MSI GF63 - opinions? - best price? -other options?


Recommended Posts

I have been keeping my eyes open for a new laptop for the last while. A general use 14-15.6 that can handle some gaming. I want it to have thin boarders and be <2kg. <$1000.

I have just stumbled on an MSI GF63. Gtx1050 8gb i5 8300H. $900 at newegg. Only has a 7200rpm drive, but I would drop an ssd in.

Anyone have any input on it? Know where I could get an even better price (or a better model for a similar price)? Any other options you can think off?

Let me know what you think?

Honestly had a few msi laptops for the past few years and love mine. Only thing I noticed is there is a lower cost lenovo with a better GPU but worse CPU. Never used lenovo so not sure of quality.

Msi laptops tend to last even abused like mine but the audio ports tend to be sub par just a heads up.

Looking around I cannot seem to find a much better deal at all but a cheap nvme drive would make that thing fly :)

Thanks for the info reference msi laptops. Its been tough trying to find a smaller/lighter 14-15.6 that doesnt suck and without breaking the bank. I dont want to spend a lot, since I generally only use my laptop when away from home. Not decided on this yet, but I am wondering if I should pull the trigger or not.

there is also a $80 mail-in rebate on that model.

Honestly seems like a good sale even with just the 1050 4gb but that is still a solid 1080p gaming card. Also a low cost Nvme drive will power you through

That is a solid laptop for gaming and everyday use, sold 3 at place I work at. So far every customer happy. There is a HP nvme 1TB on sale for like $219. That would work great.

Agree with it being a solid laptop, I will need to upgrade one of these days but my old GT70 with 970m Got the laptop in 2015 and it is still solid today. what amazes me the most is the battery is solid.

Also MSi laptops are super easy to upgrade so you will have no worries there.My stock specsi7 4710mq8gb ddr3 1333gtx 970m1tb 7200rpm drive

Now I have32gb DDR3 16001.5TB Raid 0 MX300 2 750gb SSDs

The i7 is starting to age due to bad cooling and same with the 970m need to upgrade them in the future :)

Think you will enjoy the new MSI for years but did the sale end already?

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software
    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
