Terrific Deal. 1660 Ti in a $750 laptop is an amazing price, and with decent specs all around as well, especially the sweet 120Hz display panel. The only thing you MIGHT want to change is adding a second 8GB RAM stick, but otherwise you can hit the ground SPRINTING with this thing.

I have this laptop but with the 17 8750h and rtx 2060 and 32gb of ram. I took it apart and repaste everything cause msi did the worst paste job I've ever seen.

Even after adding arctic mx-4 properly she was still getting 100c running rocket league and throttling. I had to completely disable the cpu turbo in the bios so now she's clocked at like 2.2.

I lost about 10fps but she doesn't get warmer than 70c now.

These laptops are not good value, your gonna spend $1000 as soon as you buy it to upgrade ssd, ram, repaste the thing and still spend hours and hours optimizing because they have these cpu's setup like retards.

Slow response time which makes it ironically not the best for gaming.

Great price for this. A lot of people wouldn't consider a gaming laptop with 60hz, myself included, very rarely have I seen a 120hz one for less than $800.

Not a true IPS display, IPS type and does anyone know if the 1660 to is Max q or not

Edit- Why downvoted? You ever put a real ips next to an IPS type display? They are garbage lol
Eh I game on a 144hz TN panel and I'm more than happy. This laptop is a STEAL. What an incredible value. I can tell you guys about my first laptop...Pentium 75mhz for $3,000

Actually not that many, these 9 series laptops are severely power bound just like the 8 series.

For example, CSGO only fares ~160-300fps with ALL the competitive launch settings , whereas a desktop CPU can do 300-700.

The minimum FPS is the problem for esports titles. the cpu locks to 4ghz during gaming.

Why does anyone need 300fps playing csgo. I max fps 144 and underclock my gpu and set max fan to 40%. Runs quiet never gets hot. Smooth with a constant 144fps. I'm playing on an old i7 3770 with a 1060.
