in your search.

Hey everyone, wanted to quickly ask you guys about some laptop recommendations.

Looking for a laptop that basically can run:
Fallout 3, New Vegas, and 4
Minecraft
Killer Instinct
Autodesk Inventor (beyond 15)
PTC Creo
Solidworks
Clip Studio Pro EX

So far I’ve looked on HP’s website because I’ve had one for several years now, and it still runs like a new computer, but as it is dated, I want something that runs with a little more modernized tech. Also, HP is running a deal, 20% off on Omen line PCs and laptops over $1099. I can save a big portion of the price with that alone.

So far, what I’m thinking is this:

Omen Laptop 17t
Intel® Core™ i7-8750H (2.2 GHz, up to 4.1 GHz, 9 MB cache, 6 cores) + NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 (6 GB GDDR5 dedicated)
16 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (2x8GB)
17.3" diagonal 4K IPS anti-glare WLED-backlit (3840 x 2160)

The rest isn’t probably as useful that info, as it mostly pertains to bells and whistles like backlit keyboard, wireless device, etc.

Is that something that can probably master what I’m aiming for, or do I need to aim higher probably? I’m confident in the Intel core, but it’s the GTX 1060 that probably most people would have an opinion on. But from 1060 to 1070 is another $250 and this thing is major expensive at that point. Also, as great as it would be, I’ll probably pass on the 1080.

Also, if anyone has any alternatives to this model altogether, let me know.

I’m happy with my laptop, but it is a couple of years old now and cannot play all of the new games that come out. It can, however, play KI, Fallout 4, Tekken 7, Battletech, Minecraft, Skyrim, and Conan Exiles. It does not play the latest Doom well, although technically it can play it.
And I’m not saying to buy what I have, since it is a little older, but it can give you a comparison for what you want.
It is a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series
i5 core 6300hq 2.3 ghz up to 3.2 ghz
Nvidia geforce gtx 960M 4 GB
15.6" screen
8 gb ram
1 tb+ 8 GB cache

It was only $750

As you can see, it’s not a high end laptop, but it has served me very well and didn’t cost a fortune. It runs a lot of modern-ish games and plays Killer Instinct.
