Looks pretty good for a 1050TI 4GB and a 17.3" Screen. Was this price without the free extras at the beginning of March, just thought i'd throw this one in the mix, for those looking. I've seen a few of the same names on laptop threads, so this might help them out if still on the hunt. It might not suit everyone as we all tend to have different requirements

Comes with a free MSI backpack, mouse pad, and what looks like stickers and a gaming dragon figure of some kind? Not a bad freebies at all, that bag looks decent.

Not sure if that's the same model that I purchased (GL72M 7REX), but by the spec it looks like it, and the sound is alright.
Don't buy it- terrible, poor quality plastic. It feels cheap and you will have fingerprints all over it within 3 days. I bought a similar model some time ago and I regret it.
Looking for a laptop with a 1060 anyone know of a decent deal

Yeah, i5 will be fine with 1060, and for the ram upgrade:
"8 GB DDR4 2133MHz SDRAM Onboard Memory, 1 x SO-DIMM socket for expansion, up to 16 GB SDRAM"
So adding 16gb stick you'll get 24gb of RAM in total (or 16gb if you add only 8gb stick)

If it's anything like the PL62 then that's wrong and it's actually pretty decent quality and doesn't pick up prints at all.
