I've had my eye on this for sometime. The lowest it has ever been is £999.99, so I think this might be a good deal considering the specs.
I have one of these bought from Amazon just before christmas. Its a good laptop but the finish is matt and its terrible for showing finger marks. The matt finish on the mouse pad and mouse buttons has gone shiny in places from use. YMMV

There are only a couple of laptops available for under 1k with a 6gb 1060. Most are at least £100-150 more. I've been browsing various places for weeks now and noticed this.

Anyone recommend a good 1060 or 1070 laptop?
This would do nicely for anyone wanting management games and some old classic. It would also play new games but you would have to tone down the settings 1080p medium.
These msi laptops are really nice. I bought the pl62 for £598 before Christmas and fitted my own M.2 drive.

Theyre not too hard to get apart and you don't void the warranty doing so.

The screens on these are better than the IPS screen in my HP laptop.

A good laptop, but no IPS is a let down as is the lack of memory. I have a similair MSI, to upgrade the memory requires a guitar plectrum to get the back off. Ludites be aware no VGA

I checked - avg £168 on ebay. So... yeah.
After having to return a motherboard, I'm never buying anywhere but Amazon.

I returned a mobo to scan and it has taken 4 weeks. The last time I returned a computer component to amazon, it took 2 days and there was no hassle.

Some inexperienced people who got into mining somewhat recently might panic sell on ebay but it won't be significant, the price will still be high and other miners will pick them right back up again. New cards need to come out from NVIDIA and AMD ASAP.
I don't find this card too bad as have the 1070 version, of course the 1080 makes more heat though. It's quieter than my asus turbo 1060 though

Of course it goes without saying that people using this site should never look at anything that they have not thoroughly researched first. Although maybe sometimes someone, without (for example) an encyclopedic knowledge of current motherboards, may just be browsing and wonder what makes a particular item such a good deal or even, what is it.

I'm not saying titles should be wildly technical and include details like, AMD or Intel but would it have been so unreasonable to put a basic bit of info like, motherboard, in there somewhere?
Solid board, good VRM cooling and will take any Ryzen to the magic 4ghz (if CPU allows of course). Missing sata ports and SLI from the x370 line but that's about it. Shouldnt affect most users.

Also can only reach 2933 stably with my 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance 3200, any higher and cold bootups become irratic.Though there are many revisions of these dimms, and the ones with Hynix chips(as mine are) struggle on all Ryzen boards not just MSI.Other than that, perfectly adequate board. There've been several bios updates over the months, but none recently.


Waiting for a BIOS update as the lack of ability to OC the Ryzen platform is becoming frustrating. Had a few issues here and there which are annoying to me - like you have - but wouldn't be deemed an issue to other users.

OCing the RAM has been an issue for me - stuck at 2400mhz but opted for 32gb as I mainly edit video on my rig rather than game.

I probably wouldn't opt for this board personally, but it's a good price for those looking for an entry in the Ryzen platform.

This is correct. The infinity fabric runs at 0.5 X RAM speed, so the faster the ram, the faster the cores communicate with each other.

That's why Ryzen speed is so ram dependant.

For the sake of fairness, intel 8th gen CPU's are also affected by RAM speeds, but anything over 2800-3000mhz with them yields far lower returns compared to Ryzen.

I used the same ram on 2 * Asrock Pro4 b350m (was about £60) builds and got stable at 3200. Although as you say, could have been the revision I got.

At stock voltage with Ryzen 1700 (stock cooler) one PC is stable at 3.6 and the other at 3.9. no doubt I could get more if I got an after market cooler and bumped the voltage to 1.35.

Steady £300 a month profit AFTER electricity costs from 4 cards (1080, titan X maxwell, 1060 and 980ti).. Got a 1050ti on the way and once enough in the bank again (after electricity costs deducted, always pay the costs first) I will be ordering another card, prob a 1070ti. Plan is to add/grow every time that I can, paying for hardware from profit.

This time of year it has a secondary benefit, reduced heating bill... As the weather warms the rig will be put in the garage and an extractor fan fitted to the garage to drag the hot air out.

Yup had one for a few months as well. It is great 3GB only limiting in a few games like GTA V. It has a smallish battery but supports optimus so switches to the intel GPU when not needed which stretches things, but don't expect anything over 3 hours.

Screen is really good, keyboard is ace. Trackpad has a strange texture to it which can feel awkward, but a simple sticker over the top fixes that!

I caved in, thanks OP. Purchased, now to decide whether to get the 1700x …I caved in, thanks OP. Purchased, now to decide whether to get the 1700x or 1800x...


It's worth keeping in mind that Ryzen+ is due out in Q1 2018, which should bring at the very least some clockspeed improvements (though there have also been rumours of additional cores). I just grabbed a 1600 for £136 when all of the current lineup were reduced a couple of months ago, in anticipation of upgrading to an octa core from the refresh.

Wouldn't want to drop that much on an msi laptop after the issues two of my mate had with customer service when both laptops developed a fault after 18 months (different specs bought at different times).

both struggled to get them 'fixed' under warranty, one gave up and the other got it fixed but was without the laptop for 3 months.

but yeah, any laptop at this price should probably have a 1080 or be an alienware or asus at least.
Proper gaming laptops pretty much seem to hold their price. I bought mine about a year ago and the price for today's equivalent is about the same. As for getting a GTX 1080 laptop for this price? Add 200 quid on top of that unless you are talking a special offer.

Thought surely have a 1080 in this for the price. Computers so overpriced these days. Remember getting an alien ware few years ago for £400 new. Should have been£800. Still one of the best deals I got on here
1070 for that price should be 1080
