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!

How is this 2060 model compared to the one listed for $1299 with a GTX3060. Is that not a good deal? https://www.costco.com/msi-gf75-t...36982.html
That's a "thin and light" lower spec model. The 3060 is only 75W and it's slower than the 2060 in the GE75. The panel has poorer specs for response, color, and brightness. Only red keyboard backlighting. Less drive options.

Here is a review of the 15.6" version: https://www.notebookcheck.net/MSI...258.0.html

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.
They had that type of resolution in the 90s???

From what I've read, the code is sent via email to the email address on file with your Costco account.

How long will it take. Any idea on that?

It might have come out in 2000.

"The specs for ThinkPad A21p 2629 comes in these configurations with a retail price tag. The configuration IBM provides comes with a 850MHz Intel Mobile Pentium III n/a Ultra ATA/33 USB/PCMCIA 32.0 GB Windows 98 SE or Windows 2000 Professional, ATI Rage Mobility 128, 15.0" UXGA TFT 16 MB SDRAM."

Yes, he took the plunge after he discovered who was the buyer.

Laptops tend to last one to three years.
I sit because they overheat? If so, why don't you just reapply the thermal paste?

Quote from primarchlion :
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 =(
GM is stopping production of vehicles in several plants because of the chip shortage. This is today's news.

Quote from FrankJo :
Only consistent complaint I see is that thing has fans that are loud when idle and *very* loud when gaming. Anyone with this model or similar have an opinion based on previous experience? Curious just how much of that is exaggerated and if it's something that would be unusable in an area where you're around other people due to noise.
A dead silent computer during video conferencing (not a gamer) is important to me. See rruff's comment (here and other posts) on the topic. I used his suggestions and undervolted my processor, then used "Silent Option", and my GE76 is now dead silent.

Can someone verify if this actually has high-res audio and "Giant Speakers" similar to this: https://www.msi.com/blog/gp63-73-...-other-nbs

I ask because I found old reddit posts saying that costco models are "cheapened" sometimes. Yes, there's folly in chasing laptop sound, but I don't like headphones.

Did MSI improve it in their RTX 3060 version which is now available for sale at Costco? What's the wattage on that one? Strangely, they didn't rename the laptop from GF75 to GF76 which leads me to believe that the only difference is the video card not the overall laptop.
