It's an incredible price for that laptop. Will run anything these days at high/ultra.

Yeah that's what has me holding out on these MSI lappies. I've been hearing of a lot of build issues. Can't justify paying over $1k for a lappy that may or may not have an issue out of the box. Might wait a few months til they clean up their QA process on their gtx 10 series lappies a bit.

Either that or I'm going to wait on a good alienware dell outlet sale.

Having said that, this is a pretty solid deal.

as far as the deal is concerned, the deals for the same laptop from newegg in the past were better. the sales tax for buying from best buy kills it (unless you use cash back to wipe it out).

on the plus side at least you get rewards points

What's a 'build issue'? Apologies for the ignorance but it seems like a vague term. My best guess is that it's easily damaged or something

with these plastic laptops, the plastic around the hinges cracks after opening and closing several hundred times.

I think people are confussing this model with the GP62VR that newegg had last week. Neweggs Model didn't have a SSD and only came with 8G of RAM and no DVD drive, also that screen was a TN and not IPS. Most importantly this model at Bestbuy.com has 256SSD and 1TB storage drives.

Differences between Newegg GP62VR Leopard and Bestbuy GE62VR Apache models

Bestbuy has IPS panel, Newegg model didn't
Bestbuy comes with 16G Ram , Newegg only came with 8G of Ram.
Besbuy comes with 256SSD drive and 1TB storage drive Newegg only came with 1TB drive.
Besbuy comes with DVD drive, Neweggs model didn't.
Bestbuy model is Aluminum and Neweggs model is plastic.
Besbuy price is $1099.00 no rebates needed. Newegg price $999.00 - $100 mail in rebate.

I thought the additional $300 was worth it for me to upgrade to more ram, IPS panel and 256SSD boot drive.

And 3G of video ram is plenty according to this guy.

How important is 6GB of Ram for the 1060 vs the 3GB that this one has?
