Yeah, you'd be doing them a favor by absorbing this stock at this point.

This laptop is only worth $600 at the absolute most, but I wouldn't pay more than $500. It's a very old graphics card and CPU.

AMD releases their 3000 series CPU's next month, their APU will equal this.

I know some people who would be all over i5, 1080p notebook for $600, don't even care about GPU.
Please share.

Yeah, warm at best. I paid this 5 months ago for essentially the same setup but with a 1050ti instead of a 1050. (Microsoft store Dell G3 in December).

5 months later I'd expect not only a 1050ti, but a $50 - $100 discount over this price.

On the positive side... this has a much better screen than the dell (I actually replaced the dell's screen with the model that's probably in this particular laptop).

I believe the CPU is just 1 year old, not 3.

$800 seems like a decent price.

Hi everyone.
I just want to share my experience with MSI.
I bought few years ago a AIO gaming Msi desktop with 970(if i dont mistake). Just after one year graphic card was not working anymore.that computer had 2 graphics card,integrated plus geforce. ofcorse broke the second one.I brought my computer in and after paying service fees they told me couldnt get fix because they didn't make anymore that graphics card for AIO.so i had with me a 4k conputer with 32gb ram and good cpu but not graphic card that i could replace.they didnt care. Zero fuk.
Very disappointed with a company like MSI.personally i will never shop with them again.I know that probably most of the names out there would treat me the same but from MSI i would expect something more

If I don't mistake, periodically SDM has lenovo with better specs for 899 plus lots points back in your optimum card,up to 350 dollars back in points

This is good for those who aren't specific about their PC parts ie. as long as it runs decent which it will. I'm sure the more enthusiast would rather spend $200 or more for a much faster one.

Just to provide some perspective and options for anyone looking at this out there, there's the Dell G3 @ Microsoft going for $899 which has a GTX 1050ti (much better than this card) and was on sale for $800 last year.

GTX 1050 vs GTX 1050 ti
https://www.laptopmag.com/articles/nvid ... vs-1050-ti

Rise of the Tomb Raider (Medium/High) - 38 fps / 47 fps
Hitman (Ultra with DirectX12) - 30 fps / 39 fps
Grand Theft Auto V (Very High) - 23 fps / 27 fps
Metro: Last Light (High) - 23 fps / 28 fps
Rise of the Tomb Raider (Very High) - 18 fps / 20 fps

You're right the actual performance is not as big a difference as I'd assumed, but the extra 2GB VRAM does make a difference in some applications.

For example, the 4GB VRAM is the difference from playing Gears of War 4 in High settings @ over 60+ fps

vs Medium settings @ under 60fps (GTX 1050 2GB)

They mentioned CPU, why did you respond with GPU information?

Plus you mentioned 3 year old GPU and 3 year old CPU. Can you show us this info? I'm failing to see how it's 3 years old. Seriously need a downvote button again to get misleading information out of the way and people off their high horse.
