$50 more than Acer Predator Helios 300, but double the SSD and bigger battery great deal. I'm about to RMA my Helios 300 as the graphics card is acting up again (2nd laptop already). May just try to return to amazon and buy this one...

I can tell you right now the rebates can take up to 3 months. I did a rebate with msi for a GPU took almost 3 months to get. I got my rebate but be warned that it will take that long to get one.

I've had this same laptop for only 2 weeks, so far I like it. Only complaint is it's a fingerprint magnet and needs to be constantly cleaned. It also came with huge ugly stickers, and took a lot of time and effort to remove them and all the adhesive.

I've had a lot of problems with my 1070 variant of this brand of laptop and have seen similar issues during my endless troubleshooting that also applies to the 1060 variants.

There's also more people posting on forums and help boards than can be imagined, asking for solutions to all of the similar issues I've experienced: bluetooth driver out of date / bluetooth device not recognized (it's a USB mounted card apparently), BIOS needs to be updated if it's not been out of box, sound system crackling randomly, display port not functioning properly, overheating because the GPU is incorrectly clocked, crappy "hardware management" bloatware that doesn't work (i.e. MSI SCM), Killer networking drivers stall out and you no longer have wi-fi until a reset (update your drivers to the right ones to fix, I've discovered), etc. etc. etc.

Lucky you, my MSI MB took me almost 6 months, and a GPU took me 4 months +

I believe you buddy. This is not my first rodeo with MSI rebate. I had a few times call them because my rebate was over 3 months. I did end up getting it but they like to bank you forgetting about it. You must keep tabs on it or they win.
