Really though? I dont think a one generation older processor, wifi card, and gfx card will affect user experience enough to be that noticeable for 90% of intended use. Most people already have external hdd's, and RAM is so cheap these days. The difference between 120hz and 144hz is almost negligible. If you have all that, it's like $50 to upgrade your ram and you'd be good. This is a great deal for most people for most purposes.
...yikes.
It would only make sense for people with routers compatible a lot of people I know don't even have routers that are WiFi 6 so there won't be any gains to be had. That being said the WiFi module is replaceable item it sits in a mini pci a lot however I don't know if the antenna arrangement is the same so there's that.

This looks like a good deal to me, but before I get blacklisted for thinking 8gb of ram can be usable-
Does somebody more knowledgeable than me also think it's a good deal? 😂

In my opinion it is not worth the price. It has an older version of Wi-Fi (ac), you need to buy another stick of RAM, you're more than likely also have to buy another hard drive, the panel is 120 HZ (most are coming with 144hz), and the CPUs from last gen. By the time you get more ram and a hard drive it is close to $150. It all just depends on what you want to do with it however i feel it is worth the extra $200 to get a laptop that doesn't have these shortfalls.

No wifi 6, make sure you can update the wifi card before buying it.

Sure it would. HP Omen is a much better overall package and was recently on sale for $1050

Why do people list MSI laptops on here? They have a well known defect on their hinges being plastic and breaking all the time. To me, that is a deal breaker. Also do a Google search on MSI and how they treat product reviewers. I used to buy MSI GeForce video cards, but never again as two died right out of the warranty whereas never had an issue with EVGA or others. Am I off base here?

If you want a REAL laptop, go to origin PC and get one with a real DESKTOP AMD CPU. As soon as they go to 3080, I will buy one. But I priced out one with 12C/24T, 2070, 64GB ram for around $1789. Cleo/Origin/Sabre/Others/etc are all the same laptop but with different configurations and prices and WAY cheaper than comparable laptops from Dell (who I have owned at least 12 of their laptops), Alienware (part of Dell I know), Asus, Gigabyte, MSi/etc. If you like Intel, they even have one with Intel desktop CPU - and YES, the CPU is upgradeable in the AMD and Intel versions.
