Sign of the times. This was $50 cheaper back In Feb (though that was without Outrider). But with most new generation laptops MIA and deals drying up, this is still a good deal.

Unlike most 10th Gen Intel laptops, MSI allows undervolting. I bought one and did the UV and OC and will try to answer any questions you have. UV makes a big difference on the CPU (runs faster at 45W than it did at 55W stock), and you can run it maxed out at 4.3GHz on all cores indefinitely if you have some workloads that need it. I boosted GPU performance >10% as well, using Afterburner. https://www.techpowerup.com/forum...75.279412/

As always from Costco:

90 day free returns.
2 year warranty (4 if you use their card).

Specs here (this is the 008 model): https://us.msi.com/Laptop/GE75-Ra...cification

Some things I like:

1) 17.3" 1080p display, 144Hz, >300nits, 3ms response, high contrast, 100% sRGB.
2) RTX 2060 is 115W, which means it's ~15% faster than 80W 2060s and 1660 Ti, and faster than many 2070 and 3060 laptops that are throttled to a lower wattage.
3) MSI supports UV on Intel CPUs which makes them much more competitive vs Ryzen. With the UV it's faster than a 4600H in Cinebench.
4) It has great speakers for a laptop
5) You can install two NVMe drives as well as a 2.5" drive.
6) Costco warranty and return policy!

Why are there never any good deals on NON-GAMING 17" laptops?

For me, 2060 mobile is inadequate. Medium to low settings in Warzone still not getting stable 144hz. What will the next game out need? Returned

Had this laptop, the speakers gave up after 3 weeks, I returned to Costco. MSI quality checks aren't as good.

I recall every front page 2060 laptop late last year having people pop in and say how "3060 is going to be this price in a couple months." I didn't really believe them, but I wish I had just bit the bullet back then because now I can't even get that 2060 laptop (not this one, I'm aware) for the ~$700 they were going for =(

Remember that stimmy check you received? Ya so does everyone else. It's called inflation. Get ready, it's only getting worse.

I have this laptop, can confirm the fans are loud without a headset at full blast. With that said I play Outriders without using 'performance' mode. I don't hear the fans with that change.

I had this laptop and it was great. The downsides for me were the fan noise, and the difficulty of getting into the internals of the laptop. The upsides were the screen was great, and it has the higher watt version of the 2060 which is technically better than some of the other options out there.

You do need to undervolt it to keep temperatures reasonable, and the fans reasonably quiet. Getting into the advanced bios is a little tricky -- it requires pressing a few keys at the same time in the bios, then you can enable Intel XTU. I did a -120mv on CPU and a -50mv on iGPU and temperatures were in the 70s and 80s.

However, the fans still got fairly loud while actual gaming.

Replacing the hard drive is annoying in this as there's a bunch of small clips of which break, but the good thing is that it mostly stays together even if you break some of those clips.

I got this one when it went on sale last month, added another 16gb and m2 and it's perfect for what I do (programming and design). Been rocking a GT72VR for like 6 years, and the GE75 blows it away (which obviously it should).

Screen is great, absolutely no complaints there.

Battery life is pretty bad, so if you're going to be using this thing frequently without it plugged in I'd look elsewhere or make sure you utilize the battery saver mode. For the price it's a great deal.

It's a shame MSI laptops don't have G-Sync built into the displays. Many gaming laptops don't, actually. I'd buy this in a heartbeat if it did!

Laptops tend to last one to three years. If you have the space a desktop is better if you don't need to take your PC with you
1-3...? Yeah if you don't take care of it. I still have my Vostro 1500 from 2007.

I've had several the past few months. Lenovo Legions are awesome build quality. Just get one w a good screen. Legion 5 Pro is about to be released. That's what I'm waiting on.

Still got a IBM A21P from... 1999? It really only got used for 7 years though. I think those retailed for ~$6k new... I bought it in 2002 for $550. Very nice display for the time, 1600x1200 pixels.

I bought this last summer at full price hoping for a discount. I plug in a monitor for my main screen and just use the laptop screen for Discord. It's always plugged in, sort of a portable desktop replacement.

Temps are great, gaming is great. I can play most things at the best settings. Never had any issues with crashes or lag. It was super easy to add another NVME drive and replace the HDD with another SSD.

Really happy with it. At $250 off it's a steal.

How is the listed laptop with GPU GTX-2060 (model - GE75) compared to the one listed for $1299 with GPU - GTX3060 (GF75). Isn't that good laptop/deal? https://www.costco.com/msi-gf75-t...36982.html
